Evans would make a pretty decent Cap....the article is right-his role in Sunshine was as non Chris Evans as I can think.....

 

Kudos to Stephen Lang. Ike Clanton has been working hard for years and it's awesome to see he's back in the spotlight.

The fact that Chris Evans played the Torch won't stop anyone from hiring him for Cap, but it should.  The fact that the Marvel films have been all over the place in terms of quality and tone is part of the reason that this new Favareau approach is gaining so much traction.  Going back to throwing actors into multiple movies as different characters just undermines everything they're trying to do.  Evans was a great Torch in the Fantastic 4 films, one bright spot in a towering pile of mediocrity.  It wasn't his fault those movies sucked, but until they reboot FF with a better direction and a new cast, he's the silver screen's Human Torch, and you don't get to be Captain America if you're the Human Torch already.  Go with Krazinski or Michael C. Hall.

Nolan's Stewardship of the Superman franchise is good news, but I reject the notion that his Batman's world wouldn't be compatible with Superman.  Gotham and Metropolis are entirely different cities.  Gotham is supposed to be dark and gritty, just like Batman is.  Nolan didn't invent the notion of Batman being gritty.  Alan Moore, Frank Miller, Jeff Loeb, etc.  all have Batman stories under their belts that were far darker than the Dark Knight's plotline and Superman exists in the universe presented in those stories with no problem at all.  Batman being dark and gritty has no impact on Superman whatsoever.  They're two very different people from two very different cities and there's no reason that either franchise should have to steer one way or the other in order to get us to an eventual Justice League film.  As long as each film stands on it's own as a faithful take on the characters and the canon, then worrying about grit and tone will be a secondary issue when the JLA finally hits the silver screen.  It is because Batman and Superman differ so much in their motives and methods that the tension between them and the grudging friendship that exists between them is so compelling.  There's no reason that both franchises can't be compatible if handled with an emphasis on respecting the history of the characters.

I hope the Metropolis in Nolans Superman is more modern not like  Singers

Nolan and Superman worries me to no end. But Singer on Superman I had no problem with, and look what we got there. I will wait for a trailer b4 condeming/praising the movie at all, but I remain skeptical at this point. He has to approach it differently from Batman or it won't work, I don't want a Superman grounded in reality that would be terrible. Nolan's Batman was great, Burton's was better IMO and I was much more excited when I heard way back in the day that Burton would be helming Superman, well until he cast Nick Cage as Sups that is.

 Chris Nolan is not going to direct, the article says he'll be like Peter Jackson on District 9.  Nolan will help move things along and help put some thought into the story so it won't be the mindless bullsh.it that passes as a summer blockbuster film.  That's a good thing in my book.

Nolan also attracts top notch talent to his films, so hopefully even though he won't direct he can get some great actors to join the Superman film.

After seeing that Tron Trailer, I am more inmpressed with Garret Hedlund, and if young is the way they want to go with Cap than I am fine with him!

Holy crap!  $300k for 9 movies?  NINE movies?  That can't be right, can it?  I knew Marvel was penny pinching, but wow.  Though having said that, I'll do them for 1/3rd of the price! (That is, however until the first movie comes out and then all of you Maniacs come hunt me down and kill me due to the horrible acting job, but oh well.)

Hanso said what I was thinking.  It's not like Nolan is actually going to direct.  He'll have an influence, obviously, but I think it's a little too early to get all worked up on Nolan on Superman (good or bad).

I've said it before and I'll say it again. MATT DAMON should be Cap!

monelonmonday 3/10/2010 2:27:33 PM

just a thought on cap ,how bout matthew fox,far fetched i know but i was watching lost today &he's got the face & build   hairs off i know but so is krasninski's,in a perfect world it would be valley 

dracor00 3/10/2010 2:44:47 PM

millean thats 300k for signing for the first movie.  so that payment should be for the first movie. the others will depend on lots of things. for example the cameo crossovers will pay significantly less. and most likely an avengers movie will not pay as much as a straight cap sequel
