    Not my type of movie but will watch it now that he is in it, I love Chris Evans!!!!

  • Ssquared

    This was a terrible choice. He looks and FEELS nothing like the Cap and he’s a stiff, awful actor. Great casting, Marvel. They ruined Daredevil with bad casting and now this.

  • Meh

    I thought Marvel was above casting people just for their looks, guess I was wrong. They clearly didn’t cast him for his acting skills…

  • Amy

    I’m hoping he proves me wrong. I mean, he’s too modern.

  • Amy

    marvel Studios, I trust you, but what?

    Also at least this is good news that they WILL recast Fantastic 4

  • brightside

    Isn’t it about time that HW took a break from all these superhero movies? When you’ve seen one movie about a guy in a spandex suit saving the world you’ve pretty much seen them all, yawn. It gets boring.

  • BuckyRules

    Don’t care about captain america, wh plays Bucky? the REAL HERO who knows what war is and will do anything to ensure victory, (use a damn gun and shoot..lame ass steve rogers who does not takes WAR thatis. Jeez)

  • Troy

    I don’t think this guy is a suitable Captain America. He is a mediocre actor and as a star role will just be laughable. Maybe teenagers will like it. I mean, hey, they should just call it “Not Another Marvel Movie.”

  • Nova

    Not a good choice…since he is already one of the Fantastic 4.

    Stupid stupid stupid….there are so many other actors out there with no connection to super hero roles that they could have chosen from. wtf?

  • nycgirl

    Chris Evans is smokin hot. And he was hilarious in Not Another Teen Movie. I also liked him in Sunshine. His clothes should be on my floor.

  • anon

  • love him

    In Spain we love CHRIS EVANS!!!!!!!! thanks!!

    xoxo for everybody, USA is great! :D

  • SB

    My vote was for Mark Valley, now the star of the current action-adventure show, Human Target. Before that, he was relatively unknown, except for his roles in shows Boston Legal and Days Of Our Lives. While great at snark tho, never would’ve guessed he’d be such an ~awesome~ action-adventure star until Human Target, so he definitely deserves to be noticed! ;D

    As far as Chris Evans.. really? I agree, it’s weird cuz he is already in Fantastic Four. And he seems to fit that role way better than he would this character. But whatever, I’ll still be curious to see what they do with it.. ;P

  • OMFG!

    CHRIS EVAN?! OMG F**K YEAH!!! I THINK I C*ME A LITTLE! I’ve been telling everyone that!

  • OMFG!

  • OMFG!
