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.
Taika Waititi's voice-over of the marvel studios intro
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.
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.
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 think seeing him in Sunshine was what put him on the shortlist. There's more than a little Cap in Mace.
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.
