Spielberg

Spielberg should drop everything and direct this bad boy. I know that sounds like a long shot. But god said let there be light... and what was there? ..light. So if he wants it he gots it. And for my money there isnít a director out there that's better at killing Nazi's then The Beard himself. Plus he's the kind of guy who likes to mix up his genre's so why not tap that Superhero genre. Who is with me?

more ideas

some folks were mentioning that captain america would need a little older, tough military look. i am going to now go with josh brolin. he's been popping up in some sweet roles(Grindhouse and no country) and when he's cleaned up he still pulls off a young tough looking actor. i think he would be amazing as steve rogers and also would pull of the look as the capt. in uniform!

Bar Raised

Well with Ed Norton and Downey Jr. Captain America would have to be someone bigger. He's the Leader of The Avengers. Problem is Norton would need massive workouts. Also let's not forget that Cap is a New Yorker. Not Texas.

Matt Fox is a good call

Matt Fox is a good shout for Captain America, but this movie will tank everywhere except America... World feeling for the US isn't great right now, and a movie that celebrates the US like CA will, just won't sell anywhere else... The very same reasons they made all those changes to the GI Joe team for that movie.

Casting 101

Since the flop of DareDevil with Ben affflack and Ghost

rider with Cage-Bot the studios will be a little more picky

on whose gonna spearhead the Cap America movie.

Whomever becomes Cap will be in the Avenger movie

and possible have cameos like Stark did. So we are

talking 3 Cap movies + 3 Avenger flicks. That a lot of

money to through away on weak casting!!!


Acting, Build & Screen presence is key
Casting 101 folks, even you chin bone is important!

Josh Lucas or Matthew Fox would be okay; both of them have the look and the body type. If Gary Sinise or Michael Biehn were only younger, I'd go for them.

YESSS!!!!!!

Oh dear God, please let this happen! Ever since The Departed I've been screaming that DiCaprio would be perfect for the role. He's an excellent actor, he's got the all American, steely blue eyed look, and plus he's a fanboy.

Seriously, I'd love to see my casting wish come true.

sorry leo :(

i like leo as an actor but leo is no captain america. i doubt he would do it anyway considering it would mean he would have to be onboard for multiple films. and unless marvel steers clear of the same old assembly line story and villian formula, (its marvel- and you know they will just keep glutting it since it worked initially) they wont have to worry about what big name stars they get. its going to get very old and very tired very quickly.

Matthew Fox maybe?

Too be honest I'm not hugely interested in the character. The writers will have to do some seriously cool stuff to make the character appeal to modern audiences (especially those who aren't American)

Matthew Mcconaughey

I have always thought that this Matthew Mcconaughey couldn't act his way out a cookie jar. But recently i saw WE ARE MARSHAL. Surprisingly he was very good and diverse. Aside from the acting aspect (whomever they choose) the Cap America movie really comes down to good writing and a good director to inspire the actor to do wonders, like IRON MAN. The real dilemma here is that the american comic hero archetype has gotten very old and redundant. All these fucker are the same. You see one hero ,

The real dilemma here is that the american comic hero archetype has gotten very old and redundant. All these fucker are the same. You see one hero , you've seen them all. So as i said it's in the hands of the writer and director to do breath life into old relics like Cap-America.

Exp. HellBoy! Now that a fresh start!!!

Dude...McConaughey!! He's the all-american boy! He has the chops but his choices in starring roles as of late have seriously lackluster. I think that the franchise and Matt would benefit from this tremendously. Let's see it!!

Just an opinion...

...and I'll probably get my ass chewed for this, but is Captain America really that interesting of a character to get a huge name actor? He kind of suffers from the Superman syndrome. He's a boyscout, you have to really work to give him conflict. As much as I would like to see these movies, I think it's tough to make them relevant to today. I think that's why you see the Spidermans, Batmans, etc outsell Superman and such. I stick with Josh Lucas or Thomas Jane, but a few have mentioned Patrick

They should go with Gary Colemen.



Matthew Mcconaughey has a cigar chomping,
all American look to him. He is a Texan and aged enough to be Steve Rogers. Leo is a cry baby type dude with a girly voice. Paul walker is too much of Cali, surfer dude.

Scott Speedman (English) or Patrick Wilson are not notable actors to be a american icon.

If they keep casting all these stars it will be the Superhero equivalent of Ocean's 11. Whether or not that's a good thing, you decide.

Any or all of the above would be great. People you gotta look past the actors and see the characters they are portraying. I think Leo would really be able to pull it off.

I agree it's unlikely they'll get all those A list stars together for the Avengers movie (Norton, RDJ, Sam Jackson etc) but is it possible The Hulk will be in 'Hulk form' throughout the story therefore no need for Norton?

Balance

Pittís getting to old. But there is going to be a newbie, because you already have Norton, Downey and Jackson. That would be too many stars in one movie. Total chaos. Everyone trying to scene steal would take away for the characters. So to balance Capt. and Thor are going to be newbieís.

