"The First Avenger: Captain America" set for 2011

Alright, true believers, we finally have a release date: May 6, 2011. Three long years, but it'll be worth if it they get the right cast and crew ... in the same way that Favreau and Downey Jr. collaborated to nail "Iron Man." If you saw Iron Man and stayed beyond the credits, you saw that Sam Jackson cameo'd as Nicky Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. and he teased the "Avenger Initiative." So we know that Ed Norton is in as The Hulk and that Downey Jr. is Iron Man ... but who will dawn the WWII uniform of Captain America and wake up in modern times?

Rumor is Matthew McCounaughey is up for the gig ... HELL NO. McCounaghey is frakkin' liberal hippie scum that once got arrested for being doped out of his mind, playing the bongo drums naked at his home in Austin, TX - no joke, Google it.

I recently saw "A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints" with Downey Jr. and Shia LaBouf. I really like the gritty performance of a young, tall, strong kid named Tatum Channing, who I understand is playing "Duke" in the GI Joe movie. Too bad the producers of GI Joe nabbed him first because I think his performance in "Saints" would've translated into a fractured hero like NY's Steve Rogers.

That's my take, True Believers.
