While announcing the exciting plans for phase four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at San Diego’s Comic-Con on Saturday, Kevin Feige brought out stars Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie to talk more about their upcoming Disney+ series, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. The show takes place in the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame where Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) passed off his shield to his friend, the Falcon.
Feige unveiled the logo for the series and exclusive video footage for fans in Hall H. It was reported in May that Daniel Brühl would reprise his role as the villain Zemo in the series. Zemo was an integral part of the conflict between Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America in Captain America: Civil War. The video showed Bruhl donning his character.
“I can’t imagine what you all must be thinking,” said Brühl’s Zemo. “A villain seizes control of the panel and you expect me to threaten some unspeakable act of violence. I simply wanted to say hello to some old friends. Gentlemen, I’ll be seeing you very soon.”
In an interview with MTV News, Mackie revealed that he had a new Captain America suit. “I just had my first fitting,” Mackie said. “It looks really good.”
Directed by Kari Skogland, Mackie’s Falcon and Stan’s Winter Soldier had infectious chemistry on-screen and off. This will be Mackie’s first feat in portraying the iconic hero that was so loved by fans of the MCU.
Feige’s plans for Marvel shows on Disney+ is to continue development and growth for the MCU.
“Campfires can be different: We are going to tell stories for the streaming service that we wouldn’t be able to tell in a theatrical experience — a longer-form narrative, that’s what comics are, it’s about as longform a narrative as exists,” explained Feige. “But also maintaining that theatrical experience, which is our bread and butter, and the lines around the block, if you’re lucky.”
Filming for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier begins in October. The series will be released in 2020 on Disney+.
