After WandaVision played with our emotions and took us to a different world the MCU has never explored before, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier promises to deliver fans with high-octane action that quite frankly, a lot of fans have been missing. It almost feels like the show is an extension of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and so far, I'm digging the action-thriller vibe.
Now, ahead of the show's premiere, the official title for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier's first episode has apparently leaked online and it seems to indicate that something tragic is about to unfold. The said "leak" allegedly originated from a French Disney+ account and even includes the runtime of 54 minutes.
However, ScreenRant's Tessa Smith (via @cosmic_marvel on Twitter) has dismissed the information and confirmed that the first episode will actually be 48 minutes long. But what's actually intriguing is the French title of the episode saying "Repose en Paix, Cap" which in English is translated to "Rest in Peace, Cap". Will the first episode actually feature the demise of Steve Rogers?
Now, before Cap fans get all crazy and furious, this leaked title could just be a metaphor for the idea of Captain America dying after Rogers decided to retire the star-spangled mantle in Avengers: Endgame. But of course, considering Steve returned to the present time as an aged man after returning the Infinity Stones, the possibility of his actual passing in the Marvel universe taking place real soon isn't exactly out of the question.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier hits Disney+ on March 19.
