Well folks, it’s finally here. Disney Plus is available and for the low price of $6.99 a month, you can watch Marvel movies, Pixar animation, Star Wars and even every episode of The Simpsons (thanks 20th Century Fox).
But like every streaming service, it’s the original content that makes each of them stand out. For Disney Plus, The Mandalorian is obviously the most anticipated new thing, but the site also has numerous Marvel shows arriving next year. And to learn a little more about WandaVision, Loki and Hawkeye, Disney Plus debuted Expanding the Universe, an exclusive new special revealing further plot details and concept art for all of these shows.
For one, Emily VanCamp is back as Sharon Carter aka Agent 13. The last time we saw her, she was making out with Cap under a bridge. So much for that potential romance. At least she looks snazzy in her new getup. Although, the outfit reminds me of a line in the movie Spy where Melissa McCarthy’s character insults Rose Byrne by telling her she looks like a slutty dolphin trainer.
Wyatt Russell, meanwhile, plays someone named John Walker and he’s just basically wearing an older suit worn by Captain America. Interested to learn more about him, though.
But of course, the two titular characters are what everyone’s focused on. Sam Wilson aka the Falcon is donning a mostly red suit that resembles something Captain Marvel would wear, while Bucky Barnes aka the Winter Soldier is undoubtedly getting the most attention for his new look.
He’s got a new suit (blue to Falcon’s red) and his bionic arm is now blue with a white star front and center. But like Thor before him, Barnes has elected to cut the metal band locks he’s been sporting since Captain America: The Winter Soldier in favor of a more modern look. Marvel is known for giving their superheroes makeovers, of course, and the fans appear to be fine with the style change, as evidenced below:

Huh. These images from the new Disney marvel stuff kind of makes it look like Bucky is cap and not Sam.

bucky's costume has the blue point and the black sides like his cap outfit thats kinda cute. also sam's looks more like his classic costume than his cap one but i guess that makes sense for the time being
