While Marvel Studios has managed to dominate the box office, they will soon be diving into another world: the world of streaming. Disney+ is just over a week from its release, and while Marvel won’t be putting out any of its shows for a while, their first one, The Falcon and Winter Soldier, is currently in production, with a Fall 2020 release date in mind.
As the title indicates, the show will follow Sam Wilson — the new Captain America — and Bucky Barnes, who will be working together to help continue the legacy of Steve Rogers. While most fans seem to be on board with Sam picking up the shield, Avengers: Endgame screenwriter Christopher Markus spoke to Coming Soon to discuss their reasoning behind this choice.
“The figure of Captain America has always been an aspirational thing about the true promise of what the idea of America could be. He doesn’t work for the government, he’s an idea, and I think Sam embodies that much more than Bucky.”
And as far as what Sam brings in terms of story potential, co-screenwriter Stephen McFeely said:
“I think there’s just more interesting stories with Sam going forward, if I’m just being mercenary about storytelling. I don’t know what they’re going to do with Buck and the Winter Soldier, but I’d like to see the Sam story. Undoubtedly, there’s a story if Bucky were to put the shield on, but you can already predict that, right? Like, some people are not going to be happy about that because of crimes in his past. We talked to Malcolm Spellman. [John Wick writer] Derek Kolstad I think got brought on later to the show, so Malcom’s the creator. We talked to him a little bit, but he’s been pretty cagey. So I don’t know actually everything he has in mind. I know they’re about to start shooting. So I guess I’m just passing the buck on that. I’m eager to see it.”
