Future Musings: Leonardo DiCaprio wanted for Captain America?

leave a comment »

FirstShowing.net has fueled the hype for Marvel’s future movie slate by posting about rumors that the studio is gunning to get Leonardo DiCaprio to step into the shoes of Captain America for the still-far-out 2011 tentpole, The First Avenger: Captain America.

Honestly, I think he’s a good fit for the role, if it’s true.  It’s going to be interesting to see who Marvel picks, because the hype is already building after all the hints and winks The Incredible Hulk threw out for the film. There’s even rumors that he was cut out of The Incredible Hulk…or was at least supposed to show up in some capacity.

SPOILER ALERT

He never does show up….they just mention the serum, and a little nod to World War II when they first tested it on a soldier….Heck, they even refer to Tim Roth as a “super soldier”, which is exactly what they called the Captain America prototype before he took the Captain America name.

END SPOILERS

I’m a sucker for comic book movies, and I’m glad Marvel is self-containing and interweaving all of their movies.  It’s a good step toward making them their own films….I just hope Captain America can compare to Iron Man, because no other summer movie has lived up to the hype like it did…

Let the speculation run wild until whenever Marvel finds their next big star….I’m already psyched!
