This May’s MCM London Comic Con has a killer new guest in the shape of Sebastian Stan, famous as the titular HYDRA assassin of 2014 blockbuster Captain America: The Winter Soldier and other films in Marvel’s critically-acclaimed superhero movie series.
Romanian-American actor Sebastian Stan has become a firm fan favourite for his role as the Winter Soldier – aka Bucky Barnes – in the hugely-successful Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Originally Captain America’s childhood best friend, Stan’s character was captured by the villainous HYDRA organisation and brainwashed into becoming a deadly assassin.
As well as starring in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Stan appears in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger; 2016’s Captain America: Civil War and last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, along with cameos in Ant-Man and Black Panther. Stan is also set to reprise his role in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame, hitting cinemas this April. Other big screen credits include Ridley Scott’s The Martian, Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky and award-winning black comedy I, Tonya.
Sebastian Stan will be meeting fans at MCM London on Saturday 25 May and Sunday 26 May, headlining a stellar line-up of guests alongside David Harbour (Stranger Things, Hellboy) with many more guests still to be announced. During his time at Comic Con, Stan will be signing autographs, holding photo ops and taking part in an on-stage panel. Special VIP packages will also be available for Sebastian Stan super fans – further details coming soon!
