Today, Marvel gives us our first look at the one-of-a-kind, larger-than-life Captain America statue that they made in partnership with Comicave Studios, which goes on display at the Marvel Booth at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2016, July 20th.
After Comic Con, the statue sets forth for Steve Rogers' hometown of Brooklyn, New York where it will stay in Prospect Park for a couple weeks.
The statue will be inscribed with the words ‘I’m just a kid from Brooklyn’, a line of dialogue from ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’.
To commemorate the 75th anniversary of Captain America, Marvel just announced plans to unveil an enormous bronze statue of Captain America at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Cheers, Cap'n.
Alright, SPOILERS revealed in the paragraph below. Only keep reading if you want to know!
Last month many of us were left shellshocked, as jaws dropped to the floor and we learned Captain America had been a Hydra sleeper agent since he was a boy in Captain America: Steve Rogers #1.
Thing is, in spite of what Rogers might recall from his childhood, everything is not as it originally seemed. Indeed, from the creative team of writer Nick Spencer and artist Jesus Saiz, we learn in Captain America: Steve Rogers #2 that Steve's 'memories of indoctrination' were implanted by Kobic, the sentient cube that became a girl. And the buck don't stop there...it turns out Kobic had been under the influence of Red Skull for months.
Apparently, a congratulations is all you need to do to win the loyalty of Deadpool. It all started when Chris Evans(Captain America) sent a Tweet to Ryan Reynolds and ended with some hurt feelings from Ironman/Robert Downey Jr.
But Deadpool can be fickle...
In the end, he chose the only side worth choosing. #TeamHelloKitty will surely come out on top in Captain America: Civil War.
