Sebastian Stan played The Winter Soldier, based on Ed Brubaker’s reinvention of Bucky for the Captain America comic books. Recently, Ed Brubaker has spoken in disparaging terms regarding the Captain America; The Winter Soldier movie, pointing out he gets paid more for his deleted cameo scene in the movie than for the Falcon And Winter Soldier TV series in total. Which seems insane, but that’s Marvel Comics contracts for you. Well, Sebastian Stan looks like he may be teasing something about working with Ed Brubaker on something new. By posting to his Instagram stories a picture of him reading Reckless by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. With a quizzical face emoji and tagging in Ed Brubaker. Brubaker and Phillips are full co-owners of the Reckless series of graphic novels, published by Image Comics. Is this a way to help boost his friend’s sales? Or is this a tease from Sebastian Shan suggesting he may be playing the lead, Edward Reckless, in a movie adaptation of the series?

 Previously, Ed Brubaker told THR “We’ve had a bunch of movie interest, but nothing that’s come to fruition yet. Every time someone asks me who I want to play him, I’m like ‘Sebastian Stan.’ Not just because he was the Winter Soldier. Partly that. But because I think he’d be perfect for it. ‘Come on! You could be in every scene instead of half of them.'”
