Sam Wilson returns as Captain Americaand a new trailer from Marvel shows the hero competing for the premiere of his new series.
As Sam Wilson prepares to wear Captain America’s star-studded shield again, Marvel Comics has released a new trailer to whet the appetite of fans eager for the Avengers to get underway. It’s been eight years since Wilson first traded his Falcon identity for Captain America, and now he’s coming back to don the red, white, and blue colors again in the “Captain America: Symbol of Truth” movie.
Sam first appeared as the Falcon in Captain America #117 by Stan Lee, Gene Colan, Joe Sinnott and Sam Rosen. With wings that allow it to fly through the air and a strong telepathic connection to birds, the Falcon has been battling his best friend Steve Rogers for decades. When Rogers perished a few decades after his super soldier serum was neutralized, Sam stepped up to take on the mantle of Captain America and preserve the legacy.

Although Sam eventually returned to his old identity, he returns to the role of Captain America in the film “Captain America: Symbol of Truth” by Tochi Onyebuchi and RB Silva. To prepare readers, Marvel has released a short trailer that shows Wilson’s action-packed return. An exciting preview shows Sam diving into the action as he battles an attacking squad. Fortunately, Wilson isn’t alone in the fight, he was joined by his longtime avian partner Redwing and the latest Falcon Joaquin Torres. The trio soar proudly as the trailer draws to a close, informing viewers about the creative team and when to expect Sam’s new adventures as Captain America.
The latest preview follows Marvel’s recent efforts to lure potential readers to its exciting lineup with animated versions of its comics. From the nightmarish atmosphere created in the “Ghost Rider” teaser to the mysterious tension of the early Spider-Man image, Marvel knocks him out of the park with this new level of social media engagement. These trailers are a great way to draw attention to new current series for fans who may not be following the development of comics. Previews also help set the mood for these comics, which often have dramatic changes in the tone of their characters.
For example, this is the first time Sam has worn Captain America’s mantle since he gave it up five years ago. When Marvel announced that Sam would return to star in his own book, Captain America, they emphasized that his mission would take him across the world stage in an adventure that promises action and conflict. The trailer keeps this promise and shows that Sam will have a very dramatic return to his former personality. The return of Sam Wilson as Captain America is something that many fans have been looking forward to, and nothing will help spread the word like another high-quality trailer from Marvel.
