Captain America Ready To Roll Without A Cast And Good Green Lantern News

26 Comments

According to the fine fellas over at Fangoria, principal photography for the as yet un-casted “Captain America” is set to roll in June of 2010. That’s pretty soon. No casting news yet. Will it be Sam Worthington? He’s in everything else. Why not? I’m thinking the good Captain is going to have to be pretty buff so 6 months is going to have to be enough time for someone to get in fighting trim.

In other superhero news, the production team is in place for “Green Lantern” starring Ryan Reynolds. These guys are good so I’m hoping the Green won’t be another Wolverine. Thanks /Film for the bullets.

  • Cinematographer Dion Beebe (Memoirs of a Geisha, Chicago, Equilibrium, Collateral)
  • Production designer Grant Major and costume designer Ngila Dickson (Lord of the Rings trilogy)
  • Art director François Audouy (Avatar, I Am Legend, Watchmen, Transformers, the Spider-Man” trilogy)

Endy is a slightly mangy and gristly citizen of the Great White North. He loves movies big time. How big? In Canada, back in the old days in the ice city where he lived, there would just be one theatre that would be allowed to show any given movie. Some of these theatres were not the giganto-plex or mall theatres that we know and love today. No no, these were the kind of theatres where you had to wait Outside to see a movie. When a big moving picture would open in these single theatres, beaver pelt sporting fellas like Endy would have to wait outside in line for hours while fighting off the human hankering giant Polar Bear or packs of Endy knawing timber wolves. Endy is a dedicated movie watcher. Otherwise, Endy loves him a good Moose jerky, football teams with manly names like the Steelers or Vikings and the thawing embrace of his fine German woman. All these things are good. But you know what is best.

    Crew for GL gives me hope. Captain AMerica needs to hurry up and start casting. I really think they should just find a newbie.

    I’d like to see Ryan Mcpartlin get the role of Steve Rogers”Captain America”. Let Sam Worthington get the role as the new “Flash Gordon” but I say hell no to him playing Captain America.

    Ryan McPartlin is an actor in that show Chuck I think. He would be an interesting pick. Not sure he could pull it off, but damn if he doesn’t look the part. Seeing him though makes me want to throw Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, Wedding Crashers) back in the mix. I think Brad is the next big thing. It blows my mind that he hasn’t already landed the gig, even though his story about the Green Lantern tryouts was amazingly funny.

      TSTI is right! Dedpool! Look this guy Ryan Mcpartlin up! He totally looks & and sounds right for the part and does have the acting chops plus I can totally see him having awesome chemistry with Robert Downey Jr. in the Avengers. I think Bradley Cooper is a cool actor he seems like a really cool to down a few beers and bag some chicks with.

        Really? I will do this later today when I get the chance? Cooper shoulda got Hal over Ryan. He looks the part more. Ruggedly hansome and not just pretty boy sexy. Plus he has a stronger jaw line. He’d be decent as Cap I guess.

    JON HAMM should be Captain A!! In my opinion the dude is the perfect fit. Pretty well known dude who can really act. Tall with the right body frame so he wouldn’t need to buff up that much. Perfect facial features for Cap-A!! Apparently he was rumored for the role back at the begining of the year..I hope they snag him!
