SEBASTIAN STAN IS CAPTAIN AMERICA'S SIDE KICK! IS EMILY BLUNT CAPTAIN'S GIRLFRIEND?

After Chris Evans has been officially confirmed as Captain America, the producers have found him a side-kick as well. Although it was reported that he had auditioned for the main role, it seems that young actor Sebastian Stan wasn't meant to be the leading super hero, but his best friend Bucky Barnes. According to "Variety", Bucky's character has the key role in the Captain America comic books. He's an orphan who discovers Captain America's true identity and partners up with him to fight the Nazis. As a former KGB super assassin, he later becomes the covert assassin Winter Soldier. Just like Chris Evans, Sebastian has also signed a deal to appear in possible sequels to "Captain America" and other Marvel titles such as "The Avengers".

Marvel Studios has also made an offer to Emily Blunt for the female lead in "The First Avenger: Captain America". She will apparently play Captain America's girlfriend, Peggy Carter. Peggy Carter was Captain's girl during WWII and an agent who helped the French out with their underground resistance. Now, as it turns out, Emily has some other projects in mind and will probably turn this offer down. This is strange, since she has already turned down the role of Black Widow in "Iron Man II" and plus she's a friend of the film's director Joe Johnston with whom she worked in "Wolfman". Is she just picky, or is she just waiting to be offered the ultimate super heroine role - the role of Wonder Woman???

  1. Interesting that they signed Sebastian for other possible Marvel superhero movies. Bucky Barnes may be important in Marvel comics, but I just don't see his potential for future films. Not at the rate they're making movies so far. Maybe in some 6-7 years from now. They would have 3 or 4 new Marvel comic movies by that time.

    About emily Blunt... I guess she's just picky. Maybe she doesn't want any kind of "action" role.
    Also, I wouldn't hold my breath if I were her (or any other actress) for getting a role of Wonder Woman. At least not for another 2-3 years. Warner Bros is slowly, very slowly, catching up with Marvel's rate of making comic book movies. At this rate, Wonder Woman film is still far away.

  2. Yep, either she's picky or she just has no taste (having in mind her choice to star in such bad movies as GULLIVER, WOLFMAN...)

  3. According to IMDb.com she's already turned it down.

  4. The news was out only yesterday, so nobody is still sure whether she'll turn it down or not, but I'm thinking she probably will.
