Could this mean Steve will be alive at the end of Civil War?

We've been worried that since Chris Evans' contractual obligation to Marvel will be fulfilled, there's a serious chance that Steve Rogers will die at the end of the Civil War films. [Spoiler alert: he does in the comics]. That doesn't mean we'd be saying goodbye to Captain America; after Civil War a few other characters took up the shield. One of them was Bucky Barnes.

But that's not what the actor playing him wants.

Granted, the actors don't get much say in the process. But the way he's talking, it sounds like it's not on the table at all. Here's what he had to say in an interview yesterday when he was asked if he wanted to become Cap (via):
“No, I really wouldn’t, let me tell you, I think about that every day... It’s so not up to me, and to be honest I really enjoy my job over there, I’m really happy going to work and doing what I do. I love the character that I have. It’s up to a lot of different things, and whatever Marvel decides, I’m game.”

So, is this good news or bad news?

I really can't tell. Not only does this not rule out anything... but even if Stan isn't on board, they could easily decide to make Anthony Mackie the next cap (Falcon!Cap had some great story arcs). I just don't know what I'll do if Steve goes away!
I think it would be too soon to switch caps, but again, it's up to the directors to choose, not the actors. I would like a little more development between Bucky and cap, hopefully civil war will showcase that, because I'm sure there would be a lot of thrown off people if they just decided to switch captains right now.
@shannonl5 yeah I caught a glimpse of that leak, not so helpful. Ouuuu so hopefully this week it will magically find its way to YouTube lol
I'm so ready for the trailerrr !! Lol we need promo to start ASAP lol let the fan theories flourish just like they are with suicide squad and bat vs superman. It's quite entertaining
@jibarito yeah, I think now that we're going to start getting promo stuff for Civil War (soon hopefully) we'll be a little more informed.
@shannonl5 spot on, 2 movies (if played well) could be enough for a well built and fully satisfying conclusion. I guess we will have to see how it plays out lol
