There is a lot of things to discuss about The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, like what the Flag-Smashers are truly up to and whether the new Captain America is someone we can trust. However, there's a particular topic that fans can't stop talking about: Is Bucky Barnes bisexual? Interestingly, showrunner Malcolm Spellman has addressed the topic.

Bucky is undoubtedly one of the most loved Marvel Cinematic Universe characters but there's still a lot we don't know about him. After all, he has a certain mystery to him because of his refusal to share too much about himself. However, some fans are convinced that Bucky could be bisexual based on his appearances in the MCU and in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.

So is Bucky bisexual and will it be confirmed in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier? NME had the chance to ask Spellman if the MCU series will confirm the character's sexuality. Not surprisingly, the showrunner didn't give a definitive answer.


"I'm not diving down rabbit holes, but just keep watching," Spellman said with a laugh.

It's no surprise that Spellman didn't answer the question. After all, there are many more important things to worry about in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. One that should be addressed is whether Bucky is ready to face Baron Zemo again after the villain tried to use him to destroy the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War.

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Episode 2 is titled The Star-Spangled Man. It is now available on Disney+. The third episode is scheduled for release on April 2.
