Bucky Barnes had a wild ride in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and ever since "Caption America: Civil War", fans had been wondering if Bucky Barnes will become the next Captain America and if he's ever interested in it.
During an interview with We Got This Covered, Sebastian Stan was asked the same questions and he admitted that there were, of course, times that he thought about it.
"It's so not up to me, and to be honest I really enjoy my job over there, I'm really happy going to work and doing what I do. I love the character that I have. It's up to a lot of different things, and whatever Marvel decides, I'm game." He said.
Recently, Stan posted a photo of him on Instagram holding a shield that has a resemblance with Captain America's shield, except that his shield was silver and the star in the center was red, much like the red star on his character's (Bucky Barnes) silver metal arm. According to Inquisitr, the photo might just be a confirmation that he's actually going to be the next Captain America. To clear things up with those who don't have a clue yet; Marvel and Chris Evans had an agreement that Chris Evans will only be doing six Captain America films. This year's "Captain America: Civil War" is Evan's fifth film as Steve Rogers and his sixth would be the upcoming "Avengers: Infinity War", after the Infinity war, that would be the end of his contract.
Meanwhile, Sebastian Stan signed up for exactly nine films and as of now, he had only done the first three of them. Stan will also appear in "Avengers: Infinity War" with Evans and will be reprising his role as Bucky Barnes. Furthermore, Screen Crush's speculation might be right after all.
"A nine film contract seems awfully large for a supporting player. In the comics, Bucky picks up Captain America's shield after he's struck down by an assassin during the, you guessed it, "Civil War" storyline. Could Marvel be setting up Sebastian Stan to become the second Captain America, replacing Chris Evans and playing the role in future films? Maybe.
