Jensen vs Chris  
Hi! This is me again writing in English! Is it going to be a Wednesday thing? Maybe, I don't know. At least I'll try to do it on a weekly basis.

Today I'm going to talk about Captain America AND Steve/Tony so you can totally skip this post if you are not into that :)

A couple of weeks ago, as I said when Chris Hemsworth was the babe of the week, I watched The Avengers and I fell crazy in love with it. Well, obsessed is a more accurate word for it.

While on Tumblr, I read some girl saying that she really loved the movie, but she would have loved it more if Jensen Ackles had been chosen to play Captain America, because he would have been so good. That got me thinking. Would have been, really?

When Chris Evans got the part, I wasn't very convinced. First, because I only had seen him in "silly" roles before: Cellular, Not Another Teen Movie, The Perfect Score. And second, because I'm not really a fan of actors playing more than one superhero. If he was already the Human Torch, why should he be playing Captain America too? Didn't seem fair.

I really wanted Ryan McPartlin to get the part: he's physically perfect, and can do humor very well. Then that picture was released and well... Now I can't picture Ryan as Steve Rogers before the serum xD

I finally watched Captain America: The First Avenger the day before I went to see The Avengers. I liked it, and Chris convinced me, he was adorable, both before and after the serum. I never really cared for the character before, because I really haven't read a lot of Marvel stories and always thought he looked kind of silly, but I ended up liking Captain America a lot.


And then I watched The Avengers.

I went to see it expecting to ship Iron Man/Captain America. The trailer looked very promising, but I wanted to see with my own eyes if Robert and Chris had real chemistry or not. And wow. I was totally blown away by their sexual tension, it was amazing.

So, what if Jensen Ackles got the part? I don't know. He's a great actor, specially if he has someone by his side who can get the best of him, and RDJ is an excellent actor, so they'd have probably been very good together. Jensen usually has chemistry with everyone and that happens to be Robert's case too, so I have no doubts that they'd have had chemistry too. But, THAT incredible, mind blowing sexual tension that Robert and Chris have? Not sure about that. But that's maybe because Jensen has that kind of tension with Misha, so I don't really imagine him having this kind of intensity with another person. Altough Robert has that tension with Jude, and with Val Kilmer, and with a lot of people, really, so I guess we'll never know.
(And to be fair, yeah, Robert has a lot of chemistry with Mark Ruffalo as well, but I like to see Tony and Bruce as BFF's. I liked Tony with Rhodey too, but that was before Steve xD)


The point is, thanks to Chris' performance I've ended up loving Captain America very, very much, so now I can't really imagine another actor playing him. And his scenes with Iron Man didn't disappoint at all, quite the contrary. So all I can say is that casting Chris Evans was an excellent decision and I'm very grateful for that.

(Gifs aren't mine. Got them on Tumblr, I don't know who did them, sorry)

Uff...I don't know...
I like Jensen, I really do. And I swear that when I saw Chris for the very first time I couldn't find him very handsome (I mean, ok, what a body!! But his face...not my cup of tea)
However, after watching "Captain America" and "The Avengers" I couldn't find another guy playing that role.
And after watching Jensen playing Dean for all these years, I can't think of him as the most patriotic role in the USA.
If Jensen were going to play a superhero...I think someone darker could be the right choice for him...(or the gay superhero...if only... northstar )
XDDD

Well I couldn't picture this guy:



as the most patriotic and righteous American man either xDDDDD

Hehe if Jensen plays Northstar then Misha should play his soon to be husband xD
Or maybe he can play Human Torch now that it needs a new actor :p
