Cap: Evans is great! He would be perfect in my book. Not too many people read my book though.  Who is Micheal Flemming? Can't find a pic for him. Is this spelled right?

Nolan: I'm alittle worried about him and Supes. His style is the "real & gritty" which is not Superman at all (or it shouldn't be). He and his ideals should be Bigger Than Life. Also his keeping each superhero movie to its own internal logic kind of cramps the possible Justice League movie idea. Wait and see.

All these casting rumors for Cap are starting to bum me out. Come on you ass clowns don't blow this...

I'm right there with you, monkeyfoot. Although, I liked what Nolan had to say about the franchise in general, it does not bode well for future merging of franchises and/or a JL movie.

I could see Evans as Cap, but I doubt he'd do it after having been Johnny Storm already. Several differences between his situation and Stevenson's.  a) No one saw Punisher; b) Stevenson is basically unknown to mainstream American audiences; c) Evans played the Torch in 2 FF movies which, combined, made close to $300M domestic; d) Volstagg will probably be in much heavier makeup and costuming, creating a much different appearance from the Punisher.

I always had thought McConaughey might have been good, if he could shed the southern accent.  But I've never seen him do that.  Also, he's too old.  If they were willing to expand the age range a few years, I'd go with Capt. Awesome.  If they expanded 10 years, I'd go with Valley. As it is, I still say Jared Padalecki is my top choice.  Ben Foster is too short (5'9").  I'm less worried about the movie getting delayed due to casting than I am that they'll rush to pick the wrong guy for fear of a delay.  I'd rather see them delay filming 3-6 months and get the right guy than rush into filming with Zac Efron playing Cap.  Oh, shit. I shouldn't have said that.  Now some Hollywood douche is going to see that and go after him....

Nolan is going to ...

OWN Superman SON!!! Trust in Nolan... Unless you don't like how he "gets" characters and brings them to life while keeping their character true.. I think Nolan will make an AWESOME Braniac/Lex teamup...And lets not forget comic geeks, A hero is only as good as their villains are bad-a$$ed.

I can easily see Krasinski as Cap. He's got that all american look that sells it for me.

Chris Evans IS awesome. I liked the FF movies, and he was awesome in them as THT.

Sunshined was a supersweet flick, and Evans did an amazing job in that role.

Wiseguy "but would Marvel cast the same actor for another of their characters even if it was with another studio, IMO, nope." -besides the Stevenson casting they have also had Sam Elliot play two Marvel characters (Gen. Thunderbolt Ross/The original Ghost Rider)... and Donal Logue played "Mack" in GR, as well as Quinn from Blade... Jon Favreau played Happy Dugan, and Foggy Nelson...

 

There may be more examples but these are just off the top of my head.

Oh Yeah! AND Ryan Reynolds was Hannibal King, and Deadpool... And GL, different comic punlisher, but you get the point. If they are willing to cast a DC comics lead, as a Marvel Comics lead, I HIGHLY doubt they will not cast Evans just because he played the HT...

Cap - Chris Evans needs to sit back and let someone else play the superhero in this one, he is ok but i woud rather see someone new get the spotlight, I think Dane Cook read just to get his name in the papers, there was no way he thought he would get to carry the shield. i think they should cast John K. give him a crew cut and get it on with it,

cromulentcat 3/10/2010 10:47:22 AM

I dnt like any of these guys being mentioned for Cap. I hope we get a complete unknown and not one of these lame actors!( Im talking Chris Evans!)

scytheofluna 3/10/2010 10:49:01 AM

Krasinski as Cap?  First I've heard about it and it's not a bad idea so it would be a shame if they went with someone else.  I still think Michael C. Hall should be on that list somewhere.  He's got the face, and he's good with dual identities.

If these are the only people up for Captin America then I'll pass.
