The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is the second of Marvel’s Disney+ series. I wasn’t super excited about the idea when I heard it announced, but after some time I was willing to give it a try. Was this one as good as WandaVision?
Obviously taking place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, Sam Wilson has been given the Captain America shield by Steve Rogers himself. While many thought he was going to become Captain America, Falcon decides to give the shield up to a museum.
And both Falcon and Bucky Barnes are horrified to learn that the U.S. government took the shield and gave it to a new soldier named John Walker. While he’s not a super soldier like Steven Rogers was, he’s hoping to be a hero just like him. He’s obviously not going to get a warm welcome from every Avenger.
The newest threat to the Earth is a new generation of super soldiers. Being outmatched by numbers, the former Winter Soldier decides to break Baron Zemo out of prison as he can’t stand the thoughts of super soldiers like Captain America. Will this alliance of good and evil work out for the best?
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier actually was much better than I expected. The first episode wasn’t the greatest but I ended up binging the the majority of the season. It’s a little worse than WandaVision, but both are about par with each other.
