Variety reports that Paramount Pictures has landed an exclusive deal with Marvel to distribute films of the remaining Marvel characters who have yet to hit the big-screen. Among the first to get the feature film treatment will be Captain America and Nick Fury.

How cool is this guy?:

Captain America

When they do Nick Fury, will they have the courage in this oh-so-PC age to go with the cigar?

Nick Fury

If they don't, it won't really be Nick Fury.

Awesome. I wonder how far they will go with the Cap origin, a supersoldier created by the government to fight the Nazis. (His longevity explained by the fact that he was frozen in a block of ice in the 1940s, thawing only after Namor, the Savage Sub-Mariner, threw him into the ocean where his thawing body was discoverd by the Avengers!) The Red Skull would be the obvious arch fiend in the first Cap movie, although I hope there is room for an appearance by Batroc the Leaper (a French villain). Oh the possibilities.

You are correct about Nick Fury and his cigar. I hope they get to Iron Man as well.

O/T, but I can't wait.

Stop me if you've heard this one:

When Osama bin Laden died, he was met at the Pearly Gates by George Washington, who slapped him across the face and yelled, "How dare you try to destroy the nation I helped conceive."

Patrick Henry approached, punched him in the nose and shouted, "You wanted to end our liberties but you failed."

James Madison followed, kicked him in the groin and said, "This is why I allowed our government to provide for the common defense!"

Thomas Jefferson was next, beat Osama with a long cane and snarled, "It was evil men like you who inspired me to write the Declaration of Independence."

The beatings and thrashings continued as George Mason, James Monroe and 66 other early Americans unleashed their anger on the terrorist leader.

As Osama lay bleeding and in pain, an Angel appeared. Bin Laden wept and said, "This is not what you promised me."

The Angel replied, "I told you there would be 72 Virginians waiting for you in Heaven. What did you think I said?"

I read somewhere that Captain America is now a black man.

Here it is http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/story/36556p-34505c.html

I should have known that I'd be almost a year behind the A.Q. jokes curve.

Loyal? You bet. You're my favorite non-lefty. Keep up the solid work!

I wonder if Reb Brown and David Hasselhoff are available?

As for messing with Cap's origin, how will it be affected by the current controversy over steroids? What else could the supersoldier formula be?

Will Nick Fury still be a WW2 vet and former Howling Commando, on life extension drugs?

Still, the SHIELD helicarrier ought to be cool.
