Marvel Studios will reportedly start production on the The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Disney+ series this fall. The highly anticipated show is currently in the pre-production phase and was recently officially announced by Kevin Feige at San Diego Comic-Con. The Disney+ streaming platform will debut in November with the live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian, but Falcon and Winter Soldier won't end up premiering until fall 2020, which makes this fall the perfect time to start production on the show. The new series is bringing Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan's characters to the forefront.
According to Production Weekly, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will start production on October 22nd in Atlanta, Georgia. Marvel Studios shoots a lot of their big screen projects at Pinewood in Atlanta and it looks like the Disney+ shows for the small screen will do the same. The working title for the series is currently Tag Team. If this information is accurate, it will only be a matter of time before we start to get some images from the set, which will hopefully give us a better idea about the story of the show.
Anthony Mackie's Falcon was gifted the Captain America shield at the conclusion of Endgame and he will take on mantle in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, the show is very much a mystery at this point in time since we don't know when it will take place within the MCU. We could end up seeing a prequel, much like what Marvel Studios is doing with the Black Widow standalone movie, which is set after the events of Captain America: Civil War and Infinity War. With that being said John Wick creator Derek Kolstad has come on board to write some episodes.
A brief teaser from the The Falcon and The Winter Soldier series was shown at Comic-Con and it featured the return of Daniel Bruhl, who is set to reprise his role as Civil War villain Helmut Zemo. From images Bruhl shared on social media, we can see a slight tease of the classic purple costume, which is ripped straight from the comics. Another image shares the villain with his iconic mask on, which really got some Marvel Comics fans really excited.
If all goes well, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will begin shooting very soon. It appears that the teaser for the show from Comic-Con was possibly produced exclusively for the event. Whatever the case may be, MCU fans are excited for the future and are looking forward to seeing how the studio navigates projects on the small screen. Kevin Feige is excited to have the ability to really dive deep into a story, like a comic book. If all goes well with these shows, we could end up seeing a lot more of them. The latest The Falcon and The Winter Soldier update was first reported by Production Weekly.
