A Falcon and the Winter Soldier trailer is out: are you excited?

Super Bowl Sunday is not just about the game. It is also about the hilarious commercials, the Halftime Show, and the new movie and show trailers throughout the night. Marvel and Disney+ took advantage of the estimated 100 million pairs of eyes to drop the Falcon and the Winter Soldier series trailer. Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be released on March 19th and will be the second TV series from the Marvelverse following WandaVision. Falcon will have 6 episodes and will chronicle a bad guy fighting partnership between Anthony Mackie’s Falcon (who received Captain America’s shield at the end of End Game) and Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier. The trailer shows the same screwball comradery between Bucky and Sam and looks as if it will have a lot of action sequences. Below is more about Falcon and the Winter Soldier from People:

In the trailer for the six-episode show set to connect the overarching Marvel movies, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan get comfortable as superhero costars on the small screen.

The trailer starts with Stan and Mackie’s characters (Bucky Barnes and Sam Wilson, respectively) being interviewed by a third person as someone asks, “Why does Sam aggravate you?”

Set to debut March 19, the trailer gives an inside look at some of the show’s action-packed scenes featuring the hero partners — and even a silly staring contest between the two.

The series was created by Malcolm Spellman and is directed by Kari Skogland. It’s set to take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame.

[From People]

I have been looking forward to all of the Marvelverse TV Shows especially after Agents of Shield went off the air. When I heard that I would be getting more Sebastian Stan on the small screen I was all in. So far I have been watching WandaVision and have been enjoying it. Especially all of the throwbacks to classic TV shows. WandaVision has been pretty solid.

I personally am not a big fan of Mackie but I do like him as Falcon and hope the show will have substance and less focus on pyrotechnics and action sequences. If they bring in Sebastian’s dry humor and Mackie’s goofiness, Falcon and the Winter Soldier may just be a hit. I am also looking forward to more of Tom Hiddleston as Loki in the Loki TV series that will be released in May and whatever Ryan Coogler and Kevin Feige put together for the upcoming Wakandaverse series.

With the exception of M.A.R.V.E.L Agents of Shield, Marvel’s TV shows have fallen flat in the past, unlike the DCU which normally does better on the small screen verses the big. However, if any of the upcoming Marvel + Disney+ shows have the same grit as WandaVision, I think Marvel will finally be able to gain a foothold in television as well. The DCU may find itself competing against the bigger budgets of Disney+.

Here’s the trailer:

    I love both Mackie and Stan and am totally excited for this!

  2. Case says:

    WandaVision has been one of my favorite things Marvel has put out to date, so yes, I’m excited for this! I’m not big on the Captain America storylines so I’m a less excited for this than Loki (which I’m nothing short of ecstatic about), but I’m sure it’ll be good and important to the story moving forward. I like Bucky and Sam.

    • Snazzy says:

      I haven’t watched WandaVision yet as I’m waiting for all of the episodes to drop so I can binge bit but I can’t wait for this one!

  3. harla says:

    I’m so excited!!! I really like their interactions with each other and neither of them are tough to look at either, so yeah I’m totally down for this show!

  4. Jamie says:

    I will take anything that gives me an excuse to stare at Sebastian Stan for an extended period of time.

  5. Rapunzel says:

    This trailer was better than the last, but I still can’t believe they gave the Captain America shield to… Papa Doc. I mean…his real name is Clarence and… he went to Cranbrook,
    …that’s a private school.

    I hope someone gets that reference . 🙂

  6. Snuffles says:

    I’m excited for ALL of it. I’m loving WandaVision, this looks fun, I can’t wait for Loki.

    I think the difference between this and past series on Netflix is that these are clearly made to be just limited series. Less than 10 episodes. You get tighter story telling that way and don’t have to stretch things out with filler episodes. No wondering what to do in future seasons. And they are all clearly designed as companion pieces to upcoming movies.

    WandaVision is supposed to lead into the next Spider-Man and Doctor Strange movies. The character of Monica Rambeau will be featured in the upcoming Captain Marvel movie. Loki will probably connect to the next Thor movie. And so on.

    It’s brilliant!

    • Rapunzel says:

      Yes, the best part of these Disney+ shows is that they connect to the movies and feature characters people already know and care about from the movies. And they’ll have impact on the movies. That’s a huge difference from the Netflix shows in particular.

      • SKF says:

        This is all true but I will say that I LOVED Jessica Jones, especially season one. That was a powerful show done well.

    • Case says:

      Yes, agreed. I love how they’re using limited series as a way to link between films. I think it’s a great format for the stories they’re trying to tell. And it also has a sense of intimacy that movies don’t — we already know and love all these characters, so it feels like a real treat to see them every week. I genuinely like all the Marvel characters and love seeing them in a new way.

  7. ClaireB says:

    I am not a huge fan of Anthony Mackie personally, but the friction between Sam and Bucky was my favorite part of the later Captain America movies, so I will probably watch this.

