Chris Evans is Captain America

And the Red-White-&-Blue goes to...
It seemed like it was already a done deal when Chris Evans was offered the role of Captain America. And as easily expected, Chris Evans has accepted, and is now officially the man who would take on the role of Captain America for the upcoming movie adaptation of the Marvel comicbook character. There has been a really long process of choosing who will be right for the role; a role for a nine-picture deal because the role would make its presence not only in Captain America movies, but in the Avenger movie, as well as other Marvel universe-related movies. The villain for this movie has also been announced and it will be the Red Skull (of course) and will be played by Hugo Weaving (see earlier news).

Chris Evans has been known to have played Johnny Storm in the "Fantastic Four" movies, and he was last seen in the not-so-successful super-power action movie "Push", but it is in movies such as "Sunshine" that Chris Evans show a more serious acting side of him. The movie will be entitled "The First Avenger: Captain America" and will be directed by Jo Johnston (Rocketeer, Wolf Man 2010). This movie will be due for release on July 22, 2011.
