Sebastian Stan as the Mad Hatter in Once Upon A Time

According to Deadline, ABC is sizing up the potential of a new series based around Once Upon A Time‘s Mad Hatter, originally played by Captain America: The First Avenger‘s Sebastian Stan.

Stan, however, is unable to commit to a series – possibly because he’ll be returning for Captain America: The Winter Soldier – and ABC are believed to be looking for a new actor to take on the fan-favourite role.

Once upon A Time Season 2 will air on Channel 5 later in 2013. Once Upon A Time Season 1 is out now on DVD, buy it for £24.99 from Amazon.co.uk.
