The Falcon and the Winter Soldier writer Derek Kolstad commented on how the series will approach the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame.
While Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame concluded with our heroes successfully bringing back everyone who was erased from existence by Thanos and defeating the Mad Titan, the film left audiences with a lot of questions regarding how the world moved forward after an event as monumental “The Blip.” While Spider-Man: Far From Home touched upon the logistics of a world where billions suddenly returned from the dead, much of the topics covered were played for laughs.
However, Derek Kolstad revealed The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will explore how the world was impacted by the events in Avengers: Endgame during a Twitter Q&A session hosted by Discussing Film. In response to a question regarding the tone of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Derek Kolstad said there will be some “resilient” fun to how the series explores the consequences of Avengers: Endgame but that the “darkness” of it will also be examined.
Check out the post below to read Derek Kolstad’s full comment on how The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will explore the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame.
