Apparently, according to Derek Luke, star of the upcoming Miracle at St. Anna, the face of Captain America may not be the Arian Adonis weâ€™ve been so used too over the past half a century and more.
â€œI heard they offered Will Smith â€˜Captain America,â€™â€ said Luke, in an interview with MTV, adding that the intriguing casting rumor â€œjust shows you how times have changed.â€
Apparently, this is a reference to the title character of Marvel’s The First Avenger: Captain America movie.
Now letâ€™s be clear: at the moment, this is the epitome of rumor. Some guy (who Iâ€™ve never heard of) has suggested that Will Smith (how does he know him?) will play Captain America (how would he have heard this?). But it is nevertheless an interesting thought to run through the wheels.
George Roush over at Latino Review seems to be on the verge of a cardiac arrest after hearing this news. He, apparently, really doesnâ€™t like Will Smith. Personally, I think the idea would be inspired! As Roush mentioned, who cares if heâ€™s black, thatâ€™s not the issue at hand. Roush has a problem with his ego, or, something or other, Iâ€™m not certain. For me, I think heâ€™d be perfect for the role.
But what do you think? Comment below, we want to hear your thoughts!
