Comical Con

He's "not a flag-waver." He just happens to wear a costume that looks exactly like an American flag. But, I repeat, he's "not a flag-waver." Well, the shield he waves does evoke an American flag. But he's "not a flag-waver." And yes, he calls himself "Captain AMERICA." But he's not...oh, never mind!

COMIC-CON 2010: 'Captain America' director has different spin on hero: 'He's not a flag-waver'

The director of "Captain America: The First Avenger," the 2011 summer blockbuster that will coincide with the character's 70th anniversary, says the screen version of the hero will be true to his roots -- up to a certain point.

"We're sort of putting a slightly different spin on Steve Rogers," said Joe Johnston, whose past directing credits include "Jurassic Park III" and "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids." He's a guy that wants to serve his country, but he's not a flag-waver. We're reinterpreting, sort of, what the comic book version of Steve Rogers was."
