New Falcon And Winter Soldier News Comes In Hilarious Fashion

New Falcon And Winter Soldier News Comes In Hilarious Fashion

Disney+ is practically here, and with the
new streaming service comes the promise of a whole new era for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Over the next several years, Disney+ will
roll out a number of original series that both take place in the MCU and star MCU actors
– including Loki, Hawkeye, and WandaVision. The first of these new MCU series to hit the
streamer will be The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian
Stan as the titular heroes-slash-BFFs of Captain America. And though the show isn’t slated to premiere
on Disney+ until fall 2020, filming has already begun, which Mackie and Stan have announced
in hilarious fashion. As is customary when celebrities are involved
with promoting a company’s product, Marvel Studios had Mackie “take over” its social
media accounts on Monday, November 4th. On Marvel’s Instagram Story, Mackie revealed
that he was taking control of the account at Marvel’s request, teasing VIP access and
saying it would be “Falcon all day.” But Marvel’s next Instagram Story was from
Stan, who said that he was taking over the account at the request of the studio. “What?! What just happened? I heard Sebastian’s on this account too, who
gave him the password?” This led to dueling stories from the two actors,
with each of them making their case as to why he was the right choice to run Marvel’s
Instagram account for the day. In the end, however, the rivalry was revealed
to be a ruse, as the two came together to reveal that production had started on The
Falcon and the Winter Soldier. “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier are in
production now.” So what do we know? On the series, both Sam Wilson, a.k.a. Falcon,
and Bucky Barnes, a.k.a. Winter Soldier, will try to figure out the best way to honor Captain
America’s legacy now that Steve Rogers has officially retired from the role. At the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame, the
elderly Rogers passed his shield on to Sam, effectively christening him as the next Captain
America. But just because Steve wanted Sam to be the
next Captain America doesn’t mean he will be. Mackie told IGN that he isn’t the new Captain
America at the start of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and series showrunner Malcolm
Spellman also said fans shouldn’t go into the show expecting a clean transition from
the end of Endgame. In addition to the two leads, at least two
more familiar faces from the MCU are returning for the series. Emily VanCamp will reprise her role as Sharon
Carter, the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who had a brief romantic fling with
Steve, and who, it must be noted, is the niece of Steve’s eventual wife, Peggy. Also back is Daniel Brühl as Helmut Zemo,
the main villain from Captain America: Civil War, who will also serve as the main antagonist
for the series – only this time, he’ll be wearing his purple mask from the comics. Rounding out the main cast is Wyatt Russell
as newcomer John Walker, a character with a 30-plus-year history in Marvel Comics under
the monikers Super-Patriot, U.S. Agent, and… Captain America. Marvel has been pretty tight-lipped when it
comes to the actual plot of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. That includes not revealing who, if anyone,
will be the next Captain America. Prior to Avengers: Endgame, many fans assumed
that either Sam or Bucky would take up the mantle of Cap, as both characters have had
stints as the star-spangled Avenger in the comics. After Endgame was released and Falcon received
the Shield – with Bucky’s blessing – it seemed pretty obvious that Sam Wilson would be the
next Cap. But with the comments made by Mackie and others
relating to Falcon’s status within the series, it seems that someone else may become Captain
America instead. And that may be where John Walker comes in. First introduced as Super-Patriot in the 1980s,
Walker is the opposite of Steve Rogers. Whereas Rogers is a patriot, Walker is a nationalist,
representing the less savory bits of America and fighting crime with much more brutality. When Steve Rogers gave up the title of Captain
America in 1987, the government selected Walker to take his place over Rogers’ friend Sam
Wilson. The reason? The powers that be didn’t think the country
was ready for a black Captain America. Could The Falcon and the Winter Soldier follow
the same plot? It’s hard to imagine Disney wading into this
kind of political territory for its first MCU series on Disney+, but as we saw with
Black Panther, the company’s subsidiary Marvel isn’t afraid to make a statement on issues
that matter. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Looper videos about the Marvel
Universe are coming soon. Subscribe to our YouTube channel and hit the

    Captain America a black man. Thor a female. Captain Marvel a mohawk wearing feminist. Yup, the MCU is officially dead.

    "How dare you", Looper! "How dare you!" Nationalism is NOT "the unsavory side of patriotism". Nationalism means putting the interests & well being of one's own country above that of other countries. If that makes you cringe in horror, then maybe you, Looper, should re-evaluate just how much of a "patriot" you really are.

    It is Sad Disney decided to put Steve Rodgers, Captain America out to pasture in favor of Falcon as the next Captain America, and the Winter Soldier as his sidekick. What audience is Disney going after? The Black Panther audience? They may want to keep that audience and add to it younger loyal followers of the MCU.

    Walker seems more like a white supremacist.. Or at least it seems that Marvel could go that route; first having the government making him the new Captain America only to find out later that it was a huge mistake.

    2:30 i think would be interesting and behoove the show/franchise to have CA's brief fling turn out to have a bastard child turn mutated hero with Cap's morphed and enhanced genetics or DNA passed on to a boy (not female as it seems storylines are using females as badass heros as of late which is less realistic nor captivating) with the boy learning of his abilities similar to how Clark Kent aka Superman did.

    4:05 not ready for "black" Captain America? Imo i think a black one would be good for the health of recital equality and acceptance, on top of which much of America was founded in and built with the aid of black people in general. All just my thoughts.
    Some my fav characters are black: War Machine and Black Panther,

    Keep your politics out of the super hero movies. The political message is actually against the marvel universe message. Captain America stands for the USA and doesn't bash it or trash it with ridiculous claims like racism and gender inequality. Those are purposely spread by the leftists to create chaos so that socialism and comunism can take over. Captain America would fight against that.
