Sebastian Stan has reportedly taken the role as Bucky Barnes, the sidekick of Steve Rogers, in The First Avenger: Captain America!
THR reports this rumor, and as it is being linked to by various other reputable sites, it looks to be the real deal. Stan had originally tested for the Captain America role, but ended up with the role of Barnes after Chris Evans took the role of Cap. While the studio will not confirm whether Bucky will be brought back in modern times as The Winter Soldier, as he was in 2005 in Ed Brubaker’s Captain America comic book run, but sources say Stan has been signed to a five or six picture deal, so that does seem likely.
