After recently watching “Wanda and Vision” produced by Marvel Studios, some may shy away from returning to something familiar as “Falcon and the Cold Soldier”. After all, this is the most typical superhero story, which can fulfill all the conditions and grand occasions you expected, but it really does not exceed this clear outline.
Almost familiar to the point of being cliché, we’ve heard similar stories before, and similar characters as well. Although this affects the overall impact of the first episode of this TV series, you should never stop watching the show because of it, as it is still satisfactorily combined, just as the story of the events that led to this particular Lead for the series. Entertaining.

Like “Wanda and Vision”, “Falcon and the Winter Soldier” followed not long after “Avengers: Endgame”. After offsetting the “finger”, billions of people have been resurrected, but global society is still in a state of fragmentation and decay, especially by heroes who reversed their fortunes struggling to find balance and their goals Has tried its best.
Sam Wilson (Falcon) and Bucky Barnes (The Winter Soldier) appear to be trapped in their own semi-depressive states, but new threats have emerged in distant places. It is a mysterious organization that hopes to restore the world to a “kingdom”. Before a finger “.
However, this organization and the main villain Helmut Zemo did not appear in the first episode, as in this episode we first have to introduce Falcon and Winter Soldier to the audience, and how they will find ways to experience it. “Endgame”, I tried to live a healthier life. A zoom out scene gave us a glimpse of the breathtaking action scene in the rest of the series, with a hawk fluttering in a ravine in search of an enemy helicopter, but other than that , You will see the characters both Steel Stars and disappointed heroes tried to settle down.
There is no doubt that this is a very clever way of building a worldview, but it may also be familiar to some people. Such an opening is like the first half-hour of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”, plus international espionage, and a close performance of the main characters. Of course, it is familiar, but from the point of view of a superhero, it is not just familiar, and can easily be considered an introduction to the type of “shadow mission”.
So, is it familiar? Tick it, yes. But this does not mean that there is any harm, far from it. Both Sebastian Stein and Anthony Mackie delivered impressive and vivid performances here, filling their characters with new looks and ideas that should really be in these MCU series. Other actors performed well here, and almost every scene was carefully arranged, deployed, and executed. It is very professional work, but it is really interesting.
“Wanda and Vision” also tells us that the story of a superhero may be very different from the currently accepted and established formula, so returning to the formula we are now familiar with, it looks a bit backwards. But this does not mean that it has no effect. Although the first episode offers very little substance, who wouldn’t like these addictive super-English albums?
