"Avengers: Infinity War" is one of the most anticipated comic book movies. In a similar manner, the highly anticipated storyline is the continuity following "Captain America: Civil War" when Steve Rogers sacrificed his shield and quit to become Captain America. Bucky is his best friend and his compatriot as well and is considered as the most suitable replacement as Captain America as depicted in the comic book.

The Winter Soldier, Bucky is said to be the next Captain America based on Sebastian Stan's teaser in his Instagram post in November 2016. According to Independent, this is one of the most curious and at the same time highly anticipated moments in the "Avengers: Infinity War." The most important point to be noted here is that this above statement has no validity since there is no official statement from the Marvel Studios about the role of Winter Soldier in the upcoming movie "Avengers: Infinity War." So nothing can be positively said about the truth of the statement.

This hoax first came to being last November when Sebastian Stan posted a picture of Winter Soldier carrying the metallic version of the shield of Captain America in his Instagram profile. But after that three months have passed and still, there is no confirmation from the Marvel Studios, and so nothing can be said about the validity of the of the risen rumor. Sebastian Stan is the actor who played the role of Bucky Barnes, the best friend of Steve Rogers, reported Celebeat.

Barnes was assumed to be dead during the mission in Europe for the elimination of Hydra during the Second World War. Later it was known that he was alive and was transformed into super soldiers where he was being brainwashed. It was said he would be joining the Iron Man, Thor, and other superheroes in the "Avengers: Infinity War" to fight Thanos. So an official statement will only prove whether it is rumor or truth.
