Entertainment Weekly has 8 new pictures from ‘Captain America’, starring Chris Evans. This could turn out to be the best superhero movie of the year, especially if you’re a guy and so is your date. And check out Dr. Ass Looker back there in the goggles. That guy is in love. Hey, eyes up here buddy.
Chris Evans is in Manchester, England today filming ‘Captain America’ and, for his sake, hopefully these pictures show him as Steve Rogers after entering the Super Soldier program. A scientist played by Stanley Tucci injects Rogers with experimental drugs, and he’s given super strength, endurance, and agility. And giant melty feet.
And apparently something magical is happening to his dong too, though I don’t remember that part from the comic. What is this thing rated? I’m not sure I’m comfortable with Hollywoods new take on this.

Someone go tell Channing Tatum that these 5 posters are from “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World”, and they made them up for the character played by Chris Evans, otherwise he’s gonna be pretty confused as to why he wasn’t starring in at least one of them. I know I am.

THE AVENGERS - were on stage together at Comic-Con, and HERE is a giant full sized picture of it showing, from left to right, Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson), Scarlet Johansson (Black Widow), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo (the Hulk) and director Joss Whedon. It’s an amazing cast with the exception of Ruffalo, who replaced Edward Norton. So they replaced one monotone, zero-charisma bore with another, for a character who talks about science. Try to be in your seats for his scenes so you don’t fall down. (aint it cool)
HALLE BERRY – broke up with Gabriel Aubry in April (they dated for 5 years and had a daughter in 2008) but yesterday all 3 of them flew to South Africa. Halle is going to film a movie called ‘Dark Tide’, Gabriel is going to scope out new black chicks. (popeater)
INCEPTION – won the weekend box office again ($43.5 million), despite a strong debut by Angelina Jolies ‘Salt’ ($36.5 million), which maybe would have made more if it didn’t sound like some kind of cooking show. (variety)
BLAKE LIVELY – was at Comic-Con to promote ‘the Green Lantern’, and she and Ryan Reynolds sat on a panel and waited for questions while several hundred nerds nudged each other and pantomimed tits. (getty)
The LA Times has an interview today with Joe Johnston, a director who has been in Hollywood for 30 years but has never actually made a movie that didn’t completely suck. Next up for Joe is my beloved Captain America, and he’s not off to the greatest start in the world with this one either.
“He’s a guy that wants to serve his country but he’s not a flag-waver. We’re reinterpretating sort of what the comic book version of Steve Rogers was.”
“…it’s also the idea that this is not about America so much as it is about the spirit of doing the right thing. It’s an international cast and an international story.”
I’m still hopeful because this has a tremendous cast led by Chris Evans and was (reportedly) re-written by the great Joss Whedon, but Johnston had a great cast and writer for ‘the Wolfman’ too, and he took the controls and steered it right into the ground. Even the best ideas can be ruined if the wrong guy is in charge. Take slavery for example, that was a great deal, but then that busybody Lincoln had to ruin it.

Anna Faris is really really hot and really really funny, and by all accounts she’s one of the nicest people in Hollywood, which is why I’ve always said that she simply couldn’t be any more likable. But then she did get more likable by taking all her clothes off and running around naked, thus making me look like quite the fool. Touché Anna Faris.
(WARNING – these pictures, shot last night in Boston on the set of ‘What’s My Number’, also feature Chris Evans, and he’s naked too. While I’m a big Chris Evans fan because ‘Push’ and ‘Sunshine’ were really good movies that he was excellent in, and there was no better choice to play Captain America, I’m not a fan to the extent where I enjoy seeing his naked ass. So I clumsily photoshopped him out whenever I could, but you need to brace yourself when you get to the final 3 pictures.)
