Who will succeed Captain America? This is precisely the question asked by the series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Among the new trailers unveiled by Marvel Studios at the end of last year, we find the one for the series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, broadcast on Disney + from March 19. Unpublished images that highlight the importance of the symbol of Captain America in the episodes to come. It is indeed the legacy of the former leader of the Avengers that will be at the heart of the plot of the series, and in particular the choice of his replacement. Contrary to what the end ofAvengers Endgame suggests, the place is finally not yet officially taken, as recalled by Anthony Mackie, alias the Falcon, during a recent interview with Sirius XM.

“At the end of Avengers Endgame, Cap decides to retire and he asks me if I want to take over, but at no point do I accept or say that I will become Captain America. The series explores the question. who’s going to take back the shield and who’s going to be Captain America if Steve doesn’t come back. “ The choice of Steve Rogers could therefore ultimately not be heard. Especially since the government seems to have already found a replacement in the person of the US Agent, who was incidentally seen fighting with Captain America’s shield on video from the set of Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Despite everything, we can imagine the series gradually leading to an awareness in Sam Wilson, who would eventually feel up to it and would finally accept the mission entrusted by his best friend.
