New Falcon And Winter Soldier News Comes In Hilarious Fashion

Disney+ is practically here, and with the
new streaming service comes the promise of a whole new era for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Over the next several years, Disney+ will
roll out a number of original series that both take place in the MCU and star MCU actors
– including Loki, Hawkeye, and WandaVision. The first of these new MCU series to hit the
streamer will be The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian
Stan as the titular heroes-slash-BFFs of Captain America. And though the show isn’t slated to premiere
on Disney+ until fall 2020, filming has already begun, which Mackie and Stan have announced
in hilarious fashion. As is customary when celebrities are involved
with promoting a company’s product, Marvel Studios had Mackie “take over” its social
media accounts on Monday, November 4th. On Marvel’s Instagram Story, Mackie revealed
that he was taking control of the account at Marvel’s request, teasing VIP access and
saying it would be “Falcon all day.” But Marvel’s next Instagram Story was from
Stan, who said that he was taking over the account at the request of the studio. “What?! What just happened? I heard Sebastian’s on this account too, who
gave him the password?” This led to dueling stories from the two actors,
with each of them making their case as to why he was the right choice to run Marvel’s
Instagram account for the day. In the end, however, the rivalry was revealed
to be a ruse, as the two came together to reveal that production had started on The
Falcon and the Winter Soldier. “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier are in
production now.” So what do we know? On the series, both Sam Wilson, a.k.a. Falcon,
and Bucky Barnes, a.k.a. Winter Soldier, will try to figure out the best way to honor Captain
America’s legacy now that Steve Rogers has officially retired from the role. At the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame, the
elderly Rogers passed his shield on to Sam, effectively christening him as the next Captain
America. But just because Steve wanted Sam to be the
next Captain America doesn’t mean he will be. Mackie told IGN that he isn’t the new Captain
America at the start of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and series showrunner Malcolm
Spellman also said fans shouldn’t go into the show expecting a clean transition from
the end of Endgame. In addition to the two leads, at least two
more familiar faces from the MCU are returning for the series. Emily VanCamp will reprise her role as Sharon
Carter, the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who had a brief romantic fling with
Steve, and who, it must be noted, is the niece of Steve’s eventual wife, Peggy. Also back is Daniel Brühl as Helmut Zemo,
the main villain from Captain America: Civil War, who will also serve as the main antagonist
for the series – only this time, he’ll be wearing his purple mask from the comics. Rounding out the main cast is Wyatt Russell
as newcomer John Walker, a character with a 30-plus-year history in Marvel Comics under
the monikers Super-Patriot, U.S. Agent, and… Captain America. Marvel has been pretty tight-lipped when it
comes to the actual plot of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. That includes not revealing who, if anyone,
will be the next Captain America. Prior to Avengers: Endgame, many fans assumed
that either Sam or Bucky would take up the mantle of Cap, as both characters have had
stints as the star-spangled Avenger in the comics. After Endgame was released and Falcon received
the Shield – with Bucky’s blessing – it seemed pretty obvious that Sam Wilson would be the
next Cap. But with the comments made by Mackie and others
relating to Falcon’s status within the series, it seems that someone else may become Captain
America instead. And that may be where John Walker comes in. First introduced as Super-Patriot in the 1980s,
Walker is the opposite of Steve Rogers. Whereas Rogers is a patriot, Walker is a nationalist,
representing the less savory bits of America and fighting crime with much more brutality. When Steve Rogers gave up the title of Captain
America in 1987, the government selected Walker to take his place over Rogers’ friend Sam
Wilson. The reason? The powers that be didn’t think the country
was ready for a black Captain America. Could The Falcon and the Winter Soldier follow
the same plot? It’s hard to imagine Disney wading into this
kind of political territory for its first MCU series on Disney+, but as we saw with
Black Panther, the company’s subsidiary Marvel isn’t afraid to make a statement on issues
that matter. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Looper videos about the Marvel

  1. "How dare you", Looper! "How dare you!" Nationalism is NOT "the unsavory side of patriotism". Nationalism means putting the interests & well being of one's own country above that of other countries. If that makes you cringe in horror, then maybe you, Looper, should re-evaluate just how much of a "patriot" you really are.

  2. It is Sad Disney decided to put Steve Rodgers, Captain America out to pasture in favor of Falcon as the next Captain America, and the Winter Soldier as his sidekick. What audience is Disney going after? The Black Panther audience? They may want to keep that audience and add to it younger loyal followers of the MCU.

  3. Walker seems more like a white supremacist.. Or at least it seems that Marvel could go that route; first having the government making him the new Captain America only to find out later that it was a huge mistake.

  4. See I'm a black man and the Watchmen went down that territory it has already lost me now I'm a big fan of the Winter Soldier but go down this territory with this b***** and you will lose me. MCU you already f*** up my Hulk go down this territory and you will lose me.

