Fans have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of Captain America 4, with numerous speculations and rumors circulating. A trusted insider now has confirmed that Sebastian Stan, who portrays Bucky, won’t appear alongside Anthony Mackie in the film.

Bucky Barnes Won’t Be In Anthony Mackie’s Captain America: New World Order!
Speculations had been swirling for quite some time, as Sebastian Stan’s name was conspicuously absent from the initial roster announcement of the Anthony Mackie movie. Despite the hopeful anticipation of fans awaiting any updates, a trusted insider known as MyTimeToShineHello on X dashed all hopes by supposedly confirming his absence from the film, shattering expectations.

As some had speculated, Sam and Bucky’s journey began in Captain America: Civil War, establishing a bond very distinct and unique from Bucky’s connection with Steve Rogers. This could justify Sebastian Stan’s limited role in the latest Captain America sequel which would predominantly focus on Sam Wilson.
Yet, reports suggest Bucky’s significance grows in the upcoming Thunderbolts, signaling his resurgence into a prominent role within the latest phases of the MCU yet again, giving some much-needed closure to the fans.
Fans Are Not Happy About It!
Following Bucky’s role alongside Anthony Mackie in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+, Sebastian Stan’s trajectory within the latest phases of the MCU has remained quite shaky, to say the least. Thus, naturally, upon the X personality confirming the regrettable news to the public, individuals swiftly began expressing their discontent regarding the situation. Here are some fan reactions to the news,
Why wouldn’t he be?
