There we a lot of theories and ways we thought Falcon and the Winter Soldier would take, but this new one, which Anthony Mackie revealed, is sure to get fans thinking.
Keeping up the hype
With a lot in line for Marvel with these Disney Plus show’s outcome, Kevin Feige is doing everything possible to keep the fans hyped up and reminded of what all projects of phase 4 are about to hit this year.
Now by the end of the heartbreaking Avengers: Endgame movie, Steve Rogers decides to give his much-valued shield to Sam Wilson. Now many argue that Bucky was more fit.
But the reason will always stand that Steve Rogers did it right as that’s exactly what Dr. Abraham Erskine would’ve done.
A good man and a good soldier
The explanation is simple; Bucky makes up for a good soldier like everyone in ‘The First Avenger’ movie while Wilson makes up for a good man like Steve Rogers, so that’s why Wilson was chosen.
But now, according to Mackie, the series will start by addressing if and or Wilson will carry on the mantle of Captain America. Mackie has said that the show will address Mackie’s doubts about picking up the mantle and who actually ends up being Captain America.
Second Black-Captain America
Well, we saw in the trailer Mackie dressed as Captain America, and there are rumors that Isaiah Bradley, an unwilling subject of the super-soldier serum and the first Black Captain America, is the one that convinces Wilson to take over.
With the recent year creating a lot of awareness in people’s minds about racism and equality among races, this should be a powerful way for Marvel to bring that plot and empower those movements.
Anthony Mackie: "At the end of Avengers: Endgame, Sam never accepted the shield. Sam never said he was going to be Captain America. So, in the series, you learn who’s going to be Captain America, who the shield is passed down to, and where we go from there." from MarvelStudiosSpoilers
MCU has not seen its Black Captain America yet, and Isaiah Bradley may be the first Black Captain America in the comics, but he has some defects. But Wilson, on the other hand, is a perfect fit.
It would be a real treat to look at Falcon and Bucky team up and help keep the legacy of Captain America alive. With Wyatt Russel’s appearance and his craziness, we know no one is better suited for the role than Wilson.
With James Rhodes also set to make his appearance in the series, we are excited to know what every character will bring to the table.
Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be available to stream from March 19, 2021.
