Marvel wowed audience with WandaVision, their first foray into streaming television series. Up next is The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, which starts its six-episode run on Disney+ March 19. We first met our titles heroes, played respectively by Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan back in The Captain America movies. They’ve been a staple in the Avengers franchise since then, but we haven’t really gotten to known them on a deeper level until now. The Falcon and The Winter Soldier picks up following the events of Avengers Endgame. Both are navigating the world without Steve Rogers/Captain America. Sam is still flying all over the world as The Falcon saving the day and is recognized wherever he goes for being an Avenger. Bucky Barnes, The Winter Soldier, is plagued with nightmares and is a bit ambivalent during his therapy sessions. Deep down he understands he must make amends with his adversaries if he wants to move on.
