    Default The next Captain America is named

    Chris Evans Wins the Role of 'Captain America'
    After nearly two years of speculation, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news on Monday that Chris Evans will be playing Marvel Comics' iconic hero Captain America in the big-screen adaptation.

    The movie, titled "The First Avenger: Captain America," was announced in 2008 after Marvel Studio's first production, "Iron Man," became a box-office hit. The names of many actors -- from established stars to mostly unknowns -- have been rumored to be up for the role for months. Action movie veterans Channing Tatum ("G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra") and Garrett Hedlund (the upcoming "Tron Legacy") were reportedly considered, as were TV regulars Chace Crawford ("Gossip Girl") and Scott Porter ("Friday Night Lights"). Even wild-cards like "The Office" funnyman John Krasinski tested for the part.

    Chris Evans was a late addition to the roster of potential leads, but he had already established himself as a comic-book hero by playing the Human Torch in the two "Fantastic Four" movies. This goes against director Joe Johnston's stated intention to use an unknown actor for the role. But Evans is an American, which was Johnston's other requirement (and left out foreigners like Australian "Avatar" star Sam Worthington).

    Finding the right actor to play Captain America has been pivotal for Marvel Studios because they have grander plans for the character beyond the one film. According to Johnston, "The First Avenger" is an origin story set predominantly during the 1940s, when the red-white-and-blue suited hero first appeared in comics. But the movie will also set up "The Avengers" -- based on Marvel's long-running team series -- where Captain America will lead a group of superheroes that will include Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man.

    While fans of the comics have expressed their doubts at some of the candidates for the role, response to Evans has been uniformly positive. His performance as Johnny Storm in "Fantastic Four" and "Rise of the Silver Surfer" were widely considered to be the best parts of those movies. It's been said that Evans will sign a nine-picture contract that could see him appear as Captain America in multiple films, both on his own and with the Avengers.

    Production on "The First Avenger" will begin in the U.K. in June. Hugo Weaving ("The Matrix") is in talks to play Captain America's nemesis, the Red Skull. It is the third movie in Marvel Studio's pipeline, following "Iron Man 2," which is coming to theaters on May 7th of this year, and "Thor," currently filming for a May 2011 release. "Captain America" is scheduled to open on July 22, 2011.

    In the meantime, Chris Evans has two films set to open this year, both of which also happen to be based on comic books. Next month, he'll play a Special Forces operative in the adaptation of Vertigo Comics' "The Losers." Then in August he will appear in "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," based on the graphic novel series.

    Seems like a terrible choice to me. This guy is the leader of the group so he is going to be telling Downey Jr (IRON MAN), Sam Jackson, Norton (The Hulk) what to do?

    Pretty stupid if you ask me.

    Aww... really? That doesn't seem like a good fit to me at all, and I'm not a big comic fan.

    Loved Edward Norton as The Hulk. Its a shame there were so many creative differences and it doesn't look like he'll do any more of them b/c I really liked the last one-and I'm not a big Hulk fan.

    He is already signed on to be in the "Avengers" that is slated to be released in 2012.

    Hmm..interesting, I may have to check it out then. I know he has a movie coming out that looks very funny where he plays a set of twins-one who has a high college degree and the other who is a stoner.

    I've been a huge Cap fan since I was 11 years old, and I think he will do a good job. I just don't like the fact that he played the Human Torch too. It's a bit weird the same actor is playing two Marvel superheros.

    I don't like the choice initially, may turn out great, but like mentioned earlier, I just can't see him commanding the screen as will be necessary as Captain America.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    First stills:


    Someone's been working out: A topless Chris Evans reveals his toned torso in a newly released scene still from Captain America: The First Avenger in which he plays the title role


    Hero's welcome: Another image captures the superhero being cheered by his peers as his on-screen love interest Peggy Carter (played by Hayley Atwell) watches on smiling


    Stars and stripes: Seen here walking through a forested area with a Captain America shield on his back


    Patriotic: Evans plays scrawny Steve Rogers who wants to fight the Nazis for his country, but can't because he is physically unfit - so he volunteers for a secret research project and is transformed into the superhero


    In the face of evil: Another still shows Hydra soldiers riding on motorcycles


    Enemy: Hugo Weaving's Red Skull, left, Captain America's nemesis and head of the Nazis' terrorist activities

    Feeling better about the quality of this flick with each new pic release. Having a superhero flick taking place during WW2 just screams kickass-ness to me.

    I was thinking the same thing. And casting Hugo Weaving as your arch-villain is pretty kickass as well...
