Marvel released a new featurette focusing on the Wakandans unexpected appearance in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Marvel Studios is building a crazy amount of hype every single week thanks to each new episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+. With Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes on a globetrotting adventure, fighting serious threats like the Flag Smashers and U.S. Agent, fans are absolutely hooked and waiting for the events of the final two episodes coming in the next couple weeks.
Episode 4 brought a whole new dynamic to the show with Florence Kasumba’s Ayo coming into the mix as she brought the Dora Milaje from Wakanda into play. Her struggle with Bucky’s decision to free Helmut Zemo was on full display, and their fight with U.S. Agent and Battlestar proved once again that they are a force to be reckoned with.
With an unexpected appearance this early in Phase 4, the Dora Milaje have made headlines for most of the past week thanks to their addition to Sam and Bucky’s solo adventure. Marvel Studios clearly noticed, which was shown by their latest featurette on Youtube.
Marvel Studios’ Wakandans Featurette
Preceding the debut of Episode 5 of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Marvel Studios released a one-minute featurette centered around the Wakandans’ appearance in last week’s episode. That video can be seen below:
Featuring interviews with director Kari Skogland along with stars Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Florence Kasumba, and Wyatt Russell, the team gives a tease of just how much fun it was to have the fictional African nation come into this journey. Nobody seemed to have any idea of what to expect from the addition of the Wakandans, and it made for some thrilling action as the Dora Milaje showed their prowess against the show’s central team.
Whether the Dora come back in the last couple of episodes is still a mystery, but it’s clear that they are as strong as ever with plenty of Wakandan action set to come in the next few years. Black Panther 2 will feature them much more heavily, as will Ryan Coogler’s untitled Disney+ series centered around the fictional African nation, and the Marvel fandom will be all over it.
Episode 5 of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will premiere tonight on Disney+. What did you think of the new video featuring the Wakandans? What are you looking forward to as the series comes to a close soon? Let us know in the comment section below or over on our social media!
