Head Writer Malcolm Spellman talks to IGN about how the legacy of Captain America looms over Marvel's The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and how and why Sam Wilson wrestles with that. Spellman also addresses how the Disney Plus series explores Bucky Barnes' guilt over his bloody past as the Winter Soldier. In Marvel Studios' The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Sam Wilson/Falcon and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, who came together in the final moments of Avengers: Endgame, team up on a global adventure that tests their abilities-and their patience. The series is directed by Kari Skogland; Malcolm Spellman is head writer. The cast features Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson aka The Falcon, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier, Daniel Brühl as Zemo, and Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter. The six-episode series streams exclusively on Disney+ beginning March 19, 2021.
