“Day 1 – Craaazy to see it come to life. Marvel ain’t allowing photos from set right now but this a huge day for a lot of people including me.”
Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan are reprising their roles as Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes. Emily VanCamp is also officially to return, VanCamp originated the role of Sharon Carter in Captain America: The Winter Soldier before reprising her part in Civil War. Daniel Bruhl will also return as Baron Zemo. Wyatt Russell (son of Disney Legend Kurt Russell) will play John Walker aka U.S. Agent, a villainous form of Captain America.
All six episodes of the miniseries, which will air in August 2020, will be directed by Emmy nominee Kari Skogland (The Handmaids Tale, The Punisher), with Derek Kolstad (John Wick) apart of the writing team. There are reports that surfaced last week that the series could have some sort of massive viral threat in the series.
