Sebastian Stan Claims Marvel Fans Try to “Activate” The Winter Soldier When They See Him. During a recent interview with BBC Radio, Marvel Star Sebastian Stan shared insight into his new Disney+ series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and some peculiar fan interactions since taking on the role of James “Bucky” Barnes.
Most notable, Sebastian shared that some fans have approached him and will begin uttering the “activation sequence” for The Winter Soldier during their interaction. You know, “Longing, rusted, seventeen, daybreak, furnace, nine, benign, homecoming, one, freight car.”
Seb shared with BBC Radio, “It happens quite often. It happens at coffee shops. It happens a lot. And it’s always very funny. It’s an honorable thing I guess. You’re very taken with it all the time. You do have to sometimes look at people in the face and say, ‘No, I will not become the Winter Soldier when you say that. You can keep saying it, and maybe you should say it, maybe that’s a moment we both need to have together, now, here. But nothing crazy will happen.’“
Sebastian also opened up about his excitement to dive deeper into Bucky’s story as the MCU continues to move forward, sharing: “I was excited about that, because I think we talked a lot about it in some of the other movies, and there was never enough time to just sort of explore him after Civil War and where he was at and how much he had confronted, how much there was still left for him to deal with,” Stan further explained. “So, this is really the perfect time, you know, for both of these characters to be learning more about themselves, the world they’re in, and their priorities, and he’s right up there with Sam on that.”
