THR heat vision blog have news that Sebastian Stan will play Captain America’s sidekick Bucky Barnes in 'First Avenger: Captain America'.
In comic book lore, Barnes, a teenaged orphan, was too young to join the army but became one camp’s mascot. When he discovered Captain America’s identity, he joined Captain America as a partner in his Nazi-fighting escapades. The character died in Captain America’s final World War II adventure.
After decades of being “dead,” the character was revived in 2005 by Ed Brubaker and brought back into modern comic continuity, initially as a covert assassin named Winter Soldier but would eventually take the shield and become Captain America.
