Now I get this news:
Chris Evans will play Steve Rogers, also known as Captain America.
Sources tell us the actor has not only accepted Marvel's offer, first detailed on Friday, but that the dealmaking moved so fast it's now all about dotting the i's and crossing the t's.
Evans, if you recall, played Johnny Flame in the shitfests that were the two "Fantastic Four" adaptations from Marvel. Ugh. Still, with Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, I'm going to hold off judgement on the Avengers adaptation until I see it.
