(series review) [STREAMING] - Marvel Studios: Legends - "The Falcon"

These short reels are 8-9 minutes of excellent footage and storytelling.

Please note: this review may have mild spoilers as this docuseries acts as a "catch-up", reminder and/or telling of a characters' inception in the Marvel Cinematic Universe up until now in phase 4 collated in 8-9 minutes.

In case you haven't seen a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie before, any or a couple, this is 7 glorious minutes cleverly cut from multiple films that act as a highlight reel of a character's journey or backstory through the MCU into Phase 4.  Extremely important if you want to learn about a character before heading into DisneyPlus's The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, starring The Falcon and The Winter Soldier with supporting cast.

The Falcon, Sam Wilson became friends with Captain America, Steve Rogers by having something in common, they were both soldiers .  One, a soldier from the 1940's and the other a Pararescueman who now spends his time looking after/helping vets.  They created an immediate bond via their banter and when things got difficult due to the rise of Hydra, Sam was the person Steve turned to when S.H.I.E.L.D was compromised.  Sam helped Steve on defeating Hydra as well as fighting Steve's best friend Bucky.  Sam stood by Steve's side after the attack to Sokovia and ultimately also went on the run with him when The Avengers were torn apart.
When news of the mad titan Thano's was coming to Earth, Sam once again came out of hiding with Captain America and fought by his side and after the objective was completed, Sam came back calling "On your Left!", a call back to when Sam and Steve first met and they fought once again, side-by-side to save the world.

These 9 minutes are a collection of clips, but if you were to get the backstory so far surrounding this character and all the events that lead up to The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, you must watch Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War & Avengers: Endgame.

This is an excellent recap for both fans and newbies alike.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier picks up after these events.
