#2 Posted by danhimself (22713 posts) - - Show Bio

Not bad....if Paul Walker beefed up he would be good too!

#4 Posted by pixelized (62883 posts) - - Show Bio

#5 Posted by pixelized (62883 posts) - - Show Bio

Paul walker cant act. have you seen fast and the furious...he's so dead

#6 Posted by Ebony Bishop (748 posts) - - Show Bio

If he can reign in the accent, it could work. I just can't hear Cap as a good ol' boy...

"Hey y'all. Avengers done assemble!"

.......................hmmmm.....who?

#8 Posted by Alexander Anderson (4030 posts) - - Show Bio

No. Just no. I'd rather have a complete unknown in the role than a goofus like Matthew McConaughey.

Amen to that. He's too dorky or something.

I'm going out on a limb and I'm going to suggest Brad Pitt.

I'd pick Jason Lewis, I think he could do a good job with it, but I think McConaughey would be fine.

#16 Posted by pixelized (62883 posts) - - Show Bio

I agree slinger

#17 Posted by Renegade Lantern (7285 posts) - - Show Bio

Tahmoh Penikett (Helo from Battlestar Galactica)

If he dyes his hair blond he would be good!

ugh I dunno if McConaughey would make a good Cap.

#22 Posted by Echoes (154 posts) - - Show Bio

Oh god....god...no.

Lets hope he proves us wrong like Robert did.

i really don't want matthew mcconaughey anywhere near a comic book film...i was watching the movie pathfinder today and the guy, i can't remember his name, who played the lead in it might be a good cap

#24 Posted by King Saturn (225088 posts) - - Show Bio

Matthew McConaughey could work as Captain America. I could see it happening. If the casting crew is anything like the casting crew they had for Iron Man, I would completely support this decision.

#25 Posted by Ebony Bishop (748 posts) - - Show Bio

The guy in Pathfinder is Karl Urban -- but I think he looks a little too crazy to play Cap.

#26 Posted by Irving Forbush (37 posts) - - Show Bio

Karl Urban for Thor, natch XD

mcconaughey is the stoner, slacker type. that's pretty much the opposite of captain america. plus, i dont think people realize how difficult it's going to be to pull this movie off. there is absolutely no room for error with a pro-america, story-line-in-the-1940s, nice-guy-with-no-super-powers, movie. it has to be flawless, and if it is, i think it could be marvel's crown jewel. that said, there needs to be a real actor in there to somehow make those corny lines work. there is no proof that mcconaughey can act, given the movies he's been in. and i think pitt is an interesting choice. troy, fight club, meet joe black, legends of the fall? say what you want about him, but he can act, and even though he's pushing 50, he can still look the part too.

Apparently there's a poll going on in which John Cena will play Captain America. Friend of mine told me, but I hope to God he's just being a douche.

McConaughey as Captain America would make me laugh for 20 minutes, until I realize that the film is serious, in which I would cry and possibly cut at my own face for the remainder of the film. John Cena, no. The Calvin Klein guy, no. Brad Pitt? Possibly. But, I dunno. Maybe the guy in Thank you for Smoking, if he really, really...REALLY beefed up.

they haven't cast anyone yet all that has been said is that the producers would like brad pitt as thor, nothing is set in stone yet

#46 Posted by danhimself (22713 posts) - - Show Bio

here is the article from ign on pitt as thor:

While it looks like Marvel Studios' big screen version of Thor is in need of a new director, the rumor mill suggests the studio is nevertheless moving ahead with casting and is mulling a certain A-list star to play their god of thunder.

According to Latino Review, Marvel is eyeing none other than Brad Pitt to play Thor. Pitt's no stranger to playing ancient armored heroes, having previously portrayed Achilles in Wolfgang Petersen's Troy.

The site points out that "no offer has been made to Pitt yet," but that he's high up on their wish list.
