The Falcon And The Winter Soldier Gives Marvel Fans An Exciting Return To Action-Driven Stories

Marvel fans who endured a drought of content in 2020 due to the pandemic are being treated to some amazing content in 2021. As fans look forward to the arrival of “Black Widow” and other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe; WandaVision provided a much-needed Marvel fix.

While WandaVision delved into a darker and at times more comedic and nostalgic side of Marvel; The Falcon and the Winter Soldier brings the action and intrigue that fans should love.

Picking up shortly after the events of “Avengers: Endgame”; Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), struggles to take on the mantle left to him by Captain America.

Sam performs various contract missions for the government and the opening of the show is a fast-paced and visually appealing spectacle that is in keeping with the best cinematic moments of the franchise.

Sam is trying to find his place in a world forever changed by Thanos and the “Blip” and he attempts to balance his work with helping his sister save the family business as audiences get a much deeper look into the character and his life when he is not soaring into action as The Falcon.

At the same time; Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), is dealing with his long and troubled past as The Winter Soldier. He is troubled by Nightmares and is reluctant to speak with his therapist about them. Bucky has been pardoned for his past actions but is unable to move on, find friends, and pick up his life. He has a set of rules he has to abide by under the terms of his pardon which makes for some humor in the premiere.

With new threats emerging in the world; Wilson’s military support comes into contact with a dangerous individual who shows extreme strength and hostility and is apparently behind the emerging threat.

The opening episode is more in keeping with the Avenger and Captain America films in terms of tone and pacing; and will reportedly establish storylines that will feature in three upcoming projects.

The series shows great potential and provides fans with what they love from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The six-episode series is exclusive to Disney+ and will premiere on 3/19/21
