Black Panther took audiences by storm with the release of its first teaser trailer earlier this summer. But some began to question if another Captain America: Civil War alum, Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, was cleverly missing from the footage, or wouldn't be appearing in the film at all.
Bucky himself, Sebastian Stan, has now settled things once and for all, in a recent interview with GMA.
"I am not in Black Panther." Stan revealed, in the video above, before slipping into an impression of Bill Clinton. "I did not have any relation with Black Panther."
All joking aside, Stan did actually clarify that he is not in the film, despite Bucky currently being held in cryosleep in T'Challa's (Chadwick Boseman) Wakandan palace. According to the actor, how Bucky does wake up in Wakanda will be seen, in next year's Avengers: Infinity War.
"No, I'm not. I really am not [in Black Panther]." Stan explained. "But that [plotline] gets resolved in [Infinity War]."

Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life
