The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is an upcoming American web television miniseries created for Disney+ by Malcolm Spellman, based on the Marvel Comics characters Sam Wilson / Falcon and Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films of the franchise. The events of the series take place after the 2019 film Avengers: Endgame. The series is produced by Marvel Studios, with Spellman serving as head writer and Kari Skogland directing.
Release date: Late 2020
Cast: Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Daniel Bruhl, Emily VanCamp, Wyatt Russell
Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan reprise their roles as Falcon and Winter Soldier, respectively, from the film series. Daniel Brühl, Emily VanCamp, and Wyatt Russell also star. As of September 2018, Marvel Studios was developing a number of limited series for Disney+, centered on supporting characters from the MCU films, with Spellman hired to write one on Falcon and Winter Soldier in October. The series was officially confirmed in April 2019 along with Mackie and Stan’s involvement. Skogland was hired the next month. Filming began in October 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is expected to be released in late 2020, and will consist of six episodes. Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes deal with the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame (2019), in which Wilson was handed the mantle of Captain America.
Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson / Falcon: An Avenger and a former pararescueman who was trained by the military in aerial combat using a specially designed wing pack. Wilson was handed the mantle of Captain America by Steve Rogers at the end of Avengers: Endgame (2019), but continues to use the Falcon moniker. The series explores Wilson’s actions after receiving Captain America’s shield.
Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier: An enhanced soldier and Rogers’ best friend who reemerged as a brainwashed assassin after being thought killed in action during World War II.
Daniel Brühl as Baron Helmut Zemo: A Sokovian terrorist who was responsible for the Avengers’ breakup in Captain America: Civil War (2016). Zemo wears his traditional purple mask from the comics in the series, which he was not depicted with in Civil War.
Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter: A former agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Peggy Carter’s niece. VanCamp said that Carter has been on the run since she was last seen in Civil War, and the series would show what she has been doing in that time.
Wyatt Russell as John Walker: A militaristic successor to Captain America created by the U.S. government. Additionally, Adepero Oduye, Desmond Chiam, Miki Ishikawa, and Noah Mills have been cast in undisclosed roles.
By September 2018, Marvel Studios was developing several limited series for its parent company Disney’s streaming service, Disney+, to be centered on supporting characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films who had not starred in their own films. The actors who portrayed the characters in the films were expected to reprise their roles for the limited series. The series were expected to be six to eight episodes each and have a “hefty rivaling those of a major studio production”. The series would be produced by Marvel Studios rather than Marvel Television, who produced previous television series in the MCU. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was believed to be taking a “hands-on role” in each series’ development, focusing on “continuity of story” with the films and “handling” the actors who would be reprising their roles from the films.
Malcolm Spellman was hired to write a limited series that would focus on Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson / Falcon and Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier at the end of October 2018. Mackie and Stan had both previously expressed interest in starring in an MCU spin-off film together, with Stan comparing the potential idea to buddy comedy films like Midnight Run (1988) and 48 Hrs. (1982). Marvel and Disney officially announced the series in April 2019, with the title The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The next month, the miniseries was confirmed to consist of six episodes, and Kari Skogland was hired to direct. Budgets for each episode were reported to be as much as $25 million.
The series picks up following the ending of the film Avengers: Endgame (2019), which depicts Steve Rogers bequeathing his shield and the mantle of Captain America to Wilson. Derek Kolstad joined the series’ writing team in July 2019, and said he would be bringing “a wink and a nod” to the style of world building and character development from his film franchise John Wick. Kolstad added that the series would explore reactions to a black man becoming Captain America. Spellman wanted to “go home” with the characters and let the actors show their skills rather than simply focus on action in the series. [ref]
