    I don't think it's supposed to look great.
    he's the shitty version of Captain America
    Craptain America

    He may not appear again after this show. Last thing they want to do is waste a good costume on him. Gotta save the good look for Sam.

    So I wonder if they do bring them in if they'll introduce members from the comics as new characters, or bring back baddies from the previous movies to have familiar members like in the comics?
    Do we have enough surviving bad guys to make up a team?

    I like it. It's pretty faithful to the comic book look, while still being Captain America-y enough to make it feel weird that it isn't Chris Evans in the suit. Which is almost certainly the point. I still wonder if Walker will be played as a hero or a villain for this.

    And I absolutely cannot wait to see the MCU version of Sam's Cap suit. One of my favorite designs from the comics. Don't let me down Disney!

    Zemo, Ghost, Abomination. Vulture if you can get Keaton back. Could always bring back Batroc from Winter Soldier. That's all I can think of off the top of my head. Taskmaster, perhaps, depending on how Black Widow goes.

    Figure get one or two familiar faces plus Zemo, and maybe a new member or two and you've got a solid roster to play with.

    Previous Thunderbolts rumors said the team would be Zemo, Thunderbolt Ross, Ghost, Abomination and Justin Hammer.

    That could certainly work - though I wonder what that team would really have to do in this show. Falcon and Bucky certainly can't take down Abomination, unless the show gives them a convenient technological off-button like the Suicide Squad kill switches. Or the Thunderbolts could 'debut' in the show as the post-credits scene of where Zemo goes after this story is over, I guess.

    In any case, I'd be really happy to see the Thunderbolts in the MCU. But I will be hugely disappointed if they don't include Songbird, at least, from the original team.

    In various comics over the decades, Captain America has faced off against the Hulk, so MCU-Bucky (enhanced in his own way and we can assume is tactically above most between his army and Hydra training) might have his chances against an Abomination-level villain.

    It may not even have to be about overpowering Abomination. It could be more of a "lead him into this trap" type of thing.

    I mean, sure, ok, in comics any character can face any character. But a hulk level threat *and* a whole team along with him? Seems stretching it to me. But it depends on the execution, as always.

    One other thing worth mentioning is that Bucky did lead his own team of Thunderbolts fairly recently. Perhaps the Thunderbolts are the main story - Bucky convincing them to leave Zemo and go straight. That would be a decent possibility.

    Many costumes don't look good on set because they're designed to work with set lighting and possible filters. These are crap shots taken with a phone. Wait untill you see it on screen.

    Yeah, I've often been shocked at how different costumes and set and things like that look in behind the scenes rough pictures and footage, compared to the final movie or episode once all the color correction and filters and things have been applied.
    I didn't realize there actually were that many villains that survived their movie. Does sound like some good possibilities for the lineup.

    Keep an eye out on YouTube for the Falcon and Winter Soldier footage debuted during the Superbowl.

    That Falcon and Winter Soldier footage felt like it went by so quick. We might have to wait another 4 or 5 months before we see anything else from the show.

    I'm looking forward to Falcon and the Winter Soldier more than any other announced Marvel movie/series.

    Read somewhere a while ago that it would be 6 Eps airing in the fall.

    Not a ton of footage for it in the preview, but what we did get is pretty cool.

    Agreed. They are the most interesting characters of the news series, and have the best plots running from the MCU.
