Social Media Freaking Over Marvel Winter Soldier’s New Look

1 min read

We can see why.

A poster for Marvel’s upcoming "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" series debuted at Disney’s D23 expo on Sunday… and it’s got fans VERY hot and bothered.

The promo pic shows Anthony Mackie’s Falcon and Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier gazing stoically into the distance, doing their best superhero poses. 

But that’s not all.

Our Winter Soldier, aka bad boy Bucky Barnes, not only has sweet new threads but… 

SHORT. HAIR.

Fans will remember Bucky’s cropped hairdo in the first "Captain America" movie was grown out into the ragged look we know and love for his debut as Hydra’s Winter Soldier.

While the idea of running around town kickin’ butt and takin’ names with long locks has always baffled us, (seriously, how can they even see? Doesn’t it go everywhere? What do they do in the wind?) Bucky’s luscious mane made it all the way through to "Avengers: Endgame".

But no longer.

Some diehard Marvellites are freaking on Twitter, saying the new suit and short hair means Bucky is back to his roots, having finally moved on from the Winter Soldier persona.

Other fans are mourning the memory of long hair Bucky.

Honestly, we’re just glad he doesn't have to worry ‘bout pesky flyaways anymore.
