He didn't say anything bad about Cap in the 80s, so maybe they'll use Mark Gurenwald's characterization of him.

Captain Awesome for Captain America!
Ryan McPartlin (from the series Chuck) would seem to be one of the top rumored candidates for the role.
Yeah, I think he'd do well in the role.

I also thought Chris Hemsworth would have made an excellent Cap, but he's Thor now.

How about Chris Hemsworth's brother Liam?

Is Sam Worthington overexposed by now?

Nick Fury: Samuel L. Jackson
Has that been confirmed, though? There has been talk that Jackson might not come back as Fury.
He inked this deal nearly a year ago when Iron Man 2 was going into pre-production.
Samuel L. Jackson is Marvel's man.

The actor, who just weeks ago was seemingly on the outs with the studio over reprising his role as Nick Fury, agent of spy outfit S.H.I.E.L.D., has signed an unprecedented nine-picture deal to play the character in a series of Marvel movies.

The movies include "Iron Man 2," "Thor," "Captain America," "The Avengers" and its sequels.

Also on the table is the possibility of toplining a "S.H.I.E.L.D." movie, which is in development.
I think you just recall the talk of him not returning as Fury(for IM:2) and then *BAM* a few weeks later he signed the above deal. I tried a google search for 'Jackson out as Fury' and similar and the only articles that came up were the ones prior to him signing the 9 pic deal.

Sam is confirmed for sure.

It depends upon your definition of superpowers. IIRC, the serum gives him peak human physical abilities in all areas. Since they're still human abilities, maybe they're not technically "superpowers". OTOH, if someone gave me a serum that allowed me to run the 100 meter dash in 9 seconds, I'd consider that somewhat "super". Plus, yeah, I did hear that the serum gives him extra endurance and extra healing.
When Sharon Carter asked him how he dodges bullets, he replied that, "I can see faster", whatever that means.

Last I heard, SLJ has signed on to play Fury NINE times in the various Marvel movies.

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.

Meh. They're called actors for a reason.

I hope that whatever big manly teen-swoony heartthrob hunk of American man they get, they don't just cast another guy as his weakling version. I'd love to see Avatar-level effects work to transform him into a scrawny dweeb(and to enhance his muscular awesomeness later on). Allows a much wider range of actors to choose from too.

^ I'd imagine that's what they'll do. I mean, in Spider-man they were able to show Peter Parker as a scrawny teen in one shot, then toned and buff in pretty much the next. I'd imagine doing so now, almost a decade later, will be a piece of cake.

That was a far smaller difference. Just a matter of shooting him once early in the shoot and then again after a few months of working out and with some airbrushing, he was still skinny, just fit. Wimpy Steve's transformation into Captain America is 100x more drastic. Think Christian Bale in The Machinist vs. him in Batman Begins or American Psycho, but with more bulk.

It occurs to me to hope Steve will not 'hulk out' for his transformation. I'd prefer them thinking it a failure at first and then him eating like crazy as his body begins the transformation over the course of several days at least. That mass has to come from somewhere.
