Captain America is The Human Torch

All I've got to say is thank God it's not Channing Tatum or that guy from the US version of "The Office"!

Chris Evans is not an entirely bad choice provided he's not a smart-ass in the role; Steve Rogers is not the smart-ass that Johnny Storm is.

So the guy who played The Human Torch in the Fantastic Four film is now Captain America which means how will the FF ever cross paths with the Avengers and Captain America? Stuff like the cover below might not happen.

Then again, there had been rumours that the Fantastic Four film franchise was on the verge of a reboot so that might not be an issue after all.

And if they add The Invaders into the Captain America film, it will mean that the guy who played the modern Human Torch will be acting next to some other actor playing the original World War II-era Torch, the precursor of the one in the FF -- I forget the whole backstory connection now.

Chris Evans as Cap is not an entirely bad idea. I have reservations but I'm happy that a Captain America film is now a reality.
