He particularly can't be contemporized because the whole premise is that he's a man out of time; a guy who goes to sleep in 1945 and wakes up in ____ (as time goes by, the implications of this jump become vaster and vaster; there's a considerable difference between waking up in 1964 and waking up in 2008).
But either way, the contrast is interesting.

Yeah this is a false rumor. When is this movie suppose to come out anyway. It should be easy to cast Cap, he is a big blond white guy. Problem is he acts like someone from the Midwest but is from New York.

I think Marvel should have dropped the name years ago for the character, because they definitely dislike the name. I think the name is the only thing that has kept the character from being as popular as Superman, Batman, and Spider-man.

I think there are some ways to make a 'black' Captain America in the 1940s and make it true of the age and such.
But not true to the Steve Rogers Captain America.

2011.

No, that wouldn't work at all.

I thought the black Kingpin was atrocious.
Why? I thought Michael Clark Duncan was an inspired casting choice. He looks every inch like the Kingpin - except he's black. And since there's nothing intrinsic to the character that required he be white, there was no reason not to cast a black man.

Since Captain America Comics #1, Steve Rogers was always sickly and unfit for regular military duty.

Sure it would have worked. They just didn't do it. I know people that would love Steve Rogers, if he didn't have a big "A" on his head. Think about the people that typical read comics since the 60's. They are not people that have this great love for the USA, quite the opposite. The comic has addressed this time and again because they know it is a problem for the readers.

Re: Captain America movie rumor. And the role has been offered to...

I can accept certain people being white or black, like The Green Lantern would be a nice black character, but there are certain people you don't change. Batman is white. Superman is white. And I think, generally, anybody here would want Captain America white. Plus, do we really need another Will Smith hero movie every two years?

Under political correctness, all white superheroes can and should be open to any and all races. But a non-white superhero needs to stay true to the original race as created.

Hell, if Spawn were bigger, I'm sure there would've been cries of racism with D.B. Sweeney being cast as Terry Fitzgerald.

Re: Captain America movie rumor. And the role has been offered to...

i'm very wary of the way they're going to ewrite Cap myself.

For one thing, he's very patriotic and patriotism is hated by millions of people in America.

They hate the kind of patriotism that they think Cap exemplifies, the "U-S-A! Four more years of Bush!" sort; the actual character is a thoughtful Rooseveltian.

Will Smith is a good actor but he's not Cap. Not to mention the fact that a lot of his recent movies have been crap.

Will Smith rumored for "Captain America"

Here's the report:

It would be quite a coup for Marvel if they could get Smith - he virtually guarantees a big box office opening and broad appeal, even if the vehicle isn't everything it should be.
