But we though John Krasinski had it in the bag!

Sources have confirmed that Ryan Phillippe is the latest actor to be considered for the lead role in The First Avenger: Captain America.

Hugo Weaving has been cast as the villain Red Skull and JKras has reportedly shot a screen test with other Marvel Universe actors, but no deal has been made as of yet.

    Honestly, I don't even like Ryan Phillipe. But I do think he would be the better choice for Captain America. Don't ask me why though.

  2. 2

    He would be soooooooo much better suited for that role! BLonde hair blue eyes!!!!

  3. 3

    Ryan for sure. The other dude isn't even hot.

  4. 4

    eeew no …

    Team John!

  5. 5

    He looks like Captain America, just not sure he is. Not convinced he would be convincing.

  6. 6

    Oh gosh he's hot. Oh yeah. Him and Reese were the perfect couple. Young and georgous alike.

  7. 7

    John Krasinski for sureeee

  8. 8

    no way!! John all the way!!!

  9. 9

    no i want Krasinski :( he's so daper and sexy.

    nah, John KRasinski is perfect for this role

  12. 12

    Team John. Ryan's too short and effeminate looking, you just want to smack his smug little girl face.

  13. 13

    no no no i do not like ryan at all. john for sure.

  14. 14

    He definitely fits the part. And he's way better looking than John. Plus John to me is more of a comedic actor. I know (the other) Ryan Reynolds makes a good superhero being a funny man himself but Ryan R is super hot. John isnt. Ryan P gets my vote.

    neither of them would be good, but Office Jim would be horrible

  16. 16

    Think that Ryan fits the bill better, John is cute and all - just a bit too goofy for a superhero

  17. 17

    the guy from sparticus whats his name?….should be captain america..Jai?

    I want John. I can't stand Ryan. Which means, it will probably be Ryan.

  20. 20

    No! John should be!

  21. 21

    Please…anyone but Krasinski!!!!!!!

  22. 22

    RYAN!!!!!!!!!!!! All the way! John is NOT superhero material.
    Sorry- don't quit your 'office' job John.

  23. 23

    John - Ryan is a horrible actor and he has a weird muffled weird voice. :(

  24. 24

    Ryan will always have that cheater stigma associated to him…NOT good for a Captain America candidate

  25. 25

    Ryan is way too effeminate-looking

  26. 26

    OMG, YES!!! He is super hot! I don't even really know too much about him, but just by his appearance I know he'll make a fantastic Captain America!

  27. 27

    I dont like Ryan very much but he would play the part well. I would like to see Michael Phelps play Captain America! ;) I know thats a weird suggestion but I think he'd be a good pick. I think Kellan Lutz would be an excellent Captain America too. Just look at him, he has the look down and his voice, muscles and acting skills are all great!

  28. 28

    Don't know those two but Ryan looks better… but is he also a good actor??? mmm Don't really care :P

  29. 29

    Ryan all the way. When I heard it might be John I didn't get excited to see it but if Ryan does it, I'm so there.

  30. 30

    DEFINITELY JOHN, hes so funny and hot, ryan phillipe is so old news!! no ones gonna see it if ryan philipe is in it

  31. 31

    Neither! Ryan is a hasbeen and John is too sweet, not hero material.

  32. 32

    He's hot.

  33. 33

    These movies are boring

  34. 34

    Ryan Phillippe is better actor Vs. John Krasinski!!

  35. 35

    john for sure. ryan isnt that great of an actor in the first place. all he ever was in the 90s was a pretty face.

  36. 36

    RYAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. 37


  38. 38

    Ryan speaks like a 5 yr old with a speech impediment.

  39. 39

    I hate him

  40. 40

    John Krasinski is way too fugly/nerdy for Captain America. He does not look like a super hero, more like a retard.

    I say either Ryan Phillippe, Mike Vogel or Chris Evans!

  41. YUCK says – reply to this


    OMG RYAN all the way, he is so hot, no one has really tapped in to his appeal yet. he is hot.

  42. 42

    no way… he's not even charming. If Ryan Phillipe were Cap. America, it would be a BIG failure. John Krasinski rocks!!

  43. 43

    John!! He is awesome!

  44. 44


  45. 45

    I don't like either for the role. They really need to go with an unknown, imo.

  46. Low says – reply to this


    Ryan MUCH better.. if that skinny, tall John plays Cap. It won't be Captain America.

  47. 47

    KELLAN LUTZ!!!! Both those other two would be horrible (John more so than Ryan but still)

  48. 48

    Ryan has a baby face with no character at all to it. He can't act. He's a lightweight doofus, IMO.

    John for sure!! Ryan looks like a little girl to me for some reason…:)
