Captain America has already celebrated his 75th anniversary with the biggest movie of 2016, but he's not done with the festivities just yet.
Marvel is set to unveil a 13-foot tall bronze statue of The First Avenger in a few short weeks at San Diego Comic Con before it lands in Brooklyn's Prospect Park for a dedication ceremony on August 10th.
Paul Gitter, senior vice president of licensing at Marvel for Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media, said the following in a statement to USA Today about the celebration: “For the past 75 years, Captain America has inspired generations of fans serving as the ultimate global icon for freedom, strength and doing the right thing.”
So what better way to celebrate seven-and-a-half decades of the iconic do-gooder then with his very own statue erected in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York?
The statue will feature the quote: "I am just a kid from Brooklyn" and will feature a pose symbolically chosen to showcase the impressive strength of Captain America and his stoic form. The character will be holding his shield aloft, paying homage to his heroism, indestructible power and determination.
Marvel's social media outlets will keep fans updated as to the statues whereabouts during his trip from San Diego to Brooklyn. Additionally, Comicave Studios, who designed the statue with Marvel, will be selling 750 limited 12" bronze replica statues and 100 limited 35" pewter ones for fas to display at home.
