Long-time MCU comic book fans are in for a treat as they are about to rewarded sticking with MCU all this while even though it has an underlying Disney horror to it.
Fans are aching to see the lives of Avengers who remain standing, after the sad and untimely death of Tony Stark and Rogers putting down the shield once and for all. I’m glad they chose these heroes instead because personally I’m not a fan of Black Panther whereas Black Widow is no more with us.
Falcon – Anthony Mackie has inherited the shield, but we are left to see him follow in the footsteps – a legacy left behind by Captain America- The First Avenger.
Although a lot of fans would have liked to see Bucky take the Adamantium mantle, it may not have been the wisest choice because he is nowhere near as fresh as picking up Mjolnir. I cling to see his dark side in the show still. He’s always been a bad-ass with his attitude. Falcon does have bigger shoes to fill.
Likely Release Date
Marvel Studios announced ‘WandaVision,’ another series that is in works simultaneously along Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Ten episodes in the entry for each makes comic books come alive than ever. Single movies felt more like a jumbo comic-book, following only one arc. Whereas, a series around it makes it more of proper comic issue. Just hope they don’t end up chasing only one villain throughout the season, as with Marvel’s Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Punisher, even though they improvised season 2 onward.
WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier both are set to release in 2020 though it is hard to say which one will come first. Since Falcon and the Winter Soldier was announced earlier, we could place our bets on it for it to be the first MCU t.v. Release, it would even set a better tone for upcoming MCU projects.
Falcon and The Winter Soldier Cast and Production
Kari Skogland will direct the series with Spellman as the head writer. Beware you are about to put in a spell. Former hockey player and a Canadian actress Wyatt Russel and Emily VanCamp are the new supporting cast.
Other Marvel Projects
In addition to Wanda and FAW, Doctor Strange and Hawkeye are the next Mind Blockbusters in Marvel Cinematic Universe to release on Diney+, the streaming services of Disney, thus may not appear on Netflix. This also puts the fate of the team of Defenders, Punisher and Jessica Jones in the dark. The respective shows sadly might get canceled.
