He's not gonna have more than a minor role in BP, I don't think Marvel would do it after taking such care to create a big all black cast. They would get backlash if out of all of those characters, Bucky is the biggest hero next to T'Challa. And I agree. But 95% he's getting out of cryo in BP. Also, maybe they already filmed that when they filmed CW post credits scene? Just so he is looking the same. And now he would film a couple of scenes for the actual movie looking like he does now.
Totally 100% agree. Small role, for sure…and mostly just to push the narrative forward.
And you know what? That makes perfect sense, them having already filmed him coming out of cryo back when they filmed him going in - no need to try and find the same wardrobe and all that. In fact, since there’s no way we’ll know for the next year, I’m going with that idea all the way. And whatever extra bit he’s got in the movie will be a possible short or shortER haired Bucky. Again, can’t imagine he’ll be in BP for more than a scene or two, as you suggested…just really. small. role.
Side note: How much of IW do y’all think he’s going to be in? I know the Russos love him and all…but they are throwing everything but the kitchen sink into this film - idk maybe they’re throwing the kitchen sink in there, too…there’s been no confirmation. Bucky had 8 minutes of screentime in TFA and 8 minutes-ish in TWS. He had 21 minutes in CW. None of those movies had as many cast members as IW is going to have - all of GotG, Dr. Strange, Avengers…one time there was rumor of 67 heroes. ffs Would it be wrong to guess that Bucky’s going to be back to his 8 minutes?
