Chris Evans will be playing Captain America, Marvel says.

Kevin Feige of Marvel Studios will produce “The First Avenger: Captain America” with Alan Fine, Stan Lee, David Maisel, Stratton Leopold and Louis D’Esposito as executive producers.

This does raise an interesting question. Chris Evans is no stranger to superpower films. He played (plays) Johnny Storm in the Fantastic Four movies. Not only d

id he play Johnny Storm, it seems he played Johnny Storm well. Perhaps I’m nitpicking, but in the Marvel Universe, there is a sense of continuity. It is all the same place.

How can Johnny Storm also be Steve Rogers?

It’s not the first time Marvel has cast an individual in two separate rolls in the same universe. Ryan Reynolds played Deadpool in “X-men Origins: Wolverine” and Hannibal King in “Blade Trinity”.

I suppose if one reads too closely between the lines, Johnny Storm and Captain America are never going to interact with each other in a Marvel film.

Or, just like Clark Kent and Superman, they can never be in the same room at the same time.
