*UPDATE* Who Do You Think Should Play Captain America In An Avengers Movie?

July 26, 2008

Marvel Comics is wondering who might play Cap in the Iron Man and Incredible Hulk teased Avengers movie. With Iron Man a huge hit and Thor and Ant-Man both in the works; they put forth four candidates: Matt Damon, James Marsden, Ryan Reynolds and Nathan Fillion.

Read their reasons for each. I kinda like Fillion as Cap. What do you guys think? Leave Comments. Link


From; July 25, 2008:

comic-con-2008-logo-786575 Will Captain Jack Harkness hang
up his trademark trench coat and suspenders for a certain  star -spangled shield?

The rumor mills are all abuzz that Torchwood’s leading man John Barrowman seems to be in the running to play iconic comic book hero Captain America in an upcoming Hollywood feature film scheduled to be released in 2011.

(Barrowman) teased the audience about the possibility that he might be up for the role of Steve Rogers when questioned by a fan if he would be up for “rocking the blonde hair” of Marvel superhero Captain America.

“I would love to play Captain America,” said Barrowman, who later admitted that there had been discussions with his agents about him playing the role.

So will Barrowman take up the Captain’s famous shield? Torchwood producer Julie Gardner said she would “intercept that email” in order to hold onto her series’ lead. Season Three of Torchwood, comprised of five one-hour episodes, is set to launch next year on BBC America.

    I think Bruce Campbell is the only guy whose got the heft, and the great thing about the Super Soldier program is that Cap can be believably anywhere between 30 and 50 years old.
