Yeah, Evans is just magnificent in that role. Whoever saw him playing cocky, wise-guy characters like Johnny Storm and somehow knew he's be perfect for Captain America who is kind of the opposite of those characters is a casting genius.

Bart is correct. 

Peggy Carter is basically a top three MCU character by a country mile. 

 

That said, I'm not complaining about Evans per se. He's great. He's the best character in the MCU. 

 

But I'd be lying if I wasn't deeply curious to see what Kraz could do. 

 

Anyway, I'm seeing Lee Pace as Joe in Angels in America this spring.

I lost it at “Marvel Stud”.

Boy, that intro is long. Doesn't really hit you till you hear someone narrate all that's going on in it.

Why you wouldn't make a Jack Ryan show a Cold War period piece is beyond me. Looks generic as hell... On the other hand, Wendell Pierce. And John Krasinski was pretty good in "13 Hours".

 I watched Captain America TFA a couple of weeks ago. For as much as I like the cast and the story, the weak action scenes bring it down for me. When I saw the trailer I thought the scene of Cap and his men kicking open that door, guns blazing, was going to ne an awesome set piece. I'm still a tad bummed that was just a shot in a montage. WS and CW are still top tier Marvel.

A Black Widow Movie could be a great antidote to the sturm und drang of Thanos and everything around that. Finally bring back Julie Delpy for some flashbacks!

It's certainly interesting that they've hired a comedy writer for the Black Widow movie. I do hope it's not *too* much of a comedy. I don't need Black Widow: Ragnarok where the previously sensible Black Widow is knocking herself out with her own weapons and doing squeaky farts whilst she's sneaking past someone, or awful shit like that.

To be fair though they hired comedy directors to direct The Winter Soldier and that turned out alright for them.

Remember all the hub bub around that? You, Me, and Dupree?!!!?!
post #3361 of 3374

I wouldn't worry, Marvel movies end up having multiple writers. I'd expect a Black Widow to have a tone not unlike Winter Soldier, a movie that has its fair share of quips. But I'd also imagine the nature of the character would lend itself to a more straightforward John Wick/Atomic Blonde-esque actioneer (even if it won't be R-rated). 

 

I do wonder what a solo movie can mine in terms of source material. Her solo series over the years have mostly revolved the Red Room, and a new generation of Black Widows that threaten to replace Natasha. Perhaps in a turn that's for the best, she hasn't ended up being paired with her major romantic interests from the comic (Daredevil and Bucky), so a movie either wouldn't have to deal with romance at all or could introduce a whole new character for that.

I saw a trailer for "Red Sparrow" last night and was like, "Oh, this should be a Black Widow movie -- oop!"

I think seeing him in Sunshine was what put him on the shortlist. There's more than a little Cap in Mace.

post #3364 of 3374

Yeah, Mace was like a Steve Rogers without the obvious warmth/generosity.

 

But he was certainly all about the mission.

post #3365 of 3374
For Black Widow, I'd love to see it focus on her past coming back to haunt her. Doing flashbacks to when she was a Russian agent and some of her old missions. The story being someone from her past causes her to return to Russia and face them. Would make it more personal and her going alone would make more sense. For lack of a better comparison, something like Bourne Identity with her old bosses causing problems for her.

Wonderful!

post #3368 of 3374

WTF. Did they put Evans' face on Costner's body, or was he actually re-creating that scene?

post #3369 of 3374

I'm assuming some fan took an interview clip of Evans laughing and composited it onto Costner's steelman scene

post #3370 of 3374

I DONE BEEN FOOLED BY SEE-GEE-EYE!

Sunshine was the movie that sold me on Evans for Cap. Yeah, he is a bit cold in the film, but he has a strong presence and morality in the film. I saw some Steve Rogers in there. Sunshine is such a good film.

One of my favorites.

When I heard Evans was up for Cap, my mind immediately went back to the coolant scene in Sunshine. That
was such a great performance.

These movies don’t work unless Captain America works. And legitimate sincerity is a hard sell in troubled times like ours.
