Screen tests were held yesterday by Marvel Comics for an actor to play Steve Rogers, alter-ego of Captain America. The latest shortlist of contenders for the Joe Johnston-directed superhero movie are: John Krasinski, Michael Cassidy (Smallville), Patrick Flueger (The 4400 and Brothers), Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights), Mike Vogel (Cloverfield). Gossip Girl‘s Chace Crawford’s screentest is, as yet, unconfirmed. Jensen Ackles and Tron Legacy‘s Garrett Hedlund have been removed from the list due to scheduling conflicts, but Hedlund may be reinstated if that problem is solved.
Captain America is the story of a young guy who was rejected from enlisting in World War II by Uncle Sam, but who eventually becomes a member of the Avengers, Marvel’s superhero team.
Who do you think should be given the role?
