Chris Evans is Captain America. We all know it. He is Steve Rogers, and there was never anyone better for the role. But Evans, famously, was reluctant to take the role, and as such, Marvel had to make sure they had their bases covered when it came to casting one of the core characters in their grand plan. That meant compiling a list. While they had been content to cast lesser known names for the likes of Thor and Loki, Marvel was looking for some bigger names to play Cap, including the likes of Jensen Ackles.
A new book charting the history of the MCU has revealed that Jensen Ackles was a leading candidate to play Captain America.
