Crisis scenario

Unlike WandaVision, which takes place shortly after the funeral of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” will take place six months after Thanos (Josh Brolin) ‘s “blip” returns. In other words, this euphoria of reuniting supposedly deceased relatives and friends will already have given rise to real dilemmas, such as the financial, social and diplomatic effects of having half the planet’s population reappear overnight. next day would result in countries around the world. world. Additionally, according to the synopsis, “Sam Wilson / Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) join a global adventure that tests your skills – and your patience.” With recordings underway in different countries, one can expect international conflict.

Vengeful trio

The heroes of the time are already known to the general public. In addition to the supporting cast who now becomes the protagonist, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, we will also have the participation of Tony Stark’s best friend and also Avenger, Lieutenant James Rhodes, also known as the Combat Machine.

Agent 13 / Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp), who defected from SHIELD after the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), also reappears.

The main villain is Zemo (Daniel Brühl), who will now be wearing his comic book costume, including a purple mask and all. In the plot, he will be abandoned in a prison in Germany and will try to implant his distorted ideas around the world. Next to him, we will have the return of the Algerian Batroc (George St. Pierre) and the novelty is for stateless persons (Erin Kellyman), the leader of an organization that intends to end the borders of the planet.

Enjoy watching:

The central plot of the series revolves around Sam Wilson trying to get used to the idea that he is “heir” to Captain America (Chris Evans). However, it appears that the United States is not ready for a black Captain America, which is reflected in the pressure and public opinion that Falcão is the new “gangiroso”. It is in this context that the soldier John Walker (Wyatt Russel), the American agent of the comic strip, appears. It is an action by the US government to replace the hero more in keeping with the “phenotypic patterns” – white and blond – of the original shield bearer. It’s already been said that Sam won’t be the new captain, but does that mean he’ll pass the shield to John or take responsibility for Steve, only without taking the name for himself? And there is also the question of whether John will be a hero, a villain, or an anti-hero. In other words: we’ll have a lot of racial talk and a mystery about who the “new” Captain America will be.

Six hour series

Like WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will have a total of six hours of content. However, instead of nine episodes, we’ll only have six chapters that are around an hour long each. And one can expect a lot of quality in the staging, the plot and the visual effects. That’s because the show’s total budget was $ 150 million, which is cinema-worthy. Apart from that, the direction of all episodes was in charge of Kari Skogland, famous for his extraordinary work in The Tale of the Maid, and the script was worked on by Malcolm Spellman, responsible for the award-winning series Empire.
