Sebastian Stan Researched Cold War And More For CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Beyond Ed Brubaker's story arc, Captain America: The Winter Soldier star Sebastian Stan says he looked into brainwashing and more in preparation for his role in the Marvel sequel! Check it out!
Honoring Ed Brubaker's Winter Soldier storyline may have been the goal for Captain America: The Winter Soldier cast and crew, as MTV News notes, but Sebastian Stan looked into much more in preparation for his sub-titular role. When Movie Web asked the Romanian actor if his personal background played a role in his approach to Bucky Barnes, Stan says, "I was born in Romania, yeah...That's funny, because my friends used to tease me. I grew up, in some sense, in a communist country. I lived there until I was eight years old, but there were still communism. My friends would tease me and call me a red. Its funny, cause, low and behold, I end up with a Red Star on my shoulder. It was a neat little coincidence." After three to five months of physical training for long, epic fight scenes, Sebastian Stan says, "I dove into the whole cold war thing. I looked at the KGB. I looked at all kinds of spy movies, and all kinds of documentaries about that time, and what it was about. I grabbed anything from that time period. Anything about brainwashing. Just anything, cause I had the opportunity to do it. I went all over the place."
Stan researching the KGB, Cold War and even brainwashing likely indicates the Winter Soldier's backstory will translate almost directly onto the big-screen. This isn't a huge surprise, but it does, perhaps, hint that we'll see that backstory in flashbacks, where we'll also explore Black Widow's past with the soldier and more, and how it all relates to current events in the movie.
