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.

Captain America is going to be played by….

Posted by LiveFor on March 19, 2010

Hold up. Not so fast there pilgrim. Nothing is totally official, but here is what I know.

According to IESB, the role of Steve Rogers is down to there – Channing Tatum (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra), Chris Evans (Fantastic Four, The Losers), and a sneaky entry by Sebastian Stan (Gossip Girl). However, Tatum could be down for another G.I. Joe, Stan is not American (he’s Romanian and apparantly they don’t want a non-American in the part, that’s why Sam Worthington ruled himself out) and Evans could be tied to another FF film (although all reports suggest any new FF film will be a reboot with an all new cast.

Wait there though, I’m not finished.

According to Heat Vision blog Chris Evans has been offered the role of Captain America.

Marvel has not confirmed the development and CAA, which reps the actor, declined to comment.

Out of the three mentioned I would have to say Evans is the best choice. He’s got a bit more to him than the others and has the charisma needed to play Cap. Plus he is a known name and face, but not a huge name if you know what I mean.

Therefore, we may have finally got out Captain America. Mind you Alex Ross (the brilliant artist behind Marvels, Kingdom Come and so much more) has suggested John Hamm (Mad Men) as “Captain America is supposed to be the patriarch of the Marvel universe. To get a guy in his early to mid-20s is only thinking about where the character began, not what he ultimately needs to become.”

I have to agree with him. All the people chose to audition for the role are just that bit too young, Aaron Eckhart or Mark Valley would have been cool, but Hamm would also work (he’d be great as Superman though). Like I said out of the three names at the top Evans is the best of them.

Let’s just wait for the official announcement.

Do you think Chris Evans is the best choice for the role? Will he be able to fit it in with his Radio 2 morning show (a joke for the Brits there)? What superhero role should John Hamm play?
