Watch Out Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan Once Again Says He’s Ready To Wield CAP’s Shield


Comic book readers know that Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier takes up the mantle of Captain America for a time after Steve Rogers ‘died.’ It’s a huge story with lots of twists and turns, but while the real Cap was working his way back to our world, Bucky was Captain America. With a few little hints and nods at the character’s ultimate fate in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, some fans expect to see Bucky fulfill his comic book role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe sometime. While we don’t know what Chris Evans will do when his contract runs out, Sebastian Stan said he’s more than willing to wield the shield. In fact, he’s ready to do it right now.

While appearing this weekend at Wizard World Philadelphia, Stan was asked by a Winter Soldier fan if he wanted to be Captain America one day. The actor once again confirmed his willingness, but he reiterates it’s not his decision:

Yes! Yeah, I’ll do it right now. Look, it’s not up to me. I’m just showing up when they’re calling me. I means that’s it. But I wouldn’t mind a little Black Widow/Winter Soldier story happening.

It seems entirely possible that Bucky will be Captain America within the next few years. Evans‘ only has a few more movies left on his contract, while Stan still has 7 or more left on his. Add to that Frank Grillo‘s comments that Crossbones is coming back with a vengeance, and we might see him outside of the standalone Captain America films. Crossbones played a large role in the Death of Captain America storyline, so that is another little piece of evidence in the ever-expanding case of Bucky taking up Cap‘s mantle. What do you think? Do you expect the switch to take place after Captain America 3/Avengers 3?
