In addition to his countless assassinations, Bucky slaughtered hundreds (thousands?) in Philadelphia and committed other atrocities. Comic book writers can gloss over disturbing stuff like that but it would never fly in the film universe. There are people on this forum arguing that Captain America is too good to have sex; think of the reaction of the GA if Steve Rogers were replaced by a mass murdering psychopath.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
