Although the COVID-19 pandemic threw a Hulk-sized wrench into the finely laid plans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 4, it seems as though the multi-billion dollar franchise is looking to get things back on track in 2021. During Disney's 2020 Investor Day, the House of Mouse made sure to inform its fans that the MCU wasn't going anywhere, announcing a slew of future movies and Disney+ series that will be produced over the next few years.
Helmut Zemo is leading the Thunderbolts
Of Marvel's super-groups, the huge names like the Fantastic Four, Avengers, and X-Men get the greater part of the acknowledgment. In any case, maybe the funnies aggregate's most fascinating crew is one a great many people have presumably never known about: the Thunderbolts. To place it in layman's terms, the Thunderbolts are basically a gathering of trouble makers (or in any event, not in every case heroes) who meet up to accomplish something great (or at any rate, something not unreasonably terrible). Since its creation in 1997, the group's list has seen plenty of legends, screw-ups, and straight-up supervillains go back and forth, yet one thing stays as before: it's consistently a great perused.
One well-known fan hypothesis is that the MCU is planting seeds of a future Thunderbolts group up, and, if that is the situation, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is really the ideal hopping off point because of one of the show's characters specifically: Daniel Brühl's Helmut Zemo. In the funnies, Zemo is really the one answerable for framing the Thunderbolts. Obviously his group of "legends" was really the contemptible Masters of Evil in camouflage, yet no one realized that. The purple-concealed pioneer expected to fool the world into accepting his group was acceptable, which is, unexpectedly, what the group, in the long run, wound up being. Maybe in TFATWS, Zemo, who was most recently seen detained by the CIA in Civil War, is liberated by General Thaddeus Ross and entrusted with driving his own administration supported group of supes, some of which may as of now exist in the MCU.
Sharon Carter makes good on her British heritage
The last time fans saw Emily VanCamp's SHIELD specialist turned-CIA usable Sharon Carter was in 2016's Captain America: Civil War. From that point forward, the gifted Revenge star has been perceptibly MIA in the MCU, inciting fans to ponder whatever happened to Steve Rogers' will-they-or-will, not they kissing accomplice. In a meeting with Entertainment Weekly in 2019, VanCamp facilitated fans' interests, affirming that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will surely clarify what Carter has been up to since assisting Team With covering in Civil War. "We're clearly going to discover where Sharon's been this time since she's been on the run."
The new Black Widow
Recall when Black Widow should be the following part in the MCU? Before the pandemic hit, fans couldn't hold back to consider Scarlett To be the last ride as Natasha Romanoff, just as perceive how newcomers David Harbour, Rachel Weisz, and Florence Pugh would find a way into the Marvel universe on the loose. Even though fans are still too eager to see the film when it ultimately hits theaters, the Phase 4 record has since been reshuffled, and now both WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will debut first.
This new delivery plan is especially intriguing when you consider the way that, similar to the case with most MCU films, the effect of Black Widow might actually play into what occurs in TFATWS. Perhaps the most well-known thought is that Pugh's Russian super-spy, Yelena Belova, will take over for Romanoff in Phase 4 and the past. Since Thunderbolt Ross is affirmed to assume a part in Black Widow, fans are speculating that Belova will really be working for Ross going ahead, maybe even as an individual from the Thunderbolts. Should Pugh show up in TFATWS, it will doubtlessly be as the MCU's new Black Widow, albeit the truth will surface eventually who's the side she battles for.
Bucky and Sharon sitting in a tree
To the extent fan forecasts go, this one is generally very much grounded. With Steve now good and gone, it tends to be accepted that everybody from Bucky's past is currently gone. He's a man out of time and he's in isolation. Sharon could address a piece of his set of experiences, given her association with both Steve and Peggy Carter, and albeit the pair have shared practically no screen time now, that could change in TFATWS.
Some fans hate this idea, arguing that Sharon is a boss character in the funnies, and having her onscreen partner restricted to a simple love interest would be a disgrace. This is likewise a long way from the first occasion when that Bucky's affection life has been examined by fans, and a strong segment of individuals actually accept that he's entirely having him date Sharon would apparently douse that proposition, however, the truth will surface eventually which bearing Marvel is taking the Winter Soldier.
