[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.
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.
Let's check this video :
- 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 ?
