This has got to be the worst casting since Chris Evans was cast as Johnny Storm in the FF abominations.  This guy is going to F up Marvel Films worse than Ben Affleck and Nick Cage put together.  Please someone who knows Cap and wants this movie to be believable and watchable post your replies here.  I am so bummed out by this!  I need moral support.  This jokester doofus is not a believable super soldier, or the leader of the Avengers!  Stop the insanity now!  Marvel, please don't waste your money making this movie if this guy is the lead.  It cannot work.  We need a new Cap now!

It sounds like you're basing your opinions off of only the Fantastic Four films. Have you seen any of his other work?

This is rediculous. He was the best part of the FF movies. I totally agree with him being Steve Rogers. I would choose him to be Steve Rogers over Ryan Reynolds being Hal Jordan and i love Ryan Reynolds and think hes a great actor. I think they made an excellent choice.

A lot of people felt this way about Heath Ledger's performance after brokeback mountain, so just wait.

I didn't liked FF, the cast was weak, and i can't imagine Evans as Captain America. Hope i'm wrong and he´s great.

He has been in another crap superhero movie besides the FF called Push so I have seen his work, and how the hell can this dude hold his own on the screen with Rob Downey and Ed Norton. Not another teen movie sucked too.  He's a garbage choice.  No one over 18 can relate to this dope!

I remember a few years back when people tried to petition to have Heath Ledger off of Dark Knight because "a pretty-boy could NEVER play the Joker."

dude, why not have christian bale play cap?  or hugh jackman.  Superhero movies can't keep spitting out "a proven actor" in a new superhero role.  That is why Thor will be better than Cap.  Mark my words.  They'd be way better off with an unknown.  This kid is way too jokey.  Cap is a no nonesense soldier.  This dude is a dorky wisecracker.  I'll bet half these posts are from his team of publicists.  How's he gonna lead the avengers with that persona???  I've been waiting for this movie ever since the ed norton hulk movie mentioned it.  I even have the shield they show in iron man as my desktop.  how many of you even read cap anymore.

Sunshine was good.  Chris was the best part of FF.

 

I'd have prefered someone else as Cap but only because I have a vested interest.  Evans will do a fine job.

What are you talking about? Is your opinion based totally on the fantastic four films. If so than u should def take a look at his acting resume'. Now I am not saying that he would be a perfect cap but im willing to bet that his performance will be good. Heck Marvel and movie execs knows that since The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man people expect so much more from movies based on comics. And if its bad, we will blog and comment until they relent ie (Spiderman reboot)

^Clearly delusional. It is called acting. You play a role one way, then when you get a new movie, you play a role a different way. One role calls for a laid back, irresponsible "wisecracker" and another role requires a serious leader type personality. You would be surprised how many actors can juggle this task.

I dont like the fact of Chris Evans playing Cap either, buuuut I'm sure Marvel knows what they're doing. People are expecting alot from them in Thor and Cap after the success of Incredible Hulk and Iron Man (and soon Iron Man 2!!!).. Have faith in Marvel, if they let us down, then F*CK 'EM!. lol.

In all seriousness, though, watch "Sunshine." You should watch it anyway, but Chris Evans is really good in it. He's an actor, if you want him to play a goofy guy like Johnny Storm, he'll do it. That doesn't mean he'll always act like that, or he can't do serious roles. 
Don't worry, Captain America will be great. And if it isn't, you can just ignore it and act like it doesn't exist (like we all do with 90% of existing comic book movies).

well he is gob-ish, okay,  but i honestly think given the chance he could do justice to the role even if he is portrayed as the funny guy all the time on the office, i can see Jim dawning the shield. my friend said he was being considered for the role but i was pretty sure he was full of it. it got me thinking though

Yeah, he was on a list on here, I don't know how serious it was, though. I guess I just defended Evans for playing a goofy guy so I've got to cut Jim some slack, but he'd really have to work out for it.

Don't get so worked up, man. You're only rewarding him by taking that stress inside yourself. Let it roll off of you, like raindrops upon a flower's petals. AAAUUUUUUMMMMMM.

I admit, Evans wasnt my first choice as Cap, the only Marvel character i like, but i'm going to give him a shot. he's a good actor. true, hasnt really played the really serious guy in a lot of his movies, but i'll give him a shot. i'm a nice guy.

This is just stupid I mean yeah I wasn't too impressed at first but I've got used to the idea and I think he is a fairly good pic for Cap so just settle down mate and maybe look at some of the other awesome movies Chris Evans has been in.

The film will suck if the DIRECTOR makes it suck.  Do you think Batman and Robin would have sucked if the director took it seriously?  Daredevil, Electra, Hulk (friggin Ang Lee); etc.  It's all about what the director decides and allows, not the actor.
