Disney+ has debuted the first trailer for the new show The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, giving us our first real look at the show many fans are extremely excited about. Following on from the frankly traumatising ending of the fourth Avengers film, Endgame the show has been long awaited alongside WandaVision. The show features two primary characters from phase three of the Marvel Universe, Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan).
The action-packed trailer shows us both the rivalry and possible reluctant friendship between two of Captain America’s friends. Cutting between intense action sequences, comedic insults and what appears a mediated therapy between the two, their relationship takes on a begrudging tolerance and sets the show up to be highly entertaining. This alongside the fact that the cast is already well-known and well-loved by Marvel fans, the show is sure to be a huge hit!
The elephant in the room is clearly the use of Cap’s shield. Throughout the trailer we see it tossed between both Sam and Bucky which is sure to be the cause of a few raised eyebrows. The trailer is setting the show, directed by Kari Skogland to be hugely popular with just under eight million views within three days of its release, but it does leave us with one question.
Who will wield the shield?
