    There is no way I would want Cena as Cap. Evans brought Cap to life, like right out of the comics. Obviously he cannot nor probably wants to play Capt forever, but to think a terrible actor like Cena with no facial acting ability , cannot see him having the hometown sensitivity and never giving up is anywhere close to Evans you have got to be out of your tiny minds. And he is a C possibly D actor and you want to star him alongside A+ actors in a HUGE role? Stop spreading these crappy rumours, he can Cosplay Cap if he likes but he will never be worthy. And this has nothing to do with Batista getting into acting as well , both being ex wrestlers, it’s about quality, Drax’s role although he is dumb atm( in Marvel he’s been super smart, dumbed down etc) he does fit the role ( smallish role) . Like reallly can you picture him and Bucky or Sam together? Never! Cena go home and cry into your nutra powder drink!

    Nah I’m good…Chris Evans is Capt,and even Sebastian Stan can’t replace him. Sorry Lugnuts.

    If Captain America was a DC character, John Cena would probably have a chance.

    Dear god no. I’m a Marvel fan through and through. I know everything about everyone in the MCU, and a little bit of the comics verse. But if John Cena were to play Captain America (not Steve Rogers. There is only one Steve) I might stop watching the upcoming Cap movies for good. The only person so far who would even come close to Chris Evans’ performance is Bucky’s Barnes’ actor, Sebastian Stan.
