The premiere of Marvel Cinematic Universe and Disney+ series collapse: The Falcon and The Winter Soldier has now been pushed to debut next year due to the effect of the health pandemic. The filming has officially resumed in Atlanta, supposedly coming closer to completion. And to those who are waiting for the MCU’s newest adventure, the Disney+ series has revealed a set of photos and teased some surprising scenes that can’t disappoint fans. Especially, the return of the villain Baron Zemo has been revealed.
The new release date
The series is confirmed to premiere next year, 2021 instead of late in August 2020, with WandaVision coming first in 2020. The final stages of production are hinted to finish, as the filming has already shifted to Prague.
New set photos of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier
Fandíme Filmu, a Czech Republic website, posted new set photos which leaked the location where the protagonists would show up.
According to The Direct, the outlet also revealed that Prague would feature some places like an Arabic street or kind of a market in Middle Eastern:
“Shooting in Prague started few days ago. Filmmakers are using some of the same locations they were using before the start of the pandemic and they are adding some more. We were able to learn that Prague will be representing an unknown Middle Eastern location. One Prague location has been dressed as an arabic street or some kind of market.”
Additionally, as a Czech street is “dressed as a Latvian street”, the production could spot a “Latvian car back in March” and thus, it is unveiled that Latvia will appear in some form.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier cast
This series involves familiar faces of the Marvel Cinematic Universe like Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon and Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier.
Others to show up in the series include Emily VanCamp and Daniel Brühl as Sharon Carter and Helmut Zemo respectively, who were last seen in Captain America: Civil War (2016).
Meanwhile, Wyatt Russell debuts in the Marvel Studios, portraying Agent John Walker beside the newcomers Adepero Oduye, Desmond Chiam, Miki Ishikawa, Noah Mills, and Carl Lumbly.
Recently, for this series, the teaser has also revealed that Daniel Brühl will also be back as his Captain America: Civil War baddie Baron Zemo.
Thanks to some behind-the-scenes photos, fans of the Falcon and the Winter Soldier movie are more expected to see action-packed encounters with the return of other threat-Batroc.
Another Captain America villain- Batroc also returns in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier
Some potential spoilers from the teaser
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier series is generally known with the return of characters from past Captain America films, following the 2019 blockbuster “Avengers: Endgame”. At the end of Endgame, Steve Rogers passed his shield on to Sam. Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes team up to face new and returning threats.
And with the teaser Disney dropped, Marvel Cinematic Universe described the film as a “global adventure that tests their abilities – and their patience”. We can realize the return of the villain Baron Zemo, this time wearing his mask from the comics.
Supposedly, Sam won’t be Captain America yet in this series while in November 2019, Wyatt Russell was announced to play John Walker (known as Super-Patriot). With the appearance in a Captain America-esque suit, there is a supposition that the US government intends to replace Captain America with one of their own. So, who knows whether they are in battles of getting the title Captain America!
However, this series is not going to get rid of only action moments but it tries to explore more in terms of emotions. “We can create the same exciting high-end action sequences but then in between those set pieces, we get to dive deeper into the character beats,” says Zoie Nagelhout, supervising producer of the show.
In shorts, whatever direction Marvel Studios is moving towards, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier would be completely different by the way it is shot. Mackie claimed with his reveal: “I think people are going to be surprised by how in-depth and evolved the characters become by having six to eight hours to them, instead of just two.” So, the different formats, the return of many major villains, and the “global adventure”, all things combined make The Falcon and The Winter Soldier movie worth waiting than ever!
