With the recent surge of popularity from “antihero” films, such as Deadpool and Venom, Marvel fans have been pretty happy to see the solo debuts of some of our favorite unconventional heroes.

While we’re beyond stoked that Marvel has given some of our favorite antiheroes their own movies, there has been one name that is notably missing from the group: the Winter Soldier.
Ever since his first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Bucky Barnes, Captain America's best friend, fans have been pretty interested in seeing the solider get his own film and it looks like they aren't alone. In a recent interview with Variety, Sebastian Stan, Bucky Barnes himself, shared 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.
Of course, Marvel hasn’t officially announced any plans of a Winter Soldier solo movie, but that doesn’t mean fans haven’t wanted to see more of Stan’s Character. With his first appearance in 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger and then 2014's Captain America: The Winter Solider, fans have been wanting to see more of Bucky Barnes and his backstory.
Who knows? With fans and Stan rallying for the Winter Soldier to get his own movie, maybe Marvel will take notice. Sound off below if you wouldn't mind seeing a Winter Soldier spin-off!
