The "Soldier" teaser last week is revealed to be Rick Remender and John Romita, Jr on Captain America.

Though he sort of spilled the beans earlier in the week, Rick Remender confirms that he and artist John Romita Jr. will be working on the Marvel NOW! relaunch of Captain America.
Remender says that he doesn't want to tell the same stories as Brubaker and will stay away from telling tales of World War II for now. His first arc, comprised of two stories is planned to run for the first ten issues and is called "Dimension Z". Part of this arc will be a look at Steve Rogers' youth and what shaped him growing up. The other part will be featuring Arnim Zola, and do with him something similar to what he did with Apocalypse in Uncanny X-Force. Another character we'll see is a new one named The Green Skull. The Green Skull believes that humanity is the cause for all the problems on the planet and wants to turn the human race into soil for plants.
Captain America #1 will be available in November.
The solicitation follows:
