Sebastian Stan Reveals He Wants to Direct, His Favorite Marvel Memory With Chris Evans, Bucky’s Last Interaction with Captain America and More from MCM London Comic Con

My apologies if some of this seems disjointed. I cut and pieced many of this together from a handful of ComicBook.com’s articles to make one master post for easy reading. Much of what they reference is from the videos posted via YouTube.

Sebastian Stan Wants to Direct

Avengers star Sebastian Stan wants to turn director, but the actor admits he’s still “very far, far off” from heading behind the camera.

“It’s only in the last couple years that I’ve become so in awe of directors and the moviemaking aspect. As an actor, I used to only see myself and the scenes and my contribution, but then I realized, ‘Wait a minute, you’re part of this big thing,’”

“And there’s always a sense of vision and just the way that you can tell stories visually, with sound, the whole editing [aspect], the way you can influence [a film] — it just fascinates me. Yeah, it would be nice to kind of find something that could make sense at some point, but I’m still very far, far off from that.”

Asked if he might make his directorial debut on streaming service Disney+, where Stan and Captain America co-star Anthony Mackie will lead The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Stan said with a laugh, “They’ll never, they’ll never let me. I don’t know about that. That’s a high bar.”

Sebastian Stan Reveals What Bucky Would Have Done With Time Stone in Avengers: Endgame

To say that the Winter Soldier has been some through some awful things in the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be something of an understatement. He went from being Steve Rogers’ best friend and an Army officer before being captured and experimented on by HYDRA and then, after falling to his presumed death, brainwashed into becoming the superpowered assassin Winter Soldier. It’s a complicated, bleak history, a history that fans might expect Bucky to want to undo if he had the chance. But, according to Sebastian Stan, there’s something else he’d do if Bucky got his hands on the Time Stone.

Stan was asked by a fan during his appearance at MCM London this weekend what Bucky would do if he had the opportunity to use the Time Stone — the Infinity Stone that has the ability to manipulate time — and it turns out, Bucky wouldn’t completely erase his history as Winter Soldier — just the assassinations.

“What would Bucky do if he got the Time Stone? Get the hell out of there!” Stan joked. “No, if he got the Time Stone of course he would go back to face himself in the ’70s and then it would have to be two Winter Soldiers, one against the other, then he would have to face himself and stop himself from creating about 864 assassinations.”

The idea that Bucky would use the stone to go back and prevent his other self from carrying out the multitudes of assassinations HYDRA and the KGB had him carry out over the years rather than stop himself from becoming the Winter Soldier in the first place is an interesting one. While it would in theory keep much of the character’s history intact, stopping some of the assassinations would likely have far-reaching impact on the MCU’s history on the whole. What’s certain is that a Winter Soldier on Winter Soldier fight would be pretty epic to see, much like watching Captain America fight himself in Avengers: Endgame was a pretty great scene itself.

Sebastian Stan and Edgar Ramirez Join Spy Thriller ‘355’

HollywoodReporter.com — Marion Cotillard, who was part of the film’s splashy market presentation last year, has since dropped out.
355 is back on track.

The film — which marked last year’s biggest sale at the Cannes market but hit a roadblock when one of its stars, Fan Bingbing, became embroiled in a tax evasion scandal in her native China — has filled out its cast with Sebastian Stan and Edgar Ramirez.

The duo join Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o, Penélope Cruz and Fan in the action pic about a group of female spies who must bond together to stop an event from occurring that could thrust the world into total chaos. They form a faction code-named 355, a shout-out to the first female spy in the American Revolution.

Marion Cotillard, who was part of the Cannes presentation last year as one of the film’s stars, has since dropped out, citing personal reasons.

The film, which was acquired by Universal and will be directed by Simon Kinberg, is set to begin principal photography in Paris in July. Shooting also will take place in London and Morocco.

Chastain is producing through her Freckle Films banner alongside Kelly Carmichael and Kinberg. Theresa Rebeck, whose credits include NBC’s Smash, wrote the screenplay.

