The star of the upcoming Disney+ series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, is currently en route to Europe and took some extreme measures on his flight. Stan posted a photo of himself on Instagram, which includes him wearing a face mask, sleep mask, hoodie, hat, gloves, and a blanket.
"Thanks @delta for getting me to Europe safely... #BuckytakesEurope," Stan wrote.

Many celebrities also chimed in, including Jessica Chastain who wrote, "Haha OMG." Shailene Woodley replied with "SS" and Cara Santana just posted three coffin emojis.
