Falcon and Winter Soldier is all set to start production in October. Sebastian Stan revealed the news at the Jus In Bello Comic-Con in Italy over the weekend where he was mostly promoting and discussing Avengers: Endgame. Details surrounding the new Disney+ series, which also stars Anthony Mackie, are a mystery for the time being, but Marvel Cinematic Universe fans are starting to get excited for the show after the big reveal at the conclusion of Endgame.
With Falcon & Winter Soldier preparing to shoot this October, it's safe to assume the new series will premiere sometime in 2020. MCU fans are looking forward to seeing Falcon take up his new mantle, which we could potentially see, if the series takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. There are still a lot of ways the show could go, in terms of the timeframe, but a current timeline makes the most sense. Will we see Winter Soldier and Falcon mourning the loss of Steve Rogers, or will the elderly version of the character show up in an episode of the show? Sebastian Stan had this to say about the show.
"I think it's time for Bucky to go out there and have an identity outside of the circumstances that we've met him through. So, I don't know, he might do all kinds of things. He might even go on a date. I don't know. Scary world out there, you know? Apps, things like that. I don't know what he's gonna do. I can't see him on an iPhone... I think it's gonna be a lot of dealing with Anthony's character and Anthony himself which is always another character."
Falcon & Winter Soldier isn't the only MCU show being planned for the upcoming Disney+ streaming platform. A series based on Scarlet Witch and Vision, aptly titled WandaVision, will also begin production this fall, according to star Elizabeth Olsen. It isn't clear where the new shows will start their productions, but Atlanta seems like a safe bet, unless Marvel Studios is planning on changing it up due to recent abortion rights in the state of Georgia. It makes sense that the studio would want to shoot multiple shows at once.
In addition to the Falcon & Winter Soldier and WandaVision shows, Disney+ is also developing a Loki series, which is set to star Tom Hiddleston. This series shows a lot of promise following the events of Avengers: Endgame, but like the other two shows, details are currently being kept under wraps, so we have no idea when the show will take place within the MCU timeline. Elizabeth Olsen revealed that she expects the WandaVision series to be around six hours long, so that could be the rule of thumb for the rest of the shows too.
Malcolm Spellman (Empire) will serve as the writer and showrunner for the Falcon & Winter Soldier series. Since cameras are preparing to roll this fall, there's a good chance we will get some more information about all of the Disney+ MCU shows this summer at San Diego Comic-Con and this year's D23. There's a lot to look forward to in the near future for MCU fans, though Phase 4 remains to be an even bigger mystery right now. Again, official announcements are on the way, so we won't be in the dark too much longer. This news comes to us from Comic Book.
