I've no problem with this idea. If people find themselves needing a primer on his backstory, go to Wikipedia or the Marvel Database. No need for yet another full blown origin film. If they feel the need to have a bit of origin, they should do what they did for The Incredible Hulk.

Bay says he doesn't want to, but we'll see what he says when the studio makes its pitch...

@lee7 True. But that was my whole point about his first comment. If it's not about Robin Williams, it shouldn't be brought up...

@ObiWanShinobi I thought you said you were leaving. I guess you're a liar on top of being self-righteous. Have a nice day...

@ObiWanShinobi Thanks for leaving.

@ObiWanShinobi No, sorry, but your self-righteousness is not going to play here. Again, you want to talk about Gaza, Iraq, or other "hot areas," find an article on CNN, Huffington Post, etc., and expound your ideas there. But this article is about Robin Williams, just as this site is about entertainment. Take your other thoughts elsewhere...

@ObiWanShinobi You want to think about it? Fine, think about it. But don't project those thoughts onto others that came here to talk about Robin Williams. You're being a douchebag by doing so.

@ObiWanShinobi It's you pandering on the wrong web site. Trying to guilt people into a discussion or bringing up thousands of others and their trials and tribulations is ridiculous. Leave that stuff for cnn.com.

@ObiWanShinobi Well then, perhaps you should take your political commentary to the public and off of MW, dipsh*t. Not the time nor the place for it.
ejk1 wrote a comment about the news item Robin Williams Passes Away at Age 63
@ObiWanShinobi Yep. On MW, people will talk about a movie star more than politics. Can you believe that? I mean, really, talking about a movie star on a web site dedicated to movie news. Unbelievable...

Dead Poets Society, Good Will Hunting, Mrs. Doubtfire, Good Morning Vietnam, Mork & Mindy, One Hour Photo, Awakenings, Patch Adams, etc., etc. The man has a legacy that is as unique as one will ever see. Able to be hilarious, serious, or downright creepy, there have been very few that have shown the range as Robin Williams. RIP, Great One...

Good for those involved, and those that liked the film.
MW, like every other site based in the US, only reports the BO intake in US theaters, you morons...
@shuabert Be serious for a minute. Evans isn't going anywhere anytime soon. He didn't have a great career going before landing Cap, and he certainly isn't going to turn down the next contract for Cap 4 and 5, whenever that scenario arises. I know some people don't like when I bring up the money (and perhaps you're one of them), but it is THE factor. Take a look at RDJ. He hints at retiring from being Stark after IM3 is released. I said it was a negotiating tactic, and some people disagreed. A few weeks ago, this site et al reported RDJ was "willing" to come back for an IM4. Again, negotiating tactic. He's looking for the big score. There's no faulting him for that; get what you can when you can get it.

Now apply it to Evans. He was never the best actor, nor the most bankable. Being Cap has made him a really big name, and the reception of Cap 2 has made Cap 3 a highly anticipated film, so much so that Marvel refused to blink when DC planted BvS on the same day (since then, DC has withdrawn their film). Ignoring the DC aspect, it is clear that Marvel believes (correctly) that the people believe in Evans and his portrayal of Cap. This means that Marvel will likely want to keep Evans in the role for a while, and will throw piles of money at him. Assuming he or his agent is not an idiot, Evans will accept Marvel's piles of cash. Anything he says to cast doubt on that is pure negotiation, and should be treated as so until the news headline says "Cap 4, starring someone other than Chris Evans."

So with all that said, no, he won't be leaving, and people shouldn't be trying to figure out when/if he should walk out the door. Additionally, as I said before, there are more Rogers tales that should be told. Von Strucker has just appeared, Zemo has yet to appear, and Red Skull is an issue that is still up in the air. Marvel will pay Evans to play, and he will.
It's so amusing to see @brian be told to go away from the site he runs. As for the story, if you're like Brian and dislike the films, be like Brian and don't spend your money on them, otherwise you're doing nothing to stem the tide. If you like them, then by all means rejoice in the news...
@shuabert I'm laughing at the suggestion that this may/could/should be done so early. One, Bucky only has so many Cap stories, and two, We don't know how long or successful Wilson as Cap will be. Just because Marvel is tempting fate with these changes in the books doesn't mean that those same changes should come any time soon on film.

In the long run, it won't matter. DC and Marvel films will continue to make big bank, and and only the fanbitches will drive the nonsense about who would crush who...
People just love to speculate on stupid things. Let's take a look at the facts:

Steve Rogers: Captain America 1941-2007, 2011-2014
Bucky Barnes: Captain America 2007-11
Sam Wilson: Captain America 2014-?

So speculation is that Marvel's going to switch out the guy that has 70 years of Cap stories for one of two guys that combined have about a tenth of that. Yeah, genius thinking there speculators.
Seems like Sony is just throwing sh*t against the wall to see what sticks. Sadly, no matter what sticks, it will still smell...
When Thanos arrives on Earth, the Avengers and Guardians will have to work together to stop him.
