We’re still waiting to see if Bucky Barnes will ever suit up as Captain America on the big screen, but the actor who brings him to life is making sure he’s ready if the call comes.

Sebastian Stan, who starred in the past few Captain America films as Bucky Barnes (aka the Winter Soldier), has picked up his very own superhero shield. Sadly, it isn’t for a future movie (as far as we know, at least). Stan thanks Shield Labs, a collectibles shop in Missouri, for getting him the shield—which is more in line with the Winter Soldier’s aesthetic, as opposed to the red, white and blue version Steve Rogers like to sport.

This is almost certainly just a fun, geeky pic to get fans pumped, but Stan does tease the shield “will come in handy.” No confirmation he’ll be using one on the big screen, obviously, but we’ll take it.
