If there’s one thing that can be agreed on between the Falcon and the Winter Soldier, it’s that they both care about Steve Rogers … and also hate each other.
Following their teamup in Captain America: Civil War, fans were quick to notice how well Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes played off of one another, and how funny it was that they actively despised each other. Some fans have said they want a film of the two heroes just bickering, and it’s something even Winter Soldier actor Sebastian Stan can get behind.
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight on the set of Avengers: Infinity War, Stan likened their relationship to a buddy comedy from the 1980s or ’90s, specifically citing Midnight Run and 48 Hrs. Asked about the possibility of a spinoff movie starring him and Falcon actor Anthony Mackie, Stan responded, “Absolutely, and the right people to make that happen are certainly within feet of us right now.”
As Sam’s first meeting Bucky involved the cyborg mercenary actively trying to kill him, it’s only fitting that he throw any out any insult that he can. The two will reunite in Infinity War when Captain America’s team arrives in Wakanda, where Bucky has been recuperating and having his mind cleared of Hydra programming. While everyone’s glad to see Bucky free of his programming, Sam will still let it be known he still hates him.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Tom Hiddleston, and Josh Brolin. The film arrives April 27.
