If you were ever wondering how to categorize the universe’s biggest threats, then look no further than Sam Wilson for guidance. Marvel released a new clip for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and it looks like our titular characters will be attending “supernatural threat school.”
Now, said clip opens with a voiceover from Sam (Anthony Mackie). He delves into their latest opponent. We see Erin Kellyman lead the charge regarding our heroes’ archenemies. “These guys use brute force. They’re strong. Too strong. They might be a part of the ‘Big Three,'” he reveals. What exactly constitutes the Big Three? “Androids, aliens and wizards.” Bucky (Sebastian Stan) retorts that “That’s not a thing.” The pair proceed to bicker over whether the Big Three truly exists.
Bucky is adamant that wizards aren’t real. “Doctor Strange?” Sam counters. “Is a sorcerer,” Bucky replies. “A sorcerer is a wizard without a hat,” Sam says. Checkmate! Slam dunk! If Sam had a mic at that moment, he would drop it like it’s hot. That may be one of my favorite lines ever uttered in the MCU thus far. I’d have to agree with Sam here. Sorcerers just seem to be wizards who choose not to don headgear. That’s the one factor that separates them. Counterpoint: Sorcerer Mickey wore a hat.
Amid the incessant back-and-forth, we see shots of our duo kicking ass and taking names. “Never stop fighting,” is The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s mantra for this particular teaser. Never stop fighting in more ways than one. I sincerely hope this aspect contributes to the overall tone of the show. I want Sam and Bucky to be a contemporary Marvel version of The Odd Couple.
