“The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” footage during the Super Bowl, and fans saw Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan briefly reprising their titular roles. As Cap’s best friends, they both have some things in common, but expect them to have a few differences too. Here's everything we know about the Disney+ series so far, including the latest release date info, synopsis and casting updates. 

Falcon Might Not Be Cap: Though Mackie’s Sam Wilson was given Captain America’s shield in “Avengers: Endgame,” he might not be the next Captain America—at least in the government’s eyes. They’ll hire John Walker (Wyatt Russell) to be their next patriotic mascot. That’s who fans see in the trailer walking onto a football field. He’ll soon be known as U.S. Agent, a famous character from the Captain America comics.

Zemo Is Back: The Disney+ trailer also makes it clear that Baron Zemo (Daniel Bruhl) is back. It looks like Stan’s Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier will confront the “Captain America: Civil War” villain, holding a gun to his head. It’s safe to say Bucky still has a darker side than Cap ever did.

Bucky’s New Look: Since becoming the Winter Soldier, Bucky has had long hair. However, the Super Bowl trailer confirmed that he’ll chop off his luscious locks for the series.

Cast: Also returning is Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter/Agent 13. New actors include Noah Mills, Desmond Chiam and Miki Ishikawa, according to Deadline, but their characters haven’t been revealed yet.

Synopsis: Marvel's official logline isn’t very descriptive. “Following the events of 'Avengers: Endgame,' Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) team up in a global adventure that tests their abilities — and their patience — in Marvel Studios’ 'The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.'”

Creative Team: It’ll be the first series produced by Marvel Studios, so that means Marvel mastermind Kevin Feige is signing off on everything. Meanwhile, Malcolm Spellman is executive producing while Kari Skogland directs.

Release Date: The limited series will release in August 2020, according to Deadline, but the Disney+ page still says fall 2020. 

Rumors/Theories: Some believe that those skydivers in the Super Bowl trailer are actually Hydra agents since the stripes on their costumes are similar to those of comic book Hydra agents. Others have suggested that Zemo’s appearance hints that the Thunderbolts are being introduced. One rumor suspects that "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" will connect to November's "The Eternals." Then, of course, there are theories that Chris Evans will appear as Captain America, but none of these are confirmed.
