In addition to the elongated title, the film is also set to include at least some form of The Invaders
in a prominent role (according to the director). It is generally assumed that they will drop Namor and the original (non-Johnny Storm) Human Torch from the lineup and focus more heavily on the team's international members...particularly Union Jack and Spitfire, who will probably be played by people that are more famous than Chris Evans and/or are popular overseas (like the aforementioned Ms. Knightley, who probably wouldn't be a bad Spitfire at all).
So that's pretty much where it stands in terms of trying to attract an International audience. I wouldn't even be surprised if the overseas posters focus more on the "team" aspect and possibly even include a title change to "Captain America and the Invaders" or something of the sort.
But no, the director has said the guy is still going to be running around dressed up like the American Flag.
And I applaud whoever suggested Michael Fassbender as Union Jack.
