Okay, so you probably read that headline and, quite frankly, wondered where the news was. Who isn’t a fan of Bucky Barnes? We know, trust us, we get it. However, when Chance The Rapper took to Twitter yesterday, he ‘upped’ his fan status.
We aren’t saying that we want anything to happen to Steve Rogers’ Captain America. We love Chris Evans as the hero and we can’t really imagine anyone else embodying him so well. However, it IS possible that we lose Evans, in some capacity, as Captain America.
We’re hoping he lays down the shield, hands it off in some extremely emotional sense, and takes a new approach for a while. We’d even tolerate him having to give up the title because the battle against Thanos was so rough that he needs to go completely off the map.
Honestly, we’ll take anything except him dying.
When it comes to Captain America, we won’t have another Steve Rogers, but there could be a new way to take on the persona. One way is for Bucky to take the shield and responsibility from Cap. It’s an idea we’re quite fond of, ourselves.
So is Chance The Rapper.
Bucky 4 New Cap 🤞🏾

A lot of the Twitter replies read much like our thoughts on the matter. People don’t want to lose Evans, but many would be okay with Bucky stepping up (if and) when the time comes.
Bucky’s story is intricately woven with Steve’s, and while they’ve experienced so much separately, it’s almost like they’re in the make up of one another. They each help the other to find a sense of home.
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on April 27th and with it begins the journey to the new MCU.
