Spoilers ahead if you’re the one person who has yet to see “Black Panther.”
Marvel threwa curveball with the post-credits scene of
Stan’s character —— has been the Winter Soldier up to this point. But thanks to Shuri’s help in the time from to the end of “Black Panther,” he’s not only free of his conditioning, he’s now known as the White Wolf.
That quick little note in the post-credits marked a big shift for Bucky. Theis a Marvel character — it’s the name given to a white man named Hunter who grew up in Wakanda after his parents died in a plane crash there. Hunter was ultimately adopted by King T’Chaka, and became known as the White Wolf.
But now Bucky is the White Wolf. In the comics, Bucky has a different future that could still happen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it sounds like SebStan might’ve been expecting *that* storyline instead of White Wolf.
Sebastian Stan just had a great little video interview with— alongside Tom Hiddleston (Loki) and Letitia Wright (Shuri). During the chat, they talked about the comic book source material, and Stan segued into talking about the White Wolf:
“Now, talking about comic books and merging them with the MCU, I want to go back and revisit the Black Panther comics because of the White Wolf situation and that’s a whole different line, so I didn’t even see that really going that way and understanding what that could be. But it’s really clever the way they do it, if you think about it. I look at that and go, ‘Of course. That makes sense, that feels well.’ I don’t know how they think about it.”
Check out more from:Sebastian Stan also noted that his post-credits scene in “Black Panther” was originally longer (via ):
“There was something really actually funny about that scene. It’s definitely better the way it is now, I think. But that scene was at least 8 more minutes long than what we saw. And it was like a more inquisitive Bucky. He was kind of really going, ‘Why do they call it these?’ And [Shuri] was telling him a little about it, and they kind of walk in a direction, and then he walked over and started hanging out with elders and playing with the kids, but you don’t see that.”
There’s a good chance we’ll see some of that whenMay 8, then Blu-ray/DVD on May 15. Extras will include deleted scenes and featurettes, and of course a gag reel.
Bucky will be back as White Wolf inwhich opens in theaters April 27.
