With Falcon and the Winter Soldier getting their own team-up miniseries as part of the impending Disney+ streaming service, now comes news of a couple of names who may be joining these heroes in the show.
Via Deadline, it’s being reported that Daniel Bruhl and Emily VanCamp are in talks to join the six-episode offering. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Bruhl played Helmut Zemo in Captain America: Civil War, while VanCamp has appeared as Sharon Carter – aka Agent 13 – in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War.
To get you up to speed, the MCU’s Helmut Zemo is a Sokovian terrorist who managed to turn the Avengers against each other. In the comics, Baron Zemo is a longstanding foe of Captain America and then later Falcon and the Winter Soldier. As for Agent 13, Sharon Carter is the niece of Peggy Carter and is a comic book love interest of Cap’s and also one of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s finest agents.
Additionally, The Handmaid’s Tale’s Kari Skogland has signed on to direct all six episodes of Falcon and the Winter Soldier, with the plan being for the miniseries to premiere in August 2020.
The current belief is that Falcon and the Winter Soldier will follow on from what we saw towards the end of the stunning Avengers: Endgame. Just in case for some reason you’ve yet to check out the truly magnificent Endgame, we won’t go into any further details for fear of spoilers.
Expect more on Falcon and the Winter Soldier as it continues to develop.
