Marvel's the Falcon and the Winter Soldier Will Revolve around the government not wanting Sam to be Cap
In the latest Fatman Beyond episode, hosts Kevin Smith and Marc Bernadin discuss MCU's Phase 4 slate as announced at Comic-Con, including The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Smith asked about whether or not Sam will eventually assume the Captain America title, to which Bernadin replies: "That, I think, is the crux of what that show's going to be. The government doesn't want Sam Wilson to be Captain America."
In a recent interview, Mackie explains the logic behind the title of the show considering that technically, he's already supposed to be the Sentinel of Liberty. The actor revealed that he's still Falcon, meaning that chances are that they show the process of him becoming Captain America. While he deals with the threat of Zemo haunting him and Bucky (Sebastian Stan). Plus hate from the government, and undoubtedly many of America's "citizens". It should be interesting to see how the rest of the United States rebuilds itself after the aftermath of the "Blip."
A storyline based on comic books by Nick Spencer, "Take back the Shield" dealt with a racist America outraged with Black American as their symbol. Mirroring our own world, and the current state of America. The MCU, Disney version of the world, probably won't deal with this. Unless Disney is even braver still, the hate of Sam with the Shield, will almost assuredly be due to the machinations of Zemo. We'll see Sam wield the shield with support from Bucky sometime in 2020.
