    So, I've heard that a director announcement is due any day now. I'm thinking there will be something big about it at the ComicCon... So who do you think should strap on the shield? Here are some of the names being thrown around...

    [​IMG]

    Paul Walker... good choice... for me to poop on.

    [​IMG]

    Aaron Eckhart... not bad.

    [​IMG]

    Ryan Phillipe... if so, Hollywood must burn!

    [​IMG]

    Pitt is too old.

    [​IMG]

    The best actor of the bunch. May be wishful thinking, tho.

    This Mark Valley guy is getting buzz, too, but I don't know anything about him. I think he's on that Boston Legal show.

    Viggo Mortensen... Hmmm...



    And, of course, all the wrestling marks are screaming John Cena. Yeah. O.k.

    Summer 09.

    As long as they keep making bank at the b.o., they'll keep pumping 'em out.

    Got Dark Knight, Iron Man, and Incredible Hulk next summer. I'm not sure when Watchmen comes out.

    Superman 2, Captain America, and maybe a Thor movie 09.

    I think Aaron Eckheart as Captain America would be really neat. He's got that patriotic chin.

    I kind of wish they'd do what the Superman movies did when they cast Christopher Reeve, a good unknown actor, I"m kind of sick of seeing the same few hundred celebrities get mentioned for every part.

    That's who I was thinking of. Seems like he could really pull off that WWII-era patriotic look.

    Matt Damon or Aaron Eckhart could do it IMO. But Ryan Phillippe? Smeone needs a kicking for suggesting that.

    Eckhart is a nice choice, but with him playing Harvey Dent/Two-Face for the new Batman series I doubt they'd use him as Cap. Damon has Star Trek coming up. Mark Valley I don't know, but he does have a good strong Cap chin as well. The rest of that list just goes from bad to oh sweet lord NO, I'd rather watch Clooney play Batman again (and nothing is worse than that).

    Mark Valley's been playing an ex-marine for the past few years, so he's got that going for him.

    Aaron Eckhart would be a solid choice, but HE might not want to do it given he is already doing Batman, and if they get going on part 3, he may well be tied into THAT.

    Mark Valley and Viggo are also solid choices, I would go with Mark Valley since if Viggo would do it, there would be the endless comparisons to Aragon. And it's really hard to top LotR in geekdom.
    Mark Valley, being a relatively unknown TV actor, might jump at such a high profile project and being lesser known= less $$$ in signing him and contracting him for sequel(s)= More money for effects and set pieces.
    See Transformers on how little known stars and b-level stars can help offset high effects costs, similarly, one only needs to look at the bloated carcasses of Superman Returns and Spider-Man 3 to see what can happen when you get high cost stars with high effects.

    I also hope for an unknown, but Eckhart is a pretty good choice.
