When it comes to the Marvel movies we all want whatever information we can get our hands on regarding Avengers: Infinity War. This time around it looks like the actors aren't going to be the ones who drop any spoilers in the lead up to the movie's premiere in April of '18. In an interview with MTV Sebastian Stan is yet another Marvel actor who says they only got their pages of the script, and not a spoiler more.
I only read what they gave me that day — it's usually only a day-to-day thing. I certainly don't know what I have to do next. [The movie is] the biggest culmination of anything and everything they've done so far.
Stan goes on to say that his character of Bucky is just trying to figure out where he fits in all of this and that he relates to Jon Snow from Game of Thrones in the sense that he has no idea what's going to happen.
I feel a lot like that Jon Snow character. You remember 'Battle of the Bastards'? 'Battle of the Bastards,' first of all, was one of the best episodes. […] For anyone who knows out there, when there's that shot of Jon Snow, from the back as horses are charging at him and he's just standing there, that's kind of how I feel on set at times. Will I make this stampede or not?"
As for whether or not Bucky is going to survive long enough to pick up Captain America's shield is something else that Stan brushes aside.
It's just speculation. I honestly have no idea. I really don't know what I would said to somebody that would ask me that question. […] I don't know. We just gotta all survive this war.
There's a good chance Bucky will take up the mantle of Cap at some point but it appears that if anyone knows outside of the writer's room, they're not talking, and they're definitely not telling the actors about it.
