Potential Marvel, Disney show stirs debate about Captain America

  • According to Variety, Disney is developing a Marvel limited
    series starring Falcon and Winter Soldier.
  • It raises further questions about Captain America’s fate in
    “Avengers 4,” as the two are his best friends in the comics and
    Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  • If Captain America dies as speculated, a show starring the
    two could deal with the aftermath of that.


You haven’t seen the last of Falcon and Winter Soldier in the
Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The two may have vanished at the end of “Avengers: Infinity War”
from the Thanos snap, but lets be real: they’re coming back. And
when they do, they’ll reportedly star in a limited series on
Disney’s upcoming streaming service that is expected to debut
late next year.

According to Variety, “Empire” executive
producer Malcolm Spellman will write the series featuring Anthony
Mackie’s Sam Wilson/Falcon and Sebastian Stan’s Bucky
Barnes/Winter Soldier.

Disney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

This isn’t the first potential series spinning off of the MCU.
Variety reported in September that Disney is developing big-budget
Marvel shows
starring Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, Elizabeth
Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, and more.

Just as the Loki and Scarlet Witch shows could
raise questions about the future of the MCU, so too does this
potential Falcon/Winter Soldier series. In both the comics and
MCU, the two are Steve Rogers/Captain America’s best friends, so
it’s intriguing that they would get paired together considering
what Captain America’s fate could be in next year’s “Avengers 4.”

Actor Chris Evans recently said good-bye to the role in a
heartfelt message on Twitter
after the movie wrapped filming,
signaling that he is retiring from the franchise.

“Officially wrapped on Avengers 4,” he said. “It was an
emotional day to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8
years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera,
behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the
memories! Eternally grateful.”

It fueled further speculation that Captain America will
meet his end in “Avengers 4.” The character briefly dies in the
comics after the “Civil War” comic event, and Barnes takes his
place as Captain America. More recently, Wilson took on the role
as Captain America in the comics.

A series starring both of them could be a somber one if
Captain America does actually die in “Avengers 4,” as the two
would be reeling from his death and grappling with their roles as
superheroes going forward.
