Rumor: Chris Evans Has Been Offered Captain America
We know, we know! We promised no more Captain America information until there was some actual, factual, real, Captain America information.
But this is kind of actual, factual, real Captain America information!
According to The Hollywood Reporter’s “sources,” Chris Evans has been formally offered the part of the first Avenger. This would entail starring in up to three Captain America movies, any Avengers movies, and certain cameos in other Marvel Universe movies.
Solid job! What’s the hold up? Well, Evans has already agreed to a role in What’s Your Number? a romantic comedy that beings filming this summer. This might cause scheduling conflicts with a Capt. shoot.
If you’re trying to remember where you know Chris Evans from, it’s because you probably do. He was the Human Torch in both ill-executed Fantastic Four movies. Playing the roles of two different Marvel heroes is unlikely, in this case, to cause conflict. I don’t think anyone would mind if they scrapped the current FF franchise and started over again.
