Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was supposed to debut this month, but sadly, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, things quickly changed. Leaving the series undated.
With production expected to resume this month, the studio is hoping to get the series all wrapped as soon as possible. Now, thanks to a user on Twitter, they have shared a look at some merchandise for the series that is being sold at a Walmart, which can be seen below.
What does this mean? Well, a company usually begins putting merch out for film/tv projects that are set to release very soon. So, maybe Disney/Marvel are still aiming for a 2020 release after all. It has been heavily speculated that The Falcon and Winter Soldier could still aim for a October/November release, it would be unlikely the debut the series in December as WandaVision is expected to debut then, and I’d find it very hard to believe that Marvel Studios would release two series in the same month, or maybe they push WandaVision back to 2021. It’s tough to speculate nowadays as 2020 has been an unusual year to say the least.
Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan return as Sam Wilson aka The Falcon and Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier. Also reprising their roles in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter and Daniel Bruhl as Baron Zemo, who orchestrated the events of Captain America: Civil War. Newcomers to the MCU for the series include Wyatt Russell (son of Disney Legend Kurt Russell) is John Walker “U.S. Agent.” With Cle Bennett, Carl Lumbly, Desmond Chiam, Miki Ishikawa, Adepero Oduye, and Erin Kellyman, all in unknown roles. There have been reports that the Dora Milaje, who protects the king and the royal family of Wakanda in Black Panther, will also make an appearance.
All six episodes of the miniseries will be directed by Emmy nominee Kari Skogland (The Handmaids Tale, The Punisher), with Derek Kolstad (John Wick) apart of the writing team. Some reports surfaced that the series could have some sort of massive viral threat, and will introduce the villain turned hero team The Thunderbolts.
