Well, this is interesting. Sebastian Stan, who portrayed Bucky Barnes in Captain America: The First Avengers and has an important role in its sequel, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, is apparently attached to Marvel for the long haul. While Chris Evans only has a six-picture deal with the studio, Stan recently told Newsarama “I think I have nine.”
Comic book fans will know that Bucky Barnes took up the mantle of Captain America for a time – is this the route that Marvel plans to take? It’s difficult to say without having seen The Winter Soldier, but with Evans only signed for two more appearances after The Avengers: Age of Ultron, we may very see the passing of the guard in the next few years. Feel free to speculate below.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens on April 4.
