There is a lot to unpack in the first episode of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, but why stop at that? You see, Theorists, all this setup is leading to some BIG reveals and I think I've figured it out. Today, we are not only covering what all of the clues in episode one mean for the future. I am going to predict the 3 BIG TWISTS coming up in the series and how the end will change the face of the MCU moving forward. Let's go!

  • welp looks like john walker is going to become evil.

  • I was directed to this video by MovieBob's latest episode of The Big Picture, because he said he co-wrote this one.

  • Start off with talking about irrelevant dipshit to hook some watch time. MatPat’s classic

  • 3:59 Thank you for addressing this. Most racism are in America!!!! I get so annoyed when people in America say "racism is everywhere." Nononooo don't bring other countries into this. There are racism in other countries but its nothing like in America. No other country even comes close to America.

  • omg guys Matpat was right about Sharon my jaw dropped :000

  • I can not believe he was right about sharon carter, we still have an episode to go but I'm like 95% sure she's the power broker

  • I want a young avengers theory even though we are probably never gonna get one this year.

  • Can we get a video about the physics of the shield please?? It doesn’t make any sense to me 😂

  • Great theory as always...BUT, have u considered the slight chance that maybe, just maybe... 🦹🏻‍♀️IT🎶WAS🎶AGATHA🎶ALL🎶ALONG🦹🏻‍♀️

  • I mean, all of this is just, obvious

  • Welp...... wait 'til MatPat sees the next four episodes.....

  • Huh it's true

  • Wow they hit that end well.

  • I watched a recent episode with my family and like, i haven't seen the newest episode but Sharon's definitely a little shady.

  • AIR force not army

  • I love how this went from plausible low stakes predictions to "Sharon Carter is mephisto confirmed"

  • Yeah... Sharon is definitely not sus... *cough cough "powerbroker" What? That was nothing, anyway, Zemo bad guy, am I right?

  • Okay the Hole “the flag smashers arent evil” thing might not have been a plot twist. If anything it was Marvel finnaly understanding what it means to make complecs antagonists, but i still wanna give Matpat credit. It is Nice that he gets these small victories once in a while.

  • This guys the goat he got 2 out of 3 right

  • Oh boy was that wrong

  • Close to 10million!

  • man literally just predicted the series

  • What if john got beat the h out of by the flag smashers due to John seen as a national symbol with baron zemo coming in and taking the shield for himself and becoming anti cap since cap was more reckless and honest zemo has shown to be the opposite

  • 8:37 " even killing people with his bare hands " walker literally murdered someone with the shield wow

  • Is John Walker actually evil?

    • I wouldn't say evil, but has a warped view of right and wrong, with mental instability coming from PTSD AND the knock-off serum.

  • I came from the future to say Matt was likely right, Contessa Valentina (Madame Hydra) is recruiting the dark Avengers just like Steve Rogers was "The first avenger".

  • Eric Voss is a legend.

  • 0:49 the one you pause on you have to go watch

  • Jerry Nadler told me to remind you that the Flag Smashers are just a myth

  • My theory (which I thought when I first saw this) was that all the flag smashers will die all. except kali who will adopt the title of flag smasher.

  • forest gump Eeets MARVLE: LIEUTENAMT SAM.

  • I love how this went from plausible low stakes predictions to "Sharon Carter is mephisto confirmed"

  • Val

  • Looks like one of his off the cuff speculations might have ended up being the twist.

  • Wow... I'm actually surprised... I just checked Google Images for "Falcon Kick" and "Falcon Punch" and, multiple weeks after the first episode of 'Falcon and the Winter Soldier' aired (in the U.S.), there seem not to be any MCU-connected versions of the meme.

  • >Mentioning Thaddeus Ross and Red Hulk like they're different people I'm gonna have to dock a few nerd points off you on that one Mat.

  • Shows Erik Voss

  • And btw there are some John wick references in falcon and the winter soldier, how do I know that u may ask..... Cause I watched Canadian lad's vid about falcon and the winter soldier

  • Mat can u watch Canadian lad's vid about falcon and the winter soldier

  • Totally wrong

    • It is a theory It is not supposed to be 100% correct

    • How

  • That Sharon Carter theory doesn't look as bad now. On ep 5 and a few are thinking she's the power broker

  • I'm just wondering if this captain america is william burnside

  • Oho boy just watch the fourth episode

  • Putting all of US' real life issues in a comic based show turned me off from even watching til the end.

    • yeah how dare they put politics in a CAPTAIN AMERICA series. I swear have you even even read a comic?

  • Walker is a frickin cycopath

  • Not Erick Voss saying Mephisto 🤣

  • Oh the flag smashers are bad allright. They blew up innocent people with families without remorse. I hate how they make them seem and act like they are just so innocent and pushed to do that, but they are straight up terrorists without any thought for human life. Like they are treated as liberators for killing about 20 people for really nothing, but when John Walker kills one of these terrorists after they have killed again, the public goes off the walls.

    • I think some of the other Flag Smashers are questioning Karli's methods.

