There were two times in my life I got to see Raiders of the Lost Ark on the big screen; the first was when it was originally released in a smallish theater in Ottawa, KS.  The second time was in Atlanta, GA some 15 years later at the magnificent Fox Pavilion.  Both times were magical, and seeing the adventures of one of my favorite characters in what has to be one of my all time favorite movies is always a thrill.

Who is Joe Johnston?  This is the guy who directed The Rocketeer, which has a huge fan following.  Since First Avenger: Captain America is set during World War II, he should be perfect to guide the production. “Captain America” will be a World War II-set movie, and the character will appear in the modern day-set
