Sebastian Stan: ‘I didn’t think I’d play Bucky Barnes for 10 years’
Sebastian Stan had just appeared in Black Swan – The black swanwhen a series of fortunate circumstances made him look out over the newborn Marvel Cinematic Universewhen Marvelian superhero rights were still scattered across the majors, ei Marvel Studios Of Kevin Feige they were trying to tidy up the conversation. Stan tells us, referring to Captain America – The first avenger e Captain America – The Winter Soldier:
Certainly I didn’t know I was going to play the role for ten years. I remember I had done a audition for Steve RogersI hadn’t gotten the part, then they called me for this other role, they explained it to me and told me how it could evolve, but it didn’t seem like there was really a definite commitment. The MCU was still in its infancy then, there was a very humble attitude from Kevin and everyone: “We have plans, we want to make these movies, we want to continue building this universe, but we don’t know if it’s going to work, it might not work“.
However I knew that at the end of the story (of Captain America: The first avenger, ed) I had to fall off this trainand they would give me a green sleeve, which meant that I would lost my arm (that is, they would have canceled it digitally via green screen, ed), so as to be ready for the narrative vein of the Winter Soldier. Let’s say it was the only foothold I had to hope to be able to return, but no one had confirmed anything to me. Basically the day we shoot that scene they say to me: “Forget the green sleeve”. And there I thought: “Here, now on the train I’ll just die. I won’t come back”. They actually just didn’t know which arm they were going to keep, we went ahead! (…)
It has always been a interesting characterI felt really lucky when we followed him in the story of Winter SoldierWhy it was easy to empathize in him, in the sense that he is a dude haunted by the past. He has been at the center of all these crimes without even realizing it. (…) The journey of him and of Steve Rogers it’s pretty interesting, they’re both out of time and spacetry to find their way back into a different world they do not understand.
