After enduring the longest period without a Marvel Cinematic Universe project since the nearly-two-year wait between The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man 2, the MCU is coming out of the gates in 2021, following up the massive success of WandaVision with the release of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier just two weeks later.

With The Falcon and the Winter Soldier set to premiere a week from today, the first reactions to the pilot episode have begun to hit the internet, and it looks as though Marvel *shockingly* has another hit on their hands.

Prior to the events of last year, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was originally going to be the first Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney+, as it was set to premiere in August 2020 with WandaVision to follow. When you take that into consideration, you realize Disney and Marvel Studios must’ve wanted to lead with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier for a reason, whether that be because it’s quality, how its plot affects the greater MCU, or both.

In addition to Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier also stars Daniel Bruhl as Helmut Zemo, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, and Wyatt Russell as John F. Walke, a.k.a U.S. Agent. Also set to appear in the series is Don Cheadle’s War Machine, which we exclusively reported on back in February.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will premiere on Disney+ on Friday, March 19. We’ll be covering the premiere episode and the entire first season over on the Post-Credit Podcast, so make sure to subscribe and check that out!
