The other thing to keep in mind is that the media is going to report more heavily when the perceived name of the actor in contention is bigger or will grab some attention. The GA will more likely read an article that says "Tatum Considered for Captain America" more than they would if it said "Bethel Considered for Captain America". That is why we always see Tatum and Phillipe as the first names mentioned with Vogel and Bethel as almost afterthoughts. What this means is that there could be other actors, but public interest in that particular actor doesn't warrant making it a headline.

Don't you guys know about the script problems? Can't you see that Marvel is obviously unable to cast this film and the end result will bring us all to ruin?

It's true I swear to God I READ IT ON SOME GUYS TWITTER!
Well if it was on Twitter, it must be true

Holy SNIKIES!! 13 pages already!!! I remember when the same 6 people posted in the original thread for like years... now... BAM!! This topic has exploded!!

As for some casting suggestions... I thought that Union Jack could be played by...

Andy Whitfield of Spartacus: Blood & Sand or Michael Bisping, depending on the amount of actual dialogue the character has. (Ugghh, I can just feel the flaming begin) I like the casting suggestion of Jason Stratham, but wonder if he would consider such a small role?

Of course. Look at the Italian Job (good movie, btw).

Ryan Phillippe still needs to audition, he mentioned this a few days ago. And depending on how that goes, he may have to come in again to read with actors up for other roles. We are looking at first week of April most likely.

And if this turns out to be the final list, then how careful they are in their decision making progress instills no confidence in me because of what the inevitable outcome will be(someone I don't really care for).

I just hope we get an actor not yet on any lists and that is why they are taking their time.




Exactly.....the reported list of actors in contention "allegedly" is rather unimpressive.

Even if a decent actor like Phillippe is cast, it still would be a horrible reach of a mis cast. He is far to short and small body wise for Steve Rogers/Cap.

Someone in here earlier suggested Alexander Skaarsgaard from True Blood and I actually think he would be a decent choice, compared to the rest of the clowns that are considered to be auditioning....allegedly.

OK, so I've been away for a little bit and don't feel like reading through 13 pages...Can someone tell me why Garrett Hedlund's name isn't in the poll? Is he no longer in contention for the role?

Entertainment Weekly posted an update to their casting story stating that their source says that Hedlund is now out.

That sux! I wasn't a fan of him at first but as time drew on then I found myself being more enamored to the thought of him as Cap. Oh well, I'll have to vote Evans (or maybe Vogel?) then.
Thanks for the update people!

Mark Valley has just wrapped season 1 of Human Target.

Mark Valley is a military vet. he went to West Point.

He actually has a personality. He looks like a classic American action hero. He would not be upstaged by Robert Downey, Jr.

You guys are talking about these girly manboys like CHANNING TATUM, MIKE VOGEL, and GARRETT HEDLUND.

Mark Valley is already Captain America in real life.

I think either Chris Evans or Ryan Phillippe would be the best options because The Avengers has to be looked at more than Captain America film. An actor needs to be casted that can hold his own against Norton (pending) and Downey Jr. Mark Valley is too old to be Captain America, we're getting an origin here.

Yes, you're right, but he's exactly like a middle-aged Captain America. I wish it weren't so, but that just won't work, considering this film is supposed to be the beginning (of a 9-picture journey, no less).
