Warning: SPOILERS FOR ENDGAME AND THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER S1 E5

Avengers: Endgame marked the end of an era of superheroes most of us grew up watching. The chartbuster also came with tons of surprises. One of which was definitely the death of our beloved Iron Man, Tony Stark. Disney’s newest productions, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier starts off with the events after Endgame. The entire world is changed and the people who had once disappeared after the Snap have now returned only to be faced with much worse circumstances, that of rehabilitation of the ones who were lost. One of the running factors of TFATWS is the way it tackles talks around systemic racism. Throughout the numerous episodes which have been released on the Disney+ app, the miniseries showcases numerous instances of how refugees are treated. The recent episode titled, “Truth” comes with its own set of reveals and an end credit scene.

Remember the end credits for Endgame which left fans dumbfounded? Disney had released a statement shortly after, crediting the sound of the hammer to Iron Man. However, the recent episode of TFATWS seems to have a huge parallel with the end credits. The end credits for Episode 5 of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was insightful for two main reasons. One being that of John Walker who is so adamant on being Captain America that he is building a new shield from scratch. The second, the thunk of the hammer against the metal, drawing a huge parallel with the end credits which were that of Iron Man building his first-ever suit. Is this a possible easter egg or just another coincidence? The concluding unnamed episode 6 is set to release on 23rd April 2021.
