Captain America Tribute Statue Unveiled at Comic-Con

Marvel is using San Diego Comic-Con to kick off a year-long celebration of 75 years of Captain America. With the help of Comicave Studios, a 13-foot bronze statue of the First Avenger will be displayed at the Marvel booth starting today. The Captain America tribute statue will be available for photo ops all week and then be moved to Brooklyn, New York, where it will have a two-week limited stay at Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. While at the Marvel booth, fans can also purchase a 1/12-scale bronze replica of the statue and a limited edition custom comic book made exclusively for SDCC.

New Yorkers can visit the statue in Brooklyn starting on August 10. During the dedication ceremony, a special screening of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War will take place as part of Brooklyn Borough’s “A Summer Movie Under the Stars” program. “To the rest of America and the world, he’s Captain America; to us, he’ll always be Steve Rogers, ‘just a kid from Brooklyn,’” said Borough President Eric Adams, who is proud to have Brooklyn as “the base of celebrations for Cap’s 75th anniversary.”

After Prospect Park, the statue will move to the Barclays Center plaza for the month of September and will then spend the remainder of the year at the new Bed Bath & Beyond in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Also, be on the lookout for new Captain America merchandise this fall from major retailers such as Her Universe, Café Press, Mighty Fine and more.
