The Falcon And The Winter Soldier Plot Was Shaped By Endgame

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier finale

As per the title, how does Avengers: Endgame shape The Falcon and The Winter Soldier plot? Infinity War, and then Endgame 5 years later (in Universe) changed the MCU forever. That climactic set of events and the 5 year absence of half the world’s population was huge. How does a world go back to the way it was after such an incredible event? I think the answer is, it doesn’t. According to The Falcon and The Winter Soldier showrunner Malcolm Spellman those events are pivotal to the show.

This weekend saw a global press event for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, for which LRM were in attendance.

Showrunner Spellman weighed in on how The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will address the fallout from Endgame.

“I think what worked out really nicely was that where Endgame leaves off, dispatching Thanos has created a situation where the entire world is dealing with one single issue…which is very familiar to what’s going on today,” he explained. “Everything is born from that. The villains in this series are responding to that. In fact, every villain in this series would tell you that he or she is a hero.”

“The heroes are responding to that in their personal lives, and that A-Story plot is all born from one single organic thing in this continuum from what happened after Endgame,” Spellman continued. “That galvanizes and affects everyone on the planet at the same time and creates a nice cohesion and direct lineage to the MCU.”

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier plot

I love the idea of villains feeling like they are the hero. I tend to prefer villains which have a purpose they believe is just, despite how warped their logic is. There is a place or the purely malevolent nihilistic villain from time to time, but they can overstay their welcome. When I look at the whole of the MCU I would rate my favorite villains thus, roughly speaking. Thanos, Wilson Fisk, Zemo, Vulture, Mysterio, Pierce, and of course Loki. But hey that’s just my opinion. I remember reading a list online somewhere of a list of Marvel villains ranks worst to best. I don’t think I agreed with a single choice of theirs so it’s all opinions.

How does Endgame shape The Falcon and The Winter Soldier plot? It seems quite a bit, and that’s no bad thing. As always, leave any thoughts you have below.
