Sebastian Stan Looks Ahead To His Possible Future In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Sebastian Stan Looks Ahead To His Possible Future In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

If (like his comic book counterpart) Bucky makes it out of Captain America: The Winter Soldier alive, there's a very strong chance we'll see him taking on Iron Man, suiting up as the new Captain America and romancing the Black Widow. Actor Sebastian Stan discusses all that and more here...

"It's only in recent years that I've become a fan," Captain America: The Winter Solider star Sebastian Stan revealed in a recent interview with Vulture when asked just how closely he’s followed Bucky’s comic book adventures. "And now I'm really into the story line and I've read all the [Ed] Brubaker stuff, so now I'm really going in and going, 'Okay, this is cool. Wow, I'm lucky this is the character I ended up with.'"

In that storyline, the resurrected Bucky seeks out revenge against Tony Stark following Steve Rogers’ death at the conclusion of Civil War, later taking on the mantle himself. As you might expect, this is the kind of juicy material the actor is very interested in taking on. "I wouldn't mind that at all. Iron Man would definitely outwit the Winter Soldier very quickly, in terms of banter, but after that? Maybe things would turn out a different way." Those of you who have seen the movie will of course know that [SPOILER: HIGHLIGHT TO READ] The Winter Soldier actually assassinated Howard and Maria Stark, perhaps offering up another reason for him and Iron Man to come to blows. [END SPOILERS]

When talk turned to exploring the past between Bucky and the Black Widow as the comic books recently did, Stan added: "Hey, listen, I could talk about the Black Widow all you want! That's an amazing story line. I would love for that to happen.” As for the chance to seduce Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow in the present day, he added: “That is ... something ... one should ... have a chance at doing. Yes." What are you guys hoping the future holds in store for Bucky?

More power to Bucky Banging the Widow.
I do hope it get's to the Civil War or in some form of another Stan takes up the Captains place but, the way the Cinematic Universe is set up, its going to be quite difficult that it will happen.

Just glad that TWS's story is not done yet and it cool that the Falcon is in for a long ride.
AllHailMegatron - 4/2/2014, 11:48 AM
But I do expect him to take over as Captain America
InfiniteMonkey - 4/2/2014, 11:48 AM
CBM, you guys should seriously add an edit feature to our comments. It would be helpful.
Starfox - 4/2/2014, 11:51 AM
@infiniteMonkey - great idea. yeah they need that
marvel72 - 4/2/2014, 11:51 AM
i owned the role of the winter soldier,if they can't talk chris evans back to reprise the role.i wouldn't have any problem with him taking over the mantle.

guys don't read the spoiler if you haven't seen the movie,it'll ruin it for you.

Noooo highlighting from a phone does no good :(
JVH - 4/2/2014, 11:52 AM
In regards to that spoiler....

Dinotron - 4/2/2014, 11:52 AM
Seeing Bucky as Captain America going after Ironman in the MCU would be very interesting. Maybe make Tony semi responsible for Steve's death which compels Bucky to go out for revenge
Spock0Clock - 4/2/2014, 11:52 AM
I've seen the movie, but I missed that particular spoiler...

Hmm... Captain America fighting Iron Man over the Winter Soldier could make a decent premise for a Civil War movie, and also make it a direct sequel to Captain America 2 and thus a totally viable Cap 3 story... Dammit, now I'm lost in dreamland again...
MsDarkPhoenix - 4/2/2014, 11:53 AM
@yoss Is that Cap and Toad??
marvel72 - 4/2/2014, 11:53 AM
why did i miss out "think he" from my last comment,what a douche.
JorEllinator - 4/2/2014, 11:53 AM
I've seen Winter Soldier and I didn't notice that spoiler.
Joementum - 4/2/2014, 11:54 AM
How many films is he contracted for???
BatGOD - 4/2/2014, 11:54 AM
9 If im not mistaken @Joementum

Bon Jovi's about to get his hand busted!
McNyagano - 4/2/2014, 11:55 AM
He was [frick]ing scary. Like a terminator:o


It was during that scene with Zola explaining how Shield had been infiltrated by Hydra. Goes by pretty quick.
BatGOD - 4/2/2014, 11:55 AM
@LP4 from phone higlight, copy and past elesewhere and you can read it that way
Gusto - 4/2/2014, 11:55 AM
He's gonna be kicked in the ass!
And, I'm to blame!
jimoakley666 - 4/2/2014, 11:56 AM
Urgh. That Smiley Virus thing is awful.
m0th3r - 4/2/2014, 11:56 AM
Man...wouldnt an extended Winter Soldier one shot be about the length of the Peggy Carter one...Break him out some more...
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/2/2014, 12:02 PM
Please make it happen

Well, I for one hope there is no Winter SOldier Black Widow romance. Not because I am against the storyline, but because I hope Black Widow meets her maker in AOU
spidey1994 - 4/2/2014, 12:03 PM
Regarding the spoiler, that's one of the things I loved about CA: TWS, that it has the most most impact in the MCU, past and possibly future.
Monitorearthprime - 4/2/2014, 12:04 PM
You have to know that Bucky will take over the Captain America role for awhile.
ChiliConCarney - 4/2/2014, 12:08 PM
Save Civil War until all the characters can play together. Iron Man gave Spidey a Spider suit of armor. Mr. Fantastic helped build the prison that would hold the unregistered supers while Sue and Johnny defected to Cap's side. Cyclops vs. Bishop on the muties side. Villains the likes of Norman Osborn and The Vulture were captured and took part in Operation: Justice Like Lightning which was a plan to reform baddies. Namor raised an army of Atlaneans to help Cap. Everything that happened to Speedball to turn him into Penance. Marvel has already said it would like to release three or four movies a year. Imagine a year or two in which every MCU movie outlines events in the Civil War in which we see the entire plot unfold in a mini-series of movies. Civil War is a universal event that utilizes every living Marvel character at the time. Let's have the whole universe in one place before we delve into it.

Please .... NO!!!!
marvel72 - 4/2/2014, 12:10 PM
@ JorEllinator

i believe its a newspaper headline in the zola scene.

@ spidey1994

exactly,its what made the movie soon makes you rethink everything you've seen to this point in time.
symbiotics - 4/2/2014, 12:10 PM
@yossarian is there a picture in the known universe where she doesn't have her tongue out? She looks like a goat for christ's sake
fortycals - 4/2/2014, 12:10 PM
They don't outright say it but it was implied, when a certain disembodied villain did his cliche exposition
marvel72 - 4/2/2014, 12:11 PM
^ soon should be so,what the f*ck is wrong with me today?
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/2/2014, 12:12 PM
I read the spoiler. Doesn't seem like a spoiler to me. That should be a given.
fortycals - 4/2/2014, 12:12 PM
Sorry @jor
ThrotTheUnclean - 4/2/2014, 12:13 PM
I would love if they did a civil war movie first.
sikwon - 4/2/2014, 12:14 PM
The entire plot is difficult but the ground work is already laid out. They could do it without the FF, spidey or mutants.
Destined - 4/2/2014, 12:15 PM
Interesting stuff...but all this Civil War talk is doing the most right now. They're still building established characters as is. If we do see that storyline, it'll be down the line.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/2/2014, 12:20 PM
I would love Civil War but it wouldn't feel right without Spider-man and Wolverine
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/2/2014, 12:23 PM
But I would geek out if this happened
