It was only back in December when Marvel Studios handed us the dossier that included the world’s “first look” into the upcoming Disney+ action/Adventure series “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier”, and if you missed that briefing just click HERE to be up to date on the mission plan. Now, as The Big Game continues we have what is being called the Official Trailer, so let’s take a look. I’ve also included some light premise, the casting and the first promotional poster art for good measure.
The Premise: After being handed the mantle of Captain America at the end of Avengers: Endgame (2019), Sam Wilson teams up with Bucky Barnes in a worldwide adventure that puts their abilities to the test.
Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon
Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier
Daniel Brühl as Baron Helmut Zemo
Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter
Wyatt Russell as John Walker
Georges St-Pierre as Georges Batroc

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Editorial thoughts are forthcoming.
So the Big Game is still on and at the time of this posting the San Francisco 49ers are in the lead. Speaking of in the lead, it would seem that the Disney+ streaming service is also in this position based on their having successfully delivered “The Mandalorian” its time to kick things up a notch. During the footballbreaks we got our first glimpse of the three upcoming Marvel Studios television shows “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier”, “WandaVision” and “Loki”. Take a look. I’ve also included the published premise and casting for these shows.
Well my fellow geeks, we’ve done it and helped this grand news happen. After almost three months in theaters, Marvel Studios film “Avengers: Endgame” has become to Highest Grossing Film of All Time with an achievement of $2.789 billion dollars. It’s topped the long-standing “Avatar” film which has held the title since 2009 and had achieved $2.787 billion dollars during its full theatrical run. Now according to my reading, “Avatar” was in the theaters for a lot longer than “Avengers: Endgame” has been so far so who knows if the film will reach the $3 billion dollar mark when all is said and done. Let’s take a look at the main poster, premise and massive casting once more before continuing.
The reveals from this years Comic Con International: San Diego have been bountiful as you can see by clicking HERE but there was nothing that I was interested more in the revelations and announcements from the Marvel Studios panel at the hallowed “Hall H”. What I’ve done was taken the tweets as they went live on their Official Account and added them here so this post is a bit “live” for the duration. As everything is happening too fast to mull upon the ideas and announcements, I will be adding additional editorial in post. Let’s go and be aware that this postwill feature some spoilers to the outcome of “Avengers: Endgame” since that film came out back in April and if you are someone who’s waited this long it probably doesn’t matter to you anyway.
First of the announcements comes the news about the “Eternals” film with the cast being cited as well. I should stress that I was not watching the Hall H panel as I had hoped to be since I don’t think it was streaming anywhere and was just keeping pace alongside the assorted feeds I was following.

Eternals: In my vast collection of individual comic book issues, I do admit to owning at least a dozen issues that feature “The Eternals”. However, that being said, I was never much the fan of the Kirby creations and wonder how a movie about them can be made to work. Sure, Marvel Studios made “Guardians Of The Galaxy” work out to excellence with a cast of characters that were not the traditional GOTG to many of us so I have some faith. While skeptical, I am willing to let Marvel Studios work their magic.

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier: This is the first series announced the for Disney+ service which I will be subscribing to without hesitation. This one picks up post “Avengers: Endgame” and will likely follow Falcon as Falcon Cap since he has the shield now after the outcome of that last film. I’m very excited about the return of Zemo and knowing that he will be sporting the famous red hood that he is known for in the comics.
