So now that we’ve seen Chris Evans in his various costumes for Captain America: The First Avenger, what about his sidekick Bucky Barnes? Sebastian Stan (Gossip Girl) is playing Barnes and we finally have a shot of him. It’s not a particularly good shot since it’s a close-up and is a low-resolution scan from Première magazine, but it’s a shot nonetheless. The magazine also has a look at some HYDRA soldiers as well as a pre-transformation Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) in silhouette.
Hit the jump to check out the images. Captain America: The First Avenger opens in 3D on July 22nd. [Update: We’ve updated the story with a high-resolution image of Sebastian Stan as Bucky]
Here’s the official synopsis for Captain America: The First Avenger:
Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige will produce CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER. Alan Fine, Stan Lee, David Maisel and Louis D’Esposito will executive produce. The film will be released in the US on July 22, 2011 and distributed by Paramount Pictures.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America.
Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy’s earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment… Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the Super-Solider Serum and bombarded by “vita-rays.” Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later, he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and as leader of the Avengers.