  5. if memory serves me correct it was the Winter soldier that took up the mantle that's all the richness was supposed to be then later falcon that's how it's supposed to go I don't know about all this other s***but there's so many different versions different comic so it is what it is

  6. The only Disney+ show I'm interested in but I hope the writing could keep up with Markus & McFeely's.

  7. 2:30 i think would be interesting and behoove the show/franchise to have CA's brief fling turn out to have a bastard child turn mutated hero with Cap's morphed and enhanced genetics or DNA passed on to a boy (not female as it seems storylines are using females as badass heros as of late which is less realistic nor captivating) with the boy learning of his abilities similar to how Clark Kent aka Superman did.

  8. 4:05 not ready for "black" Captain America? Imo i think a black one would be good for the health of recital equality and acceptance, on top of which much of America was founded in and built with the aid of black people in general. All just my thoughts.
    Some my fav characters are black: War Machine and Black Panther,

  9. Eli Bradley/ Patriot and is introduced in this show. Thus begins the start of "Young Avengers" MCU team up movies. Kate Bishop will be introduced in the Hawkeye show

  10. Keep your politics out of the super hero movies. The political message is actually against the marvel universe message. Captain America stands for the USA and doesn't bash it or trash it with ridiculous claims like racism and gender inequality. Those are purposely spread by the leftists to create chaos so that socialism and comunism can take over. Captain America would fight against that.

  11. I love the Super Patriot storyline from the Captain America comics of the late 80's. It will not be the same without Steve Rogers unfortunately as the whole point of the story arc is to search Cap's feelings about serving his country and what that means. If they try to spin the story into "America isn't ready for a black Captain" it will be a disaster that immediately alienates huge portions of the fan base. I hope they are smarter than that.


  13. Oh. And I was worried that they were serious about the Instagram stories. Thank goodness it was all a ruse. 👌🏻

  14. dog tags is the first hint mannnnnn its gonna be good
    i could already speculate everything else now + baron zemo
    its gonna be hella good

  15. The 'Captain America No More' story line in the comics had nothing to do with Falcon becoming the new Cap. And I really hope they do John Walker justice in the series as he's my favorite character from the comics. I hope they eventually bring in Lamar/Battlestar, as he was a good moral compass for John, also.  Would love to see a USAgent and Battlestar series.  Am also looking forward to seeing Emily Van Camp back in action.

  16. Spiderman is black, nick fury is black, amazons are black, capt america is black, hymdale is black. Superman is black, human torch is black…TALK ABOUT CULTURE VULTURES

  17. Despite all these posts, business is going to pick up for Disney. And these wonderdul people who made these posts will be breakin thier necks streaming to watch this series!!

  18. A democratic captain America choses to pass down the title and no let’s not use the other soldier who becomes cap in the comics let’s use the back guy because of reasons and political correctness fuck your virtue signal they need a right wing captain not the leftist they have

  19. This might seem like a silly question, But do you have to watch these Marvel related shows on Disney +(plus) to keep in the loop of what happens in the future movies?….Or is it kinda like when “Shield” was on & it didn’t really matter if you watch the show or not…..

  20. If Bucky and Falcon aren't naked and banging each other by the end of the first episode, I'm out. It would just be too different from how they behaved in all of the MCU movies, you know?

  21. One important question and hopefully get the answer… does that make Steve a father figure or a blooded related father? cuz you know… Civil War with the kiss scene is bit like Star Wars V… time traveling is still confusing…

  22. I personally am looking forward to this ultimate bro mans team up .but as i said before the african american community will not accept the falcon in a red white and blue uniform so cut that out .but i cant wait for this show .the controversial winter soldier and the loyal good friend that everyone would want the falcon i cant wait .

  23. Bro, I have bills, not going to pay for any more services than I am now. No net neutrality also means we will all be BOHICA'd because all things will be streaming and no one will ever own a physical copy of anything ever again.

  24. Yeah…Disney has never made poor political statement choices with its movies before…Nooooooo….Oh, wait….Yeah, look what they did to Star Wars…If they do the same thing to the MCU, I am out as a fan…And so will ALOT of other ppl…

  25. a comedian said mentioned that once upon a time.
    White Captain America: Thanks for helping us out and stoping that crime.
    Black Captain America: Alright. What'd you have to do with this? You're under arrest.

  26. They're not going to make someone else hold the mantle of Captain America. Anthony Mackie might have explained that he was going to be the next one because he stated that he already went into a fitting room to dry out a new suit. This suit is most likely going to be his version of a Captain America suit, for why would it be anything else. He already has a tactical, effective aerial suit, so if he is going to get a new one, it might as well be a Captain America suit. Also, if this "Super Patriot" is going to be introduced, then it would be a waist of time. It wouldn't properly fit into the first season, which consists of only six episodes. The main villain has to be Zemo.

  27. Seriously we definitely need a black captain America cause these characters are just that characters…you get your panties in a bunch over this you have a problem…he would be great playing captain America because he is a great actor…not be cause he is black…I’m so sick of the ignorance of color it’s unbelievable
