The first end credit scene at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier was not the scene that fans were expecting, After two movies of build up and hints many people thought that Bucky would be taking up the shield and becoming Captain America. Instead, Bucky decided to not only willingly freeze himself he does it under the protection of T’Challa in the fictional country of Wakanda.
While on a panel at Wizard World Philadelphia this weekend actor Sebastian Stan was asked about what the next appearance of the Winter Soldier will entail since that scene seems to hint that he will be in Black Panther.
“I don’t know, man. I mean, there’s obviously a very clear answer but I’m not maybe say it, now. Where did he end up at the end of the movie? That’s the movie he should be in. I feel like that would be the natural… But I don’t know.”
It isn’t that surprising that Stan isn’t 100% sure about whether or not he will turn up in the movie but the team up would be an interesting one. T’Challa spent all of Captain America: Civil War trying to kill Bucky only to turn around and not only give him sanctuary but also refer to him as a ‘victim’ which no one in the Marvel universe has done.
The Marvel universe is expanding and with so many characters running around it only makes sense that smaller team-ups would begin to happen. It will make everyone appearing in Avengers: Infinity War a little easier to handle.
Black Panther is due for release on February 16, 2018 and is being directed by Ryan Coogler.
