Stanley Tucci joins Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell in Captain America
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The CAPTAIN AMERICA casting news keeps flying in at a lightning fast pace as today we learn that Stanley Tucci will be starring as Dr. Erskine in the upcoming film. Dr. Erskine was one of the top scientists behind the project/experiment that eventually created Captain America. He joins a cast that includes Chris Evans, Hayley Atwell, Tommy Lee Jones, Sebastian Stan, Hugo Weaving, Dominic Cooper, Toby Jones and most recently, Neal McDonough. Joe Johnston will be directing the film.
CAPTAIN AMERICA has the unenviable task of having to not only set up a revered superhero, but having to set up the eventual AVENGERS film. Based solely off the numerous recognizable actors and actresses they have starring in the film, I’d say they have too much going on, but I’m trying to remind myself that they kind of have to. I just hope they keep the story simple enough that audiences can connect to Steve Rogers on our way to getting ready for the AVENGERS.
