Latest Entertainment News Headlines

It's officially official: Chris Evans is Captain America!

03.22.2010

Last Friday it was reported that Chris Evans was the first actor to receive an offer sheet from Marvel to star in CAPTAIN AMERICA. Evans took the weekend to mull it over and today decided he liked the idea of carrying around the starred shield and has accepted the offer and the role. Yes, CHRIS EVANS IS CAPTAIN AMERICA.

I'm sure we'll get more details about what Evans' contract entails but the original offer from Marvel was said to include an option for a whopping nine films include, obviously, the CAPTAIN AMERICA movies, the AVENGERS saga plus possible appearances in other superhero films. The money was reportedly not much but that's for the first film. Evans, like Robert Downey, Jr., could renegotiate after a successful first outing for more cash.

So what do you think of the casting? I don't know that he's the perfect choice but honestly he's the best choice out of all the candidates I've heard for the gig. The guy was the only good thing about FANTASTIC FOUR and I've heard he delivers an awesome turn in SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD. I'm actually kinda excited to see what he can bring to the role.

Extra Tidbit: Can we just skip the standalone films and get right to THE AVENGERS?

Chris Evans is a good actor and all but comes off as too modern and cocky for Captain America. They also should've had all the actors trying out for Cap read lines with RDJ to test their chemistry, I really don't see the current Tony Stark taking orders from this guy at all.

Oh Well...

As long as he downplays the humor and gets more serious. Captain A. is not supposed to be a comedian.

I also think he is too young to be captain. Looking at the Marvel Civil War, Chris seems too young and naive and won't hold his own on screen with RDJ as Iron Man.

So far this seems to be the weakest link in the Avengers lineup and yet Captain A is supposed to be one of the leaders next to Stark. I even enjoyed the latest Hulk movie with Ed Norton.

I will have to see the trailers for

I will have to see the trailers for this before I have any real opinion on the film but for casting this does not look good. I bet it will bomb like the FF series. And they will have to recast and start anew.

I'd rather Capt.America be a Chris Than a Channing!

I am sick of super heroes from one movie being a superhero in another. One franchise at a time boys! Evans was great as Johnny Storm and think they could have done a lot worse for casting Cap. Why didn't they get Ryan Reynolds, is 2 superheros really enough for him?

Could have been worse...

Would not have been my first pick, but at least it is not Krasinski... Evans was amusing in Fantastic Four movies, Street Kings, Cellular and really impressed me in Sunshine. So I will give him a chance.

Well, here we go...FINALLY

Well, I agree that Mark Valley was dead on the best choice, then Thomas Jane would have been good if we could forget the whole "Hung" thing, and Aaron Eckhart would have been cool. I really liked the idea of Chris Pine and really if not for the height issue Jeremy Renner(*SORRY GUY*!) was my first choice after Mark Valley.
But this kid seems to have some hidden acting chops and if he finds the medium ground and plays it serious(as Cap is) without being too wooden, I say okay.
Anyway, here

The fact is that they needed a man and they hired a man-boy like they keep doing for every comic adaption lately. They keep hiring these boyish looking actors for roles that require a mature finish. Just compare the manliness of Chrisopher Reeves to Brandon Routh and you'll see what I mean.

I have nothing against Evans (I actually liked Push) but he's more a comedian than an actor. He was an okay Johnny Storm but Captain America is not funny.

And no matter how you look at it, after having superheroes portrayed Christian Bale, Robert Downey Jr., Hugh Jackman and Edward Norton, this is a letdown.

Serious?

I think Evans is a good choice. Not the "Best" choice. To play cap, he needs to tone down his comedic persona and pump up his straight faced/hard ass attitude. I saw it for a brief stint in Push, but to play a true leader like Cap and not a secondary relief character like Johnny Storm, he will really need to bring his A GAME!!!!

Still pining for Matt Damon, but that ship has sailed I guess.

