After months of speculations and searches, it seems that the studios have settled their caps at Chris Evans to play the role of Captain America in the upcoming movie The First Avenger: Captain America
It had already been reported last friday that the role had been offered to the actor but that he had previous movie commitments that stopped him from accepting the role right away.
It now seems that things moved swiftly over the weekend and that all that remains is signing the deal.
Chris is no stranger to the role of Marvel superhero since he played Johnny Storm, A.K.A the Human Torch in the two Fantastic Four movies.
Though I had hoped to either see Supernatural's Jensen Ackles or Chuck's own Captain Awesome, actor Ryan McPartlin, in the role of Steve Rogers, I am perfectly comfortable with the idea of seeing Evans play The First Avenger. As of now Marvel Studios has not let us down.
What do you guys think of that casting decision? Is Chris Evans fit to wield ol' Captain's Shield?
