Ahead of the release of Avengers: Infinity War, a few lucky outlets were allowed access to the set of Marvel’s upcoming blockbuster. One of those outlets was io9 who was able to get a sneak peek of a scene from the film. The scene brings together Captain America, T’Challa, Bucky, Falcon, and Black Widow, who discuss the impending assault by Thanos’ forces.

“How big an assault?” T’Challa asks after the initial greeting.

“Quite an assault, sir,” Cap replies.

“Well, I have my King’s Guard. The Dora Milaje—” T’Challa says, but is interrupted off-screen.

“And a semi-stable 100-year-old man,” adds Bucky.

Bucky (Sebastian Stan) and Steve Rogers reunite with a hug. “How you doing, Buck?” Cap asks.

“Not bad. So… little green men?”

“Not little. Not green,” says Widow.

Falcon expresses some doubts about Bucky’s mental state. “I just want to make sure you aren’t going to snap when someone says ‘baloney sandwich,’” he jokes.

“Not baloney,” says Bucky.

“Eggplant? Rancho Cucamonga?” Falcon retorts, spouting off a few more improvised words in the process. Then he ends with…“I still hate you.”

The interaction between Bucky and Falcon is a nice call back to their relationship during Captain America: Civil War, which is referenced directly in the “I still hate you” line.

The other interesting tidbit is that this scene appears to be the first time Bucky and Steve have seen each other since the events of Civil War. With the third act of Infinity War taking place primarily in Wakanda, we may not see the old war pals reunite until late in the film.

What are your thoughts on this scene? Let us know in the comments below!

Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.
