Captain America: Civil War Set Photo Shows The Return Of Bucky

Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America: Civil War promises to be one of the biggest ensembles that Marvel Studios has ever produced - but there will certainly be some characters in the movie who play larger roles than others. It's widely expected that one of these individuals will be none other than Sebastian Stan's Bucky Barnes a.k.a. Winter Soldier, and this weekend the actor revealed that he has officially arrived on the set of the blockbuster.

With the simple caption "Having A weekend!" and an Instagram photo, actor Sebastian Stan has confirmed that he has arrived on the set of Captain America: Civil War... though exactly what he is doing/preparing for isn't entirely clear. He appears to be inside a soundstage, though we can't really see any of the sets that have been constructed, and while it looks like he might be preparing for a fight scene, we have no idea who he might be going up against. Really, the only thing that we do know is that Bucky's still must not have much of a wardrobe, as that outfit looks a hell of a lot like what we saw him wearing in the Smithsonian in the post-credits sequence of Captain America: The Winter Soldier:

As alluded to at the top, it's expected that Sebastian Stan will have one of the most significant parts in Captain America: Civil War. Not only has it been confirmed that Captain America and Falcon will continue searching for the lost soldier - who was last seen trying to figure out his true identity - there are some elements from Bucky's past as The Winter Soldier that may have an effect on the movie as well. Specifically, audiences learned in the second Captain America movie that the brainwashed Hydra assassin was responsible for killing both of Tony Stark's parents - and it's very possible that Tony might have an extreme problem with that fact. Of course, Tony and Cap will already be going toe-to-toe thanks to the issue of superhero registration, but Bucky's history may add fuel to the fire that is their conflict.

Sebastian Stan's post isn't the first social media action we've seen from around the Captain America: Civil War set, as Chris Evans and Frank Grillo have also been tossing playful insults back and forth at each other on Twitter, so hopefully the actors will continue to provide insight into the production. In the meantime, stay tuned, and get ready for the film when Marvel sends it to theaters on May 6, 2016.
