Move aside, Captain America. If you’re a Marvel fan, you may want to know how to watch The Falcon and The Winter Soldier online for free to not miss Disney+’s latest MCU show.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, which is Disney+’s second Marvel Cinematic Universe show after WandaVision, stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan as Sam Wilson (a.k.a. Falcon) and Bucky Barnes (a.k.a. Winter Soldier) respectively. The show is set six months after the events of Avengers: Endgame, which saw Steve Rogers (a.k.a. Captain America) pass his shield to Sam and name him the new captain after he traveled back in time to return the Soul Stones to their proper timelines.
When Steve, who stayed in the past and grew old, reunited with Sam in the present, he gave him Captain America’s near-indestructible vibranium shield and passed him the mantle. The Falcon and The Winter Soldier sees Sam team up with Bucky, a former rival of Captain America’s, for a worldwide mission.
“The show is very honest and forthright and very unapologetic about dealing with the truth of what it means to be American, Captain America, Black Captain America—and if that’s even a thing,” Mackie told Entertainment Weekly in March 2021 “I think picking up from where we left off at the end of Endgame, the show progresses extremely well by asking those questions and really explaining why Sam said the shield feels like it belongs to someone else.”
