Disney might be preparing a remake of The Rocketeer
Perhaps riding on the wings of the WWII-era Captain America: The First Avenger
, and all the success that came after it, Disney is apparently talking to screenwriters about rebooting its 1991 cult classic, The Rocketeer
, which was (probably not coincidentally directed by Captain America'
s Joe Johnston). Its life began in the early 1980s as a comic book by the late Dave Stevens, which was recently revived when it was picked up by IDW last year. The Rocketeer
is having a moment, everyone. Strap on your rocket packs and get ready! (Ed. note: Just realized that if you have a rocket pack, you don't actually need to ride on the wings of anything. Apologies for the technical error.) (via Spinoff Online
