Chris Evans and Captain America get a sidekick with Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Now we’re starting to have a movie. First, we heard news that Hugo Weaving was playing the villain Red Skull in the upcoming CAPTAIN AMERICA movie. Then we got the official word that Chris Evans was going to be the main man himself, Captain America. And it shouldn’t be ignored that we’ve heard several rumors about who will play the female lead, with rumors linking Keira Knightley and Emily Blunt to the project. Today, we get word that Captain’s sidekick, Bucky Barnes will be played by ‘Gossip Girl’ alum Sebastian Stan. Sebastian has done a series of films lately, including HOT TUB TIME MACHINE and the upcoming BLACK SWAN.
For those that aren’t aware of the comics, Bucky Barnes was sort of a mascot during WWII and then ended up teaming with Captain America once he learned his true identity. In recent years, Marvel revived Bucky and turned him into the assassin Winter Soldier. As of now, we don’t know which direction the movie will take the character.
