The world is ending….or at least it is if you’re a fan of The Falcon And The Winter Soldier. This beloved Marvel TV Show is ending this week, and every Marvel fan is sad to see it go. The adventures of Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) as they take on the legacy of Captain America got us through lockdown, and we will miss them. But what if there are similar shows that will heal our heart just a bit?
1. The Boys
This super amazing show features a superhero team, morally corrupt and selfish and unlike the superheroes the world needs. Not dissimilar to the new Captain America the U.S. government thrusts on its people, John Walker, who is selfish to boot and heady with the power of the superhero mantle. It’s fun to watch superheroes be put into their place in both shows.
2. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
A Marvel spinoff show that captures the daily lives of superheroes, their love-hate relationships and the adventures they get up to – sound similar? That’s because both the Marvel shows are amazing, similar to each other but with very, very different characters.
3. Medici: Masters of Florence
While Medici does not have any superheroes, and isn’t even based in the 21st century, it does portray how governments ruthlessly impose their rules on the people, and how just a small group of people can fight back if they try.
Both Marvel TV shows that released in 2021, the show has more than that in common. Grief is the string that ties the two shows together, and how grief can lead to problems and solutions that take us on a journey we aren’t always prepared for.
5. The Defenders
Bucky and Sam don’t always have the most amiable relationship, and we do enjoy their old-married-couple bickering, they do come together to fight against a common enemy – something that Marvel’s The Defenders works on too.
