An official image for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier highlights the new suits for Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan). The two characters are finally stepping out of Steve Rogers’ shadow in Phase 4 and will help usher in a new era for the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney+. Mackie and Stan were originally scheduled to be the stars of the first MCU Disney+ series, but COVID-19 forced some delays.
Although Marvel Studios showed footage from The Falcon and The Winter Soldier near the very beginning of 2020, a more complete look at the series arrived recently. The teaser trailer kept the focus on Sam and Bucky’s new adventures and played up their great on-screen dynamic. With the footage mostly keeping Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl) out and barely showing a glimpse of the new Captain America, the focus stayed on Falcon and Winter Soldier. This included some teases of their non-superhero lives, but the action-packed trailer put them in the heat of battle multiple times.
The promotional train for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier continues to roll on, and the latest look comes straight from Disney. The studio released a fresh look at The Falcon and The Winter Soldier as part of their preview kit for 2021 content. Marvel Studios recently confirmed a March 19th, 2021 release date for the series with the trailer launch. This new image keeps the spotlight on Sam and Bucky, but it specifically highlights their stellar new costumes.
This is arguably the best look at their costumes that Marvel has released so far. Toys and come other promotional materials have offered a good idea of how Falcon and Bucky will look in the series. Sam’s new suit after Avengers: Endgame and before he presumably gets an actual Captain America suit is terrific and in pristine condition right now. Meanwhile, Bucky’s newer silver and gold vibranium arm shines bright here. If just having a metal arm was cool before, this image really makes the new design pop.
Although the context for Falcon and Bucky’s intense staredown isn’t known, both men appear prepared to jump into action. The trailer for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier did show Bucky running and Falcon flying out of a warehouse that looks similar to the one shown here. Perhaps they’ve just received vital information about their current mission. In any case, it won’t be long before fans get to discover what The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is all about and specifically what is happening here.
