With "Captain America: Civil War" on the horizon, ABC is celebrating 75 years of Captain America in a new primetime special. An exclusive Marvel comics announcement will also be made, and the special will lead right into the two-hour season premiere of "Marvel's Agent Carter". Captain America has served as the moral compass for the Marvel universe for over 75 years, and this year he is being celebrated in a big way. The admirable Captain Rogers is not only seeing the release of his third standalone film, "Captain America: Civil War", but with three versions of the Captain being represented on comic stands right now ("Captain America White", "Sam Wilson Captain America", "Spider-Gwen") he is definitely the superhero on everyone's minds.
2014 marks Marvel’s 75th anniversary, and as part of the celebrations fans can catch an original, hour-long primetime special of our full history from 1939 to present, plus an extraordinary peek into Marvel's future! “Marvel 75 Years: From Pulp to Pop!” will take fans new and old alike through the decades with the people who lived them in exclusive interviews, hosted by Emily VanCamp, star of ABC’s “Revenge” and Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
Marvel celebrates the history of Captain America, both in the comics and on TV and film, and examines the character as a reflection of American culture throughout the years.
