Now that the search for Captain America is over and Chris Evans has beaten Channing Tatum and Sebastian Stan to the 3 picture deal offer (as yet unsigned). Alex Ross has offered some sagely advice.

Alex Ross is the artistic genius who reinvigorated Marvel Comics in the 90s much in the same way Allan Moore and Frank Miller did for DC in the 80s. He also also redesigned Captain America twice, once for the dark and revolutionary Earth X series in the early 1990s, turning Cap into an aged, bald and battle scarred warrior and again when he "modernised" Captain America in late 2007.

So Alex Ross knows Captain America and this is what he had to say to Entertainment Weekly magazine:

"We've been saying for years, if you don't sign Jon Hamm to play this part, you're crazy.

"Captain America is supposed to be the patriarch of the Marvel universe. To get a guy in his early to mid-20s is only thinking about where the character began, not what he ultimately needs to become."
