Nic Cage is an unabashed Marvel fan. Hell his real last name isn't even Cage its Copolla. He took the last name Cage because he liked the character Luke Cage

Back when they were thinking of doing a Batman Beyond movie, Nic Cage was considered for the role of Blight. Some folks even used color altered footage of him as Ghost Rider for Blight.

I'm all for Hugo Weaving. The man is a great actor and they are casting actors not the latest up and comer. Weaving knows how to bring a charcter through the make up. Skull will have a heavy dose of that. Weaving made V in V for Vendetta as realized and engaging a character as any I've seen the last 10yrs and we didn't see his face once. Him as Red Skull sounds like a good choice if it happens.

They've offered the role to Channing Tatum?

Here's the original DHD story.

There are so many rumours going around at this point that I'm not going to bother too much until there's an actual casting announcement.

Aaaauuggh! Now I feel bad for joking about it (because I didn't think it would ever happen).

Of their remaining contenders, I like Evans the best. Please let this Tatum rumor be just that...

Well the "John Krasinski has been offered the role" story didn't come true, so one can only hope. He looks the part even if he can't act worth a damn, and looking the part is what a lot of people here only seem to care about. Of course, I can't see Robert Downey Jr. and Edward Norton taking orders from him.

It really depends on the tone of the movie how much a bad actor will be noticed. As I recall, Tatum didn't suck all that badly in comparison to most of G.I.JOE. Even Joseph Gordon-Levitt couldn't rise above the suck of that one.

Really? G.I. Joe is the movie I would use to show how bad he is.

The only movie ive seen that Channing Tatum was decent in was A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints with RDJ, though they never played opposite of each other. I really hope that rumor is false, why not give somebody else a shot, him and John Cena are interchangable

Don't get me wrong, he is far far from my first, second or fifth choice.

Here's the original DHD story.
Nothing in those links indicate that Tatum is being offered the role. It only mentions he is among the candidates.

Lets back up and take a deep breath.
Could he end up in the role, well yeah, now that he is in the running but it could be any of about 4-6 guys still.

Tatum is just the latest name in the mix.

Frankly I found the DHD piece mentioning the actresses they've approached for the female lead most interesting as that is the first we've heard of the leading lady role.
Marvel Studios is also testing leads for the female role of Peggy. While Marvel is looking for an American actor to play Captain America, the candidates for the female lead are British. So far, Keira Knightley, Alice Eve and Emily Blunt are under consideration. Blunt is known to be a favorite of Marvel brass She was offered the role of Black Widow in Iron Man 2...
Peggy Carter - wartime love interest of Cap. No Wiki page exists on her so here are snipits from her nieces page Sharon Carter aka Agent 13, Caps modern day love interest.
In original continuity, Sharon was said to be the younger sister of Captain America's wartime love interest, Peggy Carter, but due to the unaging nature of comic book characters, she was later retconned as Peggy's niece. She grew up with the stories of her aunt, Margaret "Peggy" Carter, who was a freedom fighter with the French Resistance during World War II. During this time, Peggy worked alongside Steve Rogers, the patriotic hero known as Captain America, on several occasions. The two fell in love despite Rogers never finding out her name, but were separated in the closing weeks of the war. They did not find each other again before Rogers was thought dead, lost in the freezing waters of the North Atlantic.

They'll have to make her the great-niece of Peggy soon for her to still be in her 30s.

Alice Eve is the bombshell in She's Out Of My League. Fans won't complain if she gets the role.
