ok wait since fox has the rights to the ff movies and if they do ever decide to make another one would that mean that he would be the human torch and captin america..................my brain hurts!
Abtrotta - 3/22/2010, 9:33 PM
actually fox is rebooting it with new actors
fightingfoo93 - 3/22/2010, 9:35 PM
He is a slice of America.
Trebuchet - 3/22/2010, 9:38 PM
I'm content. They could have really messed this up and I think they did alright. I'm excited.
Joker1Zero - 3/22/2010, 9:38 PM
I can dig it.

I chose the second option because there was no "I really didn't care who got the part so long as they're a decent actor and would stop the rumors from breeding like rabbits."

Thanks.

YESHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
JLAvenger23 - 3/22/2010, 9:42 PM
I chose the first one, I can't say I wanted someone else but I'm OK witj the choice. It's a fact that he IS thE Human Torch, but FF is on reboot,so new actors and new deal. He has the requirements,or some of them, to be the Star Spangled Avenger. I think he will do great, and this movie promises good things. Just imagine to have Mr Weaving as Red Skull, that's a big A++ to it.

Totally agree with the decision!! :D

FINALLY!!!! lol

He's not the "best" actor for the part, but he's definitely a step in the right direction. (I quoted "best" because I think the best actors for the part are too old to play the part in multiple films, but I really do think Evans will do the role justice based on his role as Mace in "Sunshine")
SentinelofLiberty - 3/22/2010, 9:46 PM
FINALLY! Now I can say.....meh.

He might be okay, and I thought of him for the role back when I watched Street Kings. That said, I was kind of excited about some 'undiscovered talent' winning the role. But every time I thought that, I kept picturing Hayden Christensen with a braid....

Fingers crossed that Evans comes anywhere near doing for Cap what Bale did for the Caped Crusader!
P862010 - 3/22/2010, 9:47 PM
wonder what LEEE voted?
StephenStrange - 3/22/2010, 9:48 PM
I think he will pwn this role with style.

He'll kick ass and take names!
JoshWilding - 3/22/2010, 9:50 PM
This is a fantastic choice by Marvel. Better than Ackles, McPartlin and the rest combined! Marvel couldnt have gone with anyone better!!! :)
EditNinja - 3/22/2010, 9:52 PM
Great news! I don't think he's gonna go back to F4 after this!
Well done, Marvel!
DogsOfWar - 3/22/2010, 9:53 PM
The Human Torch thing should not be an issue

1. The movies are by two different studios
2. They are actors playing roles
3. Fox is rebooting FF anyway
4. Wouldn't you rather have a quality actor vs some crappy one that's never done a CBM?
5. The comics do it, why can't the movies?

How many people in comics have been Captain America, Robin, etc...?

Evans will be great for this role!

He is better than some of the others.
JediMasterJimMorrison - 3/22/2010, 10:16 PM
I was all for Jensen Ackles, but something tells me that this is gonna be another "Heath Ledger as the Joker" situation. Guess we'll really see what his acting chops are capable of.
CaptainOtter - 3/22/2010, 10:18 PM
one of the better choices, and i think he will be great. still, he doesn't scream all american hero, and I'm not as pumped about this as I was with RDJ or Chris Hemsworth. So its all up to how his performance.
Blackreverend - 3/22/2010, 10:21 PM
I think It's bloody awesome!!! He'll do great!!!

He's a lot better than anyone that was on that short list in the first place.

Now I'm excited...
StraightEdge83 - 3/22/2010, 10:24 PM
He's a pretty good choice. I'm fine with it.
OdinsBeard - 3/22/2010, 10:25 PM
congrats mr evans! good luck sir!
screams - 3/22/2010, 10:31 PM
I'm very excited about this.
gunner - 3/22/2010, 10:35 PM
It will Work :)
BIGBMH - 3/22/2010, 10:41 PM
He's not my dream pick, but compared to some of the names that were being thrown around, he's definitely pretty good. He can fit the body type, his face works, his voice works, he's likeable, and he has some experience with the genre. If Ryan Reynolds can be in two unconnected Marvel movies and a DC movie, I guess I can accept Chris Evans as Human Torch and Cap. I wish him the best of luck. He'll be under a lot of pressure to deliver. Us fanboys can be the harshest of critics.
Ven0m - 3/22/2010, 10:41 PM
meh i just lost all intrest in this movie. I hope Thor rocks.
foxfan - 3/22/2010, 10:43 PM
i'm warming up to him as cap the more i think about it. when he has a good script, he does a good job. heck, he totally captured johnny storm in FF and that script was, well, we all know what it was.
Tc - 3/22/2010, 10:43 PM
I didnt really have someone in mind to play it. So i just hope he does it well. And if he does all the more to him.
ecksmanfan - 3/22/2010, 10:44 PM
I think this is great! He wasn't my first pick, but I think he'll do well with this!

