Critics Of "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier - Season 1"
March 26, 2021
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is the Marvel Cinematic Universe at its best with this second episode. Michael Kastelein's script tackles timely issues, while making Wyatt Russell's John Walker a character we can't wait to see more of.
In its second episode, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier unpacks MAGA politics and the refugee crisis, establishing what was teased in episode one - Marvel Studios' second streaming show is just as fascinated with geopolitics as it is with superheroics.
The Marvel series is essentially about Sam [Wilson] figuring out his place and identity - and what it means to be a black Captain America for a country that routinely discriminates against people of his skin colour.
