And Captain America to be played by.....
Leo DiCaprio or Brad Pitt??!! Actually, I can't think who I would want to play Capt. America....or Thor for that matter! from the Tipster:
If you're gonna dream, dream big, as Marvel Studios is reportedly doing with its wish list for its upcoming Captain America. According to Latino Review, the two names topping the studio's most wanted list as potential Cap'ns: Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt. DiCaprio, who earlier this week signed on to play Atari founder Nolan Bushnell in a biopic, seems unlikely to step up for the project, especially since he reportedly turned down the offer to play Spider-Man when that franchise launched, with DiCaprio pal Tobey Maguire, in 2002. Pitt, meanwhile, has been rumored for months to be the top choice for an adaptation of the Thor comics, but he's also, according to Latino Review, the number-two pick for Captain America. Both stars already have fully packed schedules, with DiCaprio also committed to Martin Scorsese's Teddy Roosevelt biopic, the thriller The Chancellor Manuscript and historical drama Freedom Within the Heart, while Pitt is attached to the Terrence Malick-directed sci-fi adventure Tree of Life, the boxing drama The Fighter and the Watergate drama Dirty Tricks.
