i still can't get over the guns, i thought Captain america was a hero that stood for peace and freedom although he was a war hero. I just can't look at him the same way and on top of that they have Chris Evans A.K.A. the Human torch playing as the Captain. Won't that throw off the Fantastic Four series of movies? Why couldn't they get a G.I. Joe actor or maybe even the Avatar actor, why Chris instead of them? Can some one answer me this?
Well personally I don't see any problem with him having played Human Torch (especially since Fantastic Four is getting rebooted anyway), to me it's no different than Anthony Hopkins as both Hannibal Lector and Odin. They're just different roles in different films.
And from what I remember reading in interviews they chose Chris because they felt he had the strongest values and ideals and character that fit Cap. They said he felt like he fit the character from the first moment of the audition.
And personally I'm glad they didn't fo with anyone from GI Joe or Avatar, in both I found all the actors played their characters rather blandly. Though that could be more representative of the script or direction rather than acting skill.
