Fan Favourite Character Confirmed To Join Avengers: Infinity War
It starts filming soon!
While DC are currently hogging the superhero headlines with Suicide Squad, Justice League and Man Of Steel 2, Marvel is gearing up for the next phase in its masterplan, with cameras set to begin rolling on Avengers: Infinity War in a couple of months time. And according to new reports, we can look forward to seeing an old favourite return to the fold, with Sebastian Stan confirmed to be filming on the project early next year.
Stan plays Bucky Barnes AKA the Winter Soldier in the Marvel universe, and last we saw of him, he was voluntarily freezing himself at the end of Civil War to avoid being used as a weapon against his will.
However, it will be all hands to the pump when the villainous Thanos comes calling, and it seems that the Winter Soldier will be out of storage sooner rather than later.
Given that Civil War saw him stashed away in the Kingdom of Wakanada, we’d assumed that he’d also be playing a major role in Black Panther, but with Infinity War coming along a few months earlier, it looks like we won’t have to wait so long to see him defrosted…
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and co-starring the usual Marvel suspects, Avengers: Infinity War will open in the UK on 27 April 2018.
