Chris Evans plays Steve Rogers and Sebastian Stan plays Bucky

In anticipation of this Sunday's Captain America: The First Avenger thirty-second Super Bowl XLV TV Spot, director Joe Johnston talked about what we can expect out of Sebastian Stan's sidekick James 'Bucky' Barnes.

Here is what he had to say:

"Sebastian Stan brought something really interesting and slightly on the dark side and really compelling to watch - when he's on camera, you're fascinated by watching him. In a great cast, I thought he really stood out and brought some unexpected things to the role. Everyone brought something to the movie and a lot of them brought something great but I was most pleasantly surprised by what Chris Evans brought and what Sebastian Stan brought in a much smaller role as Bucky."

Joe Johnston went onto talk about Bucky's dark side:

"Sebastian Stan has a dark, slightly quirky side to him - and that's the case when he's in character or not - and he brought that to this movie. You know, he was originally up for the lead, for the Steve Rogers role, but he didn't have quite the same earnest, I-want-to-fight-for-my-country aura that Chris Evans has for this role. Sebastian has a little bit of the bad boy, he's a little bit of the James Dean type and that goes somewhat counter to the general perception of Steve Rogers. He wasn't quite right for Captain America, but I think he's perfect for Bucky because, really, he can have a little bit of that dark side."
