Avengers: Endgame marks the end of MCU’s 22 movie journey and the final film does give a satisfying wrap up to several characters’ arc, but not every storyline got its perfect ending. A lot of fans’ have been puzzled over the studios’ plans for Captain America and how the character’s arc from Endgame would affect Bucky and Sam in the upcoming Disney+ series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Recently, actor Sebastian Stan also spoke about his role in Avengers: Endgame at MCM London and as expected, it eventually led to some questions about Bucky’s relationship with Cap–especially their last interaction in the final film of Phase 3.
“When I found out that we were doing that scene, which was probably about 40 minutes before it was filmed, I said look don’t you think if this is really happening, wouldn’t there be something more to be said?” Stan said during MCM London this weekend. “But then the Russos were like, ‘Look, you guys have had that conversation, you’ve had that moment. You know what’s going to happen, you know what he’s doing.’ And so that last interaction there has got a lot of subtext, which is like ‘Alright. Here we are. I’ll see you when I see you.'”
A section of the fandom was also disappointed that Steve Rogers passed on the mantle to Sam instead of Bucky. But Stan doesn’t see it as Steve overlooking his best friend but rather giving Bucky the chance to explore his own journey the same way he did.
“I think it makes a lot of sense,” Stan said. “It is very different from the comic book. I really love the enthusiasm that so many people felt with people wanting Bucky to get the shield, but it just isn’t best for him to get the shield if you think about it… In a way, for me, Steve not giving him the shield was a way of setting him free and setting himself free. These guys have been forever in a way tied to this duty since the ‘50s and carrying on this mantle. In a way, they are both sort of free in an extent now, and Sam is a much trustworthier character.”
The actor later went on to explain Bucky’s reaction to Steve Rogers’ decision to stay in the past.
“He was happy for him, obviously,” Stan explained. “This man has fought for this woman for a really long time. In my opinion, he was happy.”
Avengers: Endgame is currently in theaters.
