A Look at Sebastian Stan’s Upcoming Film and Television Roles

Over the years, Sebastian Stan has gone from humble, promising beginnings on shows like Gossip Girl and Kings and in films such as The Covenant and Hot Tub Time Machine, to eventually skyrocketing to fame with his portrayal of James “Bucky” Barnes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (first appearing in Captain America: The First Avenger in 2011).

When he’s not portraying the iconic, beloved Super Soldier, Stan has also picked his way through various film genres. He’s pulled at our heartstrings with the romantic dramas Monday and Endings, Beginnings, and he’s thrown himself into grittier roles in Destroyer and The Devil All the Time. He’s even explored another side of himself entirely in films such as The Last Full Measure, We Have Always Lived in the Castle, I’m Not Here, and the extensive list in between.

So looking to the future, what can audiences look forward to seeing Sebastian Stan in next over the next few years?

The 355 will see a dream team of formidable female stars (Jessica Chastain, Penélope Cruz, Bingbing Fan, Diane Kruger, Lupita Nyong’o) come together in a hard-driving original approach to the globe-trotting espionage genre.

When a top-secret weapon falls into mercenary hands, wild card CIA agent Mason “Mace” Brown will need to join forces with rival badass German agent Marie, former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist Khadijah, and skilled Colombian psychologist Graciela on a lethal, breakneck mission to retrieve it, while also staying one-step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi Sheng, who is tracking their every move.

Stan also stars in the film, along with Edgar Ramírez.

Release Date: January 7, 2022

Written by Rob Siegel and directed by Craig Gillespie, the eight-episode series will explore the whirlwind relationship between the two stars — which kicked off when they were married in 1995 after knowing one another for a total of 96 hours — and the theft and subsequent distribution of their infamous sex tape.

The Brutalist

Directed by Brady Corbet and written by Corbet and Mona Fastvold, Stan is set to star in The Brutalist. The film follows the story of visionary architect László Toth (Joel Edgerton) and his wife Erzsébet (Marion Cotillard). When they flee Europe to rebuild their legacy and witness the birth of modern America, their lives are changed forever by a mysterious and wealthy client.

Sharper

Stan is set to star opposite Julianne Moore in the upcoming film Sharper, which follows a con artist (Moore) set in the world of Manhattan’s billionaire echelon. Stan will portray a conman named Max. The film, which also stars Justice Smith, Briana Middleton, and John Lithgow, is directed by Benjamin Caron.

Release Date: Unknown

The Chain

Back in 2019, the news broke that Stan was in talks to appear in Tim Sutton’s upcoming drama The Chain, which is based on a short story by Tobias Wolff about a series of events leading up to a murder. Jamie Bell, Margaret Qualley and Denise Gough will also star. Additional information about this project is not known as this time.

Release Date: Unknown

Marvel

Stan has portrayed Bucky Barnes in the MCU for over 10 years now, appearing in several films and most recently starring in the Disney+ limited series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and lending his voice to Marvel’s new animated venture What If…?. Although Stan has yet to be confirmed for another Marvel project, he has candidly expressed his interest in continuing to portray Bucky.

Avengers: Endgame dramatically altered the course of the MCU, taking several key players off the board (seemingly for good). While Phase 4 has brought with it newcomers like Shang-Chi and the Eternals, it has also worked to expand the roles of existing characters to shape them into the next leading faces of the MCU. With this trajectory in mind, it would be unprecedented to not see Bucky return (especially after all of his character development in TFATWS), be it in the rumored fourth Captain America film alongside Anthony Mackie or in another series/film entirely (Thunderbolts, anyone?).

Stay tuned for more updates on Sebastian Stan’s upcoming film and television roles!
