Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan starrer ‘Falcon and Winter Soldier’ is coming to Disney Plus platform in 2020. Apart from the title being a lie, Marvel Studios don’t have a script ready yet.
Avengers: Endgame changed everything about the Marvel Universe. Since the highest-grossing movie of all times has come and gone, Marvel has revamped the entire scenario for ages to come. The fact that Steve Rogers and Tony Stark are no more and a character who has been playing small roles aka Falcon is now at the helm of Avengers. There may be a lot to say for how Falcon and Winter Soldier are going to be as a duo but many are unwilling to accept Falcon as Cap just yet.
Falcon and Winter Soldier is slated for a 2020 release date but the script, according to sources, is still a disaster. This is not news since filling in the shoes of Captain America is something we don’t expect from anybody. While Falcon was a good companion for Cap while he was still alive, Bucky was his best friend. Yes, Bucky Barnes has strengths and weaknesses of his own but transferring the role of Captain America to Falcon seems to be a wrong call.
Phase IV is a selling point for Disney Plus:
The fact of the matter is that Marvel Phase IV along with the Star Wars series coming to the platform are bait. Bait for the audience to join the platform and bring in traffic for Disney Plus in the already crowded Online Streaming world.
Falcon and Winter Soldier is one such bait for us all. There is no storyline set in stone yet, other than the fact that Zemo is coming in as a villain. Another reason as to why the people at Marvel have gone with the title “Falcon and Winter Soldier” is that people are gonna take time in accepting this fate. America is not known for its acceptance of people as they are, so, in a way, Marvel has made a smart choice with the title of the series. It still does not justify the fact that we are not gonna see Steve Rogers again. MCU is never gonna be the same.
Lack of character building for Falcon and Winter Soldier:
Falcon only saw the light of day in Captain America: Winter Soldier and has since been used as nothing more than a plot device. There is no logical reasoning for him to be Captain America, especially for the lack of Super Serum rampaging through his body. Captain America has no easy job, being as strong and resilient as he is even in the face of adversaries as big and bad as Thanos. Taking the mantle of Captain America is something not even Bucky Barnes would be able to do justice to.
Cap is capable of wielding Thor’s Mjolnir as well as Stormbreaker, nobody knows if Falcon is worthy of the Vibranium shield.
The leadership qualities of Captain America remain unseen in any other Marvel character we have seen to date. Except, perhaps Thor and Thanos. While we know that Cap is capable of wielding Thor’s Mjolnir as well as Stormbreaker, nobody knows if Falcon is worthy of the Vibranium shield. The cherished character, Steve Rogers at least lived the life he hoped for by going back to the past.
Is ‘Falcon and Winter soldier’ simply going to ruin the character of Captain America or will we see Falcon in a new light altogether?
