Captain America – Will one of these wield the shield?
Posted by LiveFor on February 24, 2010
There is still no official word on who will play Captain America in Joe Johnston’s Marvel movie, but Deadline are saying that these are the people on Marvel’s wish list for the role:
Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl)
John Krasinski (The Office)
Scott Porter (Friday Night Light)
Mike Vogel (Cloverfield)
Michael Cassidy (Privileged)
Patrick Flueger (Brothers, The 4400)
Garrett Hedlund (Tron Legacy)
There’s a salary scale, but if you’re not a known quantity like Crawford or Krasinski, the offer is around $300,000 for the first film – not much for a big film such as this but whoever gets the role will have to sign for another nine options for future films that include sequels, The Avengers and other Marvel films. Deadline also mention that director Johnston recently reached an impasse with Marvel and briefly walked off the film when Marvel informed him the budget was too high and he’d have to take a pay cut. That dispute was sorted out.
Of course it doesn’t mean that any of these will get the part.
However, Comic Book Movie are saying they have a source saying Krasinski has the role. Not sure how reliant that source is though.
Which of them should be Captain America?
