Oh man, there's a forum for this now. I'm sure I'll have a shitload of things to say here in the future so be warned!

I may feel stupid for asking this, but can someone please explain the "Timing: Year One" in the description to me? I noticed the Loki one says "Timing: Year Two", but I don't know what that means. Thanks in advance!

Yeah I originally thought it was "Year One" (after endgame) but, seeing the Year Two for Loki makes me think production/streaming season.

Yes, it does have to do with their production season - this show is targeted to come out in the first year, with Loki and WandaVision scheduled to come out in the second year.

I wonder what they are considering a year/season? I know the Star Wars series The Mandalorian will launch Disney+ in November. But they offered no dates for any other show (that I can recall). So does Year One mean Fall/Winter 2019 or Spring 2020 like TV Seasons?

Or does Year One mean November 2019 - October 2020?

I know they've already announced a Diego Luna Star Wars Spy series for 2021 so they have long term plans.

I'm honestly going to sub to Disney+ just for these Marvel shows. I don't pay for my Netflix account (I use my mom's) so I can fork out the monthly fee to keep myself happy.

Oh those wily fuckers will be getting my money for sure. If it was just Loki and the VisionWitch show I probably could have resisted but Sam and Bucky are two of my favorite characters. They haven't really gotten their due in the movies to my satisfaction so I'm really looking forward to this one. Glad it will be in Year One.

If Marvel follow the example of the Winter Soldier and Black Widow comic book (without Black Widow, sadly) then I could be really into this show - A 70s style, espionage thriller, with them trying to get to the bottom of conspiracies around the Soviet programme that created the Winter Soldier.

But as Bucky is my favourite Marvel character, whatever format they go for should be something I'll want to watch. I like Anthony Mackie, and I liked the friendship that grew between Bucky and Falcon in the comics.

And now that Marvel/Disney own the X-Men, I will be holding out for an X-Factor Investigations show too.

Zemo could make for a very interesting recurring villain... or even the villain storyline for the mini. Bucky, Sam and Sharon were all in the movie that actually dealt with him.

I'm interested.

Does Bucky have the same super running speed as Steve? Bucky can continue saying "On your left" to Falcon.....

He can definitely run faster than a normal person, going off the chase scene in Civil War. Hydra used some knock off version of the supersoldier serum on him, which may have given him a lesser version of Steve's abilities. But he's got the metal (vibranium, now) arm which gives him a greater strength advantage.

Seriously? This is what they're going to with? I've deliberately set my expectations very low because I no longer trust Marvel to do right by the characters. I just have a feeling that they're going to royally fuck this up. I hope I'm wrong but I fear I'm right.

I've heard this before, with John Cena being speculated as a government approved Cap. The government in the MCU is usually corrupt and Hydra-ridden, so it would be par for the course for them.

Eh, it seems sadly accurate to our times. And Marvel comics have often focused on prejudice of various types. But that's Sam's story, and I'm far more interested in Bucky's.

I LOVE the idea of the buddy cop nature of FalconCap and TWS, but I think there is enough meat in both of their stories to be separate.  

I also think Seb Stan can have chemistry with broomsticks, but I would like to keep him away from Sharon.  They really f'ed up the Sharon character, and I'm not a huge EVC fan (though, I loved her back in the day in Everwood).  Look, expectations are high when you aunt is freaking Peggy Carter, and Sharon was soooo boring.   Plus, I had my heart set on having a retcon of the White Wolf storyline and keep Buck in Wakanda.  That small post-credit of Shuri and Buck chatting had ppl (read:  me and some of twitter) feeling it (yes, I know canon Shuri is young, but MCU Shuri is grown). 

That said, damn them.  Take my money.  Between this and Loki, they got me.

Agree with this but I also don't want him and Shuri to be anything more than friends. If she wouldn't have been snapped then she would be in her early 20s now but she was so she's still a teenager. I'm not really sure how old we're supposed to consider Bucky to be, what with all the cryo freezing and the fact that he was snapped for those 5 years but I can't see him as being less than 30.

SS is about to turn 37 and the reason I know that is because his birthday is one day before mine. What? I saw it when I looked him up on IMDB once to see what other movies he'd been in. Don't look at me like that! 😅

Yeah, I was totally down for it after BP until someone mentioned Shuri was a teenager. I honestly thought she was 22-24 in BP, just sheltered.

I bought I new TV just so I could get Disney+ and watch THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER!  I'm pumped!  🙂

In CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, Steve had a line that suggested that Bucky was actually faster than him.  

"He's fast. Strong. Had a metal arm."

At the very least, Bucky's speed was something that Cap called out as being exceptional.
