Sebastian Stan was a busy man at the TIFF earlier this month, and rightfully so. His upcoming film I, Tonya is already being called an Oscar forerunner and everyone wanted to know more about his role as Jeff Gillooly.
Another role fans were curious about was, of course, the Winter Soldier. With Avengers: Infinity War being released next year and Avengers 4 hitting theaters in 2019, he’s a busy busy guy.
In fact, in talking about being so busy he revealed that Bucky makes it to Avengers 4.
‘I still haven’t read a script for this next one. For this fourth one. All I know is I’m going down there in October, and that’s all I know.’
He went on to say that he’s not even read a full script for Avengers: Infinity War.
‘I still actually haven’t read a script for the last one. [laughs] All I knew was what I was involved in, and I was kept on a very ‘need to know’ basis. Maybe that’s the norm. But it’s a family system. There’s a trust, and there’s a sense of knowledge between the writers and the directors, with Kevin Feige… that shows up.’
He also spoke on what the faith he has in the team behind the MCU when it comes to Bucky.
‘I don’t worry about the character. No matter what they decide, they’re going to do the right thing. … I have ownership over the character, but it’s not up to me do decide what happens. But you know, those guys are going to take it to another level. That’s just what they are going to do. And it’s a culmination of so many things up until this point, which is why they can.’
His statement makes us both incredibly excited and indescribably anxious. We know that Infinity War is going to be the biggest battle the superheroes have ever faced, and deaths will occur, but we aren’t sure we’re ready to let some of these characters go just yet.
However, they have a plan – and they’ve done great with the films so far, so we trust them all. From the guys behind the scenes to those behind camera, it’s all gonna be alright.
