*sniff* I'm so Happy...

No, seriously.

According to just about everyone, actor Chris Evans has landed the role of Captain America in the upcoming The First Avenger: Captain America. Director Joe Johnston (Jumanji) is set to helm.

I'm so psyched on this bit of casting. You may be wondering whether or not Evans is really leading man material and whether or not you can ignore that he has already played Johnny Storm in two Fantastic Four movies. Stop worrying; if you haven't seen Danny Boyle's Sunshine, you're missing out. Evans stole the movie from Cillian Murphy and that one Bond/Jackie Chan girl.

That being said, Johnston had better not screw this up. I love Cap. But how can a movie about the only other notable comic book boy scout besides Superman be successful in an age of cynicism and violent anti-heroes? Darker tone, anyone?
