Captain America has a Bucky: Sebastian Stan

04.01.2010

After much drama, debate, deliberation and delay, Marvel's CAPTAIN AMERICA finally found someone to wear the shield in Chris Evans. And now the star-spangled hero has found his comrade-in-arms Bucky, who'll be played by Sebastian Stan. 

Probably best known for his appearances on "Gossip Girl" (but also great in the short-lived series "Kings"), Stan previously tested to wear the forehead A, but his Romanian heritage apparently would've been a sticking point to play the all-American super soldier. Guess it's not an issue for Bucky Barnes! Also apparently not a problem is the age difference -- while the Bucky comic character is Cap's "kid sidekick", Stan is only two years younger than star Chris Evans.

In director Joe Johnston's movie, Bucky joins Cap in his WWII mission to defeat the Nazis and arch rival the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving?), alongside a multinational group of allies known as the Invaders.

Stan (who also appears in HOT TUB TIME MACHINE and Darren Aronofsky's upcoming THE BLACK SWAN) reportedly signed Marvel's usual deal for numerous potential sequels, which means that the character could conceivably follow his recent comic path, returning in the present day as the brainwashed Winter Soldier.

Extra Tidbit: As the villain in Renny Harlin's man-witch movie THE COVENANT, Stan actually tells his rival "I'm going to make you my wee-yotch!"

Huh,

My pick for the Cap was his co-star on Kings but I think he can pull of a Bucky. Pretty excited about this actually!

April Fool's Joke?

If there is any truth to this I like Shaw as Bucky. The character is a big part of the Capt. America origin. They could always kill him off as Cap heads into the future.

So maybe this means in the future we get Winter Soldier as well.

"I hate the name Bucky"

Good for you, you don't respect comics continuity and history, what do you want? To re-name a 70 year old character? Are you also one of the people who think Robin should be renamed Nightwing from the get go as well?

People tend to forget the meaning of the word adaptation. Filmmakers stay close to source material only willingly. If they wanted to change things, it would be up to them, no matter the history of a character. Its been done before. Stop crying.

Good to hear this

A CAP movie just wouldn't be as awesome without Bucky in the story.

I like the idea of a Bucky (except the name sort of sucks) character in this movie. I just don't want them to spread the focus of Cap to someone else.

Keep it like Iron Man, have Bucky in the background like Rhodey was.

FUCKING SUCK

Wow, good way to fuck up a movie...does every god damned movie have to have an adolescent character for the Twilight, tweenie-fuck crowd? (Die Hard 4, Indy 4...)Thanks, Marvel. FAIL.

Do you know what adolescent means? Not a single one of those characters is an adolescent.

Bucky is a teenager. The Mac kid is 38 but was playing a teen in DH4 and Shia is what 19 or something? Do your research. And nice avatar by the way...winner.

No, I'm not researching anything. You used as an example as "adolescent" characters Die Hard 4 and Indy 4. They are not adolescent. Speaking of which teenager does not mean adolescent either.

Since you don't know, "adolescence" describes a period in growth usually found in pubtery. Most commonly the ages 12-15.

Thanks, I like my avatar also.

Do we know for certain that he won't be like Ultimate Bucky?

Who was pretty much just Cap's childhood friend (which would make the 2 year age gap appropriate) and a war photographer?

I don't understand the Bucky hate. He is a major part of Captain America's story. I am glad they're introducing him. Although I'd prefer the Ultimates version of him I think if they include the Winter Soldier in a future movie I'd be pleased.

Something's telling me this movie won't be as good as most of us are hoping it'll be. Johnston's movies are always TOO commercial and WAY too hollow. I mean, I liked his older stuff, but I think that has a lot to do with me being a kid at the time.

I dunno, I just imagine everyone seeing this and being extremely disappointed.

How so? It's Captain America, Bucky, Red Skull, and Peggy. "Batman and Robin" had Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, and Bane.
It's not about how crowded it is, it's about the execution. This is no more crowded than the Iron Man or X-Men films.

i think he's refering to The Invaders being in the movie. that's a team of characters that according to Johnston will be in the entire 2nd half of the movie. it does seem kinda crowded but hopefully it works

I like this...

regardless of the age (non) difference... he looks the part... and apparently has the pedigree... As for Winter Soldier, never gonna happen... too much history and continuity to overcome, methinks... Better to have the tragic sidekick than a convoluted side-story to a "B"-list villan... And before all you Fanboys get upset about it, I love the Bucky-W.S.-Cap stuff, so settle down...

If they included the winter soldier story as part of the trilogy somewhere then this could be really cool news.

Good news. That is all. Also, Emily Blunt should be cast for the female lead.

Just an FYI, when you write 'That is all' and then follow it with another sentence, you look like a jackass.
