Disney Plus’ upcoming The Falcon and the Winter Soldier premiere date has been officially and quietly pushed back. This news is not a big shocker. In March, production of the Marvel series was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The series had been filming in Prague at the time. However, news of the series not premiering in August, as originally planned, had not been confirmed. Until, that is, Disney Plus released their August programming and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier series was nowhere to be found.
A source close to the situation told EW that “the premiere has indeed been delayed due to the global pandemic.” Once again, not a shocker. Hopefully the streaming network will announce a new date soon.
The Marvel series takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Sam Wilson, The Falcon (Anthony Mackie), and Bucky Barnes, The Winter Solider (Sebastian Stan), continue their global adventures after Wilson was personally handed Captain America’s shield by Cap himself. Emily VanCamp returns as Sharon Carter and Daniel Brühl reprises his role as Baron Zemo. Wyatt Russell joins the MCU as John Walker, also known in the comics as U.S. Agent. Kari Skogland directs the series and Malcolm Spellman serves as head writer.
