Le scénariste et producteur de télévision Rodney Barnes (Ma famille d’abord, Tout le monde déteste Chris, Les Boondocks…) écrira la série Falcon. Sam Wilson aura un nouveau partenaire, le nouveau Patriot, et son premier adversaire sera Blackheart, le fils de Mephisto.
La partie graphique a été confiée à Joshua Cassara (Secret Empire: Uprising, The Troop).
Rodney Barnes : “At the moment, Sam is in a state of transition. He feels guilty about his relationship with Steve Rogers and wonders if he didn’t pick up clues as to what team Steve was really playing for what else has he missed? So he’s backing away from the limelight for a spell and taking a more grass roots approach to making the world a better place.
He needs a break and some distance between himself and the role he’s played as of late. He’s disappointed in Steve Rogers and in himself for not seeing the signs sooner. This is a time for resetting the table.”
“Genre wise there’s a blending of urban street sensibilities with dark magic. Sam’s never been to the place we’re taking him and it’s going to take more than muscle to overcome the obstacles in his path. My hope is that taking Sam out of his typical environment will cause him to use wits of a different sort. The fight now is from the inside out. And since he’s soul searching it felt kind of cool to put him in the spiritual realm. Blackheart was a character I’ve appreciated for a long time. I felt his frustration at being a second stringer on the demon totem pole so why wouldn’t he take his shot at shaking up the world? If a bad kid won’t listen to his parents surely a Demon son wouldn’t take well to conformity either.”
