Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is apparently some kind of cult favorite graphic novel (is there any other kind of graphic novel?) set to be directed by Edgar Wright.  The cast recently added Superman Brandon Routh, Brie Larson (whoever the hell that is), and… Chris Evans.

“Pilgrim” — to be directed by Edgar Wright (“Shaun of the Dead“) for Universal — centers on young slacker Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera). After meeting the woman of his dreams (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), he finds that he can win her heart only by battling and defeating her seven evil exes — six men and a woman. [THR]

You know this is gonna suck now that Chris Evans is in it.  He’ll soon be reprising his Fantastic Four role as shitty superhero in Push, which will make Jumper look like X-Men.  I’m sure he’s a nice guy and all but he’s basically the male Kate Hudson, the turd in the swimming pool of our dreams.
