It’s a good time to be a Marvel fan as it develops six- to eight-episode limited series for Disney+. Among them is Falcon and the Winter Soldier that follows Falcon and Winter Soldier in a story that takes place Avengers: Endgame.
The series started production in April 2019, and its six episodes are slated to premiere on Disney+ in late 2020.
The series revolves around Sam Wilson (Falcon) and Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier). We’re guessing they’re going to fight crime and look good doing it, but no information about the plot has been officially released.
If you saw Avengers: Endgame, you know that Steve Rogers passed the Captain America shield to Sam Wilson, basically designating him as his successor. That plot point will figure into the series, but no further details are available.
Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan repeat their roles as Falcon and Winter Soldier from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The cast also includes Daniel Brühl as Helmut Zemo, the man who drove a wedge between Cap and Iron Man in Civil War, and Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, Peggy Carter’s niece. And Wyatt Russell appear as John Walker.
Marvel’s TV shows have been received with praise and enthusiasm by fans and critics alike. We expect that Falcon and the Winter Soldier won’t break that pattern, especially given Mackie and Stan’s easy chemistry.
The series is created by Malcolm Spellman (Empire), with Kari Skogland (The Handmaid’s Tale) set to direct. Derek Kolstad, the man responsible for the John Wick franchise, joined the writing team earlier this year and mentioned that the series explores the social implications of Falcon becoming Captain America. Additionally, Marvel released some key art for the new show — and it looks pretty great.
Of course, with everything kept under wraps, it’s difficult to say where the story will go, despite rumors making their way to the mainstream. Yet, we’re ready to bet that Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be worth the wait. Until then, there’s plenty of content to keep you busy while you wait for the new Marvel series to debut.
