My mom thought SMALLVILLE was about "little people." Really.
That actually sounds like it would be better than the show.

Casting for these films has been good so far, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt; it'd hardly be the first time that an actor has surprised fans.

I always thought Mark Valley would make a good Cap.

Too bad Mark Valley is 45 -- jmo, but I think he'd make a good Cap. (I know some people feel he's really wooden in terms of acting but I disagree.)

(After I saw STAR TREK, Chris Hemsworth was my pick for Cap. I was a little disappointed when they cast him as Thor instead. Glad he's in the franchise, though, even if it's not the role I thought he was perfect for.)

You know, the more I think about it, the more I think Krasinski could make a decent offbeat Cap, in the same way that RDJ made a great Iron Man.

He's tall enough and could bulk up the way so many actors have managed (Bale, DeNiro in Cape Fear, Ralph Fiennes in Red Dragon) - shooting doesn't start for 5 months. In Leatherheads, he seemed to be convincing as someone from the 1930s (which is what Steve Rogers is). He has a goofy quality which the pre-serum Rogers could well have. ANd he has all-American charm and likeability.

I think I'd rather see him than the square-jawed identikit blond male model types also up for the role.

I just can't picture John Krasinski as Captain America. Maybe I've watched too many episodes of The Office, where he plays a completely unthreatening good guy. He was also the completely unthreatening good guy in It's Complicated, which I did enjoy two months ago. Haven't seen Leatherheads or anything else that he's done.

^ I couldn't either initially but the more I thought about it ... I'm not saying he'd be my ideal choice or looks like the comic character come to life. I just think it might be one of those weird left-field decisions that works out somehow.

It's worth remembering that, originally, Steve Rogers was a gawky young kid anxious to get into the Army. And he wasn't really a "Captain." His secret identity was Private Steve Rogers, who was usually on KP duty, peeling potatoes, when he wasn't sneaking away to singlehandedly fight the Nazi horde . . . so, yeah, he should be a young kid in late teens or early twenties.

Cap didn't start out as the ageless Living Legend of modern-day AVENGERS comics. In the movie, he's going to have to learn to be the Captain America we see today, sixty years later.

It's going to be a little weird, though, seeing a young Cap alongside a much older Iron Man in The Avengers.

That's going to be tricky, I admit. I guess Cap is going to have to be portrayed as mature beyond his years.

A few years of combat in WWII should do the trick . . . .

Yeah, I'm not ruling him out. There must be a reason someone so unlikely has survived to this point in the audition process.

That would be fun! Cap would technically be much older than Tony Stark and the rest of them.

Cap when he came out of ice was probably younger than Stark. He was at most 24 to 25 while Stark was 30 to 40

That may technically be the case, but in all practicality they look like they're about the same age (excluding Cap's years on ice) in the comics.

I dunno, Tony's 'stache adds a few years.
