Originally slated for release on Disney+ this August, Marvel‘s upcoming TV series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has now been officially delayed. The push-back for its release date, as expected, is mostly due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which has forced production to be suspended back in May. Unfortunately for Marvel fans, Disney hasn’t offered a new release date just yet, but the company hopes to provide updates as soon as possible.
The delay comes after the show was forced to pause production back in May because of the pandemic, The Verge has confirmed. Disney does not have a new premiere date for the show, but it’s hoping to share updates on it soon. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was set to pick up where Avengers: Endgame ended. Steve Rogers’ Captain America seems to have essentially retired after living a different life in an alternate timeline, and Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) picks up the shield in his place.
“We were in Europe, and everything got crazy in Europe first,” Mackie said. “So they shut us down two weeks before the U.S. shutdown. It was really amazing just because I feel like we’re the first Marvel show or movie that had budget constraints. And that was always my [experience], ‘It’s Marvel, we could shoot forever.’ And they’re like, ‘Nah.’ So it was a very different experience from the rest of the movies. But at the same time, it was a lot of fun. In addition, if you are in need of Cheap Disney Plus VIP Accounts, you can visit our website z2u.com.
Unfortunately for Marvel fans, this is just the latest in a series of delays. Upcoming Marvel movies Black Widow and The Eternals both saw their theatrical releases delayed. It remains unclear if Disney will delay WandaVision as well.
Though Falcon & The Winter Soldier will no longer bow in August, Disney+ is on track for an October release for The Mandalorian season two, which had already completed filming when the coronavirus pandemic hit. Marvel Studios has multiple shows in the works for Disney+, including WandaVision, starring Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen; Tom Hiddleston’s Loki; and Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye.
