Following on from the announcement that veteran TV director Kari Skogland will helm the event series, one of the stars of the upcoming Disney+ exclusive “Falcon and Winter Soldier” talks about his hopes for it.
Serving as a follow-up to “Avengers: Endgame,” the six-episode series will get to see Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes finally dealing with living a regular life in the modern world after having been on the run or more recently residing in a Wakandan hut.
Speaking with ComicBook.com, Stan spoke about what’s in store for Steve Rogers’ former BFF in the new run and discussed what he wants to see – including potential hook-ups:
“I think it’s time for Bucky to go out there and have an identity outside of the circumstances that we’ve met him through. So, I don’t know, he might do all kinds of things. He might even go on a date. I don’t know. Scary world out there, you know? Apps, things like that. I don’t know what he’s gonna do. I can’t see him on an iPhone…I think it’s gonna be a lot of dealing with Anthony’s character [Falcon] and Anthony [Mackie] himself which is always another character.”
Several indications are that the show will lean into the buddy comedy humor, playing up the idea of Bucky and Falcon working together, while Daniel Bruhl and Emily Van Camp are reportedly set to reprise their roles from the previous films. Disney+ launches November 12th while the series is expected to debut sometime in 2020.
