It's a good thing Chris Evans has no plans to leave the Marvel Cinematic Universe any time soon. Steve Rogers has given up the Cap mantle a few times in the comics with it being picked up by characters like the Winter Soldier and, currently, Falcon, but Sebastian Stan has now said that he does not dream of a day when his role as Bucky Barnes transitions into being Captain America. Stan spoke to We Got This Covered and gave his thoughts on whether or not he wants to see his character take up the patriotic mantle.
"No, I really wouldn't," said Stan. "Let me tell you, I think about that every day... It's so not up to me 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." So while Stan is definitely not ruling out the possibility that he could pick up the shield in a future Marvel film, is also sounds like he's perfectly fine playing the character he's got -- which we'll see again in 2016's "Captain America: Civil War."
Regarding next year's "Cap" film, Stan added that fans should expect "brutal fighting" and "serious fighting like we haven't seen before in any other film," in addition to character and heart that comes along with having a cast filled with a dozen MCU veterans.
Starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Elizabeth Olsen and many more, "Captain America: Civil War" opens May 6, 2016.
