Disney+ Delay The Falcon And The Winter Soldier Release
The Coronavirus pandemic has dealt another blow to comic book fans. The Falcon And The Winter Soldier, which was supposed to kickstart Disney’s line of Marvel TV Series on Disney+, is delayed.
The pandemic forced the studios to pause production of The Falcon And The Winter Soldier back in May. As of now, there are no updates on the new release date, but we can expect an update soon.
The Falcon And The Winter Soldier was going to pick up from where Avengers: Endgame finished in the MCU. We’re talking about the time when Captain America Steve Rogers, after living a life of retirement, gave his coveted shield to the Falcon, Sam Wilson. However, that is about all that we know about the upcoming Disney+ series.
This is because we haven’t yet seen a proper trailer of the series. However, there was a brief teaser during the Super Bowl, which gave us a brief look at The Falcon And The Winter Soldier, WandaVision, and Loki. In it, Sam Wilson was practicing using Captain America’s shield, and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) reunited with Zemo (Daniel Brühl), the main antagonist in Captain America: Civil War back in 2016. Sadly, this delay will have an effect on other upcoming Marvel TV Series.
What does ‘The Falcon And The Winter Soldier’s‘ delay mean for the other shows?
Delays were expected, but it still is disappointing for fans. But, other Marvel shows and movies are facing similar delays. Black Widow and The Eternals also faced delays, with Black Widow’s release moved from May 1st to November 6th and The Eternals moved from November 6th to February 12th, 2021. For now, it appears that Wanda Vision is still on schedule for release in December 2020, but it could very well be impacted.
Disney is one of many production studios in Hollywood who are facing delays. And it all depends on when will it be safe to come back to work. However, there is still hope for some fanbases, namely the Star Wars fan base. This is because The Mandalorian season 2 is still on schedule for release in October. Therefore, there may still be hope.
