Captain America gets his Bucky

Posted by LiveFor on April 2, 2010

Chris Evans got the role of Steve Rogers, but one of the other actors who was rumoured to be up for that role has got the part of Cap’s sidekick Bucky Barnes.

That man is Sebastian Stan according to Heat Vision. He has starred in Gossip Girl, Hot Tub Time Machine and has a role in Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan.

Barnes, a teenaged orphan, was too young to join the army but became one camp’s mascot. When he discovered Captain America’s identity, he joined Captain America as a partner in his Nazi-fighting escapades. The character died in Captain America’s final World War II adventure.

For a long time comic book characters who were to stay dead were often referred to as being Bucky Dead. However, like all things that changed and Bucky returned in 2005 as the Winter Soldier – he had been turned into an assassin with a bionic arm.

No word on whether that storyline will show up but Stan has been signed up for 5 or 6 films.

Shooting on the Joe Johnston-directed pic starts this summer in Europe.
