The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is nearly definitely going to arrange ties to X-Males characters but it surely’s additionally going to herald loads of Captain America drama within the aftermath of Steve Rogers. A brand new trailer for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier dropped throughout the Tremendous Bowl and this one has Sam-Bucky supremacy written throughout it from the bounce — prefer it actually begins with Sam leaping and Bucky being irritated… carry on the couple’s counseling. All through its all too quick look into what’s coming into the subsequent Disney+ collection from Marvel Studios, there aree loads of Easter eggs, characters, and comedian ties to take a more in-depth have a look at.
Get a full breakdown with comedian photographs and photographs of the trailer within the video above!
The entire opening sequence of the trailer is a reference to Cap famously leaping out of a airplane with no parachute, which we noticed from him in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and I can’t assist however really feel like Bucky’s query of “What’s our plan?” is a reference to Iron Man saying, “I’ve a plan. Assault.” earlier than he jumped out of a Quinjet in The Avengers. Then once more, Avengers do love the theatrics.

The skyline we see is Madripoor, a location that Disney couldn’t use till they purchased Fox and obtained all the X-Males film rights again. Madripoor is basically an excellent corrupt metropolis that exists actually by itself island in southeast Asia. It protects its criminals from being extradited and has robust ties to mutant characters, particularly Wolverine, who — in comics — fought in Madripoor throughout World Warfare II — curiously sufficient, he teamed up with Cap there. Will any of that matter right here? Perhaps. WandaVision appears to have loads of X-Males nods but it surely all could be wishful considering as a result of we’re all simply desirous to see Kevin Feige do his model of tales with mutants.
The villain is Baron Zemo, he’s getting his full on purple masks this time. I first noticed him put that masks on when the present was formally introduced at San Diego Comedian-Con in 2019 however I don’t assume that has made its manner on-line but — not legally anyway. He’s again to attempt to rid the world of tremendous heroes after failing to take action in Civil Warfare and he would possibly find yourself on a Thunderbolts squad as a result of he’s clearly leaning into the all too topical tactic of dividing folks and with X-Males on the horizon, the Avengers all scattered, and no matter else is happening — he could be attempting to drum up a little bit squad of his personal, If it will get us Purple Hulk within the MCU, I’m right here for it.
There was hypothesis that his purple masks within the MCU could be impressed by Thanos, which might be nothing greater than a enjoyable thought, although.

Zemo’s little minions are Flag-Smashers, they appear to be a nod to the Flag-Smasher character from Marvel Comics, also called Mark Gruenwald. In the event that they comply with his comedian lead, the MCU Flag-Smashers will basically be radicalized Captain America haters seeking to create and incite chaos.
There’s an fascinating shot of a excessive rating gown blues army uniform, this could possibly be Don Cheadle’s Warfare Machine. Cheadle did spill that he’s on this present in a latest interview and his Rhodie is fairly adorned.
This could be a coincidence however an enormous poster of Steve Rogers is on Sam’s left, referencing, effectively…. Sam appears to be mourning the protect that was given to him as if he has to present it up, which in all probability means they’re protecting up Steve’s option to stay within the alternate timeline and never simply saying, “Nicely, he obtained previous and gave it to me.” The MCU thinks Steve Rogers is lifeless, and he could be after that opening sequence in Spider-Man: Far From Dwelling put him in the identical memorial video as Black Widow and Iron Man.
Sam throws the protect. Bucky catches it. In comics, each have been Captain America so there’ll in all probability be some toying round with that. A second later, the tight shot of Falcon’s face whereas he’s flying looks as if it could possibly be the brand new equal of that Tony Stark shot inside his helmet when he would discuss whereas flying.

Sharon Carter, who was final seen in Captain America: Civil Warfare, is lastly again and he or she is a complete bad-ass and he or she’s not solely about to bail out Bucky and Sam however I additionally assume she’s going to be a supply of data. We noticed on a t-shirt that she’s “WANTED” for breaking the Sokovia Accords, so she’s in all probability spending a while in Madripoor, possibly transferring there throughout the blip if she wasn’t snapped, and attending to know the imply streets. No matter Bucky and Sam are on the lookout for, she in all probability has some solutions.
US Agent trots onto a soccer discipline at some form of massive rally. This man is just about going to be a authorities prop as a brand new Captain America image however his actual identify is John Walker and he has been a hero however he’s additionally been a villain and I can see each Sam wanting that protect from him and Baron Zemo wanting to make use of him to incite some form of division.
In some unspecified time in the future, Sam is getting that protect, as a result of this shot of him with it’s simply superior and I can’t look forward to his entire go well with to be Falcon-Captain America-d up. I don’t assume he throws the protect at this explosion, I believe Baron Zemo is behind that as a result of he’s simply hanging out on the backside of the body all too cool for it to be a shock to him.
A girl within the Flag-Smashers, in all probability some high-ranking member and recurring character will get the perfect of Bucky, which could imply she is an enhanced particular person, and Bucky falls off the aspect of a truck and also you simply can’t assist however be reminded of how Bucky fell out of a practice and off of a mountain in Captain America: The First Avenger. Given how manipulated his mind has been, you need to marvel if this causes PTSD.
The trailer ends on a cute couple’s counseling second the place they stare at one another form of like how I’ve been watching this trailer.
