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.)
