Stanley Tucci will star alongside Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell in director Joe Johnston's Captain America: The First Avenger. Tucci will take on the role of Dr. Abraham Erskine, the scientist responsible for creating Captain America. The adaptation is set to hit theaters on July 22, 2011.
Superhero flicks show no signs of slowing down. Iron Man 2 has already raked in a little more than $290 million domestically since kicking off the summer season.
Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds will team up for the second time in Most Wanted, a new action comedy being housed at Universal. The project is from the same people responsible for The Proposal: director Anne Fletcher, writer Pete Chiarelli and producers David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman.
The Proposal raked in an impressive $164 million last summer, so financial expectations will be big. Luckily, Bullock is on fire after her Oscar win for The Blind Side and a tongue-in-cheek appearance at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night.
