[QUOTE]The Rocketeer is a fictional character, a superhero created by writer-illustrator Dave Stevens. The character first appeared in 1982 and is a homage to the Saturday matinee serial heroes of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s.
Let's check this video :
The Rocketeer is Cliff Secord, a stunt pilot who discovers a mysterious jetpack that allows him to fly. His adventures are set in 1938 Los Angeles and New York, and Stevens gives them a retro, nostalgic feel influenced by the King of the Rocket Men movie serial, the syndicated Commando Cody TV series (both from Republic Pictures), and pinup diva Bettie Page.
- B-17 √
- real human with a rocket pack √
We also had the jet belt in Los Angeles olympics :
This swiss guy in the first video, Yves "jetman" Rossi, could be a perfect stuntman for this new movie. The first jetpack would be bigger at the beginning and gets smaller at the ending of the movie (or in the sequel ...)
I think we have everything needed to create a realistic and successfull Rockeeter movie. Captain America and Marvel Studios leads the path for comics movies and Rockeeter was one great movie. If you wish to watch the old movie, I found it complete on youtube in eleven parts.
Walt Disney owns both his rights and Marvel Studios, can you imagine one Captain America-Rockeeter movie ?
