Barnes has served as a replacement Captain America for the past few years. However, Steve Rogers is set to retake the mantle when Ed Brubaker launches a new Captain America ongoing series this July.
The current Captain America series will subsequently be rebranded as Captain America and Bucky, however it is still unknown what Bucky's role in the modern Marvel Universe will be moving forward.
"He will be appearing in Captain America and Bucky. The first arc is the life story of Bucky Barnes, pretty much from the army bases and streets of Depression-era New York all the way up to the present," Brevoort said, according to IGN Comics. "But quite honestly part of the reason we're doing that is we don't really want to say anything about Bucky and what's going on with him just yet."
"I just hope people have faith that we know what we're doing," he continued.
Regular series writer Ed Brubaker also confirmed that the first few issues of the new Captain America will focus almost exclusively on a core cast of Steve Rogers, Sharon Carter, Nick Fury and Dum Dum Dugan.
Brubaker says he is enjoying being able to write Rogers again, and admits that he never intended for the character's death to last so long.
"I never wanted to not be writing Steve Rogers as long as I did," Brubaker added. "It was just the circumstances of moving storylines around in my plans."
Captain America #1 launches this July.
