We haven’t seen too much of a preview of the return of Sebastian Stan as the Winter Soldier in ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ but Anthony Russo is making it sounds like he is going to be getting ARMed for battle. We know that once Bucky Barnes was turned into an elite assassin one of the upgrades he received was a robotic arm that was destroyed by Iron Man during the closing fight scene for ‘Captain America: Civil War‘.
While it is unclear if Bucky’s condition will be touched upon in ‘Black Panther‘ or not, we’ve gotten a strong tease that not only will his arm be rebuilt, but it’ll be even better than before!
The answer came during a brief fan Q&A where Anthony Russo weighed in on the missing appendage by stating:
“For everyone who’s seen Captain America: Civil War, they know Bucky was taken in by T’Challa in Wakanda. I think that you know, we catch back up with him after he’s been there for a while, and if there’s an influence on his arm, it may perhaps have to do with that country that he’s been spending time in.”
It is unclear if this means that the arm will be stronger, have newly built in technology, or possibly be made out of vibranium like Captain America’s shield and Black Panther’s new armor.
If this ends up being made out of the rare material, it would give the Winter Soldier a huge upgrade and absolutely be helpful when battling against the invading army that Thanos is bringing with him.
What do you think Anthony Russo’s comment means for the Winter Soldier in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’? Do you think the new arm will be a lifesaver in the upcoming film? Will it at all be touched upon during the course of ‘Black Panther’ or the credit scenes? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
