Sebastian Stan, known for his emotive performance as The Winter Soldier in the MCU, is bringing his character to the small screen once again in What If…?.

The animated show is due to premiere on Disney+ August 11, returning many actors to voice their Marvel characters.

The series’ trailer recently confirmed that the character roster will include Peggy Carter, Thanos, Thor and many more treasured superheroes, enough to fill the Sanctuary II.

Sebastian Stan’s Recording Session

Romanian-American actor Stan posted a behind-the-scenes look at life in the recording studio on his Instagram account, which showed a passionate performance of his.

Stan is reprising his role as Bucky Barnes, a.k.a The Winter Soldier, and the 36-second video was extremely animated to say the least.

Stan can be seen shouting, grunting, laughing, running and everything in-between, portraying an animated version of the character who looks just like his real-life counterpart.

Stan previously revealed that one of his talents is silent movie acting, and this recording session is testament to the professional’s skill in expressive acting.

What If…? Character

Marvel’s trailer for the original animated series gave us a taste of what to expect in this alternate timeline, and confirmed that the heartache is not over for Stan’s Bucky Barnes.

The trailer showed a post-Winter Soldier setting for Bucky, except he was faced with a zombified Captain America.

What If…? will see The Winter Soldier face off against his best friend again, but we hope that once zombie Steve has been slayed, Bucky will catch a break.

The trailer also showed us what would have happened if Peggy Carter had taken the serum that Steve took, turning herself into Captain Carter with a Union Jack on her suit.

What If…? is an entertaining way for Marvel to air some of the narrative choices that perhaps didn’t come to fruition, whilst also giving fans a comical option to kick off Phase 4 of the MCU.
