For Captain America's 75th Anniversary, Marvel is unveiling a 13-foot-tall bronze statue at this month's San Diego Comic-Con.

The Captain America statue will then be on display at Brooklyn’s Prospect Park for a dedication ceremony on Aug. 10th.

The Captain America statue has yet to be revealed, but USA Today showed off the following concept art.

“For the past 75 years, Captain America has inspired generations of fans serving as the ultimate global icon for freedom, strength and doing the right thing,” Paul Gitter, senior vice president of licensing for Marvel at Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media, said.

It's noted the statue weights a ton and also features a line from the Captain America: The First Avenger movie: "I'm just a kid from Brooklyn."

Captain America was created back in 1941 by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon.

 “We hope that when fans see the statue, they will think back to a favorite comic book, treasured action figure or even be transported back to a special time and place in their lives where Captain America’s values played influence," Gitter said.

Comic-Con runs July 20-24.
