"Canada is pretty much just the United States, but with prettier money, cleaner air and better healthcare, right?"

 

Ummm, you DO know that the Healthcare system in Canada sucks, right?

And where's John Barrowman? He's by far the most popular rumored actor for Cap, and he isn't even on the list!

Now, i don't have a problem with it, but I can Guaran DAMN tee that fan boys and others would be up in arms if John Barrowman was cast as Captain America.  An openly gay actor playing the The Star Spangled Avenger would not go over well.

I actualy like the villain list better too. I just don't see anyone on there as a potential Captain America. Some have the acting skills but not the right look or size. Those that have the right size and look, don't have the  acting chops. John Cena looks the part but I wouldn't put him up there in an Avengers movie with the likes of RDJ, Norton and Sam Jackson.

How about Alexander Skarsgard? He might be too tall and probably have to gain like 20lbs of muscle but I could see him as Cap. He can act too.

Ok in order

1. I can see it

2. He is Duke, didn't really blow us away with that one did he!?!

3. That is a joke right, yes he has the look, but he sucks as a wrestler, worse as an actor, so pass!!!

4. Maybe, this would be pay back for being passed over as the Green Latern

5. Capt Kirk, naw

6. Two Face, naw

7. Maybe

8 HELL NO!!!!  Really, I mean really.  Ok yes Sam Jackson pulled it off, but it was because in the comic they used his likeness, so it was a good fit, but Will FREAKIN Hancock Smith.  NO!!!  If they do that, I will not be seeing this movie

Barrowman? A foreigner and a gay one on top to play an American icon? I can see the protests already. Hell no.

Priority #1 thru #10 , he must be American, #11 has to look the part and #12 has to be a capable actor

I'm still rooting for Jensen Ackles in this one.  With a good director guiding him, he'd be good as Cap.

I think DaFoe would make an excellent Skull, but do you think they would shy away from that, or that HE would shy away from that, because of his casting as the Goblin? Be seen as too much of a "retread"?

Apart from that, I think the Skull is a bit of a cypher. He has been portrayed many many different ways over the years. Do you go for cool intellect (the Hannibal Lecter route?) or hair-trigger raging crazy (Hitler in Basterds) , or...? ....  He has been a bit of both at various times over the years.

His age, relative to Cap, has always been a bit shakey (do you see them as being contemporaries, etc)... and if you assume he is going to be in full "red skull head" mode, not sure the age of the actor playing him is really that big a deal.  Gives you much more latitude.

Well, I don't think he has to be American, but he has to at least look like the Steve Rogers from the comic. Blonde, blue eyes, athletic, sort of square jawed. Aren't really that many American actors that look like that. They'll have to look in other places. Maybe they should cast an uknown.

If Brad Pitt was younger I think he'd make a pretty good Cap. Like take how he looked in Troy, cut his hair, give him the red white and blue uniform and shield and he is a dead wringer for Rogers.

I thought we'd already decided on Mark Valley for Cap?

I like Nathan Fillion but he's not Cap. The only reason he shows up on every list now is that Bruce Campbell is getting up there in age.

From what i understand Cena is a still a "bad guy" in the WWE, the Rock's movie career didn't take off until he became a good wrestler. They need to do the same for Cena, give him some more action movies and maybe in a few years he would be ready and more of a box office name, but we are talking way past 2011, so we can count him out for sure. i dont think the unknown actor is the way to go here,  no it wasnt brandon routh's fault for superman returns, ahem- singerfault, you need someone who can contribute to the part and be able to pull some weight because of who he is, look at norton and the hulk (comparing "incred hulk" to "hulk" i mean). you need a ed norton actor to get an ed norton movie.
