Disney+ Makes It Official, The Falcon And The Winter Soldier Isn’t Coming In August

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down production, the spiritual sequel to Avengers: Endgame following Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes had problems. An earthquake in Puerto Rico delayed planned filming at the start of the year, and they are hoping to return to filming in Atlanta and Europe soon. Still, with the shutdown, every savvy fan expected the news we got this week. Disney+ revealed their upcoming slate of releases for August and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier isn’t on it. Honestly, with filming still left to do, no one should have expected that it would be.

This is an important part of Phase 4 of the MCU, because this series will ostensibly establish the next Captain America. Rumors, leaks, and educated guesses from set photos suggest that the US government doesn’t want Sam Wilson to be Captain America. Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan reprise their roles, and the series will also feature Captain America: Civil War villain Daniel Brühl’s (Baron) Helmut Zemo. There are a lot of dangling threads from the Captain America story that this series will wrap up. Also, it’s worth saying, that we really don’t know what direction the Marvel Universe will go after the Infinity Saga.

Again, delving into the realm of rumor, the Marvel Studios Disney+ series meant to debut second, WandaVision, is reportedly still on track for an early 2021 release. There were rumors that it would be bumped up to fall of 2020, perhaps after the second season of The Mandalorian. Now, it seems that series will debut when it was supposed to, in early 2021. This could suggest filming is done or that they are optimistic it will be completed in time to finish post-production on the series.

Are you disappointed that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier won’t debut in August on Disney+? Let us know in the comments where you hope the story goes.
