Captain America – Hey guess what…he’s still not cast

Posted by LiveFor on March 16, 2010

After Hugo Weaving was recently announced to possibly be playing the evil Red Skull in the Captain America film news is out today that Steve Rogers has still not been cast.

Instead yet another name has been added to the list and this name is Ryan Phillippe (Way of the Gun, Franklyn, MacGruber, Breach, Crash).

HitFix have the news that Phillippe has joined the possible Steves including Mike Vogel (Cloverfield, She’s Out of My League), Garret Hedlund (Tron Legacy), Chris Evans (Fantastic Four, The Losers).

I am getting a bit fed up with all the maybes, but I’m taking it as a god good sign that Marvel Studios want to get Cap just right for the film.

Do you think Phillippe would make a good Captain America?

    nope, he’s to young, stop catering to the 14 yearold chicks and give us a MAN! lol. atleast in his late 30s early 40s and looks like it. He needs to be built, not that slender boy look, more like Dolph, Stallone or the Rock, i mean atleast! i know he is puny before the transformation but they don’t need to find a guy that looks puny all the time πŸ˜›

    yea so by the time the avenger movie comes along hes 50? ofc too young doesnt work but too old neither.

    the whole casting theatre is killing the movie already. mark my effin words.

    i wonder if disney’s influence have something to do with the long casting process??

      Well Phillippe is about 35 which is slightly older than they were originally going for.

      Also Cap isn’t really the whole Stallone build more a top athlete kind of look.
