When Bucky Barnes emerged in the final Black Panther’s post-credit scene, Marvel fans were excited to see the returning character looking healthier, having made a lot of progress in his recovery from his time as the brainwashed Winter Soldier. That scene almost looked very different by moving forward Bucky’s healing process even further, one of the film’s producer’s revealed.

Black Panther Executive Producer Nate Moore said they were considering showing the Captain America mainstay character completely whole again in an interview, according to Empire. In this unused version of the scene, Bucky sported a new prosthetic arm, presumably made out of Wakandan vibranium. “We do have this little film called Avengers: Infinity War coming up,” Moore joked. “We wanted to have Bucky back and up and around, because he will have a role to play in that film.”

In the Black Panther scene as it appears in the movie, Bucky steps outside a hut in rural Wakanda to meet with Shuri, having been taken to the country by his buddy Steve Rogers. He seems better than when he was last seen in Captain America: Civil War, but he is missing the metal arm he had in his past appearances.

Even though Bucky isn’t rocking a new left arm in Black Panther, we do know that the arm will be replaced in or before Avengers: Infinity War, as trailers for the movie revealed a fully armed Bucky battling alongside fellow heroes. But, why didn’t he have it in Black Panther?

Bucky Barnes goes on ice at the end of 'Civil War.'

Without an arm, something that makes him a fighter again, Bucky gets a chance to just be himself for a moment. He’s been brainwashed, forgotten his past, lost his friends, framed for an act of terrorism and pursued by powerful men. Moore explained that the armless version of the scene gave a sense of peace. “He could just be Bucky and that’s why I think it was important for him as a character to go, ‘not Sergeant Barnes, my name’s Bucky. I am a person, I am no longer a soldier,” Moore said.

Bucky should enjoy this moment of peace under the African sun. Looks like things are going to get rowdy in a few months once Thanos comes to visit.

'Avengers: Infinity War'

Avengers: Infinity War premieres on April 27, 2018.

Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5 is just around the corner. It might feel like Season 5 just began, but as summer winds down you can expect to see some major changes in the popular game. So when exactly will these changes occur? And what will they be?

Here’s everything you need to know about the start of Fortnite Season 6, and our best theories for what to expect in the next couple of weeks.

By now, we all know Thor should’ve aimed for the head at the end of in Avengers: Infinity War, even though Star-Lord shoulders a lot of the blame for Thanos wiping out half the universe due to his meltdown on Titan. But if you believe Doctor Strange’s talk about one successful outcome and his alleged “endgame,” then maybe Star-Lord’s freakout was actually an essential part of the plan. At the very least, the alternative could’ve been so much worse.

With all of New York’s criminal underworld webbed up in Marvel’s Spider-Man, gamers may be curious when it’s time for another swing. DLC will be released for the game very soon, but some are already curious if a sequel is in the cards. Nothing is confirmed, but if it does happen, Insomniac teases even more of Spider-Man’s universe will be explored.

A new Marvel Universe is forming in Spider-Man for the PlayStation 4, and developer Insomniac Games is taking the opportunity to put its own spin on Spidey’s world. It’s for this reason why one major character, Miles Morales, is introduced in the game so soon.

In a new 7-minute video interview with IGN on Thursday, Lead Creative Director at Insomniac, Byran Intihar, explained why Spider-Man is featuring fan favorite Miles Morales. In the comics, Morales inhabited the parallel Ultimate Marvel Universe and became Spider-Man when his universe’s Peter Parker died.

Coming in hot like a meteor from across the cosmos, the trailer for Captain Marvel spotlights Brie Larson as the space-faring superhero primed to take down Thanos in 2019.

But one moment in the trailer is just begging for an explainer: Why on Earth does Captain Marvel punch a sweet elderly woman on a bus?
