Falcon and the Winter Soldier only has two episodes left… this season. Unlike WandaVision that felt like a one-off to move Phase 4 forward, a second season of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is not out-of-the-question. After all, unless we lose one of our title characters, I do expect them to come back in a movie, if not another season of the streaming series.
Sebastian Stan, who has played Buck since 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger recently had an interview with Collider. In it, he shared that Marvel Studios is going about things at their own pace:
My impression is that nobody’s over at that studio getting caught in the noise. They just love the work. They’re just always constantly grateful. Which if you look at the movies, a lot of the endings of the movies [are] like, ‘Well, this could be it, but maybe we’ll get lucky and we’ll get another one!’ There’s never been, ‘Well, yeah, we’re Marvel, we’ll just fucking hit another home run.’ There’s always this thing of embracing the last film for what it is and the hope of a continuation without expectation, and that’s very difficult to do at that level.
When asked if Stan has heard word of a second season for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, he replied:
No, we have not, and I’ll tell you that honestly, we have not. As per usual, I don’t quite know what the next step is. We never really do. Maybe some people do, maybe [Robert] Downey [Jr.] used to know, I don’t know.”
Stan shared that if there is another six episode order, he’d do anything to be apart of it. He told Collider of a recent interaction with Kevin Feige:
I got on the phone with him just to catch up, and I was saying to him, ‘Dude, you could fucking tell me to go swim under[water], I’ll do anything.’ It doesn’t matter. Or if this is it, my heart is just as big.
