You are being served your first coffee in the morning when all of a sudden a stranger starts blurting out the supposed keywords that make the character you play, Buckey Barnes, a brainwashed assassin, turn into a killing machine.
These situations happen “quite often”, confirmó Stan a BBC Radio 1.
“It happens in coffee shops”, dice Stan. “It happens a lot. And it’s always a lot of fun. Sometimes you have to look people in the face and say, ‘No, I won’t become the Winter Soldier when you say that.’ You can keep saying it and maybe you should say it, maybe it’s a moment that we both need to live together, here and now. But no madness will happen’”.
Fans first heard those words when Hydra used them to brainwash Buckey in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. They were later used by Helmut Zemo, a former colonel, to reactivate Buckey’s Winter Soldier persona in Captain America: Civil War.
