1. Action-packed scenes


If there’s one thing that’s guaranteed with a Marvel property, it’s bursts of pure undiluted action. TFATWS has the same brand of action as was present in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” My personal favourite is John Walker being handed his butt by the Dora Milaje, with Ayo leading the Wakandan King’s personal guard. I mean they tossed him around like a hockey puck! Sam kicking butt as the Falcon is also really fun to watch.

2. Real-life parallels


The Falcon and The Winter Soldier introduces the first unofficial black captain through Isaiah Bradley. Bradley is a character who took a prototype version of the serum before Steve Rogers, along with several other black men. All except Bradley died. When he went and rescued his compatriots from a POW camp in enemy territory, he was thrown in prison for insubordination. While in prison, the government ran tests on why he survived the serum while others didn’t.
