Following the release of Avengers: Endgame, many fans were curious how Marvel Studios would handle the aftermath of the film. Well, according to the writer of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Derek Kolstad, the Disney+ series will explore the darker aspects of the new MCU.
While Spider-Man: Far From Home explored the post-Endgame world, it did so with a lighter tone. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will handle it with a different approach. During a Q&A with Kolstad on Twitter, via Discussing Film, the writer had this to say about the show’s tone:
“In a post-blip world, while touching upon the darkness of it all, there’s got to be some resilient fun to it”
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier feels like a great place to explore this tone given the Captain America franchise has typically maintained a similar style and tone. Focusing on much more mature topics like government interference and the public’s reaction to Falcon becoming Cap it wouldn’t work well with a light-hearted touch.
