Something I’ve never noticed before.
Watch the little grimace Bucky makes after he says, “But I knew him.”
And then watch his expression after he says, “My name is Bucky.”
It’s harder to see in the CACW scene because he’s looking down, but it’s the same expression.
In the bank vault, he has a question… he knew that man on the bridge. He heard the name Bucky
and he felt reality as he knew it shift and he’s still trying to lock
onto fleeting images in his mind, images he doesn’t know are actual
memories. He only knows he wants an answer and is willing to endure pain
from a beating to get it.
That’s Bucky, quietly, stubbornly, adamantly refusing to be denied.
And with Zemo, Bucky knows a lot more about who he is and
what he chooses to call himself, and it’s not James, at least not as
this little pissant of a psychiatrist is using it. Again, that’s Bucky, quietly, stubbornly, adamantly refusing to be denied.
Seb knows this character, down to the smallest detail.
