“I Had A Little Calm In Wakanda, And Other Than That I’ve Gone From One Fight To Another For 90 Years.”- Bucky Barnes
As we all know that Anthony Mackie is playing Sam Wilson, and Sebastian Stan is playing Bucky Barnes. They are proficient associates, yet not really a team, in the most recent in a series of banners inspired by The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The penultimate episode of the Marvel Studios, original series, “Truth,” sees the previous “partners” of the retired Steve Rogers played by Chris Evans collaborate to take on maverick Super Soldier John Walker played by actor Wyatt Russell, the new Captain America after he utilizes Steve’s star-radiant shield to openly execute an individual from a member of the fugitive Karli Morgenthau’s played by Erin Kellyman super- powerful Flag Smashers. In the series finale, where the Falcon gets ready and takes off into it as an all-new Captain America, things reach a critical stage when Sam and Bucky go head to head with hired fighter Batroc played by Georges St-Pierre and the Flag Smashers, who was most recently seen starting an assault on the GRC headquarters in New York City. Somewhere else, the ex-Cap John Walker manufactures another shield he’ll use, thus becoming the U.S. Agent.
“We needed Sam to take part in both a public and private discussion of how it affects a Black man to get a particularly famous truly white symbol,” series director Kari Skogland revealed to Entertainment Weekly about Sam’s choice to reclaim Captain America’s shield in episode 5. “By starting off with his affirmation of how significant it is as a symbol, and that it is associated with a bygone era, Sam makes way for the possibility that what characterizes a hero today isn’t a similar ideal as it was when Steve initially got the Sheild.” Skogland proceeded: “It is significant that we investigate all sides to its future as a symbol, given it represents the American flag and the profound history that accompanies something that addresses balance and opportunity,” the director proceeded. “It should be a continuous conversation because those exceptionally pined for thoughts that are the center to the Pursuit of happiness are really delicate and should be shielded from those that go down a dangerous slant, regardless of how good-natured, that really places opportunity and fairness in focus.” The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will debut its 6th and last episode this coming Friday, dated 23 April, on Disney+.
