Somehow Captain America Got Even Hotter

There are certain super heroes that gays seem to instinctively lust after. Aquaman, although I will go on the record as stating that this is NOT the reason he's my favorite male hero. I think I just like his orange shirt.

There's also Green Lantern (Hal Jordan):And Nightwing (formerly the first Robin, Dick Grayson):
And joining the ranks most recently, as rendered by Nicola Scott, former Z-List super villain-turned-antihero Catman:
He's the bulge on the right.
I, on the other hand, prefer more wholesome, slightly square but still beefy do-gooders, so my dream hero is none other than Captain America.
Who, it just so happens, is slated to get his own movie in a couple of years. Now sadly, this movie is being made NOW, so the one man perfect for the role, the most beautiful man ever is... well, deceased. R.I.P. Paul Newman.Plus, he makes the yummiest pasta sauce you can buy, Sockerooni. Look for it at your local grocery store.

Alas, opportunity missed. The latest casting rumor is that Chris "Captain Kirk" Pine is in negotiations to play the Star-Spangled Avenger.
Judging by that underwear scene, he'd "fill" the role of Cap perfectly! Note:
Yup, looks about right.

It's funny, because Chris Pine is a little bit all-American, but slightly quirky. He's not an Adonis like Kellan Lutz, but he's sexier. He has a certain swagger and raffish charm. I am giving this casting rumor my stamp of approval, now hurry up and make it happen, Hollywood, so I can see Chris Pine in tights!

Interestingly, Chris Hemsworth has been cast as Thor.Chris Hemsworth played George Kirk, James T. Kirk's father in the opening scene of Star Trek. So that would be a funny coincidence, when they get around to combining all of Marvel's heroes in the planned Avengers movie, you'd have both father and son playing opposite each other. Chris Pine + Chris Hemsworth = a whole lotta yummy man candy.

Most people aren't aware of this, but this will be the THIRD live-action Captain America. Reb Brown starred in two made-for-TV movies as Cap in the 70s. That costume is... certainly... something.
Most people are also unaware that there was a live-action Captain America movie made, shortly after the 1989 Michael Keaton/Tim Burton Batman movie. It was so terrible that they didn't even release it in theaters. It went straight to VHS.
This version of Cap was played by Matt Salinger, son of J.D.! Seriously! The movie was a turd, but the suit doesn't look bad at all, and Matt's got the requisite blond/blue eyed all-American look.

So, well see what happens with Chris Pine, but I'm rooting for him! Let's make this happen, Marvel!
