“For the Winter Soldier, Legacy Effects had crafted a prosthetic arm piece to be worn by actor Sebastian Stan and stunt doubles on set, where it was covered in a few tracking dots. Both Luma (and ILM for other Winter Soldier sequences) then worked on a CG replacement arm that would articulate as slatted metal. “He moves so fast that there were so many actions,” comments Cirelli. “It was a real tech challenge to get the arm so that it was in not too many broken pieces but allowed rotation and twisting and all the things you’d expect.”
Since the arm had to be completely integrated into Stan’s body, Luma had to also establish the appropriate blend location for the CG appendage. “Sometimes that can be more complicated than just doing a full character replacement,” notes Cirelli. “Because if you have close-up shots of a character moving with cloth, and it’s rotating and twisting, well that begs the question where do you split in the CG? How far up the body? So along with the arm actually came cloth simulation and other sorts of texturing and modeling for the seamless operation of the arm.”
Despite its rigid metallic nature, Luma’s arm rig allowed for muscle bulging. “What we had,” says Cirelli, “was a rig underneath that allowed for contiguous skin and then it would deform and expand for muscle. That skin would drive the slats and how they move. It was a multi-tiered system similar to Destroyer from Thor but a little more complex because the Winter Soldier was lightning fast – jumping, rotating, twisting, moving. We found we had to have a more robust system so that when the arm twists and bends, it does so so quickly so the rig doesn’t blow up! We had lots of renders where it looked like he had two arms coming out of his elbow.”
Luma also detailed the interior of the arm, adding a layer underneath the exoskeleton of moving rods and mechanisms – elements that were more visible in a later lab sequence in which the Winter Soldier’s arm is being repaired. The studio relied on its Maya to Arnold workflow for the CG work.” (x)

Here’s the thing; the thing we love about Bucky is he’s a really complicated character; very tragic, complicated character. Here’s a guy, when you look at him, is he the world’s worst assassin or is he the longest serving POW in history? You could look at him as one of two things. Either he’s innocent by reason insanity or the equivalent of that, in terms of not being responsible for his actions because he was brain controlled, or he’s a monster. It’s a very complicated place. It’s a hard place to move forward from that. In relationship to Cap, it’s like is Cap ever going to be able to access the guy he used to be?
And if he can’t, well who is Winter Soldier? Is he Bucky Barnes anymore or is he somebody new? So those are all really interesting questions to ask with him. It’s our job on the next one to outdo the villain from the last one. But because that’s a mandate of ours, it’s always something we put an incredible amount of focus on. The stakes aren’t high enough. The audience doesn’t feel those stakes. If the characters aren’t in jeopardy continually throughout the film, then you lose a certain narrative momentum to the movie. As we said, you can only define the hero against the villain. So the greater the villain, the greater definition you get out of your hero.
