Has Captain America Finally Been Cast?
The most likely choice in the running for the role was Star Trek’s Chris Pine but unfortunately it’s still uncast.
Or is it? The new name that’s entered the arena is One Tree Hill star Robert Buckley, who is still a relative unknown. Of course this is still speculative but it’s all according to a rumour that was posted on ComicBookMovie.com which has now been removed.
Sometimes the hiring of an unknown can do wonders (Star Trek) and sometimes it just fails (Superman Returns), and really being only known to teenage girls right now, Buckley could be in a good position to steal the role.
But it’s not the casting we’re worried about, The Wolfman’s Joe Johnston is directing and we all know how troubled that production was. The script is in the hands of Narnia writers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus so it’ll have a good grip on fantasy at least.
Oh and for those of you who aren’t familiar with Robert Buckley, here’s a picture for your gratuitous viewing pleasure.
