After debuting the logo at the Disney+ Investor day, there hasn’t been much news about The Falcon and The Winter Soldier…until now.
Deadline is reporting today that Kari Skogland will direct the entirety for the six-episode miniseries that will air in August of 2020 on Disney+. Even cooler, they say that both Daniel Bruhl and Emily Van Camp are in talks to return in the mini-series.
The piece also confirms previous rumors that the mini-series will deal with Falcon accepting the mantle of Captain America after being given the shield at the end of Avengers: Endgame. Previous rumors about the plot say it could involve a government-sanctioned who may or may not be John Walker (or based on him). Things go a little crazy when an attempt to recreate the Super Soldier Serum causes his mind to break down and Falcon and Winter Soldier have to save the day, leading to Sam becoming the new Cap.
We’re likely to learn more about The Falcon and The Winter Solider this summer.
