In comic books, Bucky Barnes takes over as Captain America after Civil War -- but the cinematic Winter Soldier doesn't want it going down that way.

Speaking to We Got This Covered at a red carpet event for his film The Martian, Captain America: Civil War actor Sebastian Stan downplayed the idea that his character, Bucky Barnes, could take over for Steve Rogers as Captain America as he did in the wake of the comic book Civil War - though he didn't outright dismiss the idea.

"No, I really wouldn't," said Stan when asked if he'd like to take over as Captain America. "Let me tell you, I think about that every day. Look, it's so not up to me, to be honest. I really enjoy my job over there. I'm very happy going to work and doing what I do. I love the character that I have. It's up to a lot of different things. And whatever Marvel decides, I'm game."

As for what fans can expect in Captain America: Civil War, Stan said that the film would be Marvel's most "brutal" yet, but it would still retain its heart.

"I mean, [there is] some serious fighting," said Stan, "Some really brutal fighting like you haven't really seen before in any other film, which I'm really proud to say. And a whole lot of character and heart, cause there's a lot of people that are in the film. But you're gonna get a lot of character from everybody."

Captain America: Civil War hits theaters May 6, 2016.
