Going into Captain America: The First Avenger, I have to imagine you were hoping to get a chance to play Winter Soldier. Were they ever discussing plans for that during the first movie, or did they come to you with the story much later?
Sebastian Stan: The whole story was brought to me before we shot the first movie. I didn’t really know where they were going to take the sequel next, or even if we were going to have a sequel, at the time. We were still making the movie, which is why when people start talking about the next film now, it’s the same thing. The movie has to come out, so I didn’t really know, at all. In the script, there were certain things about Bucky Barnes, he wasn’t written linear. There were peaks and valleys and some dark undertones, and that kind of made me feel like this is a chance to show various colors of things, depending on how it’s going to go.
I read you really embraced the training aspects of this, especially with the knives. Even before I saw the movie, that knife fight part in the trailer was one of the coolest things I had seen in awhile.
Sebastian Stan: Yeah, you’ve got to credit our stunt guys. I had this amazing stuntman, James Young, and he was teaching me everything, in terms of the knife training. Yeah, we got into it, because we had the time and we really wanted to get it. It was fun. I mean, Chris (Evans) had been in a number of action movies, but I don’t think any of us had learned this type of sequenced, choreographed type of fighting. This was something that, if there was a shot that would take three minutes, we would break it up and it took awhile. We took advantage of trying to do as much as we could.
The Winter Soldier’s look is so menacing and awesome, and you know right away this guy is bad. It was like one of those Darth Vader moments, where you see this guy and you know he’s the real deal. Can you talk about the actual costume you had to wear and the arm. Was there a lot of bulk to it, or were you still able to move around in it rather well?
Sebastian Stan: There was a lot of bulk to it. The way that the costume came together is it was made from five different pieces, and flexibility was definitely an issues, one we couldn’t have really known, because we weren’t rehearsing with the costumes on. We just saw how flexible we were once we got on set. It was tough. We went through some periods where we ripped a bunch of the costumes, just flying by the seat of your pants, a little bit. The arm was very specific. There were a couple of them, some more mobile than others. The ones that were more immobile were actually the better looking ones that looked cooler, so I always wanted to have that one. By the end, we just really adjusted to that.
Sebastian was on Good Morning America this morning to promote Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which is in theaters now! You can watch his interview below, as well as view captures in the gallery!

TooFab.com — Bucky Barnes has gone to the dark side!
Sebastian Stan returns as Captain America’s BFF in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” but he’s got a whole new look and one baaaaad personality.
Though he was presumed dead after the events in “The First Avenger,” Barnes reappears in the present day as a ruthless, brainwashed assassin with a bionic arm.
toofab’s Brian Particelli sat down with Stan before the film’s US premiere, where they talked about his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, picking up the fast-paced fight choreography, and, most importantly, who had the best hair flip on set.
“Listen, in that department I think Black Widow’s got everybody beat,” Stan says with a laugh.
“Pretty much all of it was mine and it was a lot,” he adds, talking about his mane in the flick. “I actually kept a lot of it for a couple months afterwards for as long as I could. I felt like a whole other person and sometimes you want that.”
It’s true, he looks like a totally different person in this movie — sporting a costume straight out of the Marvel comics.
“Thank God I actually have a cool costume and it’s not like a weird one,” says Stan. “It helped everything because it was just such a transformation for me. There’s a little kid thing about it, because you’re like ‘Wow! You guys really took this off the page!'”
The 30-year-old actor says he didn’t find out his character would return until two years after “The First Avenger,” though he thinks Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige probably knew “maybe a week after the first one came out.”
He tells toofab he has a “really good time” playing this character — and loved doing the fight scenes for this sequel. Continue reading
