The new TV spot for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier shows John Walker’s next villainous twist as he holds up a bloody shield from Captain America.
The new The Falcon and the Winter Soldier warns of John Walker’s evil twist. The current MCU Captain America may have the support of the government and the general public in the franchise, but like Sam and Bucky, viewers aren’t on board with him wielding the iconic shield. While he hasn’t done anything wrong with the show, it looks like that will change in the next episode.
Unlike WandaVision that had nine episodes, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier It only has six, but with longer exits. With three episodes already released, the show is slowly approaching the end of the season, with more information about its narrative revealed each week. Episode 3 titled “Power Broker” may have kept Walker, Sam, and Bucky apart after their last intense encounter, but it’s only a matter of time before their paths cross again as they both attempt to track down Karli Morgenthau and her terrorist organization. known as the Flag Destroyers.
Before The Falcon and the Winter Soldier premiere of episode 4, Marvel Entertainment released a new ad titled “Best” to pique people’s interest in the episode. The clip is a mix of old and new footage, but arguably the most interesting shot in the trailer is Walker on his knees holding a bloodied Captain America shield. Look the following video:
Walker has been a decent character so far in The Falcon and the Winter SoldierIn fact, the show even tried to humanize him by highlighting his origins. But, there is always something strangely wrong with him being the Avenger of the spangles of the stars. Aside from not being Steve’s chosen successor, Walker doesn’t understand what it means to be Captain America. In episode 3, he was very frustrated that he did not command the respect he thinks he deserves simply by wielding the shield. It may just be due to immense pressure to perform well, but this could also be an indication that you are willing to do more dire things in the future to get what you want. That could explain the blood on Captain America’s shield, which is disgusting to see.
Aside from this bloody Captain America shield, the venue also hints that the show will revert to its main narrative. With so many moving parts, more complicated by the involvement of Zemo and Wakandans, a lot is happening in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. But, his main narrative will always address the legacy of Captain America’s mantle, as he ties in with Sam as Steve Rogers’ chosen successor. At this point in the story, Sam still seems hesitant to take his rightful place as the MCU’s new Star-Spangled Avenger, but perhaps Walker’s evil twist could push him in the right direction. Seeing how the government failed in his election and watching him corrupt Steve’s legacy could give Sam the courage to finally embrace his new superhero persona.
