Chris Evans is Captain America
from Hollywood Wiretap:
Chris Evans has finally been selected to don the star-spangled superhero suit for "Captain America." After weeks of reports flying back and forth as to potential candidates, Marvel made an offer that Evans accepted last week. The deal, reports Variety, calls for the actor to star in at least three "Captain America" movies.
"The First Avenger: Captain America" is set to open on July 22, 2011. Paramount will distribute.
Evans would also reprise the role in "The Avengers," which will unite Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and the Incredible Hulk (Edward Norton) in one pic, notes Variety. That film is set for May 4, 2012.
Joe Johnston will direct "Captain America" from a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
*Ed Norton? Really? They're really gonna run with that? That would totally kill it for me....I hate Ed Norton, whiny bitch....and I really hate the Incredible Hulk. Damm. Might be a dealbreaker.*
