Marvel’s ‘Falcon And The Winter Soldier’: Our Favourite Theories

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is the first of Disney+ Hotstar’s Marvel series lineup, set for release in August. Considering it’s set in the immediate aftermath of Avengers: Endgame which was a massive game-changer for the MCU, fans are excited to see what the post-Endgame Marvel Universe has in store. We won’t have to wait long, but in the meantime here are some things that we’d like to see from the series.

Sam Wilson Becoming The New Captain America

In Avengers: Endgame, Steve Rogers passed the mantle of Captain America on to Sam Wilson (Falcon). While Falcon America would be awesome to see on any screen, big or small, Captain America’s shoes are some big ones to fill. It would be great to see Sam struggle with his new duties of upholding Cap’s values: courage, integrity, honesty and punching Nazis in the face before finally growing into the role.

Bucky Getting Over A Traumatic Past

Steve Rogers’ life-long friend Bucky Barnes was captured by Hydra and brainwashed into becoming the agent known as The Winter Soldier. Under the effects of this brainwashing, he did some deplorable things, including and not limited to assassinating Tony Stark’s parents. Being brainwashed by a cabal of techno-Nazis and murdering innocent people is not something you get over by taking some time off to “work on yourself” and get spa treatments. It would take a long time and a lot of work for Bucky to come to terms with his past. This would make for a great potential character arc for him in Falcon and The Winter Soldier.

Taking On The Yakuza

In Endgame, Clint Barton left behind his superhero identity of Hawkeye and became Ronin, a violent samurai vigilante who took on international criminals, like the yakuza (there were still criminals in the US, but Clint going missing in Japan equals dramatic tension).

The IMDb cast and crew page reveals that the yakuza could show up again in an episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Two actors are listed as portraying members of the yakuza, one stuntman is credited as  “yakuza bike rider”.

With Clint having killed a yakuza boss in Endgame, it’s possible that Falcon and Winter Soldier will face backlash from the Japanese mafia in the series.  Gotta say, seeing the pair take on the organised crime syndicate in Japan would be a ton of fun to watch.

Zemo Returns

With the first look at Daniel Brühl’s return as Zemo released, courtesy of the actor himself on his Instagram, we know for sure that he will feature in the series. While Marvel themselves haven’t confirmed any details on what role the Civil War big bad will play on the show, there are now on-set photos of the actor. What’s telling about these paparazzi photos is that the actor is not being filmed fighting against Falcon and Winter Soldier, but alongside them. It seems that regardless of his hatred of the Avengers and his desire to discredit and disassemble them, Zemo might end up working with the heroes in the series.
