Bad news Marvel fans, it looks like the release of the first Marvel Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has been delayed from its original August 2020 release.
Disney has not made an official statement, but in reports sent to media for upcoming August Disney+ releases, the show was not listed among the titles heading to the streaming titan. Disney+ now advertises the series for a Fall 2020 release as well. Filming for the series in Prague was halted in early March in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and has not yet resumed.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier follows Sam Wilson a.k.a Falcon and Bucky Barnes a.k.a the Winter Soldier in the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame and the loss of Steve Rogers. Sam Wilson takes up the mantle of Captain America and wields the iconic vibranium shield, but the US Government may have a few different ideas as to who they think should have it. It stars Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Sebastian Stan as the Winter Soldier, along with a few other reprisals, Elizabeth VanCamp as Sharon Carter and Daniel Brühl as Zemo. It will also feature some new arrivals including Wyatt Russell as John Walker, and Desmond Chiam, Miki Ishikawa, and Adepero Oduye in currently unknown roles.
Additionally, Elizabeth Olsen’s WandaVision had wrapped filming earlier this year, but it would seem some to the cast is set to head back for reshoots potentially this month if current safety guidelines and conditions allow. If this will affect its late 2020 release is still unknown.
