Before he was cast as Bucky Barnes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sebastian Stan audition for the titular role in Captain America: The First Avenger. That obviously ended up going to Chris Evans in what proved to be a piece of pitch-perfect casting by Marvel Studios. Stan hasn't done too badly playing The Winter Soldier as he's appeared in almost as many MCU movies as Evans over the past few years! 

However, you have to believe that the actor has at least some regrets about missing out on starring as the Star Spangled Avenger, right? Apparently not! During a recent interview, Stan admitted that Marvel's decision "worked out" and that Bucky was actually a "much better role" for him in the end.

Stan went on to talk about now playing a "rehabilitated assassin" and confirmed that The Winter Soldier "now goes by White Wolf." With rumours pointing to Evans choosing to walk away from the role of Captain America following the release of Avengers 4 next year, there's a very good chance that the actor will actually be given the opportunity to suit up if the movies end up following the comics.
