SPOILERS AHEAD FOR “CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR”
During the end credits of “Captain America: Civil War,” we saw Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier electing to go back into cryostorage in the Black Panther’s home country Wakanda.
The character elected to do this until Wakandan scientists could remove the leftover Hydra programming still in his head. Of course it also raised the obvious question – could he be popping up in the Ryan Coogler-directed solo “Black Panther” movie which goes into production?
While attending the Wizard World Philadelphia convention this weekend, Stan was asked what upcoming Marvel movie would he like to be in. He responded (via YouTube):
“I don’t know, man. I mean, there’s obviously a very clear answer but I’m not maybe gonna 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 [answer]…But I don’t know.”
That’s not a confirmation of course. Casting on the ‘Panther’ film is well underway, but Stan’s name hasn’t come up in any of the annoucements so far such as Michael B. Jordan being in talks to play the villain while Lupita Nyong’o will play the love interest to Chadwick Boseman’s T’challa.
Filming is slated to begin in early 2017 ahead of a February 16th 2018 release.
