Time to put on your foil hats and squint because we have some serious speculations along the way. Marvel recently released a new full-length trailer for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier during the Super Bowl. The video was shared by many of the social media accounts controlled by Marvel Studios. One, in particular, is worth raising an eyebrow. Namely, the latent Inhumans Twitter account.
Marvel Inhumans He had a short and brutal life on ABC. The show ran for just one season and aired in 2017, after failing critically. The fan base did little to accept it. The Twitter account hasn’t shared anything since December 2019, and everything it has shared has been related to the show in some way. But, for its first tweet in over a year, the account shared the new trailer with the following message.
“Are you ready? Check out the new trailer for Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and begin streaming the original series on March 19 on Disney +. #FalconAndWinterSoldier”
Yes, it is common for studios to share new promotional materials on all available social networks. So it’s pretty easy to dismiss this as commonplace. Or is that it? Marvel Studios has had much promote during the last year. Various trailers for Black Widow. WandaVision. Everything from the big Disney Investor Day presentation. The account’s 80,000 followers, though not a large number compared to other Marvel-controlled accounts, could have been used many times in the past. Why did Marvel decide that now was the right time to dust off the Inhumans account? It will be The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Will you connect with these characters in any way?
It is true that this is a bit of an exaggeration. But let’s never forget that, at one point, Marvel Studios was planning to turn The Inhumans into a great movie franchise as part of Phase 3 of the MCU. Those plans were scrapped in favor of the ill-advised television show. Be that as it may, it seems hard to imagine that characters like Black Bolt will be on the sidelines forever. Of course, it is impossible to imagine that versions of these characters from the ABC series will be brought to the MCU. Who knows? Perhaps a surprise stunt casting awaits us. WandaVision has been full of surprises so far. Why not this show too?
What we know for sure is that Anthony Mackie will return as Sam Wilson / Falcon alongside Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier. They will once again face Zemo, whom we last saw in Captain America: Civil War. At the center of the show will be a fight to determine who will take up the mantle of Captain America in the absence of Steve Rogers. Maybe, just maybe, the Inhumans will take all of this into account. But probably not. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier debuts on Disney + on March 19. You can see the post for yourself from the Inhumans Twitter account.
