captain americaThe much-anticipated Captain America: The First Avenger hits screens this July after years in development. If the trailers are any indication, it’s bound to be a thrilling comic book adventure that will be able to stand head and shoulders with the finest superhero flicks ever made, but it wouldn’t be the first time the Star-Spangled Avenger has been in front of a movie camera.

According to io9, the infamous 1990 Captain America movie — produced by former Cannon Pictures co-head Menahem Golan and directed by Albert Pyun, the man responsible for such sterling works of B-cinema as The Sword and the Sorcerer and Cyborg with a young Jean-Claude Van Damme — is coming to Blu-Ray this May, two months ahead of Marvel Studios’ blockbuster-in-the-making and will be something new entirely. According to director Pyun, this new release of his Captain America will be a newly-created director’s cut with 27 minutes of never-before-seen footage added back in, bringing the movie’s running time up to 124 minutes. Pyun also says that the director’s cut will be created from “my own 35 mm CA work picture and temp mix [that] I did before I left [the] picture” and the new footage will include “a few added scenes, and is more character-oriented and less ‘super hero action.'” The new cut will also feature a new soundtrack and will be in 5.1 stereo.

Don’t remember this movie? There’s a good reason for that.

Originally scheduled for theatrical release in the United States in 1990, the film was shelved, later to resurface in 1992 in the direct-to-video market. And if anyone remembers what it meant to go direct-to-video in the 90s, you’ll know that it was the ultimate sign of “no confidence” from a movie studio.

Me personally, I don’t think Captain America was all that bad; actually, I found it quite enjoyable, despite the changes made to the story from the Marvel comic books. The movie begins in Italy during World War II and the first six or so minutes of the movie are entirely in Italian, but for some reason the Hulu version does not have subtitles. But I found the story simple enough to follow. Basically, keep in mind: Nazis bad; America good.
