A few weeks ago, it was announced that to celebrate the character’s 75th anniversary this year, Marvel would be unveiling a brand new, 13-ft tall bronze Captain America statue at San Diego Comic-Con this year. The statue would be at different locations throughout the convention as well, before moving to Brooklyn later this Fall. Since today marks the first day in the SDCC week as well, the first official photo of the actual statue itself has finally been revealed.
Check it out in all of its patriotic glory below:
According to Entertainment Weekly, the statue will be placed in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on August 10th and will spend the entirety of that month in the park, before moving to the Barclays Center in September, and Sunset Park in October. In addition to the statue, a SDCC-exclusive Captain America comic will be released also, in which Cap basically fights around his statue, which judging by the cover alone is pretty strange.
Until then though, let’s all just take a moment to bask in the bronze glory of one of comics’ most iconic and beloved superheroes, shall we?
