Sébastien Stan has Has held the title of The Winter Soldier in the MCU for 10 years now, and his screen time has increased significantly with the introduction of the Marvel series this year and his role in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Being a recurring Marvel character certainly carries weight on an acting resume, but his role as a comic book character may not end with Bucky Barnes. Ed Brubraker, one of the co-creators of Winter Soldier, has now revealed that he has an eye on Stan for another of his comic book creations.
In an interview with Hollywood journalist, Ed Brubaker says Sebastian Stan would be “perfect” to play the main character in his new Bold graphic novels. While Brubaker gives credit to Stan’s portrayal of The Winter Soldier, he also says that the Captain America: Civil War actor is quite fit for the role, and that would allow him much more screen time than his role as Bucky Barnes. Here’s what the comic book author says on the subject, exactly:
It is true that in terms of appearance, Sebastian Stan looks a lot like Reckless, and once Hollywood is done with him, he could be pretty much the spitting image of graphic novel character. Stan is also used to playing gruff characters, rougher around the edges, which Reckless certainly is.
Even if Bold was created last year by Ed Brubaker and his creative partner Sean Phillips, the graphic novel is set in the ’80s and is truly a pulp fiction novel that draws inspiration from the noir crime genre. Ethan Reckless is a detective in Los Angeles with a heartbreaking past, and he’s a character who seems to be Sebastian Stan’s ally.
While Bold has yet to advance to Hollywood as an enlightened project, if Sebastian Stan had the chance to star in a series or movie, it wouldn’t be the first time he would be transformed to play a character from another time. Stan recently finished filming Pam & Tommy and was transformed into a young Tommy Lee for the limited series. There is no release date set for the limited series just yet, but it will most likely be found on Hulu next year. You can also discover Stan in his next film The 355, which hits theaters on January 7 next year.
