Go figure, once Chris Evans got the lead role in The First Avenger: Captain America the fans got right to work. The efforts are beginning to show as fan-made posters are creeping their way online. We've got two good new ones for you from Film School Rejects.
As the cast begins to fill out and more rumors begin to circulate, the people are still getting used to their new hero. Ever since his performance in Sunshine, Chris Evans has been a believable actor to me. He's come quite a ways from Not Another Teen Movie. And if it's any consolation, you can argue that the questionable Fantastic Four movies were just prep roles for his ultimate hero character.
Anyway, back to the posters. Personally, I like the first one better, but the second one just screams Chris Evans' on-screen personality. Call me crazy, but it also reminds me a little too much of Hellboy. They are both still extremely professional and I can't imagine the real posters would look much different. Then again, if Chris Evans comes out looking like that, we better check him for anabolic steroids.
[Update: Two more for for you!]
This first one comes courtesy of our loyal reader, Steven Sabell, and features not only Cap, but The Avengers!
Next up, artwork made two years ago which ironically enough, actually looks like Chris Evans a bit. It was used in a pitch to Marvel for the movie back in 2008.
Pretty awesome stuff right there. What do you think? Does he fit the bill for you? Share your thoughts below.
Let us know whether you're happy about the casting or not in the Screen Rant poll.
