Recently, while out promoting ‘The Martian,’ The Winter Soldier himself, Sebastian Stan, revealed some information about his character in ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ and what kind of story elements we can expect to see explained in the film:

“Where we find him after Winter Soldier, he’s in a place where he is learning about himself, and he’s discovering – as you saw in the last scene of The Winter Soldier, at the museum – he’s starting to put the pieces together, starting to learn about the past. Where he’s been. What he’s done. And as you’ll see in the next movie, it doesn’t come without a huge price: emotionally, mentally and… yeah, it’s not easy for him to learn about what he’s done.”

Not to mention the fact that during his time as the Winter Solider, he assassinated a lot of people, including the parents of Tony Stark, aka. Iron Man, a fact that Stan does allude to during his comments:

“Without giving anything away, all I can say is that he’s a problem for a lot of people.”

He also claims that Bucky will be dealing with his dysfunctional relationship with Hydra, who despite having brainwashed and used him, kept him alive for over 70 years, and were the only “family” he had:

“You have to remember it is the same Hydra in a sense that is responsible for him still being alive. And what happened before the movie Winter Soldier – and there will be a lot of things sort of made more clear in Civil War about what happened with him – kind of set up this relationship that he may always have with Hydra, one way or another. Because in a way they are like his second family. If that makes sense.”

What are your thoughts about Stan’s statements about Bucky’s mental state during ‘Captain America: Civil War?’ Does he remember every person he killed? Does he confess his crimes to the world? Or is he outed by Steve Rodgers, who along with Black Widow are among the only people in the world who know just how long he has been assassinating high profile victims?