On another note I donít really see Norton continuing on to an avengerís movie. Maybe a Hulk 2 but not for the avengerís. That might work out then if Norton drops out they could get Leo to play Capt. but who

Cap

I always thought Brad Pitt was perfect for the role of Captain America. Right Build, looks like Steve Rogers, not done a comic book adaptation yet...only problem is he's perhaps too old now.

If they can get Leo to commit to the film, it'd be great. With the awesomeness of Iron Man and the Hulk I now have better faith in Marvel movies and the casting decisions they're making. Although I do agree with everyone who is concerned with the budget of the Avengers movie. It'll be over 100 million dollars for the actors' salaries alone!

I'll take a good actor over a HUGE bulky guy any day.

Plus Leo, Norton and Downey in the Avengers. Woah sh*t that would be amazing.

MOVIE PLOT

Hehheh... and about the cost of the avengers movie with the A list talent involved... They should just place the whole movie around a conference table in the Avengers HQ, where the heroes are sitting around shooting the shit for 2 hours. no special effects needed.

I don't know, I used to have a huge problem with DiCaprio, but the more I see him, the more I like his work and his acting style, but he just doesn't fit the part to me. I can't imagine who would fit the part of Steve Rogers, but he's got a very specific look to him that they're going to have to pin down. I just don't see Leo playing him.

Cost of Avengers?

So how much is the Avengers movie going to cost? If they keep getting A-listers to play every member, I can see the cost being well over 100 million. You've got Norton, Downey, and now possibly DiCaprio (plus whoever is Thor and Sammy J as Fury) and you're talking some serious paychecks, not to mention them all sharing screen time. I just don't see it working, but who knows.

Well

When I heard about Downy Jr., I thought "really?" and then with Norton the same thing. Both did very well in their respective roles. So Leo, doesn't seem right, but Marvel's doing well in casting, so I'll trust them if they choose him. He's better than their last choice: Matthew Ma=cConaughey. Plus, the point of Cap is that he used to be a scrawny kid and the super soldier serum made him even more. Leo bulks up after filming those initial scrawny guy scenes, it could really work.

Leo has bulked up in recent years, he's got the body, and he's an amazing actor. Whoever said he isn't needs to rewatch the last five films he's made. I think he would be a great choice.


BUT

I don't think he'd ever actually accept this role unless the script is amazing.

This is cool Dicaprio has slowly climbed in to the ranks of my fav. actors ever since Gangs of New York, he earned a spot in my top 10 with the Departed and Blood Diamond. Id like to see him get a bonafide franchise and I also think hes got that All-American look and attitude that I think is necessary to Cap.

Why not Leonidas?

Does anyone else think that Gerard Butler would make an awesome Cap? He's got the look, the size, can convincingly change his voice, and anyone who wasn't convinced enough by his acting abilities in '300' should check out 'Butterfly on a Wheel'.

I've taken the liberty of doing a quick mockup b/w sketch in order to show what this guy would look like in the classic ensemble and expected short blonde hair. It's crazy how different he looks than in '300'. Check it out.

Wahlberg

Give this guy a franchise worth his ability. He's got the size, the voice, fairly well known, plus he knows action. If anyone can pull off army its him. Dicaprio can't pull it off as a "test subject" for his country, just seems too smart a guy to be just a soldier.

Turns out he's a great actor

Anyone who has seen The Departed and Blood Diamond know that the guy I used to call DiCraprio has turned into a damn fine actor. I would have never thought of him for Cap, but I'm all for it.

SAY NO TO LEO!!!!

Giving Leo the role will be tantamount to Jessica Alba In FF! WE WILL ALL HATE IT!!!! He's not tall enough, his voice is to high pitched, and he doesn't have the appeal to weild the shield. I have no definitive answer as to who should play the man, but not Leo, that's for damn sure.

On a side note, though, this film had better not have Bucky in it either. He'd be the the end of it before it even began. Robin was one of the Bat nails in the Bat coffin back then, Bucky would be the same now.

They only justifiable scenario to have him would be to base the film on the current comics story line, and that would be a BAD idea as well.

Something new to consider

i have given this some more thought and I have realized its possible to have both dicrapio and someone else if they use the infamous robo cop plot turn. Start it up first part with a decent actor and mid way in the movie have him nearly killed off. He volunteers to take the super soldier formula and is transformed into captain america. After that he is seen mostly in the movie with the mask on so pretty much any voice can be used to replace the current voice of the actor. The result: Dicrapio

Danny devito could be cap. Point is that once they get the mask on its not gonna matter to much who is wearing the mask as long as the voice is still there. After all it worked for v for vendetta.

How about Jason Lewis?

My wife recently drug me to the sex and the city movie, what about this guy, Jason Lewis for Captain America? He certainly looks the part more than many others mentioned. Not sure if he can act or not.

How about Eric Dane (Feast and'Grey's Anatomy')
or
Ray Stevenson, (the new Punisher)

Marvel Top Choice

Either way McConaughey is not going to be Cap cause Marvel denied it would happen though he was being considered which just shows how Marvel thinks.

Things to look at

You'd have to find an actor that fits the following:

1) Is willing to sign a multi-picture deal.

2) Has the physical build of Captain America. No CGI or padded suits please.

