robert buckley cast as captain america Rumor: Robert Buckley Cast as Captain America?

Hours ago, Comic Book Movie reported a rumor from an “inside source” that actor Robert Buckley has been selected to play Captain America for Marvel Studios’ upcoming films.

Over the last few weeks, we’ve finally seen some movement on the long-awaited project with revelations from the director Joe Johnston that the casting process was moving forward with 5-6 candidates and a due date for selection set at March 1st. Filming is scheduled to begin in June and no supporting cast members have been cast.

While there is some other buzz reporting that Marvel may have made the decision, the original post at CBM has been pulled and at the time, they said it was a rumor themselves. We’ve seen far too many untrue rumors develop like this in the past so it is difficult to believe at the moment until we hear more.

Either way, if Marvel has made their decision already, or even if they haven’t, we’ll be seeing official confirmation very soon with the deadline fast approaching.

As our our old friend Jamie at IESB points out, Robert Buckley does fit the description set forth by Joe Johnston and is an unknown actor, American-born, 6’2″ with blonde hair and blue eyes.

Other rumored and confirmed candidates include Chris Pine, Ryan McPartlin and Chad Michael Murray. Interestingly, Buckley’s current gig is for the TV series One Tree Hill for which he replaced the character played by Chad Michael Murray, who starred in the program since its inception.

Stay tuned as this develops and we’ll let you know more on Captain America the moment it breaks.

  1. With several rumored picks now it would be nice if they would just announce who it is already. IF OTH gets renewed for another season I wonder if Robert's schedule would even work. I don't know when they would start filming for a new OTH season if it got renewed and when Captain America would be finished but I would think it would be close.

  2. I hope not. He is my least favorite candidate.

  3. I think they're crazy to cast anyone other than Mark Valley. He's totally Steve Rogers, and he's proving his “comic book action star” abilities every week now on Human Target. This kid looks almost exactly like Scott Speedman.. not so much Cap.

  4. Good news ! He looks ok to play the character

    b/w

    completely off topic (sorry)

    here is the new Last Airbender Olympic TV Spot which shows the fire nation archers

  6. His face is all wrong. He sort of looks like a young Arnold Swarzneggar in the face though. They need a scquare jawed guy not round jawed.
