Winter Soldier Sebastian Stan reveals he has a 9 picture deal with Marvel

Mar. 13, 2014by: Alex Maidy

With estimates placing CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER opening with close to $100 million domestically, Marvel has already begun developing a third adventure for Chris Evans' star-spangled hero. But, with Evans recently mentioning he plans to take a break after the end of his Marvel contract, what does that mean for the future of the character? Maybe this news from co-star Sebastian Stan may hold the key.

Stan, the actor who portrays the titular Winter Soldier in the sequel, recently revealed that his contract with Marvel lasts for nine films. That would place his contract on par with Samuel L. Jackson's as Nick Fury and three more movies than Chris Evans.

Here is what Stan told Newsarama:

A lot. I’m certainly not contractually obligated to say that; it’s just the truth. Look, at the end of the day, you essentially take a year of your life, and make it about this movie. It takes six months to shoot it, another two months re-shooting it and going back for ADR [additional dialogue recording], and another three months talking to press about it. So you’d better love what you’re doing, right? You’re giving a year of your life to this. And you’re lucky to do that. In my case, I get to be lucky enough to do this for multiple years. So yeah, you have to learn about the character, love the character, and for me, there was no question—I had to read up, as much as I could. And fortunately, I’m not building from scratch here. There’s plenty of stories and material that tell you that Bucky acts a certain way, and there are plenty of fans who are very opinionated and will help you find out more and appreciate it all. I wanted to make sure I was doing everything right.

But, what does this mean?  Keep in mind if you are not familiar with the Winter Soldier storyline, the following will be a spoiler.

Fans of the comics are likely aware of the fact that for a period of time, Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier donned the Captain America uniform in place of Steve Rogers. With Evans mentioning his desired break from the spandex, could this mean the Marvel Cinematic Universe has found a way to extend the franchise naturally without recasting the lead? It makes perfect sense to continue the Winter Soldier storyline and use him as a villain again with the potential to change him to a hero in later films. With the positive buzz coming out of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, I think we can expect the quality to keep on coming.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER opens April 4th.

Seems reasonable - just a shame they can't do justice to the Civil War storyline that set up the events that lead to Rogers' death without all the Marvel characters in place. There were a few really well connected story arcs in the comics when Marvel were really on the ball with their planning and storytelling.
Still, they could do something similar like they seem to be doing with the Winter Soldier idea that would lead to Evans bowing out at the end of Cap 3.

Is he too big to not be on TV anymore? He's still primarily a TV star right? Im just wondering if he could be a reoccurring villain on Agents of Shield in season 2. It would be cool. Sorry, what with my post in another story about how Hawkeye should have been in the show...I'm just thinking of ways...Shield can have a fighting chance...and then some against what the people behind Arrow are coming up with.

I'm not fully confident in Sebastian Stan's abilities to pull off the part, but I am really looking forward to this and everything we've seen of Cap 2 has been great.

As much as I love Evans portrayal of Captain America, having him killed off in Avengers 3 and passing the shield to Bucky would be a ballsy move on Marvel's part. And it would make sense story wise and financially.

But in the back of my mind though, I hope they don't kill of Evans. I just love the character and portrayal too damn much.

One would presume some of the original Avengers meet their demise in that film, considering that's where their contracts expire, the main villain is Thanos, derived from Thanatos, the Greek word for death. He does take over for Rogers in the comics after Rogers dies. Bucky Cap would be its own thing.

I wonder if the mantle passes in Avengers 3.

Winter Soldier comes over to the good side in Cap 3, is part of the Avengers in Avengers 3, then becomes the new Cap when Steve Rogers presumably dies in that film, ending Evans' contract and starting a new era of Cap.

Would love to see him in more Marvel productions and with a 9 pic deal he'd be a good character to spread around a bit. Perhaps a joint Hawkeye/Black Widow/Winter Soldier flick?

I have never heard this. And it's not really automated if you are ACTIVELY recording it. Maybe I'm behind the times.
