Chris Evans: Your Next Captain America?

Chris Evans has reportedly been offered the role of Captain America!

The 28-year-old actor, who played a superhero in the Fantastic Four series, would star in up to three Captain America movies plus The Avengers films and other Marvel projects.

Chris is lined up to shoot What’s Your Number? with Anna Faris, THR notes, which is a possible conflict – Captain America will shoot in England this summer.

Chris was not listed in the initial round of actors up for consideration and reportedly did not screen test, having worked with Marvel in the past.

DO YOU THINK Chris would be a good Captain America – YAY or NAY?

    Finally, a good choice! I hadn’t considered him but he would probably be perfect.

  • gal

    yes! PLEASE take this role! i hope it’s not a rumor though… (sigh) so hot…

  • cat

    aww man, i was really excited because i thought john krasinski was going to be captain america!

  • Josie

    who cares about captain america!? they need to focus on making a superman feature film starring TOM WELLING as superman! *drool faint*

  • heather

    he was the human torch in fantastic four. well so be it. i mean he’s good looking and he does appear to be an all-american guy.

  • Crazytalk

    LAME !!!!! He can’t act ! They should have cast Ryan Phillippe or Channing tatum !

  • Dawn9476


    Deadline reported that he was in the running at first about four weeks ago but then a couple of weeks later, they reported that he was no longer in contention though that didn’t stop stupid gossip sites like Perez running with him being cast in the role.

    @Crazytalk: ew channing is way past his prime && ryan is a scumbag

  • anon

    Good Choice. Liked him in Sunshine (under-appreciated sf film)

  • maggie

    I love Chris! He would be PERFECT FOR THE ROLE!! God i hope its true!!!!

  • Hell No

    @ jjgu: Channing Tatum is the perfect Captain America as he has the look more than Chris Evans and I like his acting.

    He will also bring in the box office pull.

    By the way, Channing Tatum will be 30 yrs old in April 2010 so not past his prime WTF.

    I’m not taking this serious until Marvel offically confirms it as it will be changed by tomorrow.

  • Poirot

    Chris Evans is an excellent choice.His younger brother Scott should get a role in the movie too.

  • Halli

    Yes. As long as that guy from The Office doesn’t get the part

  • Halli

    @Hell No:

    Channing Tatum can’t act for crap.

  • Chris Fan

    NAY! Very little potential for him to go shirtless if he took that role.

  • Dreads

    This guy is drop dead GORGEOUS. Sooooo good-looking. He would be good….they would attract many girls anyway! =)

  • cari

    Not a good choice. Too goofy looking.

    Chris Pine would be genius though. I hope Marvel gets a a greta director and writers and doesn’t eff this up. Iron Man is about the only good comic movie they’ve done. The rest sucked.

    RE: Superman. Christopher Nolan has been handed the keys. Along with Jonathan Nolan and David Goyer this will be something to really look forward too. I hope they look at Tom Welling though before closing that door. Smallville producers can’t be too happy, kinda crushes their movie plans.

  • Ruby

    eh…………i was sort of hoping John Krasinski would get it! he a good actor and i would love to see him beef up muscle wise for the film..i dnt think one actor should be 2 different super heroes.

  • Amy

    I know they plan to reboot Fantastic Four, but this seems like a poor choice for all the confusion is would cause anyway.

  • http://! ivanka

    GREAT CHOICE:) hot too

  • Louie Louie

    The guy already played a Marvel character. And he’s not a manly man, he’s a total pretty boy. WTF!! Steve Rogers isn’t an abercrombie pinup. They should have cast someone that nobody knows, like they did with Chris Pine in the new Star Trek. This movie is going to suck if he accepts this, if it’s even true.

  • Christine

    Awesome choice!!! Can’t wait to see Chris in this!

  • sheila

    His career is going forward, unlike his ex girlfriend (prostitute Jessica Biel)!

  • sotos

    Hey Yes he is a great choice!!! Cant wait to see him as Captain!

  • dude

    Marvel needs to be more creative and imaginative, this guy is cool but he’s not an unknown and has already played as the Human Torch. They need somebody with a fresh face and who has’nt played a comic book hero already.

  • tasha

    Now, Jessica Biel wishes she had be still with him together, Justin Timberlake isn’t helping her career or her famous status, and anyway she has changed her profession to a prostitute!

  • Belinda

    He’s not good looking. His face is way too average.

  • Beth

    What a bad choice!

  • rodrigo

    he cant be another superhero he’s already johnny storm from the fantastic four. How’s That!!!

  • The truth

    They haven’t made a decision yet? Hear that Hayden Christensen was up for the part to.He haven’t played comic book hero either. Hope they give him a chance to play the role. He needs to get out are playing those other roles he play. And play something worthwhile.Would like to see him doing something different. Hope they consider him.

  • The truth

    Sill think chris evans is hot too!

  • doctorsdatingsite

    He is the best

  • Tyra

    No i want Jensen Ackles to get the part!
