Stanley Tucci joins the cast of ‘Captain America’

Seems like Marvel is calling in the big guns….

It’s just been confirmed  by the studio that  Academy Award nominee Stanley Tucci has joined the cast of  ‘Captain America.’   Tucci will portray Dr. Abraham Erskine,  and will star alongside Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Sebastian Stan and Hayley Atwell.

Here’s a little history on Tucci’s character from the Hollywood Reporter:

In the early comics, Erskine was a German scientist behind Project Rebirth, the secret experiment that created the Super Soldier known as Captain America.

This is the latest of many casting announcements in recent weeks regarding the ‘Avengers’ franchise, and it seems as if Marvel is holding nothing back. As reported last weekend, Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner is also in talks to portray Hawkeye.

‘Captain America’ hits theaters in July 2011,  and will be preceded by ‘Thor’ which drops in May.
