On the heels of Iron Man's massive box office success, few moviegoers will admit now if they had their doubts upon hearing of Robert Downey Jr. landing the title role. To steal a line from the film, he didn't seem like the "superhero type." Captain America fans might have the same reaction if current rumors about Marvel's first choice for the lead are true.
ComicBookMovie.com is reporting that Leonardo DiCaprio is in line to play America's supersoldier. He'd have to bulk up to don the shield, but the toughness he showed in The Departed makes Cap less of a leap for him. Keep in mind that just a month or so ago, Matthew McConaughey was supposed to be Steve Rogers -- with or without his shirt off.
The DiCaprio news comes close on the heels of reports that Brad Pitt tops the list to star in Marvel's Thor franchise (perhaps with pro wrestler Triple H filling in for the more muscled-up, hammer-wielding scenes).
Nooooo!! Not Leonardo DiCaprio!
