    --------------------------------------------------------

    After seeing NC"s review of the 90's film, who do you think could can redo Captain America's image on the big screen?

    To me, I say the main star of the "Hurt Locker": Jeremy Renner.


    What do you think?

    Other guys I considered was Guy Pierce, Nathan Fillion, Mark Wahlberg, or Matt Damon, not Leonardo Dicapirio

    Nathan Fillion or GTFO


    I might be ok with a Chris Pine type.

    Aaron Eckhart. TDK showed that he can flawlessly do the all American hero, he's a terrific actor and appearance wise he's also perfect. He even has the cleft in his chin! Just beef him up and he'd be the perfect choice.

    I think Aaron Eckhart looks a bit too old for the part. That's just me though.

    Jensen Ackles is currently rumored to be playing the role. I'm not sure how I feel about that yet.

    I think Brad Pitt could make for a pretty good Cap. Question is if he'd actually be interested in doing it.

    I thought Matt Damon too. Probably because of his rolls in the Born movies.

    Nathan Fillion would be really interesting. I'd actually really like to see him take on the roll just to see how it would turn out.

    I remember back in the 90s I thought Val Kilmer could play a pretty good Captain America. Especially after he did Batman forever.
    These days though....Eeeeh not so much.

    Brad Pitt is another one who has grown too old for this role. I honestly believe for an Avengers movie, Bradd pitt would make a good Clint Barton aka Hawkeye.

    Matt Damon doesn't have a voice that I would want to follow as a "leader" from any of the roles I've seen him take on in any of his films, just my opinon on why I wouldn't want him as Captain America.

    I've seen people mention Eckhart and Valley before, and I think they would have been perfect for Cap...... 15 years ago.

    I think they will probably go with an unknown to keep cost down since they would have to come back for Avengers.

    I can see Jensen Ackles definitely looking the part if they beef him up right. I just don't think I can take a former Day's of Our Lives actor seriously as Cap, lol.

    You know you're right, that actually would be a better choice.

    You guys need to see The Hurt Locker why I think Mr. Renner would be perfect. The character he play is sort of Captain America-ish.

    I actually looked up many top male actors, trying to put the person in Captain America's place, and Matt Damon is the only one that could pull it off today.

    Am I the only one who hears a whiny kind of voice in Matt Damon? Looking the part is one thing, but can he sound the part?

    I'm pretty sure he could pull it off. You did see the Bourne Trilogy, yes? I don't think anyone would call him a whiney kid in those movies. Serious and to the point, gets the job done, with no fucking around!

    BooYAHHHHHHHH! :rock 
    I still vote Matt Damon for CA. He's proven himself 100% in the Bourne movies.
