The MCU had another winner on its hands with the recent release of the Disney + miniseries, The Falcon and the Winter SoldierSebastian Stan stars in the show as Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier, alongside Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson aka Falcon. In an interview with Collider, Stan was asked if a second season of the show is currently being planned, and the actor admitted that he had no information on the topic.
“No we don’t [heard about a second season], and I’ll tell you honestly we didn’t. As usual, I am not sure what to do next. We never really do it. Maybe some people might [Robert] Downey [Jr.] I used to not know … I have nothing but complete, total gratitude for the opportunities I have been given [MCU showrunner Kevin Feige]And especially just Anthony [Mackie] and I, now with the show again, got on my side to reinvent this character, find new nuances about him. So it’s kind of a win for me in so many ways. “
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier sees Bucky and Sam struggling with Steve Rogers exit from his Captain America character. Sam must decide whether to accept the shield Steve passed on to him while struggling with money troubles. Meanwhile, Bucky tries to find a sense of normalcy as a civilian, even though his past as a hitman continues to haunt him.
Fans and critics alike have praised the show for spotlighting characters and events that couldn’t be covered in the MCU movies. Still, despite the rave reviews on the show, Sebastian Stan claims that no one at Marvel Studios takes their success for granted, and the shows are designed to end with each new season without assuming another season is guaranteed.
“I get the impression that nobody in that studio gets caught up in the noise. They just love the work. They are just always grateful to you. What, when you watch the movies, a lot of the endings of the movies. [are] like, “Well, this could be it, but maybe we’ll get lucky and get another!” There’s never been, “Well, yes, we’re Marvel, we’ll just hit another home run.” There’s always something about embracing the last movie for what it is and the hope of a continuation without expectation, and that’s very hard to do at that level. “
While a second season may not be on the agenda, at least fans can take comfort from Stan’s comments The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will provide a satisfying conclusion rather than ending on a cliffhanger in anticipation of Season 2.
Directed by Kari Skogland, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier stars Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, Wyatt Russell, Noah Mills, Carl Lumbly and Daniel Brühl. New episodes debut Fridays on Disney +. This news comes from Collider.
