Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was nearing completion of production until COVID-19 abruptly halted things in mid-March. Now, six months later the studio is looking to get the production back on track.
According to The Direct, the series is looking to resume production in Atlanta, Georgia starting Monday, September 8. This confirms previous reports from insider Charles Murphy, who previously stated the studio was aiming to get cameras rolling on the project sometime in September, The Direct’s report now confirms that.
Another report from Murphy’s Multiverse states that the series will also be making its return to Prague in the Czech Republic, where the series was beginning to film before the shut down, now that Carnival Row recently finishing filming its second season there.
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.
As of now, it is unknown when the series will debut on Disney+. Here’s hoping for a safe production for the cast and crew and hopefully we’ll get the show sooner rather than later.
