Marvel has found the scientist that created Captain America!

Stanley Tucci ("Julie & Julia," "The Lovely Bones") has joined Marvel's new feature "Captain America: The First Avenger," starring as Dr. Abraham Erskine, and co-starring alongside Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Hugo Weaving and Hayley Atwell.

Dr. Abraham Erskine's first appearance was in issue #1 of Captain America, published in 1941, as the German scientist who first developed the Super-Soldier Serum that transformed Steve Rogers into Captain America.

Movie will center on Steve Rogers, a sickly young man who was enhanced to a perfect human weapon after being injected with an experimental serum, to aid the United States war effort against the Nazis.

Evans stars as Steve Rogers aka Captain America, Stan plays the captain's sidekick, Bucky Barnes, Weaving will star as Johann Schmidt, a.k.a. the Red Skull, Atwell plays Captain America's love interest, Peggy Carter - who happens to be an American spy.

Joe Johnston "The Wolfman" will direct from the script written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Kevin Feige and Stephen Broussard will co-produce the feature. David Maisel, Stratton Leopold, Louis D'Esposito and Stan Lee executive produce.

Shooting is scheduled to begin this summer in England, and will be released by Paramount in the United States on July 22, 2011.
