Leonardo Di Caprio is supposed to be “Iron Man”, Sarah Michelle Gellar is supposed to be “Wonder Woman”, George Clooney is up for Mr Fantastic in “The Fantastic Four” and Ashton Kutcher is the latest chap rumoured to be suiting up as “Batman”. What’s to say Brad Pitt’s not Superhero material too?
According to SFX magazine – via Superhero Hype – Pitt is the frontrunner to bring comic’s “Captain America” to life in a soon to be happening feature adaptation.
“The inside word on the ultra-secret project is that a big name producer is poised to bring the star-spangled warrior to the screen. Pitt has expressed a 3-picture deal, establishing a new superheroic franchise. The trilogy would be loosely based on Mark Millar and Brian Hitch’s acclaimed comic book The Ultimates, which successfully retooled the character for modern audience.
“Production will begin as soon as a lingering lawsuit with Captain America co-creator Joe Simon has been settled. A similar legal quagmire bedevilled a certain web-slinger, but the team behind the movie are confident that it can soon be sorted and the film fast-tracked to the screen.
"The same problems held up the Spider-Man movie for some time," says an insider on the project, "but the producers feel that the new wave of patriotism in the country could push Cap through the roof right now. However it’s worth pointing out that this isn’t going to be some cheesy, gung-ho pic. It’s going to be pretty gritty, real-war kind of stuff and Captain America is going to be America’s most deadly secret weapon…"
Gary Daniels [yep the martial-arts guy] is another chap who’s expressed interest in playing “Captain America”.
