    IT DOESN’T MATTER IF HE’S HOTT!!
    He was already The Human Torch!! Is he really the best Marvel can do? Really the best lead role?? He isn’t unknown, but he should be. Im sure there are plenty of better people that could play Captain America.
    I mean
    John Krasinski IS skinny yes, but so was Steve Rodgers before he became Captain America, it would have made some sense. And sure, he’s not the “hottest” person in the world, does that really matter??
    Of all people, Chris Evans?? Sure this is very upsetting for the people that enjoy Captain America, I guess the best anyone can do is wait to see the movie…I personally don’t think he will be able to pull it off

    According to Deadline, Channing turned the part down. He didn’t loose it.

    With enough special effects, they can work around his lack of acting skills and the fact that he looks nothing like Steve Rogers or Captain America. Hope the supporting cast evens things out.

    @mslewis: Marvel is paying $300,000. Not that it makes much of a difference, Chris Evans? I don’t think so.

    Didn’t he date Jessica Biel at some point? I know, that’s random but I thought he did.

    Aside from whether he fits for the role as Cap, he’s already Torch in Fantastic 4. With the logic that movie X-Men, F4, Spidey n Hulk are in one Marvel universe, this idea is stupid…Chris Evans as Johnny storm okay, even though the movies sucked but as Captain America he is not old enough. Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) would look older than him plus hes does not look like a serious guy. If he does get the job i know i will see the film but i will think less of it even more if he is in the avengers movie

    Great pick! He’s very under-featured. Awesome talent and perfect super hero looks!

    Never thought of him portraying Cap. Good choice!

    If Captain America has a brother Chris’s brother Scott should play the role.

    Disaster.This will be more “Daredevil” than “Dark Knight”.The choice of director was the first hint this movie was going into the tank without one scene being filmed. It’s obvious that Robert Downey Jr. is going to be the anchor of the Avengers franchise and everyone else is simply going to be a sidekick.No problem there.

    Not a good fit. Captain America is a strong man. I don’t get that from Evans at all. Someone like Matthew McConaughey would have been perfect.

    HEY!!! Great! I am so happy for him. Because he is such a great actor but besides few great movies like push and perfect score He did some really bad ones (he was great in all)

    too bad thought cause I was writing a script with him in mind as the male lead. now I don’t know if he will be availabe. Good for him though! cant wait to see him

    I don’t see the big deal with this character. I always thought he was…I don’t know, corny? I mean he has an “A” on his forehead.

    Sleeping Says:

    Chris Evans? He’s okay, but I don’t think he’s that too good of a choice. He looks like the typical person you see in the generic Hollywood superhero movies.

    I might get thumbs down for this, but who cares. I think Mike Vogel would have been better for this role. But I did get a little excited when I heard that John Krasinski was in the running, because he didn’t look like the regular macho superhero. It would have a different kind of depth to the movie if they casted him.

    Probably won’t watch this movie.
