Disney Reportedly Planning To Remake The Rocketeer

20 years before he directed Captain America: The First Avenger, Joe Johnston helmed another superhero movie. The Rocketeer was a throwback to adventure serials of the 1930s/40s starring Billy Campbell as Cliff Secord, a stunt pilot with a jetpack who battled Nazis in old-time Hollywood. Though it was a financial disappointment for Disney in 1991, it’s developed a cult following over the years.

Given that and the widespread popularity of superhero cinema nowadays, it’s no surprise that the studio is apparently working on remaking it. We Got This Covered has been informed by our source – the same one who revealed that an Aladdin sequel was in the works last month, before it got confirmed this week – that Disney is looking to reboot the property. It seems the project is in its earliest stages though, as we’ve heard that it could either develop into a movie or a TV show set for Disney Plus.
