Captain America: Marvel to cast Leo?!
Rumour is that Marvel want to cast Leonardo Dicaprio as Captain America. The reason for their insanity isn’t clear, but the good people over at i09 have come up with a few other options if Leonardo is too busy…
Why He Bleeds Red White And Blue: The Bourne Identity has some of the best little hand-to-hand quickie action scenes of today’s action movies. He’s proven he can be tough and carry an action film on his shoulders. Damon would treat this character in a serious manner, but still make it a butt-kicking superhero movie.
Where He Will Fail: I see no down side to this casting. I don’t know, too perfect for the part?
Dwayne Johnson (The Rock):
Why He Bleeds Red, White And Blue: Everything about this man scream American Superhero. He’s big, he’s strong, he’s charismatic, in Walking Tall he cleaned up the dirty city streets with a big stick.
Where He Will Fail: He’s just a terrible, terrible actor when he has to be funny. So as long as this movie is devoid of jokes, or if we can just have Tony Stark dancing around making fun of him, it will be perfect.
Why He Bleeds Red White And Blue: He’s got the moves from Blade 3 to beat the bad guys. Plus he’s charming and witty enough to even make the costume work (although I’m sure they’ll change it).
Where He Will Fail: He may be too smart, too funny and too good looking for this character.
Why He Bleeds Red White And Blue: Loves America. He’s saved it tons of times in other movies so this wouldn’t be that bad of a stretch.
Where He Will Fail: Time. Sorry but the Capn’ doesn’t have a beer belly.
Also the rumors suggest that Brad Pitt is also a favorite for the part, but isn’t he a favorite for every movie now? His name gets tossed around so easily it’s hard for me to take it seriously. Besides didn’t they want him for Thor anyways?
