Is Johnny Storm the new Captain America? The Marvel superhero crossover may come true with the new rumor that Chris Evans, who played the Human Torch in Fox's Fantastic Four movies has been offered the role of Captain America.
Although unconfirmed by Marvel or Evans' reps, the Hollywood Reporter is claiming that Evans has been offered the role of Steve Rogers in the soon-to-shoot Marvel Studios movie, ending months of speculation that has seen a remarkable number of actors being linked to the part. If true, this will be the third high-profile comic-related role for Evans; in addition to his Fantastic Four work, he also appears in this summer's much-anticipated Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.
