DISNEY+ – The Falcon & Winter Soldier is telling a more traditional story than WandaVision. But it’s got the Marvel goods, and it’s easier to follow.
In episode one, we’re introduced to The Falcon, who just returned to reality after the whole 5-year snap thang. And he’s dealing with family drama, and Captan America’s legacy; will he or won’t he become the next Captan America. And Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier, is struggling to deal with, and make amends for, the awful things he did under Hydra‘s control.
In this 1st episode, The Falcon & Winter Soldier story-lines have not intersected yet, so the characters don’t interact. But the way things are falling into place, it’s apparent that they will soon, with an interesting new villainous organization to deal with.
Overall, it’s a good 1st episode. And it starts us off on an interesting, and action-packed, journey. Who will be the next Captain America? Only time will tell.
