Clean-cut actor Chris Evans is "this close" to taking the role of Captain America, according to exclusive news revealed by The Hollywood Reporter. Evans, who appeared in both Fantastic Four films, has reportedly been offered the role. Both Marvel, which owns the property, and Evans' agent declined to confirm the news.
If he takes the plum role, the actor would star in three Captain America films as well as in The Avengers movies. He would also be required to make appearances in other Marvel films in which the character fits. Sounds like a reaaaaalllll tough job and the opportunity of a lifetime for the actor, who will next be seen in another hot comic property, The Losers, this Spring. The only glitch is Evans' commitment to star with Anna Faris in the rom com, What's Your Number. Since both Captain America and Number are scheduled to shoot this summer, things could get dicey for Evans, who was not initially considered for the role.
Do you think Evans will make a good Cap'n? Should he pull out of the Faris film in order to take this role? We say screw the rom com; those are a dime a dozen. The comic book movies always make the most loot cakes!
