Captain America is going to be played by….

Posted by LiveFor on March 19, 2010

Hold up. Not so fast there pilgrim. Nothing is totally official, but here is what I know.

According to IESB, the role of Steve Rogers is down to there – Channing Tatum (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra), Chris Evans (Fantastic Four, The Losers), and a sneaky entry by Sebastian Stan (Gossip Girl). However, Tatum could be down for another G.I. Joe, Stan is not American (he’s Romanian and apparantly they don’t want a non-American in the part, that’s why Sam Worthington ruled himself out) and Evans could be tied to another FF film (although all reports suggest any new FF film will be a reboot with an all new cast.

Wait there though, I’m not finished.

According to Heat Vision blog Chris Evans has been offered the role of Captain America.

Marvel has not confirmed the development and CAA, which reps the actor, declined to comment.

Out of the three mentioned I would have to say Evans is the best choice. He’s got a bit more to him than the others and has the charisma needed to play Cap. Plus he is a known name and face, but not a huge name if you know what I mean.

Therefore, we may have finally got out Captain America. Mind you Alex Ross (the brilliant artist behind Marvels, Kingdom Come and so much more) has suggested John Hamm (Mad Men) as “Captain America is supposed to be the patriarch of the Marvel universe. To get a guy in his early to mid-20s is only thinking about where the character began, not what he ultimately needs to become.”

I have to agree with him. All the people chose to audition for the role are just that bit too young, Aaron Eckhart or Mark Valley would have been cool, but Hamm would also work (he’d be great as Superman though). Like I said out of the three names at the top Evans is the best of them.

Let’s just wait for the official announcement.

Do you think Chris Evans is the best choice for the role? Will he be able to fit it in with his Radio 2 morning show (a joke for the Brits there)? What superhero role should John Hamm play?

  1. Hmmm, Mr Evans as Cap? I’ve only seen him in Push and the FF films. He was rubbish in both of those roles so I’m not too confident in a great Cap performance if it is confirmed.

    In saying that though, i’ve no idea who should play Cap so all I can do is trust the casting peeps at Marvel Studios will pick a good actor for the role. They’ve done well so far.
