Having originally been due to premiere on Disney+ last month, it’s now been confirmed that Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has been pushed back to next year.
Courtesy of ComingSoon, Disney+ has updated the official information for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier to list it as “coming 2021”. An exact premiere date has yet to be announced, but it’s expected that the Antony Mackie and Sebastian Stan-starrer will arrive at some point in the first half of ’21.
As a result of this change, that means that the first of Marvel Studios’ original series to land on Disney+ will be this December’s arrival of WandaVision – which over the weekend served up a truly phenomenal trailer.
In The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Mackie and Stan will be reprising their respective roles from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Serving as the main villain of the piece will be Daniel Bruhl back in his Captain America: Civil War role of Helmut Zemo, while Emily VanVamp is back as Sharon Carter and Georges St-Pierre has recently been revealed to be picking up his Batroc role from the opening moments of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Elsewhere, Wyatt Russell is to play John Walker, aka US Agent, and there are unknown roles for Miki Ishikawa, Carl Lumbly, Noah Mills, and Desmon Chiam.
