Disney+ Officially Delays The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
During the Super Bowl, Marvel gave fans the first glimpse of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, the first Marvel Studios original series created for Disney+. However, production was shut down back in March due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Since filming never resumed, a delay was inevitable. But today it’s official: The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will not make its August debut.
Disney+ left The Falcon and the Winter Soldier off of its list of August releases. It’s also unclear when the show will be released. But production may begin again soon. Deadline notes that Marvel Studios’ WandaVision remains on target for its release in late 2020. That series was originally slated to debut in December after the conclusion of The Mandalorian season 2.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will reunite Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan’s title characters for their first adventure after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Daniel Brühl and Emily VanCamp will also make their MCU returns as Helmut Zemo and Sharon Carter. Wyatt Russell will portray John Walker, the government’s choice to be the new Captain America. Additionally, Adepero Oduye, Desmond Chiam, Miki Ishikawa, Noah Mills, and Carl Lumbly will appear in the series.
