After a much longer wait than was originally planned, Marvel fans are now just a little over a month away from the debut of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. While we know the basics of what will be in store for us in March when we can finally set our eyes upon the second MCU series on Disney+, there's still plenty we don't fully understand about what, exactly, will go down. But, Emily VanCamp, who will reprise her role as Peggy Carter's niece, former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Sharon, can at least confirm that fans will be treated to some "good old-fashioned action" in the new show.
Emily VanCamp's Sharon Carter made her debut in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and returned to help out Team Cap in Civil War, but went unseen in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, with the exception of her picture being shown briefly during that latter film to confirm that she was one of the billions of souls snapped away by Thanos. Sharon was brought back, like everyone else, and will hook up with Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes for at least part of their adventures in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
When asked by E! if the series will have any trippy, WandaVision-esq surprises in store for fans, VanCamp answered:
I think there are elements of that, but I also think that you can kind of count on just good old-fashioned action that people love from those movies. There are multiple levels to Falcon and Winter Soldier that I think people will appreciate.
You know what? When it comes to superhero shenanigans you just can't go wrong with "good old-fashioned action." While viewers had gotten a couple of teases previously for what TFATWS would have in store for us, the first official full trailer broke a big viewing record after debuting during Sunday's Super Bowl. And, it does look like the show will be filled with the type of action and intrigue we saw in films like The Winter Soldier and Civil War, which hopefully means that the series will keep us just as enthralled as those movies.
So far, we do know that Sam and Bucky will be tasked with stopping some (probably) fiendish plot by Baron Zemo, who seems to be working on a way to stop all superheroes from existing. Along the way, the bickering duo will go on an international adventure, running into War Machine, the newly introduced (and possibly antagonistic) John F. Walker, and Sharon Carter along the way. And, if you missed VanCamp's brief turn as Carter in TFATWS trailer, it's for good reason, as it looks like a lot of her screen time will be filled with the previously on the run former agent kicking a lot of villain ass.
Emily VanCamp also noted that there will be "multiple levels" to TFATWS, which sounds great when taken at face value. But, she also confirmed that we'll likely see "elements" of the wackiness from WandaVision. I don't know about you, but I think this might mean that Phase 4 of the MCU, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier included, is about to be threaded through with a fair bit of multiverse madness.
We can see how it all turns out, and how being snapped away and on the run impacted Emily VanCamp's Sharon Carter, when The Falcon and the Winter Solider hits Disney+ on March 19. For more on what to watch until then, check out our guide to early 2021 TV!