Stan is currently onscreen in Avengers: Endgame and recently appeared in I Tonya. He is repped by ICM and Brookside Artist Management.

Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie are teaming up in ‘Falcon and The Winter Soldier’ on Disney+

Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie are teaming up in ‘Falcon and The Winter Soldier’ on Disney+

This news originally broke back in early April. I’ve compiled all the information about the upcoming miniseries below.

    Post summary:

  • Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie will star in a Disney+ miniseries titled ‘Falcon and The Winter Soldier’
  • The show will begin filming in October in Atlanta, Georgia.
  • Daniel Bruhl and Emily Van Camp will reprise their MCU roles.
  • The series will premiere in 2020 with a reported 6 episodes.
  • Malcolm Spellman is set to serve as the writer and showrunner.
  • Disney+ will debut November 12, 2019 for $6.99 a month.

Marvel.com — Announced during The Walt Disney Company’s Investor Day, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige shared Marvel Studios’ excitement to explore long-form stories in ways we’ve never done before.

Bucky Barnes and Sam Wilson have been enemies, and they’ve been friends. Get ready for more adventures from them in “Falcon and The Winter Soldier,” with Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan.

It is also worth noting how the individual shows Disney+ aims to create will affect future theatrical releases from the MCU. You can read more below..

Vulture.com — And most importantly for continuity fans, Feige did say that developments in Marvel shows will impact narrative developments in upcoming superhero theatrical releases. “A post-Endgame MCU will be extremely different and extremely focused on Disney+ tying into our future,” Feige told the crowd. In other words, you have to subscribe to Disney+ if you really want to know what’s going on in the MCU.

On May 20th Deadline announced who will be directing the upcoming The Falcon and the Winter Soldier miniseries.

In addition to who will be directing they’re also reported that Captain America: Civil War’s Daniel Bruhl and Emily Van Camp will also be joining Sebastian and Anthony for the series and will air in August 2020.

Kari Skogland has been set to direct the six-part Disney+ miniseries The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, with Avengers: Endgame‘s Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan starring. Sources said Captain America: Civil War‘s Daniel Bruhl and Emily Van Camp are also in talks to join. The miniseries will air in August 2020.

I’d heard that Mackie’s accepting the shield from Captain America at the end of Avengers: Endgame will figure into the miniseries, but the studio had no comment on where it goes.

Bruhl played Zemo in Captain America: Civil War, the mastermind who drove a wedge between Captain America and Iron Man that factored into the Avengers films, and the murderer of Black Panther’s father. Malcolm Spellman (Empire) has been writing.

ComicBook.com reports Sebastian revealed his expectations for the series at a recent comic convention. You can read what he had to say below:

“I think it’s time for Bucky to go out there and have an identity outside of the circumstances that we’ve met him through,” Stan said. “So, I don’t know, he might do all kinds of things. He might even go on a date. I don’t know. Scary world out there, you know? Apps, things like that. I don’t know what he’s gonna do. I can’t see him on an iPhone…I think it’s gonna be a lot of dealing with Anthony’s character and Anthony himself which is always another character.”

Sebastian also revealed the series would begin filming in October, though he did not give an exact date. The series will reportedly film in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Winter Soldier actor also praised his co-star, Anthony Mackie, saying:

“I have a blast working with Anthony. It’s very funny half the time. It’s just gonna be a lot of that move your seat up thing, I’m gonna tell him that if we’re gonna be in the car, I’m gonna be in the passenger’s seat and he’s gonna be in the back, or I should be in the driver’s seat.”

For those who aren’t familiar with Disney+ here is some key information about the upcoming streaming service:

Launching on November 12, 2019, at $6.99 a month, Disney+ will be the ultimate streaming destination for movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. From The Walt Disney Company’s Direct-to-Consumer and International segment, Disney+ will offer ad-free programming with a variety of original feature-length films, documentaries, live action and animated series and short-form content, along with unprecedented access to Disney’s incredible library of film and television entertainment.

