    I know a lot people will probably have a problem with Captain America not being played by a white guy but I honestly see no problem with it. There's no doubt in my mind that Will Smith would be a good Captain America.

    But remember, it's just a rumor and it's only Captain America.

    Thoughts everyone?

    I doubt this is true. If only because Will Smith was recently in Hancock, just seems unlikely to go from that to a genuine comic book hero.

    There has been a black Captain America in the comics before, but the way it relates to the story of the main guy to wear the suit is something that is very race based. It just wouldn't be the same person at all if they used a black actor for the main fellow in the movie.

    Of course, if people speak out against this casting, they'll all be shot down as racists.

    That is sadly very true. :(

    Kind of like I had to get used to a black Green Lantern on the old Justice League episodes....

    It'll be weird having Smith though. Not saying he'd make Captain America any less American :lol:, but it'd just be an adjustment fans will have to get used to. If this rumor is true, and Will Smith does a good job, he'll be a fan hero. If it ends up bombing, the casting will go under intense criticism.