It's been a long time coming but I think it's the right choice. Evans was easily the best thing in Fantastic Four and he'll need to take it up a notch to play Cap but good luck to him, he's got my support!

this could work, evans has a steve rogers look, now he can also act but PLEASE don't make him say silly jokes or have a "coool attitude" like the human torch in the awful fantastic four movies! In fact now it is official, I think he was the best contender of the bunch even if I don't understand why marvel wants to cast someone who already has interpreted a marvel character in 2 movies....

Rushed Decision

So. Chris Evans is Captain America. So many negatives, so few positives. This is in my opinion really lazy casting. But... Chris Evans is a good choice for young cap. Ages in the comics are often vague but more or less Steve Rogers is between 18-21 when he becomes Cap. Evans would be able to do pre/serum skinny Cap and early post/serum badass Cap. I think He could bulk and slim down fitting either. But only the earliest days as post serum Cap.

I read master comic artist/writer Alex Ross

I think He could bulk and slim down fitting either. But only the earliest days as post serum Cap.

I read master comic artist/writer Alex Ross recommend Jon Hamm from Mad Men. I haven't seen the show yet, but I looked him up and someone like him is way closer to what they need.

Cap fights for almost all of WWII putting him around 25 give or take when he is taken out of the conflict. Evens is 28 so that is good, but, Cap in the Avengers is Tony Starks counterpart and they always look about the same age. Tony a little older. Cap is the one person Stark always looks up to. It is hard for me to picture scenes of Robert Downey Jr. In awe of Chris Evans. Really I have had a hard time thinking of someone like everyone else who could play this part. Evans in few years maybe, but I don't know. This is my main problem is that I can't picture him as a good counterpart, which essentially is the Avengers. Thor is a God so it is easier to fit him into the mix.

RDJ was perfect casting even though he is a bit older than the character. I hope Evans surprises us with some amazing acting ability here. This will be the hardest role he has ever taken on. Really do think he will do great in Scott Pilgrim though.

Please don't fuck this movie up Hollywood, Marvel, Disney, Santa, Black Jesus, US Military, Satan.

Please! For the fans, for what America used to be, for sick kids, for Daniel Johnston, for endangered species, for crazy homeless guys who think that they are Captain America, and for this loyal fanboy. Knock it out of the fucking park!

I have faith. I first discovered his great acting chops when I saw him in Sunshine. Plus he's a fellow Bostonian. I actually looked up his bio and he went to the high school that my dad worked at once. So I support!

I for one thoroughly enjoy Chris Evans... he hasn't disappointed me in anything and he generally makes things more watchable (Cellular, Fantastic Four, Teen Movie) so I'm cool for him as Cap even though he doesn't necessarily "look" like Cap. He has charisma and presence, and the man can act as well. He's definitely a much better choice than John Krasinski.

Not Diggin' It

I'm surprised to see so many "Hip" comments. Sure Evans is a decent actor but how many superhero roles will this guy play anyway? Fantastic Four, Push, now Cap Am? Maybe I'll change my mind in time but right now I just don't see Evans being a good Captain. I've said this before; anyone who plays Cap needs to have that chemistry with Downey / Iron Man. And Cap needs to be the more matured one. This doesn't look like it's heading in that direction.

Interesting

I think the most interesting idea is him signing on for so many movies. It will be great to see him become the seasoned veteran so many of you are talking about. Every American soldier starts off as an innocent young guy. You don't become a badass or hardened before war, at least not like you think. He is a good actor and while I don't think he looks like Steve Rogers who really does? John Wayne in his college football pictures. Anyways a lot of people are bitching about his size. He's 6 ft 180

He's 6 ft 180 and ripped! If anyone can gain muscle mass clearly it's a guy like this. My only worries are the director and script. The director has his hits and misses but being so advised like Iron Man's director I think he will have less chances to screw up. Really praying it's a good script.

So, nerdly speaking, in the world of MARVEL MOVIES, Captain America looks exactly like The Human Torch. One is a clone of the other. They should make that the plot.

Captain Chris Evans!

I think this decision comes from Ryan Reynolds playing two comicbook characters as well, Deadpool and Green Lantern, Evans was perfect as Johnny Storm and I've seen his performances in Sunshine and PUSH, I think he can pull off a lead character just fine, I was surprised at first but know I can't wait to see what they do with this!

tidbit: my first choice would have been Sam Worthington but I'd take Evans for Capt. over Tatum anytime.

