Disney/Marvel The First Avenger: Captain America Leading Role

The Marvel Studios March deadline is quickly approaching for casting of the lead role in The First Avenger: Captain America Movie. It looks like it is down to 6 actors.

Out of all the articles that is floating around the interwebs the guys at Film School Rejects seem to have the best coverage along with a breakdown of the actors and where you have seen them before.

Director Joe Johnston is on a tight schedule at this point when it comes to the casting of the title role in his next movie, The First Avenger: Captain America. Previous reports have stated that he and the folks at MarvelDisney/Marvel The First Avenger: Captain America Leading Role Studios plan to have the role filled by the first of March, with is about a week away at this point. So it makes sense that today we’re seeing the first inklings of casting news from Mike Fleming at Deadline. He’s scored the studio’s short list that includes the names of six actors that Johnston would like to have test for the role.

Some facts though, before I dig into this list and bring down the thunder of my always insightful commentary. Fleming is reporting that the studio is dealing shrewdly with all of these actors, offering a meager $300,000 for the first movie and forcing them into a 9-picture deal that would include sequels, appearances in other Marvel movies and of course, The Avengers. This is great for the studio, and their ability to keep continuity with their Avengers characters, but isn’t quite so awesome for the actors. Then again, they will get paid to play Captain AmericaDisney/Marvel The First Avenger: Captain America Leading Role. They’ll get over it, I’m sure.

Now, on to the list. It is more than full of surprises.
