Ahead of promoting his new romantic dram Endings, Beginnings, Sebastian Stan was well aware that he’d be quizzed about his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier.

We actually know when we’ll see Stan’s superhero back in action, as he is one of the titular characters in The Falcon And The Winter Soldier, which will premiere on Disney+ towards the end of this year.

But, after both Infinity War and Endgame, Marvel fans are dying for information on when the new look Avengers will get together, especially since two massive holes need to be filled, as Iron Man and Captain America have departed from the franchise.

Variety asked Stan for an update on the next Avengers film during a recent Instagram Live about Endings, Beginnings, and, initially, he insisted that he knew “nothing,” adding, “You know I know nothing about that. You know, I’m just… I’m just a man.”

But it was Stan’s next comments that immediately sparked speculation we’re going to have to wait a while for the fifth Avengers films.

“We’ve got to figure out a couple of other missions first before we even get there,” before he then immediately started poking fun at his fellow The Falcon And The Winter Soldier leading man, Anthony Mackie.

“I gotta deal with this other person that I have to deal with. It’s been nice to have a break from [Anthony Mackie], it’s kind of nice to have a little quiet in this quarantine without him. But we got to figure out some adventures together first before we get there."

We know for certain that it won’t be before 2022, as the slate for the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has already been announced, while the sequels to Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Guardians Of The Galaxy, as well as the debuts of X-Men and Blade are all expected before another Avengers film, too.
