At this point we all know what works and what doesn't. Him being disliked for being annoying is no surprise at all and really I couldn't imagine him playing any kind of serious role or being taken seriously given his track record so it's all par for the course.
Is this something ppl wanted to see?
Evans and him are pretty much on Par with each other...literally the same exact actor and caliber, I'd probably give the edge to Reynolds because I don't think Evans can rock out a romcom....yet no one hates on Evans, well because he's attached to Cap and MCU....Reynolds is also better than Pratt, definitely has more range than him, but not Pratt is literally on A list caliber because of what?...2 movies...dude was fat and just funny on a sitcom....but once again Starlord/MCU fanboyism....not saying he either Chris was bad, but had Reynolds landed some role in the MCU he would have been praised as well....he's not a bad actor and definitely better than Pratt, Evans and even RDJ...he just had some crappy ***** scripts.
You'll get no argument here. I was never a big fan of Evans. Son was just tolerable and yes as an actor he seems even more limited than Reynolds. In comparison Reynolds definitely has more range (he did have that movie where he was buried alive).
Evans is kinda just there if he's not playing the hot guy or one liner guy. I don't find anything special about his Cap. He was a better Johnny Storm.
Sort of like Reynolds though, Evans has been in a lot of sci fi comic book movies over the 13 years or so (he was rarely the lead though) and he was getting just about the same outcome Reynolds was until the success with Cap and that's mainly cuz the MCU as a whole did well.
Reynolds gets the hate cuz of his snarky sarcastic demeanor. It's borderline douchey. I don't hate on him for that, I kind of just accept when he acts in certain roles he'll just bring that same tired act over and over but c'mon now if Evans had sucked as Johnny Storm then stunk up some other cbm or two and then got the role as Cap ppl would be bemoaning it before they saw it as well. Reynolds gave us a lot of crap when it comes to being the lead of a comic book movie. I think yall guys underselling how bad Green Lantern was and how atrocious RIPD was.
I don't get why yall can't see why Reynolds gets hate. Comparing him to Pratt is even more of a fail. That'd be like asking how come ppl don't praise Leo but everybody praises Tom Hardy. You comparing somebody who been around the block to the new guy. Pratt hasn't been in movies for the past decade so we can get tired of him and even then some ppl are ******* tired already of Pratt's name being brought up for every new lead action role just cuz he was good as Star-Lord. I know I don't want him to be my new Indiana Jones. The reason for Pratt's push is once again Hollywood is thirsty for their next straight white male they can champion for franchises for the next decade. They're thirsty for past decades cuz they don't know how to adapt. Has nothing to do with Marvel fanboysim. Being in the MCU just raises an actors profile.
I've already said I could've seen Reynolds as Hawkeye. He'd be a better Hawkeye than Renner. I can't see him as many other Marvel superheroes though. I thought he was a terrible fit for Hal Jordan GL before it even came out.
Also bringing up Reynolds' range is all well and good but lets not pretend dude is bringing that consistently in all his movies. He hasn't made that role choice pivot that Matthew McConaghey made to be taken as a more improved actor by directors, producers, and studios out there. Dude is still seen as the comic relief guy.
Pause on who you think looks better between Pratt and/or Evans, Reynolds. You and @Tdogg2k
can have that.
As far as hate, there's also the clearly subjective stance some ppl just really don't like Reynolds for w/e reason. Everybody have actors they just can't stand.Edited by Master Zik - 11/12/15 at 11:22am
