The Falcon And The Winter Soldier Team Up With An Old Enemy

The halfway point of Disney and Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Solider served up some familiar callbacks from the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well as plenty of returning characters.

Episode three, entitled ‘Power Broker’ was lighter on set-up than the previous episode, but still introduced the Global Repatriation Council (a name that’s so purposefully innocuous it just has to be up to no good), an organisation that seeks to return the world to the way it was before the Blip. There’s also a new underbelly of shady activities in a place called Madripoor as well as the return of Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp). Carter is on the run from the US authorities after the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016).

The meat of the episode consists of Sam and Bucky’s quest to find the brains behind the latest super soldiers. This takes them to Germany, where they ally themselves with Zemo (Civil War‘s main villain), who escapes from prison to assist them. Zemo flies them in his private jet to the fictional island of Madripoor.

Daniel Brühl’s tongue-in-cheek portrayal of Zemo steals the show. His over-the-top scenery-chewing, politically incorrect exchanges with other characters are a delight. There’s a scene in which Zemo backs Sam up on how Marvin Gaye’s ‘Trouble Man’ soundtrack speaks to the black experience. Since the character is a rich white man, the culturally insensitive nature of this exchange is hilarious.

Stay tuned for more updates on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The next episode drops to Disney+ Hotstar on Friday, April 9.
