And they reveal some sneak peeks at the forthcoming Marvel Studios original shows coming to Disney+ in the coming years.
Part of the launch day programming for Disney+ includes a 12-minute mini-documentary called Expanding the Universe, which focuses on what Marvel Studios has in the works with shows like Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Hawkeye, WandaVision, and more. In fact, we’ve got Falcon and the Winter Soldier concept art showing off new looks for the characters from the Captain America franchise, as well as a glimpse at the uniform for the new character U.S. Agent.

Jackson as two black businessmen who concoct a plan to subvert the racist system that keeps black families from moving into white neighborhoods.

We haven’t seen him in action in the role yet, but Avengers: Endgame established that Anthony Mackie‘s Sam Wilson/Falcon is the new Captain America. While we may have to wait some time before we see him suit up, we could’ve seen Falcon taking up the shield much sooner. As in, a few days from now when Spider-Man: Far From Home opens.
A new interview reveals there was talk of including the new Captain America in Far From Home, but the idea was ultimately nixed. On top of that, Mackie himself states that long before he became Falcon, he auditioned for a very different Marvel Cinematic Universe role.
