Both Bucky Barnes and the Falcon have taken up the mantle of Captain America in comic books, but the actors who play those two roles aren't in any hurry to replace their fellow actor Chris Evans. In appearances at the Salt Lake Comic Con (and covered by Salt Lake Tribune), Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie shared their opinions on the possibly of one of them becoming Cap.

"I'll say this: They sure like to dangle a cheese in front of my nose a lot," Stan said. "They're like 'Oh yeah, that's where you pick up the shield,' and I'm like, 'Yeah, I've heard that one before. There it is again.'"

Stan, who coincidentally tried out for the role of Steve Rogers/Captain America before seguing to becoming Bucky, said the if he had to choose between himself and Anthony Mackie's Falcon becoming a new Captain America he'd choose himself.

"But I don't know. If I could say one thing, if anyone can have anything to do with it, to make it happen, is you," Stan said, referring to fans such as those in attendance at the panel.

In a seperate panel at SLCC, Mackie had a much different opinion on replacing the First Avenger.

"I don't think we need a new Cap. I don't think Cap needs to change," said Mackie. "I think [Sebastian Stan] would be a great Cap, but then we're left without Bucky. I think I'd be a great Cap, but then we're left without a Falcon."

Both Mackie and Stan will appear alongside Evans in Captain America: Civil War, due out May 6, 2016.
