“It’s really weird, because it just sort of, it’s like riding a bicycle, you never really forget in a way. That’s how I feel,” Stan shared. “Once you’re back there, once the arm is on, once the whole experience is complete, it just sort of clicks back in.”
Stan has been playing the character since 2011, where he’s played Captain America’s best friend in multiple films, yet that hasn’t stopped him from still learning new things of his character.
“It was interesting to kind of think of where he might be now, compared to where he started, and how far he’s gone. Because the character is kind of always revealing himself in a new way, even to me,” Stan said. “And that’s sort of been interesting, is you just kind of go with the flow a little bit. And so further on, it’s the same mentality.”
During the interview, Stan also revealed how he learned of Bucky’s fate in Avengers: Infinity War.
When asked about his favorite outtake from his time with the MCU, Stan recalled when he first found out about what happens with Bucky at the end of Infinity War, saying:
“Wait, I, I disappear? Okay, alright. Sure. No, and rolling, okay? I’ll just — will you tell me after. I’ll ask you later.”
The comment echoed Stan’s statements in the past. During one appearance at Wizard World’s comic con in Philadelphia, he shared a similar tale.

While Bucky’s fate in the franchise is uncertain, Stan has previously shared his own thoughts on what Marvel could do with his character. In a recent interview with Variety, Stan hinted that he wouldn’t mind seeing Bucky get his own movie, especially if he could explore the character’s backstory more.
“Of course,” the actor said. “I mean, the thing about these movies is that we’ve had a lot of them, but at the same time, there’s always pieces you feel like you can still explore and go back. Every time you play the character you learn something new and you want to go back and do it, so of course.”
Stan even shared that the solo film could show more of Bucky’s past, saying: “To get into some of the past, for example, that we haven’t seen then I’d be down 100 percent.”
We’d be down 100 percent to see that, too.