We'll just have to wait and see how he does.

I like Evans, but I think fanboys are gonna have a hard time connecting him to Cap because he was already Johnny Storm. Plus I also see Cap as more of a mature guy. I just don't see him on the same level as Downey Jr. when the Avengers movie comes around. He just doesn't have that aura for being Cap. Time will tell and I'll be open-minded for now. But it'll really need to impress.

I Smell Suckage

Chris is decent. No hater here. Just....he lacks Cap's gravitas and maturity. And no, I'm not just going off the pic above. Sounds like it will suck.

I have hope...

that Chris can pull off Cap. I'm actually excitied. I know this dude can really make something out of Captain American: The First Avenger!

Anyone else sick of hearing about Sunshine as the holy fucking grail of acting? My God. I was apathetic about this choice before, but all this nob-slobbin' praise is turning me against it. DECENT flick, but by no means great.

It's certainly no Nanny Diaries.

i think the point people are trying to make with sunshine is that its an example of chris evans doing serious acting, not that its necessarily a great movie. just out of all the things hes done, its the least crappy.

The least crappy? That's the standard we're measuring his acting by? Wow, talk about low standards.

I agree, enough about the "See him in Sunshine" crap. He was the least of that cast.

He wasn't a bad Johnny Storm. I'm pleased with the casting of Evans. What really excites me is Tatum is not Cap THANK GOD! With Weaving to play Red Skull possibly this has the potential to give us the Cap movie the fans deserve and to round out the Avengers. Avengers Assemble!

With a good director this guy can be decent. When you've got something in the superhero genre just decent isn't neccessarily a bad thing. Good casting, not good enough to get me to see it in theaters, but good.

It's all about the script and the director

The guy's a good actor. The success or failure of this film will depend on how well the script translates to the real world and the director's vision for the character. Say a prayer and light a candle.

While he wasn't my first or second choice, I certainly think he is better for the role than others such as Tatum or Krasinski. He at least has the body for it. Don't forget that the Avengers is like 2 years so he can still look much "older" by the time that movie comes around. Like others I agree he should be given a chance, I mean look what we all thought of Ledger as the Joker? If there is any problem with the film it should be with Joe Johnston. Hopefully to him its not just a mindless

Chris Evans is a good actor.

And seeing as Fantastic Four's getting the reboot treatment, I'm fine with it. He was one of the best actors out of all the candidates aside from Garrett Hedlund. He made the FF films bearable and all he needs to do is hit the gym a little bit. He's in shape, he just needs to bulk up a little bit more and dye his hair blond. I'm cool with this decision.
Those who are complaining can't be placated no matter what. Anyone saying the boy can't act needs to check out "Sunshine" or "Street Kings".

Director = Bad Choice

I think Marvel made a very wrong choice with the director. Joe Johnston joins the ranks of Stephen Sommers and Joel Schumacher. But Chris Evans gives a great perfomance in Sunshine as a "leader." THOR also has it's problems because Chris Hemsworth is a meat head - watch Ca$h. gulp...

Not a bad pick at all Marvel.

I think Evans has what it takes to knock it out of the park. Hes a lead star, looks the most like Cap's type more so than any of the other picks they lined up & I can definitely picture him up there with the likes of Downey Jr and Norton. I can get pumped for this now.

okay people, get over yourself. The guy has paid his dues and is a decent actor. Just because he had a shitty script to deal with with the Fantastic Four movies doesn't give you any say in how "bad of a choice this is" which it really isnt'. The man was great in Cellular, and especially Sunshine. He, out of all the choices was a responsible pick because if you all had half a break would realize that the Captain America that you keep speaking of is the seasoned Captain America that has been

I have been a fan of this one Marvel Character since i was a kid and even I can recognize that Chris Evans will do a fantastic job. If you don't like it fine but we all know with all your bitching and complaining you'll still manage to see it opening weekend. Give the guy a chance before you act like a bunch of fanboys who know shit all about the franchise

