New “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” Teaser & Images Hype Marvel’s Next Series

The last few days have brought a lot of exciting news about Marvel’s next big Disney+ series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and we’ve compiled it all together for you for a little Friday feast. There’s a new, action-packed teaser. There’s a bevy of new photos. And, there’s the reaction from assorted critics who have gotten a sneak peek at the series. All of this combines into some excellent pre-release hype. If you were only marginally interested in the series, we’re guessing that’s about to change. If you were looking forward to it, prepare to be properly enthused.

First, a brief primer. The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is almost like a bizarro negative image to Marvel’s first Disney+ series, WandaVision. In that series, superhero couple Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) are living in a sitcom world that’s way more sinister than one might expect at first blush. And while WandaVision has gotten increasingly dark and twisted, the series still functions as a comedy-drama with a Marvel twist. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, on the other hand, features another superpowered couple (of sorts), only this duo replaces romance for bickering, and comedy/drama for straight-up action.

The Falcon, known to his family and friends as Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), has never gotten along all that well with Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). They were enemies in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), and frenemies in Captain America: Civil War (2016). Yet begrudgingly, the two have become very capable partners when it comes to fighting bad guys. Heck, at the end of Avengers: Endgame, it was Bucky who seemed to know what was about to happen—that Cap (Chris Evans) was about to hand over his shield to Sam, and he supported the decision. Also, unlike WandaVision, which runs at around 30 minutes an episode, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will consist of six hour-long eps. That’s essentially two Avengers: Endgames worth of Falcon/Winter Soldier action. 

Let’s have a look at yesterday’s teaser. In just half a minute, quite a bit of adrenalin going on here. It speaks to what the folks who have seen a bit of the series have been reporting—The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is hardcore action.

Now let’s take a look at what some of the folks who have seen bits of the series have said:

This series sounds like it’s a very hard pivot from the sublime, sitcom-situated weirdness of WandaVision, which is a great thing. The Falcon and The Winter Soldier arrives on Disney+ on March 19. Check out the photos below:
