Sebastian Stan is opening up about Disney+’s upcoming The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and revealed his thoughts about Steve Rogers handing over the Captain America title to Sam, instead of Bucky.
“Steve is saying to Bucky… ‘I’m not going to put this thing on you. We’re both going to live our lives – the lives that were actually taken from us back in the ’40s when we enlisted’”, the actor explained to THR in a recent interview.
Sebastian goes on, “That’s where I felt they were at the end of the movie [Avengers: Endgame]. I don’t think there’s a desire or any conflicted thoughts about taking on that mantle.”
“Sam, to me, was always the clear man to take on that mantle for numerous reasons, which also comes with so much more baggage that’s going to be explored in the show,” he adds. “…at the end of Endgame, for either Steve or Bucky, it’s really not about the shield.”
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is expected to premiere next year on Disney+, however, production on the series was shutdown in March because of the pandemic.
