Will Smith as Captain America

September 27, 2008

Crossing the boards and being a massive Captain America fan I stumbled upon that title on Newsarama. As a fan of Will Smith he’d certainly be a good character in the story but lets look at the factors.

1. The coloured soldiers that were injected with a flawed version of the super soldier serum, all ended up crippled or dead (granted for some it took longer to take hold)

2. They were never given the title Captain America.

3. Captain America or Steve Rogers is a legacy character and as Marvel are bringing out the films as legacy characters then I can’t see this working.

4. Marvel have already stated that this is the Marvel War film, In WW2 sad as it is Coloured soldiers were not a accepted part of the Military, They were used for menial tasks.

5. Part of what Captain America after the Super Soldier Serum was the fact that here was a man who if he was German was a poster boy for Nazism, and that’s what scared the Nazi’s, why couldn’t they do the same. If it was a coloured soldier it would have radicalised both the American army and the allies. Sad Fact but true.
