Marvel Studios has released a new poster featuring Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) as Captain America in Disney+ series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. All six episodes, including the finale showcasing Sam’s official debut with the iconic shield, are now streaming exclusively on Disney+.
The image reveal (view the full poster by scrolling down) comes just days after word broke that a fourth Captain America movie is in development. Malcolm Spellman, who is the head writer and creator of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, will co-write the script with Dalan Musson, a staff writer on the series.
Chris Evans is not expected to return for the next installment now that Mackie has officially taken over the role via the Marvel Studios series. Evans played Captain America in the first three movies, as well as in the four Avengers films.
No director is attacked to the fourth Captain America movie yet and Marvel Studios is naturally still keeping things under wraps.
Consisting of six episodes, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier stars Mackie as The Falcon and Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier. The pair, who came together in the final moments of Avengers: Endgame, team up on a global adventure that tests their abilities – and their patience.
Directed by Kari Skogland, the series also stars Daniel Brühl as Zemo, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, and Wyatt Russell as John Walker.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier follows Marvel Studios first series created for Disney+, WandaVision. The series stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff, Paul Bettany as Vision, Kathryn Hahn as Agnes, and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, who was introduced to audiences in Captain Marvel.
Kat Dennings reprises her role in WandaVision as Darcy from Thor and Thor: The Dark World, and Randall Park reprises his role as Jimmy Woo from Ant-Man and The Wasp.
Marvel Studios’ WandaVision is a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision — two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives — begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
Marvel Studios previously shared plans for the expansion and future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, revealing details about upcoming content for Disney+.
Three new series for Disney+ were revealed, including the Samuel L. Jackson-starrer Secret Invasion, Ironheart with Dominique Thorne as a genius inventor, and Armor Wars, starring Don Cheadle as James Rhodes aka War Machine who faces Tony Stark’s worst fears.
These will join the studios robust lineup of Disney+ titles including WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and Loki. The latter series will debut on the streaming service on June 11, 2021.
Also coming are the animated series What If…?; Ms. Marvel; Hawkeye, with Hailee Steinfeld joining Jeremy Renner in the series; She-Hulk, starring Tatiana Maslany in the title role alongside co-stars Mark Ruffalo and Tim Roth; and Moon Knight.
Rounding out the Disney+ announcements were the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special and a series of original shorts, I Am Groot, featuring everyone’s favorite baby tree.
