Sam Wilson’s Captain America suit looks very different in the MCU concept art

The concept art for Sam Wilson’s Captain America suit looked very different from the final version seen in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.

The concept art for Sam Wilson’s Captain America suit looks very different from the final version shown in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. In the second MCU series to release on Disney+, Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) teamed up to track down and stop the anarchist anti-patriotism group known as the Flag Smashers. Led by Karli Morgenthau (Eria Kellyman), the group aims to reopen national borders in order to take the world back to a time akin to five-year-old blip.

Set six months after the events of Avengers: Endgame, Wilson as Falcon rejects Captain America’s mantle and gives his shield to the US government for display in a museum. This angers Barnes, who sees it as a betrayal of Rogers’ wish, especially when the US government gives it to a new Captain America, John Walker. After fighting the Flag Smashers, battling with Walker, and having his integrity questioned by both his government and Morgenthau, Wilson eventually accepts the shield and becomes Captain America. His outfit closely resembles his costume from the original Marvel Comics version, as it combines elements of his hawk wings with the style of the classic Captain America suit.

The final design in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Finale had blue collapsible wings similar in style to those of his hawk wings, although they were a different color. The designers of the series seemed to have played with many designs that differed significantly between versions. They tried single-color wings in each of the colors of the US flag with no segmented sections, however the designers opted for blue wings rather than red, which his original comic book version tended to show.


The concept artists were tasked with the unique challenge of designing a character based on an earlier version in the comics while trying to stay true to both the MCU Falcon design and the MCU Captain America design. Although the series received mixed reviews, the final costume design was widely praised for staying true to the original design while adapting the MCU aesthetic. Although Wilson’s Captain America only appeared in one episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldierthe costume will have another moment in the spotlight when Wilson returns Captain America 4.
