- The Falcon and The Winter Soldier finale premiered on Friday, introducing Sam Wilson as the new Captain America.
Warning: Spoilers Ahead:
It was an emotional finale for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier fans as Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) finally identified himself as Captain America. From stopping the Flag Smashers' plans, with a little help from Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and John Walker (Wyatt Russell), to erecting a statue of Isaiah Bradley at the Captain America exhibit in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, Sam earned the title through the six-episode series.
The finale episode has fans lauding the new Captain America. They have embraced the new face and are eager to see more of him in the coming future. Some fans even noted that Steve Rogers (played by Chris Evans) would have been proud of Sam, especially after his moving monologue in the finale.
Over the past few weeks, fans had been speculating that Emily VanCamp's Sharon Carter is the Power Broker. The Falcon and The Winter Soldier's finale confirmed the theory. The episode also introduced the US Agent and teased Julia Louis-Dreyfus' future in the MCU in the mid-credits scene.
Hours after the finale premiered, Marvel Studios confirmed that a fourth Captain America movie is in the making. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier's showrunner Malcolm Spellman will be picking up Captain America 4. Spellman will reportedly co-write the script with Dalan Musson, a staff writer on the Disney+ show.
Although the casting is yet to be revealed, the finale episode hinted that Anthony and Sebastian could reprise their Marvel roles for the movie. While fans wait for Marvel Studios to reveal more details about the project, Marvel fans have numerous projects to look forward to.
