Marvel just wrapped up its first Disney+ series, Wandavision, and is ready to drop its next on the streaming platform, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, on Friday. With that premiere coming up quickly, the studio has released a final trailer for the six-episode series, highlighting how Sam Wilson, Bucky Barnes, and the rest of the world are moving on from Captain America.
The series is part of Marvel’s first batch of streaming shows for the platform: It’ll be followed later this year by Loki and Hawkeye, all of which take place in the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame. During the finale of that film, we learned that Steve Rogers traveled back in time and remained in the 1940s, where he lived out his life, and ended up handing off his iconic shield to Sam Wilson (The Falcon).
That’s the setup for this latest trailer for the series, as both Sam and Bucky begin to figure out how to succeed their friend. We see Sam practicing with the shield, and Bucky tells him that while Captain America has passed on, it “still means something to a lot of people.”
It looks like the US has the same idea, as a suit tells a crowd that the country needs someone to inspire them again, and we’re back to the shot of someone dressed up as the Captain at a football game.
But the world’s radically changed, especially with Baron Zemo out hunting down superheroes with a band of masked minions. Cue up some violence, and Sam and Bucky realizing that if they’re going to take up Captain America’s place, they’ll have to do it their own way. And, as we’ve seen in prior teasers, they’re still bickering a bit.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier debuts this Friday, March 19th.
