Captain America to be cast soon, maybe by Valentines Day
The First Avenger: Captain America director Joe Johnston told SCI FI Wire that they'll have their Captain America very soon:
"We need to cast it soon," Johnston said. "We have a very short list, but we're still juggling actors here. I'd say within the next couple of weeks we'll have ourselves a Captain America, I hope."
He added that the movie is expected to start shooting at the end of June. He said, "We're getting ready to go to the U.K., it looks like." You can read more of the interview here!
The First Avenger: Captain America is scheduled for a July 22, 2011 release.
O-dogg's take: I've said it before, I'll say it again. Marvel needs to cast a good actor, hopefully a young actor in his 20s, and lastly it'd be nice to have an American actor. I'd be happy with someone like Sam Worthington, star of Terminator Salvation and Avatar. He's not American, but he fits the bill otherwise.
