Comic book creator Stan Lee wants to make Will Smith the first black CAPTAIN AMERICA - if 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 tells 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!"
