Marvel Studios has had successful entertainment with both Vandavision and The Falcon and Winter Soldier. Both critics and audiences have given their thumbs up. Like the MCU films, both shows inspired countless Fars theories and discussions on online forums and social media.
A few days after its finale, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier released the second episode of the documentary Marvel Studios: Assembled. As the first episode went behind the scenes of Vandavision, the second episode happened to The Falcon and Winter Soldier.
Produced and directed by Kari Skolgand, the show featured Sam Wilson or Falcone (Anthony Mackie), a former parskeeper and current superhero who assisted the US Army in its mission as it dealt with Captain America’s legacy as Vibranium Shield. .
He later teamed up with Bucky Barnes or Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stein), as he faced the anarchist group Flag-Smashers and the new government hired Captain America (Wyatt Russell).
The episode runs for about an hour, and sheds light on how elaborate action sequences, special effects and visual effects were performed for the show. Marvel mandated that its TV shows should not feel like a TV show, in the sense that they should have a cinematic feel and scale.
And in that aspect, like many others, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier was a resounding victory. The episode also goes behind the show’s theme. This explains how it was a line from Avengers: Endgame that served as the backbone of Sam’s arc in the series as he struggles to come to terms with what it means to be a black Captain America. Should a black person wear the emblem of the stars and stripes of a country that does not represent him?
Additionally, we are also shown to be the comic-book inspiration behind the story.
This episode includes interviews with McKee, Stan, Russell, Daniel Bruhl, Spellman, Skolland, Producers, and more.
Overall, The Making of the Falcon and The Winter Soldier is such a complex production that came to life. The Marvel Studios montage, The Making of the Falcon and The Winter Soldier is streaming at Disney + Hotstar Premium.
