NY Comic Con/MTV, Captain America Director Named

-If you are planning on attending February’s NY Comic Con like Ben and myself, you know how much fun it can be. If you’re between 16-28 and a hardcore fanboy/girl, you can apply at the Con’s official site to be part of the MTV True Life documentary series. The person they choose will be their guest and followed around by the MTV True Life production crew all weekend. Don’t forget the NYCC takes places from February 6-8th, 2009, at the Javits Center in NYC.

Also, Geoff Johns, Jim Lee and George Perez were recently added to the roster of celebs appearing at the event.

-Marvel announced that Joe Johnston has been signed on to direct the Captain America movie, slated for release in May 2011. Johnston is used to bigger-budget action movies including ‘Jumanji’, ‘The Rocketeer’, ‘Jurassic Park III’ and the legendary ‘Honey, I Shrunk The Kids.’ He’s a former Academy Award winner, taking home a 1982 Oscar for the visual effects in ‘Raiders Of The Lost Ark.’ You’ve heard of that, right?
