The Falcon and Winter Soldier series of Disney+ is finally coming this month! Marvel fans around the world are excited to finally see Sam Wilson inherit the mantle of Captain America as he fights alongside Bucky Barnes, the Winter Soldier.
We’ve luckily gotten a handful of trailers and footage of the show from Marvel, but we still don’t know much about what to expect from the series. Sam and Bucky are definitely an unlikely duo that we mostly saw bickering whenever they were on screen together in Captain America: Civil War, and watching them learn to fight alongside each other and put their abilities to the test as they take on the anti-patriotism group, The Flag-Smashers, will definitely be interesting.
However, TV critics recently got the opportunity to see exclusive footage from the show in advance. Generally, all the reviews so far seem to reach a consensus: The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, based on what they’ve seen so far, is classic MCU action and comedy that fans know and love. So, if that’s something you were missing while watching WandaVision’s more campy storytelling, then this might be what you’re looking for.
Critics noted that the fight scenes don’t hold back and that they’re a lot more intense and bloody than they would’ve expected. Of course, they also mentioned that Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan are stellar so far and are definitely making each scene work.
