So what can we gather from this? The ending of Avengers: Endgame saw an elder Steve Rodgers pass on his Captain America shield to Sam while Bucky looked on - and now it looks like Steve's two best pals are forging a future without him.

The show will be out on 19 March

The pair were also victims of Thanos' snap in Infinity War, so it is likely that the story will follow on from them returning after five years, and dealing with new threats that have arisen during that time. The trailers so far have kept much of the storyline under wraps, so we can't wait to see it unfold on the screen.

Who is in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier cast? 

Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan will reprise their roles as Sam and Bucky respectively, while the latest trailer has also confirmed that Emily VanCamp will be returning as Peggy's niece and Steve's love interest, Sharon Carter. Daniel Bruhl will also be returning as Baron Zemo, and the cast will also welcome Adepero Oduye as Sarah Wilson, while Don Cheadle will also make an appearance as Rhodey.
