Stanley Tucci cast as Dr. Abraham Erskine in Captain America: The First Avenger
Great news on the CAPTAIN AMERICA front!
It's been confirmed that Stanley Tucci will play Dr. Abraham Erskine.
A press release from Marvel Studios only gave a brief synopsis of the character:
"In the early comics, Dr. Erskine was a German scientist behind Project Rebirth, the secret experiment that created the Super Soldier known as Captain America."
Dr. Erskine created the Super-Solider serum that no one was ever able to replicate. He injected Steve Rogers with the serum that turned him from a scrawny fine arts student to a lean mean fighting machine. AMERICA F*CK YEAH!
Tucci joins Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Hugo Weaving, and Hayley Atwell in the film directed by Joe Johnston.
What a great addition to the cast! You guys think so as well?
