I take back my first comment.  I finally saw the Tron trailer (can't access it from work) and I have to say, I could see that Garrett Hedlund as Cap.   Though Dark Horizons says its a 9 picture contract and only 300,000 per film...which would be great bank for me but if this makes him a household name then I can see him wanting more for sequels.  I think a 9 pic deal is a bit much to ask from any actor.  Marvel seems like they try to cheap end the costs where they can.  I know that's smart business but they can alienate good talent that way as well.

They need an unknown for Cap.  We need fresh faces for this.  We can't just rehash the same people over and over and over again.

No on Krasinski.  No on Evans.  Vote YES on Josh Holloway.  Or some no-name new guy!!

Good call on the multiple roles, gauley. I didn't realize there were so many of them.  Though, as you point out, most of them are minor, supporting roles.  Evans as Torch/Cap would be two major starring roles.  Guess I wouldn't dismiss it out of hand, given your point. I still think it's unlikely, though.

As for Michael C. Hall or Matt Damon... Again, they are both 39. Matthew Fox is 43.  Josh Holloway is 40.  *sigh*

First of all Wiseguy you said that you don't think that Marvel would cast the same actor that was in another Marvel movie not with the company, however it's been done already. I know it wasn't anything under the new Marvel film umbrella but still Ryan Reynolds has played both Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity and Wade Wilson in Wolverine (yes I know we as fans barely count Deadpool in that movie but still)  and will go on to play Deadpool in his own movie.

As far as Chris Evans goes I could see him as Cap.

I read parts of that interview with Nolan and he said that this coming Batman film will be the last one. I hope not I love them and would love to see more.

Spiderman is being rebooted because it was infected with mediocrity by the third film.  Marvel is being more careful about how they approach things now, and rebooting Spidey to fit in with the other franchises is the right thing to do.  Reboots are only necessary if the franchise starts to suck.  Spiderman and X Men started out strong and got progressively further away from the comics with each sequel, Fantastic 4 and it's sequel were just bad, Daredevil was bad, Elektra was bad, both attempts at the Punisher were bad, Ghost Rider was bad, and the first Incredible Hulk movie was bad.  They've got two solid films under their belt as Marvel Studios with Iron Man 2 on the way, and if they can continue to build these franchises into a cohesive cinematic Marvel Universe, then the need for reboots will be nonexistent.
