What happens to the world after a global tragedy, when there is no leadership – or, if you prefer, heroes – to take responsibility for putting things on the right track? In our world, as we can see, it is chaos. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, too, as we can see from this Friday, 19, in Falcão and the Winter Soldier, at Disney +, bringing together the two friends of Captain America who never got along very well.

The six-episode miniseries, which arrives two weeks after the end of WandaVision, a hit for Marvel and Disney +, returns to the universe shortly after the “blip” (or Thanos snapping), which has disappeared with half the population for five years. “If we compare the blip with the covid-19, it is a very familiar world,” actor Sebastian Stan, who plays Bucky Rogers, also known as Winter Soldier, told Estadão. “The overall energy of the world is very similar. There are several things in the series that are very similar to what we saw last year, with people trying to know what it will be like next, without a leadership and without a moral compass.”

The missing ethical north, in this case, is Captain America Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans for eight years. In Avengers: Endgame, Captain America appeared as an old man, saying he went back in time shortly after helping to defeat Thanos and lived his life. He gave his famous shield to his friend Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), also known as Falcon. So, do you mean Sam is now Captain America? It is not that simple. “When he received the shield, Sam already showed some hesitation and fear at the idea of ​​becoming Captain America, because he thinks this is Steve’s title,” said Mackie in an interview with Estadão.
