Leonardo DiCaprio as Captain America? Hell, Why Not.

To be honest with you, these “[Insert A-List Actor Name Here] to play [Insert Iconic Comic Book Character Here]” rumors get floated around the Internet more often than Paris Hilton drops to her knees during Fleet Week. Got a rumor you want to float? Just go ahead and do it, and credit it to an unnamed source in a movie studio somewhere. Shit, that’s what everyone else does, and I should probably start doing it, too. It’ll make me look important and crap without me having to actually do anything to be important like, you know, actually succeed in stuff. But I digress. The latest A-Lister rumored for an Iconic superhero role? Leonardo DiCaprio as Captain America.

Latino Review are the floaters this week. Here’s their reasoning (or lack thereof):

Well, speaking of CAPTAIN AMERICA, I have myself a trusted source internally over at Marvel and they are now starting to toss names for the role of Steve Rogers.

The name at the top of the list?

LEONARDO DICAPRIO

See what I mean? Make a post, throw out some unnamed source at a studio, and voila, you got yourself an exclusive inside scoop.

Now I’m not saying the boys over at LR are wrong; more often than not they seem to have their pulse on that part of Hollywood that still has a pulse (you know, down there), but this is still the Interwebs, and you know, there’s a reason people who get paid to think of letters to put in newspapers mock us. With justification, too. We just don’t shower all that often.

Anyhow. Leonardo Dicaprio is rumored to be on the top of Marvel’s list for Captain America. Second is Brad Pitt, who was also rumored to be on Marvel’s top list for Thor. Basically, Marvel’s got a hard-on for Brad Pitt, and who can blame them? The dude is, like, Godly and shit.

Leonardo DiCaprio is Captain America?

    Pitt is in his mid-forties, whereas DiCaprio is in his late twenties/early thirties, but still looks young. I’d have to vote for Leo, although I have nothing against Pitt. Yet, I was just warming up to the idea of McConaughey as Cap…

      It has come to the attention of other comic fans aswell as myself that not one of these actors;as talented as the maybe. Do Not fit the physical description of Captain America…My suggestion for the Captain America role would have to be Gunther Schlierkamp from BEERFEST none of you can argue that he’s not an ideal physical specimen for this role and I’m fairly convinced the former Mr. Universe is up to the acting task….However for the role of Steve Summers pre-super soldier serum Leo would ideal……but this is just the agreed ideal of a few TRUE DIE-HARD COMIC FANS!!

    Why must they always look for the most annoying actors to play the roles?

    I wish leo and brad will shove it.

    Pick someone who suits the character. Stop trying to boost sales by getting a big name – that sucks.
