Stanley Tucci Will Give Birth to Captain America

3 Comments

Marvel Studios has announced that Stanley Tucci has joined the cast of Joe Johnston’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”, and will be playing Dr. Abraham Erskine. In the comics, Erskine is a former German scientist who gives “birth” to the good Captain (to be played by Chris Evans) through the Project Rebirth experiment, the same process where Steve Rogers undergoes his Super Soldier transformation.

Tucci joins a cast that includes Evans as the Star Spangled Avenger, Sebastian Stan as his sidekick Bucky, Hugo Weaving as bad guy The Red Skull, and lovely British lass Hayley Atwell as lovely British lass Peggy Carter.

The film is currently shooting in London for a July 22, 2011 release.

    WOW is it me or is this cast turning out better than Iron Man. Seriously. This is a stellar cast. Then again Thor has a pretty nice cast too. They are stepping their game up. DC what you got? TDK was great and all but WHAT YOU GOT ON THESE?!? Green Lantern has an okay cast but it's not half of either one of these films.

    LOL!!! Yeah, DC like Jay Z said “show me what cha got”. I like Tucci, he's an actor that has a lot of range and emotion. Awesome cast!!!! We still have'nt even gotten who's gonna be the actors for The Invaders yet! So just imagine! I wonder how they're going handle that as far as what kinds of actors, A-listers or unknowns.
