Marvel star, Sebastian Stan, recounts spraining his ankle while filming a scene for the fifth episode of The Falcon &The Winter Soldier.
In a recent interview, Falcon & The Winter Soldier star, Sebastian Stan, talked about an injury he sustained while filming. The show is one of the latest ventures in the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney+. It follows Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (Stan) after the events of Avengers: Endgame and focuses on the ramifications of the blip and Steve giving up the mantel of Captain America. The six episode mini-series received positive reviews from fans and critics alike, with an 88% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Stan began his time in the MCU early on when he starred in Captain America: The First Avenger alongside Chris Evans as Steve Rogers. He then made his second appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as the titular Winter Soldier. In the film, Steve discovers that his friend Bucky didn’t die in WWII, but was actually captured by hydra and brainwashed to become a super soldier assassin. The role requires Stan to play a different type of Bucky in each story, but always comes with extensive stunt work and fight choreography.

In an interview with Variety, Stan revealed he suffered an injury while filming the show. With the amount of fight scenes throughout the show, it may not be surprising to fans that Stan was injured on set; but according to him, the injury happened during a relatively tame scene. In the 5th episode, Sam and Bucky spend some time fixing up Sam’s family boat. The scene involves a montage of the pair repairing the boat and walking around on the docks. While jumping from a dock onto the boat, Stan twisted his ankle. Stan recalled, “I just landed and twisted my ankle so badly that I thought it was broken. Like I actually couldn’t walk on it.”
In the interview, Stan goes on to explain that a twisted ankle wasn’t the only injury he got while filming Falcon & The Winter Soldier, though his other injury didn’t actually happen on set. During a “late-night pee” Stan stubbed his pinky toe so hard that he broke it. This caused a lot of pain for the actor on set while filming. He told Variety:
In between the takes when we had to do the set-ups, I would run upstairs and two people would help me out of this boot and I would just take my foot and put it in a bucket of ice.
Despite the injuries, Stan doesn’t seem to be looking to stop playing Bucky anytime soon. Marvel execs have not officially confirmed a second season of The Falcon & The Winter Soldier (or Captain America & The Winter Soldier, as the final title card dubs the show), but a fourth Captain America film is confirmed to be in the works, and it makes sense that Stan would play a major part in the film. For now, fans can look forward to the rest of the Phase 4 Marvel properties slated for release.
