Actor Sebastian Stan, who played Captain America’s sidekick Bucky in Captain America: The First Avenger, will return as Bucky in the sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which the Russo brothers are directing, and which will be in theaters on April 4th, 2014.
Bucky was supposedly killed in the same explosion that imprisoned Cap in a block of ice, but Ed Brubaker resurrected Bucky for his Winter Soldier storyline. In Brubaker’s saga, Bucky survived the explosion, which cost him his memory. The Russians trained Bucky as an assassin and his path crosses with Cap’s again when Bucky, now known as the Winter Soldier, apparently kills the Red Skull.
Variety reports that Stan has signed a six-picture contract with Marvel Studios and that he will reprise his role as Bucky in the Captain America sequel, which could also see the return of Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull, though no announcement has been made yet.
Plus Titles for ‘Cap’ and ‘Thor’ Sequels and Ben Kingsley Is The Mandarin
At the Marvel Studios panel at Comic-Con, Marvel Studios’ head Kevin Feige confirmed that a Guardians of the Galaxy film was indeed in development and that it will be released on August 1st, 2014, confirming speculation that Marvel would release the Guardians film in 2014 leading up to the release of The Avengers 2. Speaking of The Avengers sequel, Joss Whedon is still undecided about helming it, though he seems a bit more positive in his Comic-Con interviews.
Marvel also announced the titles for its Captain America and Thor sequels. The Captain America sequel will be entitled Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and will debut on April 4th, 2014. The title is a clear indication that Marvel is using Ed Brubaker’s award-winning Winter Soldier storyline as the basis for the film. The Thor sequel, Thor: The Dark World, which is being directed by Alan Taylor, will unspool for the first time on November 15th, 2013.
Shane Black, director of Iron Man 3 was at the panel along with Robert Downey, Jr., Don Cheadle, and Jon Favreau. Black showed footage from IM3 which provided the first glimpse of Ben Kingsley, who is as many have speculated, dressed as The Mandarin. Kingsley’s Mandarin and Guy Pearce actually blew up Tony Stark’s Cliffside Malibu mansion in the footage shown at the panel.
