    You might as well call him "Captain Burger King" or "Captain Wal-Mart" in terms of the kind of foreign box office he will bring in.

    Lord knows American Literature and American Films aren't appreciated overseas!
    :rolleyes:
    C'mon now. Saying non-Americans can't enjoy Cap is like saying non-Brits can't enjoy James Bond.

    Iron Man made well under half its box office overseas. "Captain America" is practically daring people across the Atlantic not to see it. You might as well name the movie "The Blind Side" and advertise that it's about football.

    I'm really hoping that John Krasinski doesn't get this role. I can't see him as Cap.

    Having Krasinski's name on the list seems like a studio exec's idea to me.
    "People like that 'Office' show right? Let's get the guy from that."

    I'm a new fan of the comics and I agree, John Kranski is not Steve Rogers. Just not chisled jaw enough.

    I think the reason his name is supposedly in the running is because he's got that everyman quality. Seems like a nice enough guy, and I mean if he bulked up enough, he wouldn't be my LAST choice for Cap. Not first, of course, but still leagues better than Channing Tatum or some other idiot.

    I really hope they pull it out of left field. I mean, remember all the talk of those guys who were in the running for Thor? And nowhere was Chris Hemsworth's name mentioned until he was actually cast. I hope we get the same deal here,and that it's someone good.

    Slimy!

    My two pics for Cap:

    Chris Pine aka Captain Kirk

    Ryan McPartlin aka Captain Awesome

    The guys from The Office just doesn't have the jawline, and I doubt he could pull off the Captain America look.

    I would agree with Pine, he's got charisma.

    And though they may be too old, I also like Gabriel Macht and Patrick Wilson.

    meh, pine might do the part justice, but i don't think he'd get the part because of star trek and the avengers movie. i mean, the guy who played kirks dad is already playing thor. can you imagine the jokes that would be made upon them team up?

    Looks like we can stop worrying. [link=http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=25155]John Krasinski is not Captain America[/link]. I find it hard to believe that Chris Evans is in the running however. One actor being both Human Torch and Cap is even stranger than Kirk and Cap.

    Never said I liked that either. But at least Green Lantern and Deadpool don't exist in the same universe unlike the Torch and Cap do.

    The Red Skull for Hugo Weaving?

    According to the Heat Vision Blog at the Hollywood Reporter, actor Hugo Weaving is in negotiations with Marvel Studios to play villain The Red Skull in "The First Avenger: Captain America." Weaving is best known to genre fans as Agent Smith in "The Matrix" trilogy and as Elf Lord Elrond in "The Lord of the Rings."

    The Heat Vision article states "the dealmaking with Weaving is in a delicate stage that will play out in the next day or so. Agencies grouse that Marvel plays hardball in the negotiating process and also demands multi-movie commitments, though the latter usually applies to actors playing its heroes." Indeed, rumors abound of long-term commitments of up to six films per actor in the various Marvel projects leading up to 2012's "The Avengers.

    Great casting choice if true!

    As much as I loved Chris Pine in Star Trek, I really can't see him playing Cap. Plus, like someone said, his 'dad' is already Thor! However, I find it interesting that Mike Vogel, who's also up for the part, was apparently J.J. Abram's second choice to play Captain Kirk. So he's probably a damn good actor.
    Chris Evans - I hope not. He's already Human Torch, let's leave it at that.
    Also, that Wilson Bethel guy they mentioned in the article just looks wierd and creepy.

    Fixed. Hey,this remindsme.Anyone remember the apparent cameo of N'Sync in Episode II that got cut?

    Slimy!

    No, no, that was not the rumor, slimybug. That was the rationalization of the rumor.

    I guess I can give up hope that Weaving would play Namor instead. However, that aside, he would make a teriffic skull!

    He's way too old!

    And for the record, JointheSchwartz, Spider-Fan and I should really think about getting some treatment for insomnia.

    Slimy!
