A bridge too far?
Sebastian Stan’s one-armed bandit, a man with a recent past murkier than a derelict aquarium, gets plenty of big moments in Part Deux. For Stan, the lone gunman in a conspiracy so cunning and sinister it’d double-cross its own mum for an extra fish finger, the role took him back to school. Evil school. “I dove into the whole Cold War history,” he recalls. “I looked at the KGB, I looked at all kinds of spy movies, and all kinds of documentaries about that time. I grabbed anything from that time period and anything about brainwashing.” With seven movies remaining in his Marvel contract and plenty more scope for research ahead, he’ll be a quiz night fiend for years to come.
