We continue “Expanding the Universe” with the first-ever Marvel Studios series on Disney+! The Falcon and the Winter Soldier arrives on the streaming service this fall and it’s going to cover a lot of ground. How will Sam Wilson respond to Steve Rogers passing him the mantle and shield of Captain America? What is life like for Bucky Barnes now that the person who believed in him the most, Steve, is no longer around on a regular basis? We discuss these questions and more before turning our attention toward the return of Zemo and Sharon Carter, plus the MCU debut of John Walker/U.S. Agent!
