Video Interview: Joe Johnston - Director of Marvel's 'Captain America'

July 21, 2011

Joe Johnston & Chris Evans - Captain America

He's brought us everything from Honey I Shrunk the Kids to The Rocketeer to Jumanji to October Sky and Jurassic Park III, but his latest movie is a Marvel Studios production and one of their best yet. I'm talking about Captain America: The First Avenger and its director, Joe Johnston, who I had the honor of interviewing in-person on-camera last week after seeing the movie (and I totally loved it). I could've spent an hour chatting with Joe, but only got 16 minutes with him and packed in as many good questions as was possible. He's a great guy and I think very responsible for Captain America being such an awesome movie.

Watch our video interview with Joe Johnston, director of Captain America: The First Avenger:

As always with my Flip cam video interviews, I prefer to leave most of the footage unedited, as it gives a full impression of what it's like to meet and interview the person. This full interview with Joe Johnston is a follow-up to my interview with Captain America: The First Avenger screenwriters Chris Markus and Steve McFeely (watch that one here) just yesterday, as I had so much to talk with these guys about. The story, the characters, the action, the villain (Red Skull!), the casting (Chris Evans is perfect, so is Hugo Weaving) is just perfect with this movie, it's such a blast and I'm so glad I had the chance to talk with Joe about it. I hope you enjoyed this second video interview for Captain America, which hits theaters everywhere July 22nd!

dude...spoilers throughout. I mean nothing plot driven but there are some in there for sure.

Really, are you sure? What exactly? Can you email me what you're referring to? Sometimes some of the stuff he mentions may not really be a spoiler once you see the movie, but I may have missed something (as I'm at Comic-Con) so please let me know. I always try to stay spoiler free in every interview, so I'm sorry of anything was ruined, but I truly thought this one was fine.

Wow. Fantastic interview. Thankyou for letting it run unedited. Learned so much and makes me respect the vision that much more hearing about influences and the approach. I think you said it was your favourite Marvel movie. Wow. Can't wait to see it! Thanks!
