Since the release of Captain America: Winter Soldier, Sebastian Stan has gained ample praise for his role as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier. In a recent interview, he praised the character of The Riddler, one of Batman’s most infamous enemies.
The topic came up during a Q & A at Wizard World St. Louis. When asked who he’d like to play in the DC Universe, he quickly answered, The Riddler. Check out his full answer below:
My favorite DC character has always been the Riddler, And, honestly, I would not know what to do with that character at all. But it’s such a crazy, crazy character. Maybe I wouldn’t.
He seems skeptical of himself as the iconic villain due to the crazy demeanor of The Riddler but if the opportunity presented itself, I’m sure he’d take it. With such a prominent role in the MCU, I doubt it will happen but nothing is impossible in the world of cinema! Following that question, Stan was then asked what his thoughts were on taking on the title of Captain America. Not only did he answer the question, but he also talked about his love for the role as the Winter Soldier. Stan answered:
I mean, yeah I would love that one day, absolutely, I don’t know when that day would be, and I just think…it would be a very different Captain America you know, you wouldn’t be able to have the same Captain America as you have right now because he’s a different guy. Again, there’s this issue where we’ve got to get him to be trustworthy enough for them to give him that responsibility, you know, to fill those shoes, and those are hard shoes to fill. So I think it’s possible, I really do, but it just has to make sense and we might need a little more time.
This shows that the possibility isn’t out of the question. IF they’re going to give Bucky the role, they know they will have to make it a smooth transition so it’s all up to the big names in Marvel. Stan hasn’t forgotten what got him where he is however. Sebastian Stan then expressed his love for his role as Winter Soldier by saying:
I’ve been enjoying rediscovering him in the last few movies, including Infinity War, because he started out a certain way and then it was such a hard left with Winter Soldier, it was immediately like a whole different ballgame, So now it’s been fun going back a little bit and finding different things that we discovered in that early movie and putting them back in little by little, finding out where is he now.
Stan really puts his all into the role and does it perfectly. He plays an amazing Winter Solider and is one of my personal favorite parts of the MCU. We’ve seen him go from enemy, to friend, to enemy, and back to friend! What an arc for a character. I am extremely excited to see him in Infinity War and maybe, just maybe in Black Panther! Would you like to see Stan play The Riddler or take on the role of Captain America? Let us know over at SuperBroMovies!
