‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ Is the Proof That the ‘Captain America’ Movies Are the Best

I’ve seen the first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier four times now and each viewing has been so rewarding. The tone, the directing, the cinematography, everything about this show so far has got me buzzing.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier were characters that I always loved and wanted to know more about but we weren’t afforded that chance of exploration for these characters because Captain America was the star.

Captain America always had the best trilogy in the MCU with stories that both impacted the MCU in powerful ways while also delivering us some of the greatest moments in the franchise. These films also gave us Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes, two characters who are Steve Rogers’ best friends and so, so very fascinating.

Now The Falcon and the Winter Soldier seems to be using the same template as Captain America: The Winter Soldier and already it’s better than most MCU installments. And we’re only one episode in!

Not only are we getting Sam and Bucky’s stories expanded upon, but we’re also getting Sharon Carter and Zemo, two returning characters from the Captain America trilogy who should get some much needed upgrades in story development this time around.

This story is undoubtedly going to be revolve around the primary villains of this show, the Flag Smashers, for a while but what is this story leading to? I’m not going to delve into any outlandish theories like I did with WandaVision but I am expecting a surprise here and there through the series because all Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Civil War were filled with plenty of plot-twisting moments.

So yeah, even though Doctor Strange is my favorite MCU hero, Captain America has definitely got the best story and it looks like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is continuing that legacy.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.

White Vision Needs to be Friend Zoned in His Upcoming Role in the MCU

WandaVision is over but it left some nuggets, like all MCU installments, along the way. One of the biggest teases for the future of the MCU was the return of Vision via White Vision in the finale. We saw him get his memories back and then he flew away to who knows where.

In the final post-credits scene we see Wanda somewhere by a beautiful lake drinking tea and enjoying life but she is alone. White Vision is nowhere to be seen and the scene itself didn’t set up any highly-anticipated reunion between her and this new version of Vision. So…what’s going to happen next for the two lovebirds? Honestly, I think Wanda’s epic love story with the humanoid synthezoid ended with the finale of WandaVision and now I believe it will be best if she moves on.

Wanda Maximoff has experienced potentially the most grief out of any character besides Thor thanks to the fact that she lost her parents as a child, her brother during the Sokovian battle, and then her boyfriend over and over again. Does she really want to have to feel that pain again, especially since her story seems to be barreling toward villainy and the eventual destruction of the world? I don’t think so. And honestly, just because White Vision has Vision’s memories doesn’t exactly mean that he’s suddenly deeply in love with Wanda.
