Who is in the cast of the Falcon/Winter Soldier TV series?
Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie will, of course, reprise their roles as the titular superheroes.
There have also been reports that Captain America: Civil War star Daniel Bruhl will return to the MCU as Zemo – the criminal mastermind who drove a wedge between Captain America and Iron Man – alongside Emily Van Camp reprising her role as Sharon Carter (Peggy’s Niece).
We wonder if Peggy ever found out about that kiss Sharon and Steve shared…
What is the Falcon/Winter Soldier TV series about?
In Avengers: Endgame, after the dust had settled on the climactic battle with Thanos and his goons, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) ventured back into the past to return the stolen Infinity Stones to their rightful place in time and space, and returned an elderly man, effectively ending his tenure as Captain America. He then handed his shield to Sam, presumably passing on the mantle of Captain America, too. But does he have what it takes to be America’s Ass?
The series is expected to follow on from Avengers: Endgame, so we should get some answers on that here.
As for Bucky, he’s no longer under the control of evil institution Hydra, and he’s now got a shiny new Vibranium arm courtesy of the good people of Wakanda. If he can get past the jealousy that his best pal chose Falcon as his successor, then these two could make a fine crime-fighting duo.
“I think it’s time for Bucky to go out there and have an identity outside of the circumstances that we’ve met him through,” Stan said of his man out of time while attending an Italy convention.
“So, I don’t know, he might do all kinds of things. He might even go on a date. I don’t know. Scary world out there, you know? Apps, things like that. I don’t know what he’s gonna do. I can’t see him on an iPhone… I think it’s gonna be a lot of dealing with Anthony’s character.”
Could Peggy Carter be a love interest for either superhero? And is Zemo going to be the baddie? We’ll have to wait and see…
