A new name has been added as being Marvel Studio's pick to play the title character in The First Avenger: Captain America - and that name is Leonardo diCaprio. That's right, according to Latino Review, diCaprio is currently at the head of Marvel's list to play Steve Rogers.

If that wasn't enough, apparently Marvel's second choice for the role is none other than Brad Pitt. Pitt's name has also been dropped for taking on Marvel's thunder-god, Thor.

Now, they are quick to point out that Marvel is extremely unlikely to confirm or deny this report until something is decided. Further, they point out that an offer has probably not even been made yet - simply that within the halls of Marvel Studios, diCaprio is the primary name being mentioned.
