So yeah, loads of motion, loads of banter, stress to spare, and many others. But there’s a mysterious waterfront metropolis within the trailer, as nicely, and it appears to match earlier stories that the fictional location of Madripoor would function closely in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
What is Madripoor?
Marvel’s Madripoor is an island nation/metropolis in Southeast Asia, one identified for having a little bit of a roughhousing, semi-lawless nature. It’s an ideal place for heroes who function on the “international intrigue” finish of the MCU spectrum to get into some bother and have some clandestine meet-ups (and public brawls) with new characters.
But right here’s the factor: whereas loads of Marvel heroes have discovered bother in Madripoor by means of the years (together with each the Clint Barton and Kate Bishop variations of Hawkeye, so don’t be stunned if we return right here throughout their sequence), it was initially created for and is most related to mutants and the X-Men. So whereas there’s nonetheless no agency plans for the way Charles Xavier’s favourite group of kid troopers would possibly play into the MCU, there are many indications that we’ll see components of their world begin to seem right here.
Will The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Introduce Wolverine to the MCU?
And amongst these mutants, or arguably anybody within the Marvel Universe, no person loves Madripoor greater than Wolverine. Logan has spent dozens of adventures kicking round Madripoor, usually in his poorly-disguised alter ego of “Patch” (the place…he wears an eyepatch as a disguise). Logan even co-owns a bar there, often known as The Princess Bar. Set images from earlier within the present’s manufacturing revealed quite a lot of identified Marvel areas that are sufficient to verify this as Madripoor (notably the Brass Monkey and a spot probably doubling as a safehouse for wayward SHIELD or SWORD brokers, however no signal of The Princess…but).
There’s no mutant extra suited to the type of worldwide intrigue that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is outwardly enjoying in direction of than Wolverine. Plus, somebody with adamantium claws is simply begging for a dust-up with whoever occurs to be carrying the vibranium protect at that second. Considering how cameo-crazy Disney+ appears to be with these exhibits, may we get one of many greatest characters in Marvel historical past launched (or re-introduced) on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier?
