With less than two weeks until Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters, we’re more excited than ever to see the film 10 years in the works.
One hero we’re most looking forward to is Bucky Barnes. His story took a massive tun in post-credit scenes after Black Panther. We saw Bucky awake, out of his freeze state, and (assuredly) healed by Shuri.
At a convention this weekend, Sebastian Stan talked about that end credit scene where we see Bucky looking peaceful – for the first time in what seems like forever.
‘There was something really actually funny about that scene. It’s definitely better the way it is now, I think. But that scene was at least 8 more minutes long than what we saw. And it was like a more inquisitive Bucky. He was kind of really going, ‘What are they calling me?’ And [Shuri] was telling him a little about it, and they have more of an interaction. And then he walked over and started hanging out with elders and playing with the kids, but you don’t see that.’
Now, maybe it’s just us but we would have loved to see Bucky playing with the kids. Be still our hearts.
There’s also been some discussion on Bucky becoming the White Wolf, which Sebastian himself said not to read too much into. However, you never know with Marvel. They could take a quick left turn and keep all of our heads spinning.
No one will know, in the full capacity, what to expect from any of our favorite heroes until April 27th. That also includes the cast. Sebastian said this about the White Wolf identity.
‘Now, talking about comic books and merging them with the MCU, I want to go back and revisit the Black Panther comics because of the White Wolf situation, and that’s a whole different line. I didn’t even see that really going that way and understanding what that could be. But it’s really clever the way they do it, if you think about it. I look at that and go, ‘Of course. That makes sense, that feels well.’ I don’t know how they think about it.’
What happens next for Bucky remains to be seen, but if he gets to smile and rest easy before fighting alongside his long time best friend Steve Rogers, we’re happy.
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on April 27th.
