Sebastian Stan Talks About Ant-Man Post-Credit Scene And Civil War

Spoiler Alert: We're going to talk about the post credit scene in Marvel's Ant-Man, so if you haven't seen it yet, you still have time to look away.

            One of the most anticipated films of 2016 is Marvel's start of their Phase 3 of films, which starts with Captain America: Civil War. Now if you've seen the post-credits scene from Ant-Man, you'll know that there has been some introduction to what we might expect to see in the 2016 movie. The Civil Warstory is based on the comics written by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven. In it we see Tony Stark/Iron Man and Steve Rogers/Captain America on opposite side as the U.S. government plans to have a registration for heroes, and those who don't will be captured and taken to prison.

            This isn't just the story that's getting to be touched upon in Civil War, since there's still the fact that Captain America is looking for the brainwashed Bucky. We don't know what Bucky's storyline will lead to in the overall plot of the film, but the post credits scene gives us a peek at what we should expect.

            In the post credits, we see the Winter Soldier, aka Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), in a warehouse with his arm trapped in some kind of vise. Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) discuss their next move, stating that they can't call Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) because of the "Accords" (which we still don't know of). With no other choice, Sam Wilson tells Steve "I know a guy", referring to Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), and then we cut to  “Ant-Man will return.”

            There's lots of theories online on what was really going on in the scene. Some think Cap and Falcon has finally found Bucky and trapped him in. Well Sebastian Stan might have a clue as to what happened, as while away from the filming location he told Buzzfeed recently :

I think [what Bucky was caught in was] more of a vise. But it would never happen at his own hand, by his own doing. In terms of that scene in Ant-Man, I’ve seen some of the ideas people have about it and I would just say that whatever you’re seeing on the surface, it’s not as obvious as that. There might be a whole lot more to the scene. I would say someone would probably want to put him in a vise.

            Apparently Bucky didn't intentionally trap himself in the vise. But the question is, who would want to trap Bucky in there? Is it by an active Hydra member still alive? Are they trying to reactivate him?

            As for Ant-Man's involvement in the case, it seems like they will make use of his shrinking powers to free Bucky from the huge device. It looks like Ant-Man is yet to be involved in the Civil War going on, so we got that to look forward to.

            Which ever the case may be, it looks like The Winter Soldier will be playing a huge part in the Civil War. The Russo brothers are currently shooting the film, with Atlanta, Georgia serving as the filming location. We'll just have to wait and see what comes out of it when Captain America: Civil War opens to theaters on May 6th, 2016.
