UPDATE: Rumor: The First Avenger: Captain America's Invaders Revealed?

I have received information from the set of The Captain America movie currently shooting in England. If this is accurate, those hoping to see Namor, Toro, or any of the original team of Invaders from the comics will be very disappointed.

Follow Mark "RorMachine":
By Mark "RorMachine" Cassidy - 9/12/2010
The info comes courtesy of someone claiming to be an extra on set. Although I have been unable to verify if that is accurate, the information does seem like it rings true from what we already know. Anyway, I'll leave this under scoops for now and let you folks debate on it.

The guy tells me that he saw a call sheet for a soon to be shot scene involving Cap and several other uniformed characters. As was reported earlier and is evident on IMDB(still of course no source of confirmation!), the actor J.J. Field is down as playing a character called Falsworth. This is most likely some variation on Montgomery Falsworth, a.k.a. Union Jack who was one of the original members of the team. He says that the mysterious Asian character first reported on Here, is someone called Morita, played by actor Kenneth Choi. There is also Bruno Rici playing a character named Dernier. And it's these men that are referred to in the script as The Invaders.

Of course, this could all be completely inaccurate. Aside from this, the fact that we have heard nothing about any of the other Invaders from the comic being a part of this, I would still have my doubts.

Confirm or debunk below.

Update: Here is a pic of the call sheet. Note the top of the pic which describes Bucky getting trigger happy with some Hydra goons!

let's hope they are presented the right way

Damn no original Invaders....
LEEE777 - 9/11/2010, 5:11 AM
HOLLYWOOD strikes again!!!

(if its true)

If we don't get the ORIGINAL INVADERS, don't bother... GEEZUZ! : P


Whats the point of putting no names in the team,?, best just ignore INVADERS and make the movie more real feel with just CAP and BUCKY!
jjmeylar - 9/11/2010, 6:58 AM
@Lee: Yeah! Because Bucky ((in his dandy red and blues)) is PERFECT for a "real feel". Humor me! :p
DaenerysTargaryen - 9/11/2010, 6:59 AM
doubt its true
LucasMend - 9/11/2010, 7:12 AM
What the [frick]? Let´s hope thats false. I want to see Namor god damn
blah - 9/11/2010, 7:26 AM
i really want marvel to use namor, and then do his solo film, and then the inhumans solo film would be wicked awesome.
marvel72 - 9/11/2010, 7:41 AM
i hope this is bullshit,i'd be happy with namor & the original human torch.

i can't f*cking stand bucky,i hate him as much as i hate robin.

this might be true namor is the first mutant,the title of his comic says that.

& his appeared in the pages of the x-men,i bet ya fox has something to do with this.

not allowing marvel to use their charactors.
psmaniacs - 9/11/2010, 9:10 AM
before you guys freak out you need to check out the names. Morita and dernier are both names of guys in Fury's Howling Commandos
dlineman517 - 9/11/2010, 9:49 AM
I could see this being true, it makes sense they wouldn't include Namor or the Human Torch both characters would overshadow Captain America and non-comic fans watching the movie would be confused by the existence of a second human torch
LEEE777 - 9/11/2010, 10:19 AM
JJMeylar @ I'd be happy if BUCKY wasn't in it lol, but he is. : P

Hopefully BUCKY's a 1 minute cameo or something heh heh!
tazmaniak - 9/11/2010, 10:32 AM
psmaniacs is correct.Jim Morita was a Japanese-American Army Ranger who was a member of the Commandos.Jacques Dernier was a member of the French Resistance who was an ally of the Commandos.
DCMarvelFreshman - 9/11/2010, 10:48 AM
Interesting scoop ROR! Hmm Jim Morita & Jacques Dernier. I wish someone would spot Gabe Jones on set, and whose playing him. I believe this is pretty accurate.

TANKGIRL - 9/11/2010, 11:33 AM
CANT WAIT FOR CAP

THE INVADERS A MUST HOPE WE SEE FOUNDERS MEMBERS

HOPE MARVEL DONT [frick]ED UP LIKE SHE DID WITH THE AVENGERS (THE PYMS CASE)

CHECK OUT MY FANCAST AND LEAVE COMMENTSTARJAMMERS CAST
Curmudgeon - 9/11/2010, 12:02 PM

Thanks for that.

