Captain America Marvel NOW! Confirmed With Rick Remender and John Romita Jr.


And we have another Marvel NOW! announcement with Rick Remender and John Romita Jr. on the new Captain America.

Remender tells IFanboy that he will be going in a different direction than Ed Brubaker, and we'll also see a new villain, the Green Skull who wants to turn people into plants.

"Tonally, it’s very different...It’s a complete shift from what Ed was doing and I loved what Ed was doing, but if I were to try and emulate that or to continue that tone, it would be Ed light. It wouldn’t be the same thing. So I’m leaning in to what I like to do, which is high adventure, sci-fi, with spy fantasy, with a heavy focus on the man under the suit. It’s very character-focused conflict stuff," said Remender.

Regarding this new Green Skull:

"He is someone who believes that humanity is the cause of all problems on earth and he wants to turn humanity into soil for plants. He’s got a chemical agent that can do that."

Fun Fact: Did you know that Marvel has launched a new #1 issue of Captain America six times since November of 2007?
