One of the many resounding questions after the era-ending Avengers: Endgame was: Who would become the next Captain America? Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) had hung up the mantle and passed on the iconic shield to Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), his friend and ally whose rise from Air Force PTSD counselor to a full-fledged member of Avengers was something to behold.
But many fans wondered why Steve didn’t pass on the mantle to his longtime friend Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), whose kidnapping and brainwashing by HYDRA formed a major part of Steve’s arc in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As we get closer to the debut of Disney+’s Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which shows how Sam and Bucky struggle with Captain America’s legacy, Stan explains why Bucky’s arc doesn’t allow for him to become the next Captain America.

Where You Can Stream It: Disney+
The Pitch: The grand finale of the the first decade-plus of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the highest grossing film of all time probably doesn’t need an introduction. Well, except to say that it deserves all the hype and somehow manages to be a terrific movie on top of being the ultimate crossover event, delivering payoff after payoff while juggling a dozen different tones and dozens of major characters.
Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: A few weeks ago, a clip from Avengers: Endgame with the audio of an opening night audience went viral. It was a reminder of why the theatrical experience is still so effective and a callback to the times when we could actually leave the house and experience culture together. It was also a reminder that Endgame pretty much just rocks and earned that reaction because it’s a damn good time at the movies. But if you revisit the grand finale of the first decade of the MCU at home, it plays differently. Especially in the time of quarantine.
