One of the big questions some fans had about Avengers: Infinity War was if that was the first time Cap and Bucky saw each other since the events of Captain America: Civil War. Now we have the answer to that question, and it wasn’t the first time the two had seen each other since Bucky went back under ice.
The Russo brothers and Sebastian Stan did a talk with BUILD yesterday, and someone asked them about Bucky and Cap’s relationship in the movie and if that was the first time they’ve seen each other since Bucky was thawed out again and fixed by Shuri. Joe Russo responded:
“Clearly Steve had been on the run since Civil War, and keeping in close contact with Shuri and T’Challa. Obviously he’s been hiding somewhere, I think he’s made his way through Wakanda a couple times. That is how we directed that scene. It was not the first time that they were seeing each other since he woke up.”