Congrats Chris!
StanDisney - 3/22/2010, 10:47 PM
This is a terrible choice. The guy can't act PLUS he does not look at all like Cap. He has no air of command...nothing...he's a smart a** and that is his schtik
Macksimus - 3/22/2010, 11:04 PM
Well, it could have been alot worse. I think we
should all be glad that we at least have a solid
actor who could very well turn out a great
performance as Cap. I really think he's capable
of it.

However, we should be more worried about the
director - Joe Johnson. Are we going to get
"October Sky" Joe Johnson, or are we going to
get "Wolf Man" Joe Johnson? Who knows for sure.
I'm honestly a little scared.

...but, one thing we can trust regardless of who
is playing cap or who is directing, is the fact that Marvel is producing this movie; Marvel won't let Joe Johnson deliver a crappy movie to the big screen.

In Marvel I trust.
Ranger14 - 3/22/2010, 11:13 PM
I would never have said he was my first choice, but based on all the other candidates he is the best choice. He is a better actor than the others, fits the look and is more ripped than any of the other actors. A little more muscle mass and he will look perfect for the part.

StanDisney@ you obviously haven't watched the other movies he has been in, if you question his acting.
theartofoneness - 3/22/2010, 11:22 PM
i have faith in marvel. Im sure this is the best choice.
Scorpioxfactor - 3/22/2010, 11:22 PM
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH
HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope it's good
when I see it in the theatre. I am not
too big on Evans as Cap. Oh well. It could have been worse. I guess we have to except the reality of him playing the role. Let it sink in. Now that I have done that, I think he has believability. He has been around Hollywood for awhile, so he is not just some kid who has no clue what the hell to do, he isn't going to stay looking young forever either, he will start to look a little more older and that will play to his advantage as he plays Cap in later movies.
NERO - 3/22/2010, 11:24 PM
I'm really happy they went with Chris, he seems like a likeable, earnest, fun loving all American kid and seeing as this first Cap movie will follow the birth of Cap and his maturing as a hero through WWII I think Evans was a very good choice. He has a likeable quality that I equate to Ryan Reynolds and after seeing Sunshine I know the guy can really act, so good going Marvel.

For all the people bitching about the casting, lets be honest... Sure there were a hundred different actors out there who could have been Cap, but barring age limitations, star power, ego, price tag, and a laundry list of other factors we were basically limited to young actors who were mostly unproven or underdeveloped. I freaked when I saw the short list... that was really when I was worried the most that this thing could go off the rails, and when I saw Channing Tatum on the revised list my heart sank even further.

In the end Evans makes sense, and I'm glad he was picked. As for the doubts about Evans previous films especially the FF films; I keep hearing people say the general audiences will confuse him with his role as Johnny Storm and so I tested that. This weekend I had Mrs. Nero and some friends from out of town who were staying with us watch FF on Friday night, Sunshine Saturday, and Push Sunday. They recognized Evans only after seeing Sunshine, they didn't put him together as the guy from FF when they saw Sunshine and I'll tell you what my hypothesis is on that: FF is a completely forgettable flick, it is fluff and not much else... same could be said of Push, but he was noticed more for his better work in a good film than simply being the best actor in a really bad movie as was the case with FF.

With FF being rebooted (thank God) I think the first two films will simply fade away as will Push. I think Cap will be the role that makes Chris Evans and I think he knows that. Anyone who thinks he's going to phone a role like this in is crazy, if anything he's going to break his ass to nail it and give a really great performance, he knows he gets this one Cap flick to warm up before having to share the screen with Ed Norton, RDJ, Sam Jackson, and so many other prestigious actors that I think will come out for cameos in Avengers that he is going to came at this with his A game. He knows that this could be what makes Chris Evans a known and respected actor... So chew on that before you say the guy will phone it in.

In the end he was the best of the options we were given, so Lee I know you want Baking Soda, and I know some wanted Ackels, some wanted this guy or that guy, but out of the realistic choices that we were presented with Evans just fits, so I dig it. Look at the bright side, it could have been Tater, think of that…. “S’up Tony, um Cap’n America.” Ghugh! It would’ve been like Cap’n Crunch meets Vanilla Ice and played with just as much depth as that. Thank Christ it wasn’t Tater is all I can say.
Scorpioxfactor - 3/22/2010, 11:35 PM
Lee, who was it that was trying to find the Flash series on DVD? I saw it the other day and remembered someone was looking for it.
teebtime - 3/22/2010, 11:54 PM
solid choice marvel
THEHAWK - 3/23/2010, 12:11 AM
He's a regular slice of Americana
cris1986 - 3/23/2010, 12:25 AM
