Interviews Opinion

Joe Johnston took some time out of his busy schedule to answer a few questions about his highly anticipated take on Captain America. He talks again about some of the movie's influences, as well as a possible sequel, after credits scene and seems to express an interest in seeing a Winter Soldier movie..



CBM I was wondering if you had been approached to direct the Cap sequel and if not, is it something you might be interested in doing?

JJ There's been no discussion about the sequel to date. I would be interested if the story is as unique as Captain America. That's a tall order, but if Markus and McFeely are writing it there's a very good chance it will be great. There are other interesting characters in the Marvel universe, for instance, the Winter Soldier, aka Sergeant James Buchanan Barnes.


I think many would be interested in a solo outing for Bucky/Winter Soldier since his popularity has soared in the comics recently. We know that this movie, like all of Marvel's previous ones, will tie into The Avengers. We have seen some set pics of Chris Evans speaking to Sam Jackson's Nic Fury and many believe that this will be the after credits scene. Was it difficult to come up with a way of leading into The Avengers given that Captain America is a period movie?

The scene between Chris Evans and Nick Fury was cut together from AVENGERS footage, so I had nothing to do with it other than agree to put it after the credits.


Cool, thanks for confirming! Early footage screenings have drawn comparisons with your previous movie The Rocketeer as well as Indiana Jones. Was that the vibe you were going for?

I mentioned using Raiders of the Lost Ark as a template for the period because it still feels completely contemporary and timeless even today. That's remarkable for a 30 year old film. I did not have The Rocketeer in mind at all, although at the twentieth anniversary screening I did notice a few general and a couple of very specific similarities. Totally coincidental, of course.


What can we expect from you next, anything in the pipeline?

I have no plans other than to spend part of the summer at a dinosaur dig in Montana, something I have missed the last two summers.


Huge thanks to Joe Johnston for taking the time to do this interview, and for the article pic. Captain America: TFA stars Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Samuel L. Jackson, Stanley Tucci and Hugo Weaving, and hits theaters July 22, 2011.
