Well, looks like the rumors that I've been hearing are true, there are plans for an Avengers movie, along with solo movies for Thor and Captain America.

Of course, it was alluded to in the closing scenes for Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk; but I didn't realize that there was an entire website devoted to this promising movie franchise.

Looks like Thor has already been cast:

Chris Hemsworth - he plays Captain Kirk's father in the current Star Trek movie. Seems to be a pretty decent match for the God of Thunder.

Unfortunately, the only rumor that I've found for the casting of Captain America has Will Smith in the role. :blink: I'm hoping that one's not true.

No way it can be Will Smith!!! actually I'd prefer Paulie Shore over him.

My biggest problem with Will Smith is not that he's black, but that I haven't really seen any evidence that he can play anyone other than Will Smith in a movie. I want to see a Captain America movie, not just another big-budget Will Smith vehicle.

I'm just not a big Smith fan. Plus he just did a super hero flick. I would rather a new up and coming actor bring C.A. to life.

I think Channing Tatum would be a good choice for Captain America. He was recently in the MMA movie, Fighting, and plays Duke in the upcoming, inevitable-crapfest GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra. I'm just not sure if he has the screen presence or talent to play the leading role in a movie.

It's too bad Heath Ledger passed away, he would have been perfect for Captain America (aside from Matt, of course). :sad:

Tatum would be a good choice. But you're right not sure yet if he has the maturity to play him. That's a tough role to cast. Maybe there's new talent out there that will get and chance to prove himself.

As long as he doesn't speak with a British accent, then he would do fine.

Apparently Eva Longoria's getting in on the action:

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/herocomplex/2008/09/eva-longoira-as.html

Eva Longoria (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0519456/) of "Desperate Housewives (http://abc.go.com/primetime/desperate/index?pn=index)" fame was photographed leaving the L.A. offices of Marvel Studios clutching a business card and some comic books in her hand. The comic book on top? That would be a copy of the Avengers. The first thing that popped in my head when I heard this: She's going to be Thor!
No, no, just joking. The first thought is that she wants to be Janet Van Dyne, the winsome Wasp, a founding member of the Marvel super team and eventual wife of Hank Pym, the Ant-Man.
Longoria, at least judging by her prevailing gossip-page persona, does seem to have some of the Wasp's, um, entitlement attitude. Van Dyne was a flighty, sometimes conniving and always spoiled daughter of a wealthy scientist, and after his death she used her inheritance for world-class shopping sprees.
She pretty much had a new costume on every few pages in the comics. And in the early days, she sure was kidnapped a lot.
Her first appearance in "Tales to Astonish" No. 44 introduced her on the cover as "Ant-Man's gorgeous new partner-in-peril," but it could have been "smoking-hot sidekick in distress."
But more than a villain's trophy and a Manhattan social butterfly, the Wasp became an especially perceptive member of the Avengers and a key part of the team chemistry that made it less of a simple boy's club. As the years went on, she was increasingly portrayed as the savvy woman on the team who might have a makeup mirror in her hand but was also more intuitive then a lot of the lab-coat geniuses around her.
Van Dyne could be also pretty calculating, which raises another thought: If you look at these parking-garage photos of Longoria (http://community.livejournal.com/ohnotheydidnt/27804727.html), it sure does seem like the actress is flashing that comic book with a bit of purpose. I wonder if she is trying to stir up a bit of fan chatter that will help her lock in the role...
