Marvel wants Captain Planet to play Captain America

The rumor mongers have uncovered who Marvel wants to pick up Steve Roger's shield last seen on Tony Stark’s workbench. Al Gore's tree hugging side-kick, Leonardo DiCaprio!

That's right, Leonardo DiCaprio is the first name being bandied about Marvel Studios as their pick for Captain America. And, you may remember just a few weeks ago Brad Pitt was named as Marvel's first choice for Thor? Well, now Latino Review says Pitt is in the running as Marvel's second choice for Cappy as well. Of course they add this disclaimer...

Now before some loser film website goes out there and tries to debunk me let’s get it straight. Don’t expect Marvel to go on the record and say “Yes it’s true, we are looking at so and so.” Hollywood doesn’t work like that. Studios and production companies only go on the record to announce the casting of a role when it’s official. I announced the lead in the upcoming Prince of Persia. It took the trades weeks later to make it official. That being said…

NO OFFERS HAVE BEEN OFFICIALLY MADE! NOBODY HAS BEEN CAST YET! DICAPRIO IS PROBABLY CLUELESS AT THIS POINT!

Just because Marvel wants him, doesn’t mean they are going to get him.


Interesting... But I dunno. Leo seems more like the skinny pre-serum Steve than he does the ultra-cut Captain. And frankly, he's too GREEN to be Red, White and Blue.

Is Leonardo DiCaprio a good casting choice for Captain America?
