The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Art: Sam Wilson Is Captain America

To say that Marvel Studios and Disney+'s Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan-starring The Falcon and the Winter Soldier left a lot of interesting questions that could easily be addressed with a second season ("Captain America and the White Wolf" anyone?) would be a serious understatement. Did Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Valentina Allegra de Fontaine signal some "Dark Avengers Days" ahead for Wyatt Russell's John Walker aka USAgent? Will Emily VanCamp's Sharon Carter be the kind of big bad "Power Broker" to make life Hell for Sam and Bucky- or is there a larger, more "secret" plan in play? Oh, and what's the deal with the MCU's "Hannibal Lecter," Zemo (Daniel Bruhl)? But one question that was definitely answered was the one viewers were hoping for all along- Sam Wilson is Captain America, as you're about to see in his official key art poster.

Now here's a look back at the official trailer for the Disney+ and Marvel Studios series, with The Falcon and The Winter Soldier currently available on the streaming service:

Marvel Studios' "The Falcon and The Winter Soldier" stars Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson aka The Falcon, and Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier. The pair, who came together in the final moments of 'Avengers: Endgame,' team up on a global adventure that tests their abilities—and their patience. Directed by Kari Skogland with Malcolm Spellman serving as head writer, the six-episode series stars Daniel Brühl as Baron Zemo, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, and Wyatt Russell as John Walker.
