The Winter Soldier fame has made Sebastian Stan a household name, and he is well aware of this. He’s also said to be an easy-to-work-with actor as his co-stars have cemented his professional work ethic on numerous occasions.
However, this might not be the same for Sebastian Stan, who craves freedom from a co-star when he’s not around at promotional events and film sets.
Whatever happened at D23 Expo…?
The D23 Expo is the ultimate fan event hosted by Disney that caters directly to the fans, offering them a complete pop-culture experience similar to an amusement-park-type vibe that the fans know and love.
This year, At the D23 Expo, 2022, fans railed up to get everything they were looking for, including sneak peeks, surprises, reveals, and whatever Marvel has in-store in the ongoing Phase 4 & upcoming Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The event was successful by celebrities like Sebastian Stan, Charlie Cox, Brie Larson, and many more.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter at Marvel’s panel at the D23 Expo, stars Sebastian Stan, Wyatt Russell, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus announced Marvel’s Thunderbolts; one of the most anticipated movies of the phase-5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
When asked how it is like reuniting with his Falcon and The Winter Soldier co-star Anthony Mackie at the event, Sebastian Stan jokingly said, “All I can say, freedom tastes bright. Finally, I’m free!”
Hinting that he’s basically on his own now for a while.
“No, I love him…It is weird, of course. That’s you know, it’s a little bit like… what’s that, Stockholm Syndrome or something? When you’re like, ‘I might not… you know…’ But anyway, it’s nice to at least be close to each other,” he added.
But they’ve been buddies for a while now, yes?
All jokes aside, Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie have been in a close working relationship for many years. Accounting to when they first appeared in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier and since then have acted as a promising duo in notable MCU titles like Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: End Game, and the most recent The Falcon and Winter Soldier.
These two have been enjoying each other’s company both on and off-screen, sharing a healthy working relationship for quite a while now.
However, Marvel has decided to call this duo to split for a while as Wyatt Russell and Sebastian Stan would be reprising their roles as John Walker and Bucky Barnes. In contrast, Anthony Mackie won’t be appearing in the 2024 film, Thunderbolts. He would be reprising his role as Sam Wilson in Captain America: New World Order.
Our favorite duo (Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie) might catch the attention of everyone in Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Season 2.
But, as for now, fans will have to wait until 2024 as the Thunderbolts movie is all set to release on July 26, 2024. The last project in phase 5 of MCU to catch Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes and Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson will be Captain America: New World Order.