This WOULD fit with the rumors we'd heard earlier about the Invaders and the Howling Commandos being merged for the sake of the film.
blah - 9/11/2010, 12:07 PM
if namor is the first mutant then he is older then the eygptian mutant apocalypse who i thought was the first mutant. anyways i hope to see him in this film or a namor solo, and as i try and push a inhumans solo film.
blah - 9/11/2010, 12:09 PM
if they do not use namor in this then i really want marvel to push for a namor film, and inhumans.
blah - 9/11/2010, 12:09 PM
and they better have the LEADER in the avengers film.
marvel72 - 9/11/2010, 12:25 PM
@ psmaniacs

could you give where you got this info please,because i've been on nick fury wikipedia & marvel.com.

& none of them charactors that you mention are members of the howling commandos.

i'd be happy if you could clear this up for me,please prove me wrong.

I agree, not a big fan of Bucky, but, in my opinion they are going to try and work in the winter soldier story for future cap films so at least in the first film he is going to be a necessary evil. I can live without the Invaders in this movie, it already feels like it is getting a little top heavy in how many characters are being shown. It makes sense that the howling Commandos are in it, but I hope SLJ's screen time is limited,(I can't help but feel this is being used as a platform for a Nick Fury solo movie). This is a Captain America movie, not an Invaders movie, yes they are an important part of Caps rich history, but there is only a limited amount of screen time and I would hate to see Captain Americas character suffer because they were trying to squeeze in to many other characters.

"if namor is the first mutant then he is older then the eygptian mutant apocalypse who i thought was the first mutant. anyways i hope to see him in this film or a namor solo, and as i try and push a inhumans solo film."

Namor is the first mutant, in terms of being the first mutant character created by Marvel.In the comics, he was the first mutant the public was aware of, as Apocalypse, Sinister or any other centuries old mutants were not known to the public.

MARVEL BLOWS!!!
JoshWilding - 9/11/2010, 12:59 PM
Great scoop ROR! :) I'm perfectly fine with Marvel using characters like these instead of Namor and the Human Torch. Would I love to see them on the big screen? Yes. But I think that the focus should remain on Captain America and Bucky so if not including them helps with that then so be it. (a small role for Union Jack would be nice though!)
InTylerWeTrust - 9/11/2010, 1:38 PM
This movie is crowded enough already. I'm fine with not seeing all the original Invaders, Union Jack is enough for me.
JacobMc - 9/11/2010, 1:45 PM
bucky should be a teenager it just doesnt make sense to just have an adult, they should stick to the comic book but... I cant wait to see captain america
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 9/11/2010, 2:12 PM
Thats not cool, that seems like a move Fox Studios would do not Joe Johnston
AlexDeLarge87 - 9/11/2010, 2:54 PM
Tyler@ Agree

The Original Invaders would have been too big and colorful for this film anyway. They would have overshadowed Cap, im sure of it. And i think thats why Joe Johnston and folks are going this road.

Steve Rogers aka Captain America is the main character in this! And they should only focus on his life and his fight against "Rogue" Nazi Super Soldier Red Skull and his army! Im fine with the Howling Commandos cameo, because they are just Commandos, but the original members of the Invaders, are just too big for this!

Give them there own movie! That would be cool! Then Cap can make a little cameo in that one!:)
DDD - 9/11/2010, 3:23 PM
I'd sure like to really know what's going on here!
Johnston said the last half was going to be THE
INVADERS, I wonder who he was talking about or if he
had his wires crossed with THE HOWLING COMMANDOS?

These Hollywood types seem to know very little
about the characters they are making into movies.
Isn't MARVEL there informing them? What the hell is
going on here?

What this insider sounds like he's describing is
THE HOWLING COMMANDOS, TO ME!

