Disney To Reboot The Rocketeer! [Video]

The first time Disney released The Rocketeer in 1991 it was a flop, but the studio hopes a new and updated version of the jet-packed hero will be a success. Reports are that they will soon be meeting with writers in an effort to reboot the film. The Rocketeer was originally an early eighties comic written as a tribute to the action heros of the thirties. He’s kind of an old-fashioned Iron Man with Captain America’s sensibility. Done right, this could be a great movie.

See the trailer for the original version of the movie after the jump…
