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.

      I completely agree with you…had this been 8-10 years ago. Yes he still looks the part. But he’s too old. They are starting at the begining, and Steve Rogers needs to be young. Early to mid-20s. I say this only because it’s a franchise. Had it been one solo movie with Cap in the present, I’m all for Jane.

        I have to agree that thomas Jane chose the wrong Super Hero. He was still way too clean cut as The Punisher no matter how much they tried to make him gritty.

          I dunno. I liked Ray Stevens, he definitely looks the part more. But Jane gave it a more human approach. He wasn’t this giant of a dude running around with an arsenal. He thought it through because it was personal. Also having it set during the day, in Florida didn’t help. Had it been set in NYC like “War Zone” and had all the crazy action, it would’ve been an awesome movie. Jane seems more the type to play Sgt. Rock though. I could definetly see him playing that part. He’d also be a better candidate for Johnny Blaze if you ask me.
