WinterFalcon Spoiler Thread
Surprised to not see a thread for this on here yet.
I don’t know whether Marvel has the chops to pull it off, but they are setting themselves up for some big time political and social commentary with this show.
Unsurprisingly, I dug the hell out of this first episode, especially that opening action sequence which makes The Falcon more badass than he has ever been in any movie.
The thing I love the most about Marvel fully integrating their television and film properties is that it gives them the opportunity to structure their storytelling the exact same way they do in the comics. Characters get introduced in the main films but don’t really have the room or time to breath? 6-episode miniseries exploring their life away from the Avengers. You want to tell a smaller story that will eventually lead into a much bigger movie? 9-episode miniseries. Someone in a movie escapes justice and goes on the run? Big possibility they could show up in a miniseries.
So much interesting shit always seems to happen off-screen in the MCU, and now they have the opportunity to take the time to tell those stories and I can’t wait to see ALL of them.
