Washington, Sep 27 (ANI): Popular comic book creator Stan Lee wants Hollywood actor Will Smith to be his first black Captain America, if Presidential candidate Barack Obama wins.

Lees Marvel graphic novel is to be made into a motion picture in 2011.

It had been reported earlier that Matthew McConaughey was being approached for the lead role, but Lee, the creator of phenomenal Spiderman, has stated that the lead role may fall in Wills lap if Obama wins.

“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, Contactmusic quoted Lee, as saying.

If Barack Obama becomes President who knows… suddenly a lot of our characters will be black!” he added. (ANI)
