Marvel fans who have watched Black Panther might have noticed Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes, formerly the Winter Soldier, being referred to as the White Wolf in one of the post-credit scenes. The scene in question showcased Barnes getting almost cured of his HYDRA conditioning with the help of Shuri and enjoying some time in Wakanda.
In a recent interview with Kinowetter, Stan shed some light on that particular Black Panther post credit scene. He said the scene was originally much longer than what made it to the final cut.
“There was something really actually funny about that scene,” the actor said. “It’s definitely better the way it is now, I think. But that scene was at least 8 more minutes longer than what we saw. And it was like a more inquisitive Bucky. He was kind of really going, ‘What are they calling me?’ And [Shuri] was telling him a little about it, and they have more of an interaction. And then he walked over and started hanging out with elders and playing with the kids, but you don’t see that.”
Furthermore, Stan also talked about his character’s new identity of the White Wolf. He admitted that he was shocked at his new superhero identity.
“Now, talking about comic books and merging them with the MCU, I want to go back and revisit the Black Panther comics because of the White Wolf situation, and that’s a whole different line,” the actor said. “I didn’t even see that really going that way and understanding what that could be. But it’s really clever the way they do it, if you think about it. I look at that and go, ‘Of course. That makes sense that feels well.’ I don’t know how they think about it.”
In the Marvel comics, the White Wolf is codename given to Hunter, who grew up all alone in Wakanda after his parents’ plane crashed there when he was a child. Hunter who was adopted by King T’Chaka grew to lead Wakanda’s secret police known as Hatut Zeraze.
Stan will reportedly make his debut as the White Wolf in the soon-to-be-released Avengers: Infinity War. He will be seen fighting alongside Wakanda warriors against Thanos and his Black Order as they attempt to take over Black Panther’s kingdom and acquire Vision’s Mind Stone.
Avengers: Infinity War is releasing next month on April 27th.
