The new series is likely to feature Joaquin Torres as the falcon

In the recent Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode, the opening sequence features a character named Joaquin Torres, who aids Sam Wilson in his mission to recover a hostage officer. He also has to investigate new enemies the Flag Smashers, who are some new bad guys.

Sam Wilson isn't even endowed with superpowers, as many people can attest to. Falcon is a former member of Special Operations. Torres is the same type of hero, who worked hard to gain the things that make him special. It is clear from this episode that Torres is a capable military operative.

From his role on the show, fans assume that his skill level will be enough for him to be the new sidekick to Captain America, who is now Sam Wilson. It is confirmed by the fact that Joaquin Torres is the Falcon of Earth-616 in Captain America: Sam Wilson comic.
