We are only a week away from The Falcon and the Winter Soldier heading to Disney +. To help us get through these last few days of waiting, Marvel has released a couple of clips from the upcoming live-action series, as well as a new feature. The series sees the return of Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan as Falcon and Winter Soldier, who have been a welcome couple in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2016. Captain America: Civil War.
The first clip, titled “The Big Three”, sees Sam and Bucky arguing, which is a familiar pastime for them. They are discussing an unidentified threat, which Sam believes is one of the “big three”. He explains to a confused Bucky that these categories are androids, aliens, and wizards. Naturally, this leads to more disputes. The second clip is titled “What’s the plan?” Sam and Bucky travel in the back of a cargo plane preparing to be dropped off for a mission. The two look at each other silently before Bucky asks them about their plan. Sam chooses not to share his plan with Bucky and instead simply jumps out of the plane to do his thing.
As for the feature film, it’s a mix of footage, much of what we’ve seen in the trailers, plus some behind-the-scenes glimpses. It focuses heavily on the dynamics at play in the show, which is what MCU fans have become familiar with. Sam and Bucky don’t get along, but they’re willing to put that aside for the greater good. “It’s an example of the attraction of opposites. We couldn’t be more different,” says Anthony Mackie. Sebastian Stan explains that the confrontational nature is ultimately good for the show.
“There are definitely days when I feel like he could have killed me [laughs]. It’s like, you know, when you have a fly in your house and it just doesn’t go away. But we have a very good dynamic. “

This time, they embark on a global adventure that tests their skills and patience. The series is directed by Kari Skogland. Malcolm Spellman is the lead writer.
