More details about Marvel's 75th anniversary Captain America statue have been released - including a tie-in comic book, and a unique itinerary where it'll end up in a Brooklyn Bed, Bath & Beyond.
Created as a joint venture with Comicave Studios, Marvel's Captain America statue will debut at the Marvel booth in this year's Comic-Con International: San Diego. Standing 13 feet tall and weighing approximately one ton according to Marvel, the statue will act as a photo op for fans - with a 1/12-scale bronze replica and a standalone comic book also being sold on site.
The one-shot Captain America tie-in book is by Marc Sumerak, Mark Laming, Wayne Faucher, and Chris Sotomayor.
After SDCC, Marvel will transport the statue cross-country via truck to Brooklyn - the hometown of the first Captain America, Steve Rogers. The statue will be on display at Brooklyn's Prospect Park for two weeks in August. In September, the statue will reside in the plaza outside Barclays Center. After that, it is scheduled to take up a unique position - a soon-to-be-opened Bed Bath & Beyond in the Sunset Park area of Brooklyn.
Marvel is planning several "fan activiation" events at the statue's various installations, with details to be announced.
