While Marvel had looked to David Self to write First Avenger: Captain America back in 2006, things obviously change in time. Taking the project more seriously, Marvel Studios is hoping to pick up not one but two scribes to handle the script.

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely to Write First Avenger: Captain America

Marvel Studios is in final negotiations with scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely to write First Avenger: Captain America. If you've been following updates on the production then you already know that the studio recently picked up Joe Johnston to direct.

Created in 1941 by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon for Timely Comics, Captain America is the heroic alter ego of Steve Rogers, who is rejected by the Army for being too sickly and undergoes an experiment that takes him to the pinnacle of human form. Paired with an indestructible shield, he becomes a symbol of the war effort, fighting Nazis and villainous scientists like the Red Skull.

Later on Captain America became a charter member of Marvel's the Avengers. As it turns out, Marvel Studios has an Avengers flick in the works too.

With the help of Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, Marvel Studios has been building towards an Avengers movie ever since launching their own studio. The final product will be released only a few months after Captain America's scheduled release for May 6, 2011.

While Captain America will take place in World War II, Avengers will bring the character up to modern times.
