Marvel’s Captain American ready for the big screen, with Sebastian Stan at his side as Bucky
Just a few weeks after Marvel officially announced Chris Evans will don Captain America’s mask and shield in the upcoming film The First Avenger: Captain America, the comic book company is ready to debut Cap’s sidekick, Bucky. Sebastian Stan (known for roles on Gossip Girl and Kings) will take on the role of Bucky Barnes, whose supporting character position is similar to Batman’s Robin. Stan had originally tried out for the role of Captain America, himself, but studio execs at the Disney owned company felt he was a better fit as Bucky. Filming begins this summer in Europe, with the film slated for a July 22, 2011 release. What are your thoughts on the casting?