  • I love the falcon punch start

  • Imagine using I'm not racist a good symbolism of society an actual decent song and misunderstanding it

  • Do a stranger things theory

  • I'd love if you could do a theory on No County for Old Men. I'm sure this comment will get lost with the others though. If anyone sees this, and agrees with me, could you please like this comment, or even comment this yourself, so there's a higher chance of this being seen. MatPat, or random commenter who reads this, thanks!

  • I really dislike how you pertrayed nationalism as a evil ideology when there are VERY valid reasons for it to exist.

  • Sharon is looking like a villain now. Bet MatPat didn’t see that coming😂

  • Sharon Carter will be the new Captain America. Sharon Carter will be the new Captain America

  • I know it wasn’t just me when Captain America gave Falcon the Shield like “OMG Captain Falcon” 😂

  • after watching episode 4, gotta admit Matpat, you got this one spot on

  • ahhhhh how did you now

  • He did Erik Voss dirty

  • Cool

  • I need more falcon and winter soldier theories

  • Flag smashers are down with the NWO?

  • Captain America is a flag smasher? He has a flag on his chest and he is hitting people. Hmm

  • DCEU and Comics won the war since 2013.

  • I can’t believe he got it with the throwaway “hey probably not” theory

  • 2:15 is that juice wrld

  • What I'm waiting for is a thunder mountain movie

  • Oh just wait until he sees Episode four. The final scene was horrific but a beautiful showing of symbolism and artistry.

  • Good job you just gave new rockstars free advertisement. Just saying...

  • I feel like falcon give up the shield is like Luke skywalker throw away his father's lightsaber

  • The falcon is dead - you cant depressurize a C-10 Hercules at 38,000 ft - Nor can the falcon fly that high without a supply of oxygen

  • FALCO’....PUNCH!!!

  • Red hulk will be the twist

  • I can’t believe he got it all right!!!! Everything from flagsmashers aren’t big bad and John Walker is a bad guy

  • that.

  • I believe in Cap #345 it was his mom dying that sent him over the edge. I suggest everyone read Cap #350. One of my favorite single issues ever

  • That longshot about Sharon might actually hit

  • Tbh I don’t think there’s going to be a clear cut bad guy at the end of this show.


  • I'll say it as often as I see it. I've always loved your channels, but bringing Bob Chipman on for comic and movie stuff is a slam dunk. You're not going to find a smarter or nerdier dude to work with you and I LOVE that you let him keep doing similar material on his channel. Classy stuff all around and I hope you benefit from both the good will and the stellar work. It's always a treat seeing good creators collaborate. [edit: it just occurred that this opens with a Nintendo joke. You guys are made for each other]

  • I literally just watched "I'm not racist"

  • DC: **exists** Marvel: *Oh um- sorry.. I’m just going to squeeze over here...*

  • I should be doing my group project by I ended up watching movie conspiracy theories. Love it

  • When MatPat said “Big Bohner Energy”, he sounded like like moistcr1tikal. (Penguinz0)

  • ?

  • There wasn't an "America First" Movement before WW2. The entire country was still reeling from the effects of WW1 and the Great Depression. Not to mention that the United States had a large number of recent German immigrants enter the country after the first World War. It was all three of these factors which made the U.S. very hesitant to get involved in WW2. Any attempt to revise history by injecting a false narrative because it fits your personal political bias is not only dishonest, it's irresponsible and deserves to be called out.

  • I hate that disney+ is hasn't come to my country

    • If you can afford it get a VPN.

  • zemo destroying the super soldier serums made me smile

  • I remember Captain explaining the difference between patriotism and nationalism to a villain who's motif was also America. I wonder if we will get that here.

  • Spoiler if you haven't seen episode 2: In the second episode, I think they focused WAY too much on the 'wizard/sorceror" bit. Chekhov's gun would lead me to believe the real big bad is someone with magic or mystical powers. Mandarin, maybe?

    • He wasn’t even close with this 😂

  • Ignore the rest of the video he said "big boner energy" within the first 30 seconds. 💀😭

  • Wait Johnny Walker... The Liquor.

  • So far: >Walker is a villain. Everyone knew that since he was revealed, but yeah. >the flagsmashers are definitely not being manipulated, they’re just a misguided group who think the only way to fix the problems is with violence. >the flagsmashers are definitely real >Sharon Carter being a villain... we’ll get back to you on that one.

  • but the flag smashers are shallow selfish terrorists they enjoyed resources and space with half humanity gon which was taken away from them whenthe snap was undone

  • he got this right

  • Disney gendo pose ! Disney gendo pose !

  • If I had to think of this, so do all of you. Remember how Cap went back in time to be with Peggy? Also remember how Sharon is her niece? Well, when Cap then helps raise Sharon as her uncle, he will have to remember making out with her. Subsequently, Sharon will make out with her uncle after having been raised by a future version of him. Fun times in Alabama. You can definitely tell that they didn’t settle on the Endgame ending back when making Winter Soldier. Which, I mean... of course they didn’t because it was about 6 years later.

  • This series is basically captain America 4

  • The power broker is Betty Ross


  • I had to go watch the whole series rn lol
