Chris Evans Accepts Offer to Star as Captain America 2010-03-22 16:02:40

Chris Evans to Suit Up as Captain America

No role in 2010 so far has had more names attached to it than Captain America. Despite a healthy debate here about who should play the superhero, it appears Marvel has settled on an actor: Chris Evans. Evans agreed to a multiple-film deal to portray Steve Rogers and his alter ego.

Evans already showed off his powers as Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four, but Captain America is obviously higher profile — there's no ensemble here, just Evans in his stars and stripes. I, for one, am interested to see how Marvel works this franchise — so far one of the only details we know is that Hugo Weaving will play the nemesis — but if it's handled anything like Spider-Man, Evans better be ready for his star to explode.
