Matthew McConaughey Never Heard of Captain America

Posted: September 16th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Matthew McConaughey Never Heard of Captain AmericaSubmit Comment
Matthew McConaughey has been rumored to play Captain America in the upcoming Marvel film "The First Avenger: Captain America," but that's news to him.

Speaking to MTV News, McConaughey commented on the fact that fans have been interested in seeing him step into the role. "I was?" he asked, adding that he "wasn't a big comic book reader, but that's a super cool name Captain America."

This confirms that Marvel never approached McConaughey for the part and if they did, there is no guarantee that McConaughey would even accept, since his favorite character has always been The Hulk.

"My favorite one growing up has already been done twice and that was The Incredible Hulk," said McConaughey, who had fond memories of Lou Ferrigno's turn as the Green Goliath during the 1978-1982 television series.

"Lou Ferringo would come on, and it was an hour show, [so] you knew he was gonna turn green [and] get big, two times in that hour," he said. "So at 7:22 you knew he'd do it, and at 7:39 you knew hed do it so if you were going to go make a milkshake or something, you better be back by 7:22 or 7:39, 'cause he was about to turn green."

Look at the picture above, tell me that's not Captain America.

If this rumor was true, then the film would have to be called "Shirtless Captain America".

Matthew McConaughey is Steve Rogers (Captain America)! Marvel better not dropped the ball on this one. Spiderman, Iron Man & Hulk has had good character casting and I hope it continues with Matthew being grabbed for this role.

if i was matt, clothes wouldn't even be an option! he would be a bad-ass captain america. but for some reason i doubt it will happen... although i would love it. another face i think could work... don't laugh.. but Aaron Ekhart

i think he'd be a pretty good captain america. granted...there's probably other actors that would fit the role better, but matthew mcconaughey IS a badass, so it'd work.
