I still can’t believe Sebastian Stan auditioned for Cap. D’you think he walked into the room
And everyone was like
And Seb was like
Who the hell is Bucky?
And the casting people were like
So I’m just lying on the sofa doing not much and my uterus decides to put me in pain, like
Sorry buddy, ya feelin’ left out there?

Fannibals are in for a long wait - NBC’s glorious, gruesome drama series Hannibal won’t return to our screens until 2015.
To make the wait a little easier (or maybe harder?), Digital Spy has 8 delicious teasers for season three, which opens one year after that finale.
Red Dragon is coming
Divided into “two chapters”, the first half of season three will see Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) on the run, with Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) in pursuit, while the second portion will consist of elements from Thomas Harris’s first Lecter novel, Red Dragon.
"It’ll be our version of Red Dragon,” says writer and executive producer Steve Lightfoot. “We know we’re going to lock Hannibal up.”
"I know that I’m instrumental in catching Hannibal," adds Raul Esparza, who plays Chilton. "I know that we’re heading into Red Dragon territory - he’s going to become my prisoner.”
Bedelia is back
Gillian Anderson’s icy Bedelia Du Maurier is expected to feature prominently in season three, with the first episode back depicting her and Hannibal’s new life in Florence, under assumed identities.
"It’s as if it were a new pilot for a series starring Gillian Anderson and Mads Mikkelsen," says showrunner Bryan Fuller. "These characters are out in the world, living under aliases - it’s The Talented Mr Lecter!”
Season 3 is (believe it or not) “more fun”
"It’s always going to be Hannibal - it’s going to be intense,” says Lightfoot. “But I feel there’s more opportunity for fun, for sure. The roof had come in so low and so intense at the end of season two, with all those people under it, and we’ve kind of broken that up.
"People are separated and I feel like there’s room to bring more fun to it. We can’t bring everyone back and have them be even more intense than before, so we’ve got to mix up the attitudes and that’s really exciting in the writers’ room."
Jack Crawford might not be a goner after all
Though many assumed that Laurence Fishburne’s new gig on ABC sitcom Black-ish meant that Jack had met his end in ‘Mizumono’, Steve Lightfoot claims that the plan is for the actor to do both shows.
"In my experience, you normally find a way to make that stuff work," he says. "The great thing with Laurence is he loves the show, he’s committed to it and he’s desperate to be in it, so I don’t think it’ll be a problem."
David Slade is back in the director’s chair for a flashback-heavy episode
Executive producer Slade is expected to return to the director’s chair for season three’s fourth instalment, which will fill in some of the gaps between season two’s finale and where we pick up.
"Bryan seems to think that four is right for my sensibilities - and I trust him," says Slade, who has helmed five Hannibal episodes including ‘Mizumono’.
We’ll get to know Francis Dolarhyde in 2015
Part of entering Red Dragon territory will be exploring the “point of view” of that book’s chief antagonist, one Francis Dolarhyde - previously brought to life by Tom Noonan in 1986 film Manhunter and Ralph Fiennes in 2002’s Red Dragon.
"I’m super-excited about Dolarhyde," says Lightfoot. "He’s the most interesting of the killers in the Harris books for me because he wants to stop.
"What we get that the movies never had is time to give him a point of view and to live with him, as we live with Will - we will spend time in Dolarhyde’s POV and tell his story."
Alana will be a changed woman
"I don’t know what state she’s going to be in," Caroline Dhavernas says of poor, traumatised Alana Bloom. "I know that she will be a changed woman, because what happened to her was so intense.
"I know that she will be stronger - she’s always had a quiet strength, but now I think she might have to protect herself a little more. It’ll be fun to play a harder version of Alana."
Chilton is still alive - and he’s worse than ever
Despite taking a bullet to the face in ‘Yakimono’, the superbly slimy Frederick Chilton will be back this season - and according to his alter ego Raul Esparza, he’ll be “even more unbearable and even more dangerous”.
"He’s going to be 100 times more sure of himself, because he was right," Esparza says. "He feels self-righteous and justified to take revenge."
Post-shooting, he’ll also be sporting what we’re promised will be “a very cool scar”: “I told Bryan I wanted to go all David Cronenberg on this one - a whole Ed HarrisHistory of Violence tribute - I don’t know if we’re going to go that far but I would love it.”
Bryan Fuller has plans to keep chipping away at Chilton for a while. “I think that character’s in it for the long haul,” he teases. “He’s too michevious and bratty and terrible and fun, so I gotta figure out how we’re going to hurt him in time for season four!”
