We’re just over a week out from the premiere of Marvel’s The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and excitement continues to build for what’s promising to be an action-packed series with a hilarious team up. Ahead of the show’s release, stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan sat down for a behind-the-scenes discussion about the relationship between their characters.
This six-episode miniseries takes place in the wake of Avengers: Endgame, in which Steve Rogers passed on his vibranium shield to Mackie’s Sam Wilson. Now, Sam will have to team up with Stan’s Bucky Barnes to embark on a global adventure that will test their skills … and their patience. As seen in many of the trailers and teasers thus far for the series, Sam and Bucky’s snarky dynamic will set the stage for the “buddy comedy action movie” feel of the show.

In addition to Mackie and Stan, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will see the return of Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, Daniel Brühl as Baron Zemo, Don Cheadle as James Rhodes, and Georges St-Pierre as Batroc the Leaper. Some new additions will include Wyatt Russell as John Walker/U.S. Agent and Adepero Oduye as Sam’s sister Sarah.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will land exclusively on Disney+ next Friday, March 19.
