Comic book creator Stan Lee wants to make Will Smith the first black Captain America is Barack Obama wins the presidential election.
A movie version of the Marvel graphic novel is being planned for 2011.
Matthew McConaughey’s name has been linked with the role – but Lee hints it could go to Smith, if Obama becomes the first black president.
Lee told Moviefone: “I would love us to do something with Will Smith. It would be a real leap to make Captain America black… then again, I don’t know. It might be a really smart thing. If Barack Obama becomes President who knows… suddenly a lot of our characters will be black!”
