The next Disney + show The Falcon and the Winter Soldier it is in some ways the most important project for the next phase of the MCU. That’s because the show is set to advance the story of Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, one of the original mainstays of the MCU. Only this time, the story will focus on Steve’s allies, Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes, and how the world deals with Captain America’s legacy.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Director Kari Skogland explained in a recent interview that the series will grapple with what Steve’s legacy means to the modern world.
“The central idea of where the shield was given to Sam and what was it going to be and what is that, what is that exploration? Will he or will he not assume what it is going to be for a black man? Carry the shield? What is the relevance of Captain America? Is there a Captain America that already makes any sense? All those questions that I thought were very important today to not only discuss, but also to do a real exploration in a kind of deep dive. “
In the movies, the stories of Sam and Bucky have always been secondary to Steve’s adventures. Now with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, the duo will finally get a chance to shine in multiple episodes exploring the events afterAvenger: Endgame, when Steve passes his shield to Sam, who must now decide how to honor his friend’s legacy. According to Skogland, the fact that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier it is a series and not a movie allows better moments of characters.
“On the other level was the nature and depth of these characters that we were able to do in a space of 6 hours compared to … I call it the food versus the snack. 6 hours is the food and the function is now the snack. And there’s plenty of room for snacks, but I love meals because you don’t feel like you have these time constraints where you’re trying to cram too much into too short a space and the characters can live and breathe. And you’re not sweating the ” I better finish this “too fast. You can let it brew and let us worry about the character or be with the character. I really looked for acting opportunities and found getting started, it was going to be a challenge for the actors to find those moments and the table was set. prepared to do their great job and they did. “
Now it remains to be seen whether The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will end with a new Captain America, or if Sam and Bucky will decide that Steve was the only one worthy of the title and will officially remove the nickname “Captain America” from the MCU superhero roster.
