Sebastian Stan Reveals Falcon & Winter Soldier Series Details
Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes are getting their own limited series on the Disney+ streaming service: Falcon & Winter Soldier. Although the plot has been kept under wraps, actor Sebastian Stan — who plays the latter hero in the MCU — has teased what might happen in the show and revealed when filming begins.
ComicBook.com reports Stan revealed his expectations for the series at a recent comic convention, likely Italy’s Jus In Bello, where the actor was this weekend. “I think it’s time for Bucky to go out there and have an identity outside of the circumstances that we’ve met him through,” Stan said. “So, I don’t know, he might do all kinds of things. He might even go on a date. I don’t know. Scary world out there, you know? Apps, things like that. I don’t know what he’s gonna do. I can’t see him on an iPhone…I think it’s gonna be a lot of dealing with Anthony’s character and Anthony himself which is always another character.”
Stan also revealed the series would begin filming in October, though he did not give an exact date. The series will reportedly film in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Winter Soldier actor also praised his co-star, Anthony Mackie, saying, “I have a blast working with Anthony. It’s very funny half the time. It’s just gonna be a lot of that move your seat up thing, I’m gonna tell him that if we’re gonna be in the car, I’m gonna be in the passenger’s seat and he’s gonna be in the back, or I should be in the driver’s seat.”
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier both appear in Avengers: Endgame. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the film stars Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Chadwick Boseman, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie. The film is now in theaters.
