With word earlier that Anthony Mackie is in talks to play the Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we now have confirmation that Sebastian Stan will reprise his role as Bucky Barnes.
Of course, per the title of the movie, Bucky is The Winter Soldier — having survived the explosion that put Cap on ice, Bucky becomes a brain washed assassin showing up years later with a metal arm to take on Captain America; with the use of the Cosmic Cube, Bucky regains his memories and fights alongside his friend.
The recent Marvel comic books saw Bucky take the place of Captain America after Steve Rogers was seemingly assassinated.
Should be interesting to see where they go with this one.
The Russo Bros. are directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier which has an April 4th, 2014 release date and stars Chris Evans.
