In less than a year, the star spangled man with a plan will be returning to the big screen in Captain America: Civil War (A.K.A. Avengers 2.5). The film has a lot of hype building around it, much like every Marvel film, but one question is beginning to be raised among fans. Will Captain America die?

This is not as unreasonable a question as it sounds. One of this things that Civil War is most famous for in the comics was the death of Captain America at the end, and Bucky rising to take up the mantle. However, in recent years, another figure has taken up the shield, Falcon.

With this in mind, during Salt Lake Comic Con, Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie were asked whether they would step up to fill the role of Captain America.  Mackie’s response was: “I don’t think we need a new Cap. I don’t think Cap needs to change… I think (Sebastian Stan) would be a great Cap, but then we’re left without Bucky. I think I’d be a great Cap, but then we’re left without a Falcon.”

Stan followed this up by saying: “I’ll say this: They sure like to dangle a cheese in front of my nose a lot. They’re like ‘Oh yeah, that’s where you pick up the shield,’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’ve heard that one before. There it is again.’ But I don’t know. If I could say one thing, if anyone can have anything to do with it, to make it happen, is you.” 

The two do seem reluctant to take up the role, and, to be honest, I don’t think it will happen in this film. Avengers: Infinity War is still on the horizon, and I would be stunned if Evans was not going to be involved in that somehow. Still, this could all be misdirection, and one of these men may be the new answer to the question, “Who’s strong and brave, here to save the American way”?

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
