    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.

    OH MY GOD John Krasinski is on the wish list?

    THEY HAVE TO CAST HIM!

    I love the idea! I really think he could portray a more upbeat good-natured Captain America. Especially if they ever do the fish-out-of-water story, he could EASILY handle playing a throwback to a "brighter America" Steve Rogers. One thing I love about this idea is that Krasinski's acting isn't "cynical" or "gritty" (well ok, Jim from the Office is kind of upbeat-cynical, but that's not the sort of cynical I'm talking about).

    I'm sure purists would hate it. I don't really care though, I want to see it happen!

    In the Avengers movie, I really want to see bits where Tony Stark returns to his den to find his suit inside a big bowl of jelly (jell-o for you Yanks), where Nick Fury is delivering a speech and Captain America is looking at the camera with his eyebrows raised and a 'can you believe this shit?' look on his face and where the Red Skull (played by Rainn Wilson) is walking about with a 'Kick Me' sign stuck on his back.

    And then Hank Pym kicks him? As Giant Man of course. Hmm come to think of it maybe Ant-Man would be funnier.

    Did they actually refer to THE WOLFMAN as THE WEREWOLF? If so, I'd mistrust any source that can't even get the title of Johnston's new movie right.

    (Seems to be a common problem, though. Our local morning radio deejays kept referring to it as THE WEREWOLF the other day. It was driving me nuts.)

    I really wonder if Marvel/Disney really would delay Cap... wouldn't that totally mess with all the Avengers stuff too?

    I hope this isn't true. Director Johnston had already started preparing The First Avenger: Captain America. The flop of The Wolfman shouldn't have any bearing on the commercial viabilty of the Captain America. They're just too different, IMHO.

    ^ Poor old Johnston came in late to the troubled production that was Wolfman and shouldn't have to carry the can for its inevitable failure (how many movies actually succeed in those circumstances?).

    Of course, there was a story recently that he briefly walked when Marvel threatened to reduce the budget and his salary, before recanting. This may just be the way that the notoriously miserly studio gets to hire a cheaper helmer.

    Deadline Hollywood reported that Johnston and Marvel have been having a bit of a rough ride in developing the film, with Johnston even briefly walking off the film over a budget dispute. If they put it on hold and find another director, the relative failure of The Wolfman may be an excuse they use, but it was probably brewing for awhile.

    If Captain America is postponed then the next shoe to drop will probably be a further delay of The Avengers to summer 2013. The Avengers is going to be such a big, complicated film that an extra year may be welcome in any event.

    I'd be fine with that. Jumanji is the only film of his that I've liked. It pisses me off that he's still blathering about doing a new Jurassic Park trilogy when he managed to take such an incredible concept and create such a subpar film out of it.

    I didn't care much for Jumanji, but I liked Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, The Rocketeer, and October Sky. Johnston's Jurassic Park III wasn't as good as the first film, but it was much better than The Lost World.

    ^ Different tastes, I suppose, as I much preferred the second (while acknowledging that it, too, wasn't as good as the first). I wasn't aware that Honey, I Shrunk the Kids was his, though--I liked that one too. Guess I would prefer he stick to children's/comedy.

    I actually prefered the third JURASSIC movie to the second one, too.

    Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark looks older and a whole lot more raggedy looking than I've envisioned the character, but that's just what happens in the transition between comics and live action - you get more human variation, which I like.
