Chris Evans ("Fantastic Four franchise," "The Losers") has signed on to play Captain America for Marvel Entertainment in at least three movies.

Evans' first Captain America starring role is in Joe Johnston's "The Wolfman" directed feature "The First Avenger: Captain America," which will be released on July 22, 2011, and distributed by Paramount.

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely wrote the script for the feature.

Evan will then reprise the role in "The Avengers," the movie that will unite Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth's Thor and Edward Norton's the Incredible Hulk. Movie is scheduled for May 4, 2012 release.

Evans' Captain America will likely to make cameo appearances in Marvel's other movies, a bonding marvel world which Marvel created starting from "Iron Man."

Created by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon, Captain America was the alter ego of Steve Rogers, a sickly young man who was enhanced to a perfect human weapon by an experimental serum, to aid the United States war effort against the Nazis. Captain America wears a costume that bears an American flag motif, and is armed with an indestructible shield that can be thrown as a weapon.

Kevin Feige and Stephen Broussard will co-produce the feature, while David Maisel, Stratton Leopold, Louis D'Esposito and Stan Lee will executive produce.
