    God, i hope they don't go for it. I like Chris Evans as an actor but he is NOT Captain America. I'm just hoping they'll give it to some unknown/moderately known actor that's actually blonde, blue eyed and can carry a team with Gods, monsters and some of the smartest men in the world.

    After all, one of my all time favourite scenes is the Frank Miller's Daredevil where the Avengers show up and Daredevil commenst on Cap saying "A voice that can command a God. And does".

    Chris Evans for that? Yeah, no.

    Fantastic Four = Fox
    Captain America = Marvel Studios

    I don't take anything seriously that wasn't done my MS.

    Also...
    If you want to bark up that tree...

    Ryan Reynolds played Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity and plays Wade Wilson in both X-Men Origins: Wolverine and the upcoming Deadpool film while, at the same time, playing Hal Jordan in the DC Green Lantern flick.

    I'm not complaining but I figured you'd want something else to roll your eyes at.

    edit: And this will be Chris Evans 3rd Comic Role. He's in The Losers too.

    Wont happen. Fox is digging their claws into the FF franchise. That's why they filmed that hideous FF movie back in 1994. They did it simply to hold onto the rights for the movie.

    Unless marvel buys back FF, Daredevil, X-Men, Blade and Spider-Man...
    We wont be seeing any crossover films anytime soon.

    Which crushes my hopes for a Secret Wars movie. :wtc:

    edit: I also called the Chris Evans thing. I'm pretty okay with it too. Just because he portrayed Johnny Storm a certain way, doesn't mean he'll be a bad Cap. In fact, because he nailed the role so well, I'm pretty sure he'll do good as Cap as well.

    Chris Evans Confirmed for Captain America
    Source: Heat Vision, Variety
    March 22, 2010


    [​IMG]Chris Evans ("Fantastic Four" films) has accepted Marvel Studios' offer for him to play Steve Rogers/Captain America in the Joe Johnston-directed The First Avenger: Captain America. Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely wrote the script.

    Marvel would not comment on the development, but we expect the official announcement will be made soon.

    The deal calls for Evans to star in at least three "Captain America" movies, with the first hitting theaters on July 22, 2011.

    He would reprise the role in The Avengers, which will united Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and the Incredible Hulk (Edward Norton) in one film. That film is scheduled for May 4, 2012. The character also will likely make cameo appearances in Marvel's other films.

    Hugo Weaving will play the villain Red Skull in The First Avenger: Captain America.

    Am I the only one that doesn't see this as a bad casting? Out of all the young Hollywood semi-action stars around right now, Chris Evans at least has the acting chops to pull it off. With the right script and solid directing, this could actually turn out to be great.

    :dunno: He has the build. All he has to do is put on the muscle. And I'm sure he will.

    :mad:

    Perhaps it's just the fanboy in me wanting to rage, but i really just don't see this going down very well. Chris Evans is not the kind of guy that can outshine and LEAD a team full of larger than life guys like Thor and Iron Man.

    He can put on the muscle, if he wants, my issue is what someone else brought up that Cap has to be a leader who can command the avengers and of course go toe to toe with iron man and Evans doesn't have a chance in hell of going up against RDJ.
