On the heels of WandaVision, Disney’s much-anticipated (and, post-Episode 3, thoroughly entertaining) Avengers Endgame follow-up, comes Falcon and the Winter Soldier. I am thrilled to see the original Captain America’s (Steve, played by Chris Evans) besties holding their own as lead actors in their own show.
In the first episode, Falcon (fellow New Orleanian Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) are adjusting to life post-Blip and realizing that saving the world doesn’t automatically entitle you to tangible benefits. Though Steve passes his shield onto Falcon after “retiring,” Falcon feels like it still belongs to Steve and donates the shield to the government. However, much to his chagrin, but not entirely a secret to die-hard Marvel fans, there is a new Captain America in town.
At the end of the first episode, John Walker (Wyatt Russell, Kurt Russell’s and Goldie Hawn’s son) is introduced to the world as the new Captain America, and wait … he’s holding Steve’s shield! Not surprisingly, Falcon and Bucky are not fans of the new Captain America, but animosity aside, he seems pretty impressive. In Episode 2, he comes to Falcon’s and Bucky’s rescue during a raid on the Flag Smashers (new super soldier villains).
Everyone knows that it is hard to fill Steve’s shoes (Don’t forget that Steve actually caught Thor’s hammer, Mjölnir!), but citizens of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are looking for a new hero after all they’ve been through. But is Walker the right choice? The comics ultimately reveal that Walker is “U.S. Agent,” an anti-hero, but will the series stick to the comics?
