I published a new one As part of Piece at The dropout last night. With the completion of the first season of The falcon and the winter soldierIt seemed like a good time to take a look back at the show’s first season – and especially how it positions itself in the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is thirteen years old this May. It includes 24 films, a handful of television series, and nearly a dozen separate film franchises. That’s a lot of baggage. Indeed, the MCU appears to have reached a point where the baggage of its earlier installments is in almost as much gravity as the source material itself. The falcon and the winter soldier feels like a prime example of talking to the films in the series with the series Captain America Franchise.