I agree that he's the best choice out of all the candidates. And yeah he's the best thing out of Fantastic Four. Though no one mentions this but I like him in "Cellular". But I'll be more confident once I see him in costume. By the way, can anybody tell me if there's gonna be one or two Captain America? I mean, Cap "before" and "after" Super Soldier formula?

for all you "I'm hip to this news"-ers...ask yourself: Can Evans LEAD the Avengers...the answer is no, any way you slice it. Shitty, uninspired casting. I would have been ok with Evans as Hawkeye, possibly, but you are all missing the point. Even if he has the look (which he doesn't), He certainly is lacking the PRESENCE.

The leadership of Cap to The Avengers was permanently screwed up not by Evans being cast, but by Iron Man being released first. We're going to get a team of Avengers led by Tony Stark and Sam Jackson in those films just by sheer release order alone Iron Man is the tent-pole property. He'll lead the team in the movie version of the Avengers, that'll be one of the changes in the film as to the comic.

..he gains some weight and buffs up he will make a good fit. he is a pretty good actor, he just needs to move out of that teen heart throb role like leo dicaprio did. Joe Johnston did say this Cap movie is gonna be different then the books, i wish they would go with a Mark Millar style Cap. i guess he is the perfect age considering WW2 guys were in there early twenties. and by the time Avengers comes out he might look a little order and it will work.

Good for Chris Evans, he deserves the role and was the best choice out of all of the canidates. My dream choice was Jensen Ackles, but I am sure Evans will do a great job. I have enjoyed most of his movies, everything from Fantastic 4 to Cellular to Sunshine. The guy looks the part and has the versatility to stand up for himself against Downey Jr. and Norton. This casting I think is really going to pay off in the end.

first of all the height doesn't matter at all, the camera can mak him look as big as they want him to look. Secondly have you ever heard of hair-dye? And thirdly the fantastic four movies sucked and evans was the only enjoyable part in thoose films. He's not the best choice, but he is certainly a good choice and he can do a great job with this chaacter. Lets see how he does first before you start to diss him.

He really is one of the more solid young actors working today and easily the best out of any list for Captain I've seen (Krasinski included). He just landed the role of a lifetime and you can bet any serious actor will take this role seriousy. I'm sure he'll do great as long as the script is good and the costume doesnt look ridiculous. Long live the Cap!

Not sure about this. I like Evans, but he might be too young. Isn't cap supposed to be more of a mentor figure?

Regardless, I hope the rest of this movie goes a lot smoother than casting has so far.

Im not against the idea of Chris Evans being Captain America. I actually think its pretty good casting, but Evans has already appeared in a superhero flick, and every time he's on screen, I'll expect him to catch on fire.

Good News!

When they mentioned casting the block of wood, I began to get worried. Evans will do great, he has that Star charisma to stand next to guys like RDJ, Norton, and Jackson. Now let's just get him in that suit...

I agree with the Sunshine peeps. He was GREAT in that. But I wonder if there will be a different actor for pre-Cap Steve Rodgers......and I'm so glad Channing Tatum didn't get this.

So I guess it's too late to throw Casper Van Dien's name in for Cap? Just kidding. Although, he does have more of a Steve Rogers look to him and his age fits the role more so than Evans.

Evans is not a bad choice though, and as mentioned, better than the others on the short list. Let's see what this guy can do.

Now I can live with that, Im not sure why people dont like him as cap, he is a better chose then a lot of other people they were thinking about. Just as long as it wasnt Channing Tatum or the guy from the office, now those would have been horrible captain america's

Noooooooo

he is just the average hollywood schmuck. And he is too "funny". I was hoping for a more "Robert Downey Junior" or "Liam Neeson" cool guy that can act and has real charisma. This is just the easy way out...

I totally agree with Zaccheus.

He was such a badass in Sunshine - I think this will work.

Marvel hasn't messed anything up yet.

If you haven't seen Sunshine then you might think its a bad idea. This guy can act, pull off being tough and NOT be funny at all. Sunshine proves it. Good Pick.
