There’s no manner Wyatt Russell is definitely going to carry onto the roll, proper? (Proper?!) So ought to we assume that Sam Wilson (aka, Falcon) will finally reclaim the protect? That’s in all probability a secure guess, however a brand new Falcon and the Winter Soldier might affirm who the brand new Cap is as soon as and for all. Warning! Attainable spoilers forward.
Courtesy of the online Disney store from Chinese language retail website TMall (through Reddit), we’ve seen the way forward for Falcon and the Winter Soldier within the type of some Sam and Bucky motion figures. Bucky seems to be like his outdated self (no White Wolf outfit right here), however Sam is clearly labeled as “Captain America” and he’s rocking a reasonably wild new outfit.
Falcon nonetheless has his jet-powered wings, however your complete outfit (wings included) has been repainted in crimson, white, and blue. Close to the underside of the field, you too can clearly see Cap’s protect alongside what seems to be a quartet of missiles. (See the images for yourself here.)
It’s no enormous shock that Sam Wilson is ready to be the brand new Captain America. Clearly, the Marvel Cinematic Universe wants somebody in that function, and solely Sam has the unique Cap’s express approval. How Falcon will reclaim the title and protect from John Walker stays a thriller.
Then once more, that is only a photograph of a toy from a Chinese language web site. It could possibly be faux. Perhaps Falcon doesn’t change into the brand new Captain America in any respect. Or perhaps he does, however his remaining costume is rather less… further. With simply 5 episodes left to go, it received’t be lengthy earlier than we discover out.
Extra fascinating, maybe, is the suggestion that on the finish of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Bucky Barnes will nonetheless be the “Winter Soldier.” In the event you contemplate the truth that this title originates from his time as a killing machine utilized by Hydra, that’s really form of unhappy.
If Bucky turns into the “White Wolf” or another new title, it can signify that he’s lastly put a really darkish chapter of his life behind him. Hopefully, the Winter Soldier will nonetheless handle to make amends and transfer on by the tip of the present, however maybe Marvel is saving that for Season 2.
