The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is currently slated to be the first of the Disney+ shows.

It will focus on Sam Wilson (Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) following the events of Avengers: Endgame, which saw both characters return from the dead and lose their best friend Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) after he decided to return to the 1940s.

Sam and Bucky are far from friends when The Falcon  and the Winter Soldier begins, but they’ll have to work together when old threats like Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl) resurface. Plus, Sam will find his claim to the role of Captain America threatened by the U.S. government and their proposed replacement John Walker (Wyatt Russell).