    I gave WandaVision a miss because I found the characters dull (and missed a couple movies that might have made me more interested) and I didn’t want to support Bettany being Depp’s wingman. I still don’t know if I’ll watch it, because it honestly sounds interesting and appeals to my Nick-at-Night watching soul.

    The reason I subscribed to Disney+ in the first place was for Loki. I was hoping for leather pants, but I’ll take what I can get!

    • Case says:

      ClaireB, I highly recommend picking up WandaVision again. The fourth and fifth episodes reveal a lot more about what’s going on and it’s very interesting and seemingly important for upcoming films.

      • Julie says:

        I absolutely love the throwback sitcoms. It’s just triggered a nostalgia for old sitcoms. Can’t wait to see how they represent 00s and 10s sitcom culture. Friends? How I met your mother? Office? Modern Family? I can even do without the Shield office scenes.

  8. ABritGuest says:

    Yes very excited for this. It looks good. Looking forward to Loki too

  9. Lightpurple says:

    Excited! And hoping they give Agent Sharon Carter more to do. She’s back too.

    • H says:

      As long as they don’t make her a love interest for Sam or Bucky, I’m good. I just want Sharon kicking as* and taking names.

  10. MF1 says:

    I’m excited for any TV show that’s serving up Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie week after week. I don’t even care about the plot, I just need these two handsome men on my screen. *fans self like a southern belle*

  11. FancyHat says:

    Pre-coffee I looked at this quickly and thought it was an ad for a new Psych movie and I got super excited.

    I’m less excited for this

  12. Eva says:

    Looks generic, and so same of the same from marvel. At least they’re tryimg something diferent with wandavision

  13. Roo says:

    This looks fun and I am down for it. It will be a supreme sacrifice to stare at their handsome faces, but I’m willing to do my duty. LOL

  14. ReginaGeorge says:

    Well, Sebastian Stan excites me, soo. Yes lol

  15. Cudd says:

    Sebastian Stan is the Marvel actor that travelled the world 1/2 of last year to COVID hotspots? With the gf that wears brownface to parties? That one?

    I don’t get how you guys excuse some actors for selfish harmful behavior during the pandemic/being ok dating legit racists, just bc they are hot, smh

    • Eva says:

      Most of Hollywood were travel a lot last year!! And Hollywood is coming back to work putting a lot of people’s live at risk. Cancel Hollywood!! A lot of celebrities date shit people, everyone dat shit people in their lives! Like, he’s not going to date you.

      • Cudd says:


        I’m a lesbian so no, I don’t want him to date me. Pretty sexist of you, Eva 👌 good job.
        Most ppl are capable of holding all celebs who have vacationed despite COVID accountable, not just your internet boyfriend.

        “Pick me! Pick me!” much?

  16. Pulplove says:

    I haven’t subscribed to Disney+ yet, but I will at the latest once the Loki show gets started.

    I like Sebastian Stan, but not Anthony Mackie. I can’t quite pinpoint it, it’s just bits and pieces I read and the vibe I get from him. To me, both the Winter Soldier and the Falcon are not really interesting characters and the trailer doesn’t make them anymore compelling. I would skip this, but I’m pumped to eventually catch up with WandaVision.

    • Kimberly says:

      I’m neutral about Sebastian Stan BUT I agree with you about Anthony Mackie. There’s something about him I never liked based on past and recent interviews I’ve seen & I can’t see to put a finger on it. When I also get that ‘vibe’ about ppl to, I’m usually right because they generally do or say something to prove me right, even if it takes 5, 10, 15 years etc……… I felt the same about (Scarlett Johannson) for E.G. LOL. That’s comparing apples & grapes but you catch my drift.

  17. Cat says:

    Can’t help but think this would have worked much better in the original timeline where black widow and FATWS came out first and then Wandavision then Loki. Wandavision is great story telling in a completely unique way that marvel has never done before and Loki seems to be the same judging by the awesome trailer. Whereas BW and FATWS look like a more generic fair. They look good don’t get me wrong but more simplistic and what we’ve came to know from marvel.

  18. Kelly says:

    I cant wait for this

  19. Tashiro says:

    R.I.P. Mary
    The Supremes were such a huge part of my pre-teen and teen years and beyond.

  20. The Recluse says:

    So looking forward to this! I haven’t watched Wanda Vision yet because, like The Mandalorian, I want to binge watch the whole series.

  21. Mia says:

    Haha I know they won’t, but I want them to hook up! They’d make a very cute couple.

    Also enjoying wandavision, the woman playing Captain Rambeau has the most gorgeous eyes 😭 she’s a great actress

  22. Steph says:

    I can’t wait!

  23. Wtf says:

    I have to say it. Mackie is what you get when there aren’t enough women of color in the casting room. Where is our eye candy? Cuz Mackie ain’t it. Sorry.
