In a recent interview with Vanity Fair’s Still Watching podcast, producer Nate Moore continues to hype up the fifth episode, teasing that it will definitely be the MCU series’ strongest one. “Five really gets to be the culmination of the theme. And I do think both from an acting standpoint and from a filmmaking standpoint, it’s our strongest episode.”
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier picks up from the events in which Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon, was gifted the iconic vibranium shield from Steve Rogers in order to take up the mantle of Captain America while Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier, retains his moniker but uses it for heroism instead. Despite this, Sam seeks to forge his own path and retire the Cap moniker to properly honor Steve’s legacy while Bucky undergoes therapeutic treatment to correct the wrongs of his past, but when a new threat to the world emerges and the US decides to elect a new Cap with more questionable morals, the titular duo must team up on a global adventure that will test their abilities — and their patience.
The series is led by Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan along with Captain America: Civil War stars Daniel Bruhl, Emily VanCamp and Don Cheadle, who are reprising their roles as Helmut Zemo, Sharon Carter, and James Rhodes aka War Machine respectively. It also stars MCU newcomers Wyatt Russell as John Walker, Danny Ramirez as Joaquin Torres, Erin Kellyman as Karli Morgenthau, Adepero Oduye as Sarah Wilson, Carl Lumbly as Isaiah Bradley, Miki Ishikawa, Desmond Chiam, and Noah Mills.
Kari Skogland directs all six episodes of the MCU series from a screenplay written by head writer Malcolm Spellman with John Wick creator Derek Kolstad also part of the series’ writing/creative team.
The first four episodes of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier are already available for streaming on Disney+.
