In honor of the Star Spangled Avenger's 75th Anniversary as well as the timely birthday celebration of Steve Rogers this Fourth of July, Marvel is going to unveil a 13 Foot Bronze Statue of Captain America at this year's San Diego Comic Con - which happens in just a few weeks time! The news broke via USA Today - paired along with an image of a sketch of the upcoming statue that has the inscription "I'm just a kid from Brooklyn". That line of course comes from 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, where a defiant Steve Rogers tells the Red Skull that he's just an ordinary guy who was chosen by Dr. Erskine because that's what he is in addition to being a good man. Replicas of the statue will also be sold during SDCC, so be sure to visit USA Today and Comic Book.com for more info on the story.
Happy 75 Years, Captain America! THUMBS UP SOLDIER!
