The mentioned fan theories come from a popular Marvel Cinematic Universe fan ship between Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes, with many fans choosing to read their close friendship as romantic. While these theories haven’t been confirmed (or denied), that hasn’t stopped fans from reading some details in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. For example, in Episode 1, “New World Order,” Bucky commented that he saw a lot of “tiger photos” on dating apps, which he would more likely see on men’s profiles.

It remains to be seen where The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will go with these clues in the remaining four episodes. However, Bucky, played by Sebastian Stan, is a very different character than the one he started out as in. Captain America: The First Avenger. The show won’t just tackle Captain America’s legacy, but Bucky’s as well, according to Stan.

Directed by Kari Skogland, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier stars Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, Wyatt Russell, Noah Mills, Carl Lumbly and Daniel Brühl. A new episode debuts every Friday on Disney +.
