After 84 years, Marvel has finally unleashed the trailer for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and it looks like an absolute treat.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier picks up after the events of Avengers: Endgame. In it, Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) link up in a global adventure to, well, kick more ass.
The series was supposed to premiere last August, but the pandemic put a stop to that (and just about everything else). Ah well, we got there in the end.
Daniel Brühl has reprised his role as total baddie Helmut Zemo, alongside Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter.
The series is directed by Kari Skogland, who has The Handmaid’s Tale, The Walking Dead, and The Punisher to her name. Tick, tick, tick, tell ya what.
The Falcon And The Winter Soldier premieres March 19 on Disney+.
Honestly, if it’s anywhere as good as WandaVision then I’ll be one happy camper.
Marvel has a big year ahead of it, as it continues to introduce fans to Phase Four of the MCU.
In May, the Loki series will make its debut on Disney’s streaming service, starring Tom Hiddleston as the god of mischief. A lot of antics to follow, I assume.
There’s also Hawkeye and the animated series What If?
The Black Widow film, starring Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh, will premiere April 29, followed by Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings on June 8.
Simu Liu, best known for his role in Kim’s Convenience, will make his debut as the titular hero in the film, co-starring Awkwafina and Benedict Wong.
Marvel will also unleash the Eternals this year, set after the events of Endgame. The film will follow a group of very, very old aliens who have been secretly living on Earth for thousands of years, but are forced to come out of the shadows and reunite against their ancient enemy, the Deviants.
The film stars Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, the now-buff Kumail Nanjiani, Salma Hayek, and Kit Harrington.
Marvel’s current collection of films are available to stream on Disney+ now, including the latest episode of WandaVision which left me gasping for air.
New episodes of the very weird, but very good series hit the streaming service on Fridays.
