Marvel Comments on Will Smith's "Captain America" Casting

Posted: September 10th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Marvel Comments on Will SmithSubmit Comment
Derek Luke (Miracle at St Anna) recently shocked comic book fans that Marvel has offered the part of "Captain America" to Will Smith. Many things seemed very wrong about that decision. Smith is not Caucasian and has recently played a superhero in "Hancock," plus Captain America is such a big name in the comic book world that many fans might not accept an actor who doesn't look the part.

Upon hearing Luke reveal the news, AICN immediately started contacting their many sources at Marvel and the response was the same. Luke has no idea what he's talking about.

Apparently, Marvel has never offered Smith the part, nor did they approach or entertain a conversation about him playing Captain America. So there you have it, the world makes sense again.

Hey Marvel!!!! Matthew McConaughey, case closed. Make it the Ultimate Universe's version with flashbacks looking & feeling like Private Ryan and we have ourselves a winner.

Seriously people!! Why cant her play Capt. America? So what if if Will Smith is black, he is one of ,if not the biggest box office mega star. It would be great, and people will see it, trust me. The script, direction and storytelling should be the draw not whether the actor is black or white, that like saying Angie Jolie shoulde be ( and rumored talks) Catwoman because she's white..Come on ....

there really isnt anything wrong with an african american playing cap...in fact, it would add a great twist to the whole saga...the us gov begins super soldier experiments, but doesnt want to experiment on white guys...so they pick a black dude...shades of the tuskegee experiment...but the prob with using smith is that he cant stop from doing his shuck and jive in movies like this...
