Sebastian Stan channels his Winter Soldier avatar while wearing a mask amid lockdown
It's quarantine time and that means you have to keep your mask ready. While Disney plans to come out with themed masks in a few months, Marvel star Sebastian Stan got a little nostalgic with his. He turned full Winter Soldier in the latest photo shared on Instagram. In the caption, he hinted that the entire setup felt familiar, due to his role in 'Captain America: Winter Soldier'. He wrote, "Well, this seems familiar." Throughout the pandemic, Stan has criticized those not taking precautions of keeping themselves and others safe.
Stan's 'The Falcon And The Winter Soldier' has been stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic. As parts of the US might be opening slowly, there's quite a chance they might be able to finish filming before the summer is over, but it will be on a tight schedule.
The last we saw of the Winter Soldier was in 'Avengers: Endgame', when he saw his friend Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) travel back to the past and live out his life with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell). Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) got the famous shield from an old Captain America.
Recently, in an interview, Stan shared new details about 'The Falcon And The Winter Soldier' and explained the relationship between Bucky Barnes and Steve Rogers. "In a lot of ways, it felt like a movie," Stan said about the process of filming the new series, which is slated for release on Disney Plus. "What I loved about it was that, tonally, it was very much in the same world that 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' was, which was one of my favorite experiences that I’ve ever had, period. So, in a sense, it was grounded and very much in the world as we know it. But, it’s also really jam-packed with a lot of massive, massive action scenes mixed with deep focus on character. These characters are getting so much more mileage for all of us to explore them. We can put them in situations that we’ve never been able to put them in before because you now have six hours as opposed to two.”
He also added thoughts about what Bucky was going through, during the emotional farewell in 'Endgame'.
"Where we arrived with (Bucky) at the end felt more like he was in a place with a desire for some sort of release: to start over, start life again in a way, find out who he is again on his own and leave all this behind," Stan explained.
“That’s where I felt like the character was at the end of 'Avengers: Endgame'. It’s also what he wanted for Steve. Like anybody that ends up traumatized by a war experience, he was affected by it for the rest of his life. So, what felt like a desire there was for a restart — for him and for Steve in a way. It didn’t necessarily feel like the shield was gonna be that. Steve going back in time and saying, ‘I’m gonna take something for me now. I’ve been here for all these guys, and I’ve done the best I could. I’m just a man, and I’m going to go back and try to live my life.’ I feel that is something that Bucky would want for his best friend, and at the same time."
