Bucky To Appear In Marvel’s Black Widow Spinoff? Sebastian Stan Certainly Hopes So
The Winter Soldier is dead; long live the White Wolf.
In anticipation of Avengers: Infinity War, Bucky Barnes himself, Sebastian Stan, sat down with Bad Taste to discuss the future of his MCU character beyond 2018. And it seems a cameo appearance in the Black Widow movie isn’t off the table.
Asked if he’d like to star opposite Scarlett Johannson’s Natasha Romanoff, Stan didn’t hesitate for a second, and even suggested that Marvel’s pool of writers could potentially draw from the comics when creating Natasha’s solo adventure. Besides, a Bucky cameo/supporting role would also help cement the film’s place in the wider MCU, given it’ll likely be angled as a prequel movie like Captain Marvel before it.
Via Bad Taste:
Yeah, absolutely! Of course! I mean, anytime I’m ready. They have a very nice history in my opinion. It’s very intricate. The truth is he actually taught her in the comic books. He was a teacher to her. It’s all set during a specific, interesting time. The Cold War. It’s all a very spy thriller-ish, noir-ish story. It would be very interesting to explore that on film. I would love if they do that. You know, I hope. Maybe they will.
Maybe they will, maybe they won’t; point is, the standalone Black Widow movie is still incubating in the early stages of development, so it’d be foolish to expect any firm details to emerge prior to the launch of Avengers 4 next year.
What we do know, however, is that Marvel has appointed Jac Schaeffer on script duties ahead of a potential release in 2020. Closer to home, Infinity War is expected to crash into theaters on April 27th.