They gotta have BUCKY in this, he is an integral part
of the whole history for MARVEL. He eventually
becomes THE WINTER SOLDIER and of course replaces
Steve as CAP for awhile. They must have him even
tho' he IS extremely lame!

All that is needed of THE INVADERS is a bit of a
cameo! Too much and they would definitely overshadow
CAP in his own damm movie!

If they had The Invaders...NAMOR, HUMAN TORCH, UNION
JACK, SPITFIRE & TORO..in the whole 2nd half of the movie
it would just be Wolverine: Snorigins all
over again and MARVEL would be turning into FOX!
OH, HELL! Heaven forbid!!!!!
ScarletSpidey - 9/11/2010, 3:30 PM
Eh. I'm not going to see an Invaders movie, I'm going to go see a Captain America movie. It's a minor change. If I want 100% accuracy...I'll read the comics. I just want to see a good film.
MrAlamoRipper - 9/11/2010, 4:11 PM
Bucky is a big part of the movie.. he is the reason why steve rogers goes AWOL to rescue him
flames809 - 9/11/2010, 4:35 PM
MrAnonymous- what you said i don't get it.

ddd- how will they turn to fox? they don't really have to put the invaders in the the film if they don't want to, and in wolverine origins thats all the screen time the characters needed in the movie for the audience 2 know what kind of team they were, why they were chosen, and what there powers were and what kind of people were them, so the writer for that film did it good to introduce all those characters in one movie. and fox is a company they choose the director they think fits the protect and the writer that also fits it thats what all movie company do so you can't blame marvel,fox,Sony and other studios for bad movies blame the director and writer for the film, open your eyes dude.

scarletspiderman- same here man a good film is all i need and a good trailer
jazzman - 9/11/2010, 4:41 PM
if the Invaders was in this movie it would distract the story about Captain America.

guys if you want to know more info about these characters Jacques Dernier and Jim Morita go to these link below

droopy1317 - 9/11/2010, 5:08 PM
i prefer they leave them out cuz it might turn out like x-men origins:wolverine
jshark - 9/11/2010, 5:12 PM
I still have a lot of doubts with this movie. Sorry Lee but nothing I've seen convinces me this will be good. I still hold my full judgement since there's no trailer yet. Maybe keeping my expectations low will help make it a blockbuster movie for me. So far the first pictures aren't doin it for me though.
dlineman517 - 9/11/2010, 5:15 PM
@ScarletSpidey I couldn't have said it better myself
AngryRob - 9/11/2010, 5:19 PM
the following comment was written while under the influence of alcohol

Ugh, why does everyone like the most horrible parts of comics?! Winter Soldier is a {shoot} character! The original Invaders?! That's {funny} stupid! They would overshadow cap! It's a captain America movie {gosh dangit} The Invaders/Howling commandos are going to be minor parts of the film. Bucky isn't going to be in tights, relax. He'll probably be more like the Ultimates version.
{fun} Winter Soldier
{fun} The human Torch
{fun} Namor
{fun} WWII White Nick Fury
I don't care if it's how it went in the comics, Read the {funny} comics if that's what you want to see! {Jeebus} H Mother {funny} boom boom {Crackers}
flames809 - 9/11/2010, 5:38 PM
angry- no is the black nick fury there using

droopy1317- but the audience of wolverine origins knew who the characters was an there purpose was it was shown in the film so other than it was bad they knew how to introduce the character so the audience can know who they r there power and what they do thats all the audience have to know.
TheActionAce - 9/11/2010, 5:56 PM
what no union jack
Paulley - 9/11/2010, 6:39 PM
Union Jack.. is the only invader they can use (along with Bucky).. the rest have powers which would completely conflict with the representation of Captain America. Lets face facts they are gonna have a troop of soldiers called "invaders" and some may have names that link to the comic invaders that is all.... anything else would be stupid.
tigz13 - 9/11/2010, 6:55 PM
could the asian be private jim morita? who helped out the howling commando at one stage? he was part of a nesei squad so yer... and theres another character in sgt. fury and the howling commandos named jaqcues 'the frenchie" dernier he ws french resistance...its a possibility
