The Falcon and The Winter Soldier series has officially started production on Disney +. The news came to us from showrunner Malcolm Spellman via Instagram in a post done in a great comedic manner by the stars of the show, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan. The post was later taken down. Although it was enough for us fans to get excited over the return of Steve Roger’s right-hand men.
The direction of the series or the plot has yet to be revealed. The end of Avengers Endgame left us with some clues as to where the story can go. Steve Rogers AKA Captain America decided to pass the shield and move on after Avengers: Endgame. Sam Wilson AKA The Falcon was granted the responsibility of becoming the new Captain America. The Winter Soldier AKA Bucky Barnes could have a new task on becoming an Avenger. A task that won’t be easy, due to the fact that Bucky has served as a bad guy for many movies. Not to mention the unforgivable crimes he committed while being under the control of Hydra.
What we know about The Falcon and The Winter Soldier series.
Antony Mackie and Sebastian Stan will be returning to their characters of the Falcon and Winter Soldier. The return of Captain America Civil War’s villain Helmut Zemo portrayed by Daniel Bruhl is on the horizon. Also, the return of Agent Sharon Carter played by Emily Vancamp. Finally, we get a new villain in the mix. The Super-Patriot, played by actor Wyatt Russell. The show will consist of six-hour-long episodes directed by Kari Skogland.
Final thoughts: Winter Soldier and Falcon
Various rumors going around that the plot of the show may revolve around The Falcon becoming Captain America and the reaction of the public and government. Other rumors revolve around Chris Evans coming back for an episode or two as Old Steve Rogers. Earlier this year, Avengers Endgame Co-director Joe Russo stated that the actor was not done with the role of Captain America yet. It’s most exciting to see how this new world is, without Cap. Will the show will feature a big turn in both their character arcs? Will The Winter Soldier find his place in the new Avenger hero world? Finally, I can’t contain my excitement of seeing how Sam proves to be worthy of the title of the new Captain America.
