Sebastian Stan Is Bucky

Posted by Grey Saturday, April 3, 2010

While Sebastian Stan won't exactly be playing the role of Steve Rogers, that doesn't mean that he won't get the chance to step into the boots of the star-spangled Avenger.

Sebastian Stan might still get his hands on the shield of Captain America, provided the film franchise go the way of the comic's continuity, of which the mantle of Captain America was handled over to the former sidekick extraordinaire, Bucky.

Yes, Sebastian Stan has landed the James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes in "The First Avenger: Captain America", according to The Hollywood Reporter. Joining Chris Evans, recently cast as Steve Rogers and Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull, Stan has reportedly signed on to reprise the role of Bucky in an unconfirmed number of additional Marvel films.

While originally portrayed as a teenage sidekick to Captain America in the comic books, Bucky was "killed" in an incident which also caused the suspended animation of the original Captain America, Steve Rogers. While Rogers himself was resurrected in 1964's Avengers #4, poor Bucky found his way back to the pages of Captain America in 2005, revealed to survived the ordeal but got himself brainwashed to be a Soviet assassin under the codename "Winter Soldier". Taking over the mantle of his mentor after the aftermath of "Civil War", of which Rogers was seemingly gunned down, Bucky has proven himself worthy of the title, and has remain in this position despite the resurrection (yet again) of his mentor.

It remains to be seen if Marvel Studio will be taking the path of the comic, with Stan signed on for multiple films. Having Bucky returning as a potential antagonistic role in a sequel might prove to be a most profitable marketing ploy.

Stan was previously listed one of the contender for the title role in "The First Avenger: Captain America," a role which he ultimately lost to Chris Evans.

Paramount's "Captain America," directed by "Wolfman"'s Joe Johnson, is scheduled for a July 22, 2011, release.