Sebastian Stan Replacing Chris Evans In Netflix Film ‘The Devil All The Time’

Deadline.com — Sebastian Stan will replace Chris Evans in The Devil All The Time, the Antonio Campos-directed drama. Evans has dropped out over a problem with scheduling. Who better to step in than Stan, as he and Evans have played running buddies Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier and Captain America in four Joe & Anthony Russo-directed Marvel Studios films that will culminate in the April 27 release Avengers: Endgame?

Randall Poster is producing with Nine Stories’ Jake Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker, and Max Born. Stan will costar alongside Tom Holland, Jason Clarke, Mia Wasakowska, Robert Pattinson, Riley Keough and Bill Skarsgard.

Evans’ schedule just got really crowded. He committed this week to star for director Antoine Fuqua in Infinite, the tent pole Paramount sci-fi film, and he is about to start production on Defending Jacob, the Apple series he’s starring in and producing.

The Devil All The Time is an adaptation of Donald Ray Pollock’s 2011 mid-western gothic novel that Antonio and Paulo Campos co-scripted. In the forgotten backwoods of a place called Knockemstiff, Ohio, a storm of faith, violence and redemption brews. Out of desperation to save his dying wife, Willard Russell turns to prayer which succumbs to sacrifice. This sets our protagonist Arvin, Willard’s son, on his path from bullied kid to a man who knows when to take action. He interacts with a nefarious cast of characters: a serial killer couple, a faith-testing preacher, and a corrupt local sheriff in a story that is told across two decades.

Stan’s recent credits include Destroyer, I, Tonya and The Avengers franchise. He’s repped by ICM Partners, Brookside Artist Management and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern.

Annie Marter and Jacob Jaffke are the exec producers.

Sebastian Joins Jamie Bell, Margaret Qualley & Director Tim Sutton For ‘The Chain’

Deadline.com — Voltage Pictures has boarded international sales on Tim Sutton’s upcoming thriller The Chain, which reunites the filmmaker with his Donnybrook stars Jamie Bell and Margaret Qualley. Both stars are in talks to join in addition to Colette‘s Denise Gough and Captain America: Civil War‘s Sebastian Stan.

Voltage president and COO Jonathan Deckter announced the news today.

The Chain, which Sutton adapted from Tobias Wolff’s award-winning short story of the same name, follows the story of a man’s daughter who is viciously attacked by a dog, setting off a chain of events that ends in unspeakable tragedy. This is the second feature-length adaption of Wolff’s literary work; his memoir This Boy’s Life was adapted into the hit feature film of the same name starring Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Barkin. Production on The Chain will start in April.

Producers are Rumble Films’ David Lancaster (Whiplash, Nightcrawler, Eye in the Sky) and Stephanie Wilcox (Small Crimes, Donnybrook). Deckter negotiated the deal with Jon Shiffman COO/CFO of Rumble Films on behalf of the producers. UTA will rep North American rights. Rumble Films also produced Sutton’s bare-knuckle pugilist pic Donnybrook which made its world premiere at last year’s Toronto Film Festival’s Platform Section, won the 2018 Fantastic Fest main competition and will be released by IFC Films in 2019.

“The incomparable Tobias Wolff is one of my favorite authors and we’re even bigger fans of Jamie Bell since working with him on the powerful feature Skin,” said Deckter. “We’re thrilled to partner with our friends at Rumble Films to bring Tim Sutton’s adaptation to audiences around the world. It ticks all the boxes for a strong, international commercial contender so we could not be happier to be representing The Chain,” Deckter continued.

The Chain is the latest film to be added to Voltage’s production and sales slate for Berlin. The company recently announced its new production Blackwing from writer David Loughery and its worldwide representation of the social media thriller Follow Me.

Stan’s credits include Jonathan Demme’s Ricki and the Flash, Ridley Scott’s The Martian and I, Tonya. Most recently, Stan starred opposite Nicole Kidman in Karyn Kusama’s Destroyer. He is repped by ICM Partners and Brookside Artist Management.
