And Marvel Studios’ The First Avenger: Captain America, has finally found Gossip Girl actor Sebastian Stan to join the cast as the supporter James “Bucky” Barnes.
According to MTV news, Stan has agreed to the 2011 film about soldier-turned-superhero Steve Rogers, as well as five or six additional Marvel movies- most likely as part of the The Avengers franchise. The current film will concentrate on the early days of Steve Rogers and his beginnings as Captain America.
The deal for Evans is potentially quite lucrative. Evans has accepted an offer from Marvel Studios to star as Steve Rogers in “Captain America” and nine other Marvel features, including potential sequels, “The Avengers” and other unannounced projects.
With the addition of “Captain America” to his resume, Evans is basically comic book royalty. Along with “Fantastic Four,” Evans will also appear in forthcoming adaptations of “The Losers” and “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.”
