Marvel finally confirmed actor Chris Evans (The Losers, Sunshine) will play Cap in the upcoming movie, The First Avenger: Captain America, they have also nailed down the man who will be playing his WWII sidekick Bucky Barnes; Sebastian Stan. Yeah, 'Who's that?' was my gut response too.
A relative newbie, Sebastian's main claim to fame lies in stints on Gossip Girl, the short-lived Kings and the recent Hot Tub Time Machine. While Marvel will only confirm the role is Shaw's, The Hollywood Reporter claims the young actor has being signed to a 5-6 picture deal, which hints at Ed Brubaker's seminal Winter Soldier story arc been positioned for future shield-slinging sequels.
With Cap and Bucky now officially sorted, all eyes turn to who will land the roles of the other Invaders, Sharon Carter and of course The Red Skull.
