CAPTAIN AMERICA Has Been Cast!!! CHRIS EVANS Will Be THE FIRST AVENGER – HUGO WEAVING Cast As RED SKULLMarch 22, 2010
Chris Evans (“Fantastic Four” films) has accepted Marvel Studios’ offer for him to play Steve Rogers/Captain America in the Joe Johnston-directed The First Avenger: Captain America.
The deal calls for Evans to star in at least three “Captain America” movies, with the first hitting theaters on July 22, 2011.
He would reprise the role in The Avengers, which will united Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and the Incredible Hulk (Edward Norton) in one film. That film is scheduled for May 4, 2012. The character also will likely make cameo appearances in Marvel’s other films.
Hugo Weaving will play the villain Red Skull in THE FIRST AVENGER: CAPTAIN AMERICA.
Chris Evans played Johnny Storm (AKA The Human Torch) in the FOX produced (and completely forgetable) FANTASTIC FOUR movies from a few years ago.
