Sebastian Stan

Since Marvel Studios started planning their cinematic universe, many of their deals with on-screen talent call for multiple films in their contact. Samuel L. Jackson had the biggest deal with Marvel signing him for nine films, while Captain America: The First Avenger lead Chris Evans has a six film deal. Now some news from Captain America: The Winter Soldier villain Sebastian Stan might hint at why Evans deal isn't as expansive. Speaking with Newsarama (via ComingSoon), Stan revealed that he has a deal that he "thinks" lasts nine films, which makes for some "great job security." But what does that mean for Marvel? Read on!

It's interesting that Stan has a deal that surpasses that of Chris Evans, because in the comic books, when Captain America is killed by Red Skull, it's Stan's character Bucky Barnes who picks up the shield and becomes the star-spangled hero. Could Captain America 3, which is coming in May of 2016 to face Batman vs. Superman at the box office on the same weekend, well after The Avengers: Age of Ultron, bring about the end of Chris Evans as Captain America?

For those counting, after The Avengers sequel, Evans would still have two films in his contact (the cameo in Thor: The Dark World doesn't count). One of them would be Captain America 3, so that would leave room for The Avengers 3, and if that sequel brings Thanos out as the major villain as many have theorized with the whole Infinity Stone arc in progress, that would be a hell of a way for Chris Evans to go out as the red, white and blue super soldier. But who knows what Marvel has in store? Thoughts?

Now wouldn't that be something? But I think they will work with Evans to course correct and keep him on board.

Having Bucky take the mantel could just be plan B. There is no way they set up this massive universe without a whole bunch of contingency plans.

would be a great way to transition to "Bucky Cap"(see death of Captain America comics) when Evans is done. then bring Evans or another actor for Caps return from limbo. Or to bring some weight to a Black Widow film.

Setting up for Civil War perhaps?

I don't think Marvel could ever build up their cinematic universe to the point where a film adaption of Civil War is possible.

They're missing key components for sure, and contracts ending dampens the theatrical effect. Avengers 4: Civil War, starring that guy as cap, Luke Wilson as tony stark, Jonah hill as Thor... But I'm sure they'd change the story and the mechanics of it anyway. I wouldn't count it out

I think Civil War needs to be a mini series cartoon event on Adult Swim or something.

I'd watch it

Ohhh you have me intrigued...What happens in the Civil War storyline that is so epic that even IMAX cannot contain it?!

There's a zillion Marvel characters fighting each other over whether or not superheroes should be required by law to reveal their secret identities.

Civil War would be OK but with the exception of Sam Jackson as Nick Furry I'm not a big fan of marvels ultimate universe.

Jimmy Love on Mar 15, 2014


that's good to hear, considering Marvel essentially put him in the main universe now as well.

he would of been better off staying on Gossip Girls

lorettajohnson on Mar 13, 2014


In no universe ever does this comment make any sense. A CW TV series vs. a NINE movie deal with Marvel? The pay scale difference alone...

Ain't nobody got time for Gossip Girls, Loretta!

I can't wait for Evans to stop playing Captain America. That guy is so boring as an actor.

SkyNet300 on Mar 13, 2014


Why, cause he doesnt have cheesey one-liners or over forced improv? The serious tone they're using is the way to go. Chris Evans does justice to the comics.

says the guy with the terminator salvation avatar....

Actually I think Evans is kinda underrated, he has this stigma of being a comedy/goofy actor when in reality he can do dramatic quite well. Sunshine comes to mind as well as the first cap film.

Jimmy Love on Mar 15, 2014


I thought he did a pretty good job in Puncture. I love him as Captain America.

Blake on Mar 16, 2014


Unfortunately, I think he's actually playing it perfectly and it is just that Captain America as a character is a dry-as-a-popcorn-fart douche.

borninatrailer on Mar 18, 2014


Wow, 9 deal? That's awesome, good for him.

Rock n Rollllll on Mar 14, 2014


I wish I had a time machine and could travel 5 years into the future so I can just watch these movies and avoid all this speculation...
