Captain America death theory could be happening in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Hey folks, this is just a theory, so take it with a grain of salt. Also, if you haven’t read up on your Captain America, then this article will contain spoilers.

We recently covered that Sebastian Stan, the actor who played Bucky in Captain America: The First Avenger, had a deal where he would be in many more Marvel films, even more than what Chris Evans signed up for. With Stan having more films under the Marvel banner, speculation arose about what the fate of Captain America would be. A theory we thought could work is the death of Captain America, with Bucky taking over as the Star-Spangled hero, which is based on the Fallen Son/Death of Captain America story arc.

In an interview with Variety while promoting Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Evans said “I can’t see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I’m contractually obligated to do.” This would mean that if his contract is up for the Marvel films, we won’t be seeing him in anything else. Then again, nothing is concrete, since he says “that sounds so far away.”

“For all I know, in five years, I might say, ‘Shit, I miss acting.’ Right now, I just want to get behind the camera and make movies.”
