Captain America HAS A DIRECTOR!

The latest in the round of comic films to hit the silver screen just got a little bit closer to being made.

Today, Marvel Studios officially announced that Joe Johnston will be helming The First Avenger: Captain America as it makes it’s slow trot towards releasing in 2011.

Based on Johnston’s track record (which includes highlights such as The Rocketeer and lowlights including Jurassic Park III), I’m pretty indifferent towards this pick.  But let’s be honest, it really comes down to the script, and who they put in the suit.

Hopefully they make a solid choice.

My preference? Let’s throw Matty Damon under the chainmail and cowl.
