The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s story has concluded in spectacular trend (#nospoilers (but)) and we’re nonetheless reeling. This present bought our adrenaline going each single week—or perhaps that was simply the espresso wanted to correctly get up and take on this present at daybreak so Twitter couldn’t spoil it. Both method, this present gave us pleasure and motion not like any we’d seen within the MCU earlier than. Visceral, emotional, brutal—like, Captain America decapitated a man. Did we overlook that? Have we moved on? That was subsequent stage wild.
So, what’s in retailer for the solid of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier? The place will they pop up subsequent and will this present get the second season it so clearly deserves? We’ll get into that, however first, we’ll do a fast recap of how Falcon and Winter Soldier wrapped up.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier finale defined:
SPOILERS AHOY: Sam Wilson turns into Captain America. He flies into motion and stops the Flag Smashers from taking a group of extremely influential politicians hostage and, with the assistance of Winter Soldier and—whoda thunk?—John Walker, he managed to maintain everybody alive. Properly, each politician. Sharon Carter shot Batroc and head Flag Smasher Karli, leaving them each lifeless. And, uh, Zemo had his butler rig up an NYPD van with explosives to kill all the opposite Flag Smashers. One in all them did survive, although! He’s the final Smasher standing, and who is aware of what intel he can present (if he cooperates).
So the place does this depart our solid? Karli Morgenthal is lifeless, however Captain America took her trigger to the very politicians she tried to homicide and advised them to form up and do the correct factor for Karli and folks like her. Sharon bought that full pardon Sam promised her, however—ugh—Karli additionally outed her because the Energy Dealer. Oh, humorous how the 2 folks Sharon killed had been the 2 individuals who knew that info. Huh! So now Sharon’s again working for the federal government and getting ready to promote categorized information and tech to whoever’s shopping for. John Walker was recruited by Julia Louis-Dreyfus and given a new identify: U.S. Agent.
Bucky lastly made amends for all of his unhealthy deeds, even coming clear to his aged lunch pal Yori. And Sam absolutely assumed the position of Captain America, and used his newfound standing so as to add an Isaiah Bradley statue to the Smithsonian’s Captain America exhibit. The world will know his story.
Will The Falcon and Winter Soldier have a Season 2?
The reply is: we don’t know! Not but, at the least. All of Marvel’s Disney+ reveals had been initially introduced as being restricted collection. Nevertheless, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige isn’t ruling out Season 2s for any of these shows. And why would he?! The response to TFATWS has been constructive, and Disney has often touted the collection as having the perfect rankings within the platform’s historical past. If The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was its personal factor and didn’t star two in-demand actors, it’d most likely roll out a Season 2 subsequent spring. However The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is a part of the MCU, which suggests it has to suit into the bigger narrative. And it does star two in-demand actors, so Disney should get Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan’s schedules lined up earlier than a Season 2 may occur.
What’s subsequent for Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes, a.okay.a. Captain America and the Winter Soldier?
Uh, we don’t know but! Severely, there have been no indications that the present would come again. We don’t even know if both character has a film look on the horizon. All now we have proper now’s hope that the brand new Captain America’s story is simply starting.
