    nooo!! he’s WAY too hot for her!!

  • Jazz

    Well besides the fact that Chris Evans was cast as the lead role, this just helped solidify my intentions never to see this movie.

  • anna

    but later on he’s be with scarlett johanson right? because captain america dates the black widow! doesn’t he?

  • monreal

    Who’s that?! She could pass up as Chris’ mother!

  • daylight dancer

    he’s hot, but Hayley is gorgeous.

  • Paulina

    Ugh, I don’t like her. Keira should have been Peggy.

  • me

    i can see taking him seriously in a superhero role.

  • Alexa

    Hayley is beautiful and has amazing screen presence. Anyone who has actually watched her any of her movies will know this.

  • Catchy

    I bet this movie will suckk


    at 1st glance i thought that was victoria beckham long-haired and PREGNANT!!!

  • caxposed

    I’m sorry, WHO?!

    Shouldn’t they get an American actress to play the lead female role? I thought Peggy was from Virginia… If they’re casting her, they might as well re-cast Captain America and let James McAvoy take a shot at it.

    I would wonder if the Avengers is going to be Iron Man III lol. I can’t see either of these guys ( Evans or that other dude’s who’s going to be Thor) outshining Robert Downey Jr. in that movie. His mere presence will take over the movie.
    I hope Evan does well as Captain America, but right now, I just can’t imagine him in the part.

  • lola

    Why are the casting this young losers (not the actress so much but I mean Chris Evans) as superheros? Superheroes are supposed to be MEN not weeny pretty boys. The new Batman films and Iron Man films did well because Christian Bale and Robert Downey Jr are believable as heroes because they are proper men and they can act. Who the f**k is Chris Evans any ways? I’ve heard of his name but have no idea what he has been or how he has any relevance.
