Here’s What Bucky Has In That Backpack In ‘Captain America: Civil War’

When the final trailer dropped for Captain America: Civil War, we were quick to do a breakdown, look for Easter eggs, and even spot a huge spoiler that slipped through editing. Another detail from that trailer — which could also be seen in the debut trailer — is that Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier) is often lugging around a backpack. It’s not the most common superhero accessory, and what’s in that thing? A hairbrush? His eye makeup? Metal polish? He does have to stay on point:


It turns out, he’s keeping something much darker than his eye makeup in that backpack. When a fan on Instagram asked about it, the actor who plays Bucky (Sebastian Stan) actually replied.

“In his backpack there are a dozen notebooks that compose the scattered memories dating back to as far as he can remember which somewhat piece together a scattered life. In a similar way to Alzheimer’s, he’s written things down, for fear of losing his memory again. He was prepared, were something to happen, to walk away with nothing but that backpack, which is why it’s the only thing he takes and knowing full well that not everything those pages contain is pretty.”

Yikes. Well, hopefully he’ll be all right. Unless…

Okay, hear me out, guys. What if those notebooks aren’t filled with his broken memories? What if it’s something far more sinister, something he’s not willing to admit he feels compelled to write down, again and again…
