New York, 1940. A new decade on the horizon. Little did the world know then that this decade would shape the course of history in ways never before seen. Though two men who walked those New York streets, a pair of artists and creators, had a strong feeling of what was to come. They were Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, two first generation Jewish-Americans who believed in their country, believed that the atrocities taking place in Europe needed to be answered... and most importantly, they believed in freedom.
And it was an image of freedom that they would create...

From his first appearance in 1941 through the 75 years that would follow, CAPTAIN AMERICA has been one of, if not the most influential comic book characters ever to be created.

He has been the moral compass that has inspired generations to do better and believe in more than themselves. Whether it be leading The Avengers or fighting for his beliefs, even when it meant taking sides against those closest to him during Marvel’s Civil War, “Cap” has been a beacon of light in the Marvel universe.

A full-length documentary that follows the history of Captain America from 1941 to present and explores how "Cap" has been a reflection of the changing times and the world he has existed in throughout the years. Fans will hear from various Marvel luminaries including Stan Lee, Joe Quesada, Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Jeph Loeb, Louis D’Esposito, Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell, as well as family members of Cap’s creators. “Marvel’s Captain America: 75 Heroic Years” will also unveil an exclusive announcement from Marvel comics.
