Wednesday morning, former Disney CEO, Bob Iger, presented shareholders with the company’s upcoming plans at the annual investors meeting. This included an early look at Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
A description of the footage shown has since surfaced and teases some exciting moments in the show. The full breakdown can be found below.
The footage shown felt like an extended trailer, starting with Bucky paying a visit to Baron Zemo in a state of the art prison, who tried to unsuccessfully activate his Winter Soldier programming. Bucky told him that someone has recreated the Super Soldier Serum.
Another clip showed some kind of a rally where cheerleaders and a stage were decorated with red, white, and blue Captain America insignia. The announcer introduced the new Captain America and then the camera cut to someone backstage in silhouette with the shield. It was unclear if it was actually Falcon in the suit.
A montage of action sequences included Zemo fighting in his iconic mask from the comics. It wasn’t clear from the short clip if he was fighting with Falcon and the Winter Soldier or against them.
Lastly, we saw Bucky approach Sam Wilson and discussed that they’re not really friends. More like two guys who had a mutual friend who now need each other.
The most exciting aspect of this description is the opening scene with Zemo and Bucky. As was teased in set photos and the Disney+ Superbowl trailer Zemo will break free from his prison. Therefore, this sequence must take place very early in the season. This scene also sounds like the villain could have a Hannibal Lector type role if Bucky is confronting him about the new Super Soldier Serum.
The second clip sounds like the opening to one of the shots of the Superbowl trailer, which showed U.S. Agent running into a football stadium of cheering fans.
Finally, the scene between Bucky and Sam is interesting as it teases a new dynamic between the characters. Many fans have long thought of the two as friends, but this draws that idea into question.