3) Sounds like Captain America should.

4) Has acting chops... this is most important.

Leo fits a couple, but not really the build and probably wouldn't do multiple pictures unless Scorsese directs it.

Pitt probably fits the bill best, but I don't see him as Captain America.

Damon would be a decent

Damon would be a decent choice... I don't think height would be much of an issue really. He pulled off the Bourne movies being the height he is.

McConahey would need to alter his voice severely because who wants their Captain America to sound stoned all the time? If memory serves he didn't sound so "Texan" in Reign of Fire, so maybe it can be done.

No Name

Look at Iron Man and Hulk, they seem to be rocking and have known actors, the idea is to go with someone low key that is strong in their own right. So far Marvel has shown that going with someone that makes you say "Wait that guy is going to play that Superhero?" has been working strong. So a no name could work but at the same time might not bring the same affect they have had thus far.
Also 'nodirectionhome' the reason for Sammy Jackson as Fury was that it was based off of the Avengers

Also 'nodirectionhome' the reason for Sammy Jackson as Fury was that it was based off of the Avengers Ultimate series (just Google 'Ultimate Nick Fury'and you can see for yourself) and it was a dead hit. It doesn't have to do with Hollywood being PC, it was making the fans happy.

no name

This is a big mistake....the studios need to go with a relatively no name for this one... Captain America is such an iconic character...it was like the rumours of casting superman with brendan fraser....thats just silly!

A no-name also allows them to spend more money elsewhere...AND a bigger guarantee to lock them in cheaply for a few movies down the road (AVENGERS baby!)
Someone like DiCaprio would likely slow down future productions with being picky on salary, creative rights, scripts or

Even though dicaprio is amazing at whatever he does I just don't think he is built enough for cap. Pitt on the other hand would be a great Captain America he has the body and range for something like that.

I love the works of Leo, Pitt, and Damon, they're great actors but when they get big names for these comic book heros all I see is the actor, not the character. (ex: george clooney, ben affleck, Nic Cage). My pick would be Ryan Philippe, he's got the look and is recognizable, but not a huge star. my only concern would maybe be his height.

I honestly like Leo.Pitt can portray a hero as we saw with Achillies. He would definetly hold a chareacter like Thor or Capt. but he has to get bigger. I think McConaughey is the right choice ala Bale was for Bats.

what about josh duhamel?

i wonder if Josh Duhamel is on this list of candidates. whether you liked transformers or not, the least you could admit is that this guy is on the cusp of being a bigger name. he's got the presence, he's got the voice, and the looks to pull off cap in and out of the costume. McConnaughey has the looks and build, but his voice is just not full or deep enough to be the live action cap that I envision from the books. josh duhamel for capt. america, make that shit happen.

SHAQUILLE O'NEAL = box offiice gold !!
second choice : Ron Jeremy

Serioulsy, they probably will make him some ethnicity other than white; ala Nick Fury & Sam Jackson. So get ready for a black mexican Captain America. I know this reads racist but its not; just simply stating how pinheads in Hollywood try to be blatantly PC as of lately. Cedric Entertainer's HONEYMOONERS, anyone?

America?

Ok can anyone think Captain America for a minute? DiCaprio went up a few notches with Departed but is still no Captain America. Neither is Damon or Pitt, neither could be as large though they are both fit. Also does anyone understand how Captain America is annoying with his I am the best attitude? They should look at McConaughey a la Reign of Fire, he can be the right size and also can play the all American that annoys everyone and maybe for once make a decent movie. Also for everyone that's

No Cap for Dicap!

I have nothing against him really, but this is a very bad idea. He's too suave and not bold enough to be patriotic. I just can't see him live up to the role. He also has to gain a lot of mass to fill up the suit. Cap's big, not thick or anything, just a big guy. I would like Marvel to really look into this before they start picking top actors. They need to pick someone who's going to be the character not play him. But I seriously do not think he's going be a good choice.

Did captain america shrink in the laundry.....

EEEWWWW!! Uh Captain America is supposed to be a super soldier. That implies he is really big and strong. Having two guys who would probably measure half the size of big man in blue is not a good idea. Thats like having danny devito or martin short as the hulk. hehehe Maybe give them a supporting role but that main role needs to goto someone else.

I like wither choice, I think they are both good choices. Leo would certainly have to bulk up but he has the acting chops that this role would need!

i totally agree. Josh Lucas is a nobody. I dont know what this guy did to make them try to "force" him on us. Def a horrible idea for America.

Thomas Jane is also a nobody in a sense to the masses. For a role like this, they need someone that the whole world knows and likes because lets face it...Captain AMERICA! You need an actor with mass appeal due to the characters very pro-American nature

A nobody wouldn't help them make $ because that is def a huge factor in this game.

Oh my god that would be incredible. He is by far one of the very best actors working today, his roles as of late in The Departed and Blood Diamond were incredible. This would make the project insane.. forget Matthew McGay, I would love to see Leo as the Cap'n. I hope they sign him somehow.

Imagine an Avengers lineup with Edward Norton, Leonardo Dicaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, and Robert Downey Jr??
