Joss Whedon, director of The Avengers and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is set to write a 75th-anniversary Captain America story for Marvel. Captain America first appeared in 1941, with the mission of fighting the Nazis, as the alter ego of Steve Rogers. In 2014, Sam Wilson took the mantle as the nation’s leading freedom fighter, and Whedon’s story—which comes out in the March 30 issue—will focus on Wilson.

Whedon will work with John Cassady, the illustrator behind The Astonishing X-Men. The issue will also feature one last appearance by Steve Rogers, the original Captain America, so at least for this issue there will technically be two Captain Americas at once.
