One of the main questions that guides the “ Hawk and the Winter Soldier ” series concerns who will take Steve Rogers’ shield, becoming the new Captain America.
Past speculation and rumors have pointed to Sam (Anthony Mackie), but Marvel Studios continues to maintain its secrecy regarding the information, which will only be revealed at the end of the new production, which opens this Friday (19).
And in an EXCLUSIVE interview with our reporter and critic Rafa Gomes, the showrunner and writer of the series, Malcolm Spellman, spoke about the subject and was adamant in revealing that Steve Rogers will be an intense presence throughout all six episodes.
The responsibility and pressure to take on the role of the hero will be some of the key plot points, as he revealed:
“Steve Rogers’ memory is alive in every episode. If you watch the first chapter you’ll see the world is in chaos and Steve Rogers was – obviously – the MCU hero qualified to talk to everyone in the world, but he’s gone, so these issues get worse. again. In the meantime, you’ve got Sam and Bucky trying to decide what should happen to the shield and who should stay with it, right? This shield belongs to their mutual friend, Steve. And since he’s now gone, besides, they don’t know what to do with the shield, nor do they know what to do with each other ”.
Spellman went even further and commented on the pressures the characters will be feeling, due to the mission one of them will have to take on, being the “next” Steve Rogers:
“The journey of who will be the next Steve Rogers, I think, depending on who gets the shield… It’s all still rooted in Steve. If it’s John Walker, as a soldier he will somehow feel the pressure from Steve. If it’s Bucky, he’ll feel the pressure of being Steve’s best friend. And if it was Sam who – as you saw in the pilot episode – decided that this wouldn’t be appropriate for him, the pressure of being the next Captain America will be linked to who he is and if he would be the right person to wear it. symbol or not ”.
The series will be launched on the Disney + platform.
