Film Theory: The 3 BIG Twists Of Falcon and The Winter Soldier! (Captain America)
Never miss a Film Theory! ►
There is a lot to unpack in the first episode of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, but why stop at that? You see, Theorists, all this setup is leading to some BIG reveals and I think I've figured it out. Today, we are not only covering what all of the clues in episode one mean for the future. I am going to predict the 3 BIG TWISTS coming up in the series and how the end will change the face of the MCU moving forward. Let's go!

    In the anime ID: Invaded (on Hulu), there is a character named John Walker. (Trying not to spoil anything) .... It would be interesting if there was a specific reason he was named that way.

    3:59 Thank you for addressing this. Most racism are in America!!!! I get so annoyed when people in America say "racism is everywhere." Nononooo don't bring other countries into this. There are racism in other countries but its nothing like in America. No other country even comes close to America.

    Okay the Hole “the flag smashers arent evil” thing might not have been a plot twist. If anything it was Marvel finnaly understanding what it means to make complecs antagonists, but i still wanna give Matpat credit. It is Nice that he gets these small victories once in a while.

  • littenger

    What if john got beat the h out of by the flag smashers due to John seen as a national symbol with baron zemo coming in and taking the shield for himself and becoming anti cap since cap was more reckless and honest zemo has shown to be the opposite

  • Lutaic

    8:37 " even killing people with his bare hands " walker literally murdered someone with the shield wow

    Wow... I'm actually surprised... I just checked Google Images for "Falcon Kick" and "Falcon Punch" and, multiple weeks after the first episode of 'Falcon and the Winter Soldier' aired (in the U.S.), there seem not to be any MCU-connected versions of the meme.

    Oh the flag smashers are bad allright. They blew up innocent people with families without remorse. I hate how they make them seem and act like they are just so innocent and pushed to do that, but they are straight up terrorists without any thought for human life. Like they are treated as liberators for killing about 20 people for really nothing, but when John Walker kills one of these terrorists after they have killed again, the public goes off the walls.

    I'd love if you could do a theory on No County for Old Men. I'm sure this comment will get lost with the others though. If anyone sees this, and agrees with me, could you please like this comment, or even comment this yourself, so there's a higher chance of this being seen. MatPat, or random commenter who reads this, thanks!

    I'll say it as often as I see it. I've always loved your channels, but bringing Bob Chipman on for comic and movie stuff is a slam dunk. You're not going to find a smarter or nerdier dude to work with you and I LOVE that you let him keep doing similar material on his channel. Classy stuff all around and I hope you benefit from both the good will and the stellar work. It's always a treat seeing good creators collaborate. [edit: it just occurred that this opens with a Nintendo joke. You guys are made for each other]
