I remember how there was an outcry when the casting for Captain America was revealed back in 2010. It became an issue that Chris Evans was cast as Captain America, when he also had the role of Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) under his belt. Fanboys were also outraged that Evans wasn’t mature enough.. that he couldn’t fully embody the spirit of the Captain.
Nobody really understood why Director Joe Johnston was so keen on getting Evans for the role. People kept dissing Marvel Studios and claiming that it was a poor casting choice, and that the movie would tank. But Johnston had faith—faith that Evans could pull it off and bring Captain America to life (even if Evans didn’t believe at first that he could do it).
Looking back, it all seems so silly now. Captain America: The First Avenger beat all expectations and dominated over Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 for the #1 spot in the Box Office, just a week after the Potter film was released.
More recently, The Avengers shattered Box Office records by becoming the very first film to reach the $200 million dollar mark on Opening Weekend in the U.S. and reached $641 million dollars worldwide in just 12 days. Guess who became one of the favorite and most talked about actors in that movie? Yeap, Chris Evans.
Sometimes, a little faith can go a long way. Chris Evans did such a great job portraying Captain America, that people like me who used to dislike the character ended up liking and respecting him and what he stood for.
Thank you, Joe Johnston for keeping the faith.

It’s all about keeping the faith.

LOL LOL LOL
Tom Felton seriously looks like he came straight out of The Lord of the Rings with his new wardrobe for his upcoming mini-series called Labyrinth. LOL
In “Labyrinth,” he plays the role of Viscount Trencavel, a prominent figure in history who died as a martyr during the Crusade’s attack on the Cathars (why does he always die in the movies these days? T_T).
Kinda glad though that his acting career has been getting somewhere after Harry Potter. WTG Tom! Can’t wait to catch it on film this 2012! :)
Srsly Yates… srsly?!
Why cut the best Drarry scene out of DH?
When everyone just stood there watching as they found Harry to be alive, it was only Draco who reacted and helped him by giving his wand. And this clip…this DELETED clip is just too precious for words. Drarry is canon, I tell ya! ♥
OMG OMG OMGGGGGGGGG IT’S TRUE. IT’S REAL. AND JOANNE KATHLEEN ROWLING IS A CO SCRIPTWRITER. OKAY. IT HAPPENED.
Post a video of Drarry on Tumblr and randomly find a friend’s Tumblr account after she reblogs :P
Hi Jerica! I see you’ve found my major fangirling Tumblr blog XD
