Falcon and Winter Soldier MCU Futures After Endgame
Oscar Rendon | St. Louis, MO | May 1st
After the events of Avengers: Endgame it seems some of our favorite heroes futures are in question and others have been laid out for us to follow. So here is what we know so far about Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier and Sam Wilson aka Falcon. Over the past few months, several shows have been announced for Disney’s streaming service Disney+ including some from such properties like Star Wars and Marvel Studios. Disney and Marvel announced that Falcon and Winter Soldier would be getting their own series on the service, no details on whether it’s a limited series or a series confirmed for several seasons but Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie are confirmed to star on the show with production to start soon with an eight episode order. Warning Avengers: Endgame Spoilers Ahead.
At the end of Endgame, an old Steve Rogers returns from a branched reality/time to pass on the torch or in this case the shield to Sam Wilson thus becoming the NEW Captain America. Bucky gives Sam the nod of approval and boom we set up the Falcon/Winter Soldier series. Now what the series will be about is still unknown but we have our theories and here is the first one.
Our first theory on what the show can be about is Sam finding a way to be his own Captain America, not like Steve but a Captain America that still gives people hope and that anyone can be a hero. Bucky would serve as a guide, as Steve’s closest friend he could relay advice that Steve would give. Every superhero show needs a villain and who better than a familiar face, Zemo from Captain America: Civil War. Of course with Endgame introducing time travel and the multiverse via altering the events of 2012 with Loki and his series there is a strong possibility that Marvel and Disney explore the idea of alternate versions of our heroes from another timeline. One where Sam isn’t given the mantle of Captain America and remains Falcon, after all the show is called Winter Soldier & Falcon. Now, with Endgame released the title could have been a working or fake title for the show as to not spoil anything from Avengers 4. Whether we stick with the versions of Bucky and Sam we have grown to care for or alternate timeline versions of the same characters we’re sure that we will enjoy the extra content from Disney and Marvel that we get to explore with these new shows coming soon.
