A final trailer has been released for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier ahead of its release, and it teases plenty of high stakes and action on the horizon.
Streamed through the official Marvel Entertainment YouTube account on Mar. 15, the trailer offers a brief overview of some of the upcoming series’ key plot points. These include The Falcon working to come into his role as the inheritor of Captain America’s legacy, his evolving dynamic with The Winter Soldier and a new threat that has emerged for them to face.
Things kick off with scenes of The Falcon training with Captain America’s shield. Though he can handle it masterfully, the symbolic weight behind it has him struggling to fully embrace his new role as its wielder.
The Winter Soldier responds with an acknowledgement that it represents many things to people, though whether he means to say this as encouragement or a sign that he’s a rival for wielding it is unknown.
The trailer then moves onto scenes of a new group of villains wreaking havoc around the world. They all wear masks and boast exceptional physical abilities, but otherwise appear somewhat ordinary in appearance.
All the same, they are able to cause enough chaos to warrant The Falcon and the Winter Soldier working together to try and put a stop to their plans. Scenes of the two heroes fighting with the villains, dashing through cities and otherwise being heroic then follow in spades.
It’s a solid final glimpse at the series before it begins airing on Mar. 19, and fans of the MCU will want to view it for themselves down below.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is the latest television offering tied to the MCU. It also marks the second series to be aired on Disney +, with the first being the generally well received WandaVision.
Both are intended to serve as key portions of the upcoming phases of the MCU’s canon, with WandaVision in particular setting up several key events or potential plot points in Phase 4.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is slated to begin streaming on Disney + on Mar. 19. For more on the series, check out our list of five things we hope the series explores.
