The Falcon and the Winter Soldier creator Malcolm Spellman notes that he is clearly reluctant: “The only line from Sam when Steve asks him the way it feels. ‘Prefer it belongs to another person.’ When he mentioned that, he is clearly in a state of disaster.

You get to see them as individuals. It is humorous as a result of normally in a film discussion board, you solely have two hours to inform the start, center and ending of a narrative. However we have now six episodes to inform the whole scope of the place these characters have been, how they really feel in regards to the world they’re in, and the place they are going as soon as this collection is over.”
At the beginning of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Sam is at his sister’s in Louisiana to assist save the household enterprise. Spellman mentioned: “Sam grew to become a hero due to the place he is from—he noticed that the world was not truthful. He ran off to avoid wasting the world by becoming a member of the army. However he is at all times apprehensive if becoming a member of the army was actually about operating away from issues at dwelling—they appeared so insurmountable, it would be simpler to avoid wasting the world.”
In fact, he additionally has to cope with that factor he was handed: Cap’s protect. “He really believes that there is an argument to be made that crimson, white and blue — stars and stripes — inherently represents oppression,” Spellman mentioned of that internal battle, to which Mackie added: “Sam considers the protect a illustration of the nation that we stay in. There’s a whole lot of trepidation so far as how does a Black man symbolize a rustic that doesn’t symbolize him?”
For Stan, it is about “attempting to embrace his new life,” he mentioned, “however he is fairly misplaced and having an id disaster once more. He is doing his greatest, discovering his personal path after Steve, in spite of everything these occasions. It seems like that is the primary time he is lastly free, so to talk, to take care of himself. But it surely’s not straightforward. How does this character now operate on the earth? What’s his life going again to Brooklyn? How is he assembly individuals? How is he interacting at espresso retailers? Is he courting? Is he fascinated about one other profession? Is he in remedy? There have been all these questions on the place we may take this character. There have been a whole lot of enjoyable and thrilling issues that got here out of that exploration.”
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier co-executive producer Zoie Nagelhout famous that Bucky “is working to unburden himself from the trauma of being the Winter Soldier.

I really feel like that does not go away. It is nonetheless there deep down. He is simply studying cope with it a little bit bit higher.”
Returning alongside Mackie and Stan are Captain America: Civil Battle alums Emily VanCamp as former SHIELD agent Sharon Carter and Daniel Brühl as that movie’s villain Helmut Zemo.
Carter has been on the run ever since she helped the Avengers in Civil Battle and he or she’s develop into considerably jaded, VanCamp mentioned: “Once we discover Sharon, she’s in a fairly darkish place. Once we first see her, there’s a little bit little bit of anger. She’s harder, a little bit uncooked and tough across the edges—a very totally different model of Sharon than what we have seen within the movies. That is actually attention-grabbing to discover.”
“In Civil Battle, I used to be fascinated by the truth that Zemo is a multi-layered villain,” Brühl mentioned of his character. “He isn’t only a sinister unhealthy man. However there was not that a lot time to discover totally different sides of him, so it was nice to be given the chance to revisit this character [on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier].”

“I gravitate in direction of characters who have to make tough selections,” Walker mentioned. “His dichotomies are what attracted me to him, and I have been allowed the leeway to form him a little bit as a result of we have by no means met this character earlier than.”
“We thought Wyatt was an attention-grabbing selection as a result of a whole lot of his work earlier than had him taking part in the slacker with lengthy hair and a beard,” The Falcon and the Winter Soldier government producer Nate Moore added. “However we discovered this distinctive vitality in him that neither Sam Wilson nor Bucky Barnes has, and we felt that was necessary in order that John Walker stood aside from these two characters.”
