When Chris Evans was cast as the new Captain America for this summer’s “Captain America: The First Avenger” and the upcoming “The Avengers,” the news was met with varied reactions from comic book fans.
We’ve got some potentially good news for those of you who don’t quite buy Evans in the role. Well, it’s good news if Sebastian Stan is more your type. Stan, who plays Captain America’s sidekick Bucky in the films, may be getting an upgrade, as the comic books do feature a storyline where Tony Stark promotes Bucky to Captain America after Steve Rogers dies.
When PopWrap’s Jarett Wieselman sat down with Stan to discuss this possibility, he stayed mum, saying, “I’ll let you find that out for yourself.” Wieselman says Stan didn’t seem particularly psyched about the idea – particularly because of the intense training schedule Chris Evans endured to get Captain America-worthy pecs.
