Right after WandaVision comes to an end, Disney+ and Marvel are going to bring us the Falcon & Winter Soldier series. It will be a 6-hour long cinematic event released as a six-episode show. Even though Steve Rogers chose Sam Wilson as his successor for the shield, we’re going to see a new Captain America. Wyatt Russell is playing US Agent in the series, and the government will choose him as the new face of America. Here’s our first official look at his Captain America suit:

Sam Wilson won’t be Captain America right from the beginning of the series as the US government won’t accept a former criminal to be the face of America. He followed Steve Rogers between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. He was a criminal of the Sokovia Accords. So, he will really have to earn his Captain America title through this series. But we know that Wilson will definitely be Captain America by the end of Season 1. This confirmation comes through a merchandise leak, which has revealed the new suit of Sam Wilson as Captain America. Take a look:

Now if Wilson is supposed to get a new moniker, then shouldn’t Bucky be treated in the same way? After all, the series is based on both Sam and Bucky. And “The Winter Soldier” is a title that represents the criminal days of Bucky under Hydra. So, he should probably get a new name as well. And we believe that his new title moving forward will be none other than “the White Wolf.” It was introduced in Black Panther, and T’Challa even referred to Bucky as the White Wolf in Avengers: Infinity War. Last year, Sebastian Stan posted an Instagram story that teased the fact that he’d be called the White Wolf in the future. So, it would be safe to assume that this title would stick. Furthermore, it would be amazing if Bucky would get a Wakandan suit that represents his White Wolf persona.
If Sam and Bucky go through these aforementioned title changes, then the next season of their series might have a title change. It could be called Captain America and the White Wolf. Let’s wait and see how things turn out with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Its first episode arrives on March 19. It stars Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson / Falcon, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes / The Winter Soldier, Daniel Brühl as Baron Helmut Zemo, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, and Wyatt Russell as John Walker / US Agent.
