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!
