We’re officially eight days out from the first episode of the next Marvel Disney+ series, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. In this article I will dive into a few of my theories for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier series.

The introduction of Patriot

A theory I have had for some time is that the current phase of Marvel content will introduce the Young Avengers. Kate Bishop (Hawkeye) and Cassie Lang (Ant-Man’s daughter) who in the comics are apart of the Young Avengers are already confirmed to be appearing in future MCU series/films. I believe that this series will introduce Elijah Bradley (Patriot). In the comics, Patriot is one of the founding members of the Young Avengers and plays a similar role to Captain America. It has even been rumored that Elijah Richardson will be playing Bradley in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Having Bradley (Patriot) be the first official Young Avenger introduced in live-action would be a smart move by Marvel.

Sam (Falcon) will become Captain America

In one of the final scenes of Avengers : Endgame, we see an old Steve Rogers give Falcon the Captain America shield. This leads me to believe this series will show Falcon taking the steps to become the new Captain America. In a 2014 comic, Sam Wilson (Falcon) became the new Cap. With Marvel really trying to diversify it’s biggest heroes, I think having Falcon take over as Cap would be great.

Captain America’s funeral

In the scene I previously talked about with an old Captain America, yes we see him as an old man but we do not know what his fate is after this scene in Endgame. I believe that The Falcon and The Winter Solider series will show Sam and Bucky dealing with Steve Rogers passing away. In a recent trailer Sam is in what definitely looks to be a funeral type suit as he is looking down on Cap’s shield. I think we’ll definitely be seeing the funeral of Captain America in this series.
