A character arc in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) that I have enjoyed watching has been the one that Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier has gone through. The shift from antagonist to anti-hero to, in my eyes, a protagonist has been great to see. Sebastian Stan has done a terrific job in portraying this character and making his relationship with Captain America feel genuine. I have also enjoyed Falcon, played by Anthony Mackie, and the friendship he has developed with Captain America.
Avengers: Infinity War
Both Falcon and Winter Soldier will be back for Avengers: Infinity War. Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan discussed the film with journalists who attended a set visit last year and Anthony Mackie had this to say on how different it was working with the Russo brothers instead of Joss Whedon:
“You know the great thing about their style of directing is it’s really actor-first. It’s really supportive of your craft and your process, and what you bring to the characters. The best thing about working with Marvel is they know what everyone does well, and what you don’t do well. So they put you around people who do well, what you don’t do well. They put us in a position to win, every single time with every single scene. And [screenwriters] Markus and McFeely work in that same vein. They know how to get the beats between the two of us. They know how to get to be between him and Cap. They know how to work Black Panther into it, and all of our newfound surprise, arriving here in Wakanda. So all of that works in there.”
Sebastian Stan gave his thoughts on what it would be like to interact with other characters in Avengers: Infinity War:
“I don’t know. It’s going to be challenging for sure because there’s so many different tones to these films and that all of these characters carry. So I think it’ll be interesting to see how tonally everybody fits into the same world”.
