I know, but only reason you guys were saying that was because I screwed up with the manip by stretching his face to fit the mask. Ryan McPartlin has anything but a puffy face .... Krasinski on the other hand. LOL

You also came up with Blaine Blumpkin III so you get a pass as far as I'm concerned.

I myself was never sold on John K. I pushed for Jensen Ackles until Evans started becoming a reality.

Hahaha... You've gotta admit Rock, that photoshop pic looks completely ridiculous compared to what we got.

Hmmm Maybe JK and McPufflin could play the Disney chipmonks in a movie?

I'm so glad JK didn't get the job. He was very wrong for it.

It's definetly looking good so far. It might just be the most successful blockbuster of '11

Financially? Not a chance in hell. But I do think it will do well.

My most hated fan-casting choice was Mark Valley, he's not a terrible actor but he was far, far too old for the role.

John Krasinski would have surprised a lot of people. Everybody immediately thought of Jim Halpert when he was brought up, but he is made to look more geeky and 'normal' for that part, but in real life he could look pretty good, and there were multiple manips that showed he looked very good in the actual suit.

He would have pulled off the "heroic everyman" vibe perfectly.

Heh... I was just talking to a friend about how awesome Chris Evans had been looking in CA and that I'm actually really happy Krasinski wasn't cast like originally reported. Despite our love for the big lug, neither of us could picture it.

Maybe he would've surprised us. But whatever. So happy with Evans!

ETA: And I agree with Mark Valley. I sort of want to punch things every time he's mentioned. Sure he's got a nice square jaw and he's a decent actor, but I think he's really too old for this role.

Also, you know what's kind of fun, at least for me a relative newbie on these boards? Going back through the casting threads and seeing the names mentioned. There are a few I agree with would've been good. And there are a few I... um, wouldn't. To put it mildly.

Remember all the celebrity names? Leonardo Dicaprio? lol

Also the number of wrestlers mentioned for Cap and Thor was just awful. John Cena? I remember one guy arguing that no one other than Triple H could ever convincingly play Thor. Hilarious.

I ever remember years ago thinking I could see Matt Damon or Daniel Craig as Cap. The thought of that now seems just so ridiculous. If it had gone that way, we would just be seeing Matt Damon or Daniel Craig or whatever big name, but when I look at Evans I don't see an actor, I just see Captain America. It's like everything Evans has done before this no longer matters because this is who he is now.

I don't remember much about the actors suggested for Cap except that the list was overwhelmingly awful. I was dumbfounded that more people didn't support Evans right off the bat considering what we could've gotten.

Krasinski probably could've acted the part but he never would've looked right and I shudder to think of all the Jim jokes we would've been subjected to.

Financially: No way in hell in a year with the last Harry Potter film, Transformers, and Pirates of the Carribean.

Critcally: Maybe, but I believe Harry Potter will end up being the best summer film.

I never understood the Valley love either. A guy in his 40s shouldn't be playing a young soldier. I just felt that all the people suggesting Valley really didn't know much about Captain America at all.

I remember when Krasinski's name was first brought up. I laughed my ass off (it was so funny I didn't want to acronym it). I made so many Jim jokes to my friends. And I remember this really good picture on here with Krasinski doing the "Jim Shrug" in the Captain America costume that was hilarious.

And everyone referring to Rock Sexton as Dwight was pretty funny too.

Definitely. I honestly could never see Damon, Craig, or DiCaprio in the role because those guys are bigger than the character. Chris Pine was a pipe dream but that really would've never happened.

Evans I had full belief that he could do a good job.

The Chris Evans hate never made sense to me. He is/was easily the best actor of all the candidates that were up for the role. He also has tons of charisma. Very talented actor.

Hopefully, after seeing a few more scenes of him in a proper trailer, I'll definitively be able to say:
Official: Chris Evans IS Captain America








Love how those women are checking out his bod.

Look at all the hate Henry Cavill is getting from some Superman fanboys. It's inevitable that even if the studio picks the actor best suited for the role, some fans are going to be pissed off because it's not the actor they wanted. I mean, think about it-- some people actually wanted John Cena as Captain America and Gnillew as Superman.

Waaaaaah???

There are people who hate Henry Cavill? He's gorgeous, charming and talented! Not the typical Supes choice, but once they announced him, I hopped on board.

Just... Does. Not. Compute.

Shame DC arent taking the same approach as Marvel and having their characters in the same universe. The prospect of Cavill, Bale and Reynolds sharing the screen as Supes, Bats and GL wouldve been interesting.

I think they're taking a wait and see stance. They want to see how Avengers performs before doing anything like that. And, in my opinion, I don't think Bale or Nolan would agree to do it, so they aren't going to commit them to it.
------------------------

As for any negative criticism towards Henry Cavill... there isn't any. There were a couple temper tantrums when the news broke out, but it's a very positive atmosphere in the Superman boards.

No, i'm pretty sure they've clearly said several times that they're not doing what Marvel is doing, and they're keeping each film separate to it's own world in order to maintain the respective tones of each comic.

DC is having a hard enough time making a decent movie from their characters anyway...once they get that down, then maybe in the future they can merge them...but for now it seems like they just need to get a handle on how to bring the characters on screen without losing losing a lot of source material.
