I'm surprised to see a few US posters suggesting Aussies (the Hemsworth boys, Worthington) for such an All-American hero. I would have thought you'd all be insistent he be played by a Yank? I don't often think that nationality is that important in casting but I can certainly understand why people would want Captain America played by someone with an American passport.
It's called acting for a reason.
Of course, there's also a major double standard because hellfire would reign upon us if an American were to play a Brit in Harry Potter or James Bond.
I don't know. Nobody complained when Robert Downey Jr. was cast as Sherlock Holmes . . . .
He's Robert Downey Jr. To complain would reveal your total insanity. Still imagine him being proposed for a Harry Potter
character. JK Rowling would have shit a brick
Or James Bond. (That would be the one case in which I'd actually watch a Bond flick.)
