The film which is set in the post-Endgame world, has a mismatched duo who team up for a global adventure that will test their survival skills as well as their patience. The two heroes navigate their world with Captain America’s shield.
The Producer, Malcolm Spellman, in a conversation with TV Line, talked about the impact of Black Panther’s success, and how its global recognition have paved way for more superhero projects with Black protagonists like The Falcon And The Winter Soldier.
He wrote: “I believe that Falcon and the Winter Soldier is a nice progression with the mantle that Coogler (Black Panther director Ryan), and Chadwick (Boseman) left us. I really do believe that these giant Black icons are necessary, not only for Black kids, but for white kids to start to absorb — our people as being big and heroic.”
“When you start to see the direct impact that a Black superhero had on my nephew, that’s branded on my brain,” he added.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has Mackie playing Sam Wilson, who inherited Steve Rogers’ shield at the end of Avengers Endgame and Stan playing Bucky Barnes, the hero-turned-villain-turned-hero character who shared an unshakable bond with Rogers.
Marvel Studios, who is at present handling the first season of WandaVision, also announced the special documentary series titled Assembled, which explores the making of MCU shows and movies with interviews of cast and crew members.
