Rumored: ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ to be Renamed for Season 2. Though The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has been the least secretive when it comes to the content we will get to see in any of the new Marvel series coming to Disney+, it seems the series will see an unexpected split between The Falcon/Sam Wilson and The Winter Soldier/Bucky Barner. That is, according to Marvel scooper Charles Murphy from Murphy’s Law podcast.
“Coming out of season one, [Bucky Barnes and Sam Wilson] are going to have gone through something traumatic and be different,” Murphy explained in a recent podcast. “There was definitely at one point a plan for a second season… If they did have season two, it wouldn’t be called The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Season 2, it would be a thematically related thing with a different name.”
The series already has Marvel fans excited for the premiere with the reappearance of Sharon Carter/Agent 13 (Emily VanCamp) and the evil Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl). We will also be introduced to a new MCU character by the name of U.S. Agent/John Walker (Wyatt Russell).
“It’s going to be so cool and kind of crazy. All I can say is it’s just new and different from what you’ve seen so far,” Stan said of the series during a previous convention appearance. “I mean, it will be totally in line with everything that has happened and what we’ve seen and so on, but these characters are getting such additional mileage in terms of learning about who they are now, what they feel, what they’re thinking, and there’s a lot of action, comedy, you know there’s going to be comedy. I feel like you’re going to be happy. I think you’re going to be very happy. And there’s some crazy stuff, like stuff you don’t see coming from anywhere.”
The mystery revolving around the series is palpable, but to tease a split ending? Wow. Especially after it was announced the series would be filming reshoots after the initial storyline too closely resembled the COVID-19 pandemic. It is also rumored the series, along with WandaVision, will only premiere with the first half of the season in 2020. Likely due to production delays from the pandemic. If the series is picked up for a second season we could also see the creation of two new series following the heroes, or the possibility of one of the characters moving to a different Marvel series on Disney+.
We can’t wait for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier to premiere later this year! Which Marvel series are you the most excited for? How do you think the series will end? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
