Are The New Astonishing Captain America Comics Set In The Movie Universe? – Diggle “No” UPDATE

Unveiled at NYCC was next Summer’s new Cap series. From Marvel:

The Astonishing line of titles gets a tad more patriotic next summer when writer Andy Diggle teams with artist Adi Granov for the five-issue limited series Astonishing Captain America, placing the shield-wielding hero of WWII in a brand new war of today.

Judging from the cover of the first issue, we’ll at least start in WWII however:

More specifically, a WWII that shares its look with the upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger movie. Compare to the concept art, costume test footage and on-set snaps that we’ve run before:

Same costume at least.

Let’s go out on a limb. Maybe… maybe Diggle’s story has it’s opening scenes in the timeline of the Cap movie, then plays out it’s main plotline in the period just before the Avengers movie for this “brand new war of today”.

Doesn’t sound impossible and it’s certainly being released at the right time…

UPDATE: But Diggle says no. The appearance of a near-identical costume in both these comics in the film are the result of either a) coincidence b) Adi Granov’s preferences c) an attempt at marketing synergy.
