Actor Sebastian Stan has played the character of Bucky Barnes AKA The Winder Soldier since Captain America: The First Avenger in July of 2011. He has become a fan favorite as the best friend of the former Captain America, Steve Rogers, then brainwashed into being a Nazi/Hydra assassin, then freed from the mind control and fought alongside both Steve and the current Captain America Sam Wilson, formerly known as Falcon. He appeared in all three Chris Evans Captain America films as well as both Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame until eventually co-staring in Falcon and The Winter Soldier tv series on Disney Plus.
Recently when the actor sat down with Screenrant in an interview he was asked about his character’s future and where he would like to see Bucky go next.
“I agree. I mean, we did and I’m not the one to be able to tell you what the next best thing for him is. I haven’t quite figured it out yet. I feel that it was nice to get him to a good place, and having kind of, sort of come back around to accepting himself and his past, and find his own place in the world now, and his own sense of family and values. So, we’ll see what’s gonna top that off. I don’t know.“
Currently it seems that the fate of Bucky is up in the air, at least for the time being. Phase 5 of the MCU is currently being planned so maybe he might appear again. As for the future of Captain America a 4th film is indeed in development but we will instead be following Anthony Mackie as Sam Willson assuming the role of Captain America after Steve Rogers passed the role onto him at the end of Avengers Endgame.
What do you think will happen to Bucky in the future? Do you think he will return?
