Vulture.com — And most importantly for continuity fans, Feige did say that developments in Marvel shows will impact narrative developments in upcoming superhero theatrical releases. “A post-Endgame MCU will be extremely different and extremely focused on Disney+ tying into our future,” Feige told the crowd. In other words, you have to subscribe to Disney+ if you really want to know what’s going on in the MCU.
On May 20th Deadline announced who will be directing the upcoming The Falcon and the Winter Soldier miniseries.
In addition to who will be directing they’re also reported that Captain America: Civil War’s Daniel Bruhl and Emily Van Camp will also be joining Sebastian and Anthony for the series and will air in August 2020.
Kari Skogland has been set to direct the six-part Disney+ miniseries The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, with Avengers: Endgame‘s Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan starring. Sources said Captain America: Civil War‘s Daniel Bruhl and Emily Van Camp are also in talks to join. The miniseries will air in August 2020.
I’d heard that Mackie’s accepting the shield from Captain America at the end of Avengers: Endgame will figure into the miniseries, but the studio had no comment on where it goes.
Bruhl played Zemo in Captain America: Civil War, the mastermind who drove a wedge between Captain America and Iron Man that factored into the Avengers films, and the murderer of Black Panther’s father. Malcolm Spellman (Empire) has been writing.
ComicBook.com reports Sebastian revealed his expectations for the series at a recent comic convention. You can read what he had to say below:
“I think it’s time for Bucky to go out there and have an identity outside of the circumstances that we’ve met him through,” Stan said. “So, I don’t know, he might do all kinds of things. He might even go on a date. I don’t know. Scary world out there, you know? Apps, things like that. I don’t know what he’s gonna do. I can’t see him on an iPhone…I think it’s gonna be a lot of dealing with Anthony’s character and Anthony himself which is always another character.”
Sebastian also revealed the series would begin filming in October, though he did not give an exact date. The series will reportedly film in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Winter Soldier actor also praised his co-star, Anthony Mackie, saying:
“I have a blast working with Anthony. It’s very funny half the time. It’s just gonna be a lot of that move your seat up thing, I’m gonna tell him that if we’re gonna be in the car, I’m gonna be in the passenger’s seat and he’s gonna be in the back, or I should be in the driver’s seat.”
