The Disney+ streaming service is one of the most exciting TV and movie ventures to hit the internet in a while, and it's set to launch on November 12. Disney+ will feature content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic, and the service will offer original content alongside TV and movies from the The Walt Disney Studios stable.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is one of the original shows that will premiere on Disney+, and fans are eager to learn about the new Marvel show. Here's what you need to know about The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
What is The Falcon and The Winter Soldier about?
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be a live-action series following Sam Wilson (aka Falcon) and Bucky Barnes (aka the Winter Soldier). The two are both friends of Steve Rogers—Captain America—and they've appeared together in films like Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Civil War, and Avengers: Infinity War. While the characters have clashed in the past, the duo are friendly now—both on and off the screen.
Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan appeared alongside Marvel chief Kevin Feige at 2019's San Diego Comic Con, where they took some questions for a moderator (mostly just joking around, but making clear that the show will follow Bucky and Sam in the aftermath of Endgame). It was here that Feige also announced that Daniel Bruhl would be returning to play Baron Zemo, who he previously played as the villain in Captain America: Civil War.
Brühl took to Instasgram to share the first glimpse of his character's return, including the first photo of Baron Zemo with his mask on, like in the comics (in Civil War, his character purpose was to be an entirely human villain—he went the entire film unmasked).
Who's in the cast of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier?
Our Men's Health July/August cover star, Anthony Mackie, will reprise his role as Falcon, and Sebastian Stan will return as the Winter Soldier. Deadline reports that Daniel Bruhl and Emily Van Camp will also join the cast.
Bruhl appeared in Captain America: Civil War as Helmut Zemo, a super villain who pitted Iron Man and Captain America against each other. Van Camp played Sharon Carter in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War. Carter is also known as S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Agent 13. Additionally, she's Peggy Carter's great-niece, which is why no one understands why she and Captain America kissed during Civil War...but I digress.
When will The Falcon and The Winter Soldier premiere?
Feige announced at San Diego Comic Con that The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will premiere on Disney+ in 'Fall 2020'. As ComicBook.com reports, Sebastian Stan confirmed that filming for the series will begin in October 2019. Some outlets have reported that the show will be a limited series or a miniseries, but Disney and Marvel haven't confirmed that.
