Hopefully you like The Winter Soldier as much as Marvel hopes you’re going to, because the man himself Sebastian Stan has revealed in an interview with Newsarama that he originally signed a nine-picture deal with the studio. Including Captain America: The First Avenger and the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, that leaves seven more movies for Stan to appear in as the character.
One potential route that Marvel Studios could take, given that star Chris Evans is currently only contracted for three more films, is to emulate the source material wherein Bucky took on the Captain America mantel following the untimely demise of the star spangled man. This is of course speculation on our part, and it’s hard to imagine Marvel Studios killing off Chris Evans on screen. How would you like to see Sebastian Stan appear in future films?
Stan can next be seen on the big screen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which opens internationally starting on March 26 and in North America on April 4. Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Captain America: The Winter Soldier also stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Redford, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Georges St-Pierre, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp and Maximiliano Hernandez.
