Don't Expect To See This Marvel Hero In Black Panther

[Potential SPOILERS For Black Panther below.]


Despite playing a key role in Captain America: Civil War, and his presence in the Wakanda-set post-credits scene, the Winter Soldier will not be appearing in Black Panther. With Bucky Barnes still prone to manipulation thanks to his Hydra days, the hero-turned-unwitting assassin willingly chose to go back into cryo-sleep. This time however, instead of being locked away for later use by Hydra, he was brought to Wakanda and given protection under the watchful eye of T'Challa.

With his current status confirmed, it seemed likely that Bucky would have at least some role to play in the upcoming standalone Black Panther film. Now, however, it has been confirmed that Bucky Barnes will presumably remain on ice throughout T'Challa's solo adventure.

GMA spoke to Sebastian Stan about the possibility of the Winter Soldier playing a role in the goings-on of Wakanda, and the actor confirmed he does not have a part. The explanation for his absence may well have to wait for Avengers: Infinity War.
