It's official. Chris Evans will become Captain America. This decision will dominate the young actor's career, since Marvel will want to feature the character in several films.

Chris Evans may be taking on the coveted role of Captain America for director Joe Johnston. The actor has reportedly received an offer, but nothing has been officially confirmed.


Evans is no stranger to the world of superheroes. He starred as the Human Torch in two Fantastic Four flicks. Both films were modest hits for 20th Century Fox.
