'The Falcon and The Winter Soldier': Sebastian Stan has no clue when the series will resume filming
Marvel has suspended the production of all of their shows, thanks to the pandemic
Sebastian Stan said he doesn't know when filming for the Disney+ series, 'The Falcon and The Winter Soldier' will resume again.
The 37-year old who plays Bucky Barnes/ Winter Soldier said he didn't know when he or the rest of the cast and crew would be able to get back on sets. "It's not really at the forefront of my mind. You know, we were lucky to get far enough. We haven't finished. The plan is to go back whenever we can, whenever that might be, to finish. Whenever we can turn this thing around and people can get back together, we can pick back up, but I just don't know at this point," he told TV Guide.
Following the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus, Marvel has suspended the production of all of their shows as the pandemic status has risen in the country. 'The Falcon and The Winter Soldier' was set to debut this August, but this delay would mean we wouldn't be seeing it at least till the end of the year.
Earlier this year, Marvel's TV spot during the Super Bowl LIV saw a sneak peek of the action the Anthony Mackie and Stan-starring series would offer. Sam Wilson/Falcon's (Anthony Mackie) new costume, Daniel Bruhl's Helmut Zemo, Sharon Carter/ Agent 13 (Emily Vancamp) and Wyatt Russell's US Agent were all a glimpse.
The official synopsis reads: "Following the events of 'Avengers: Endgame', Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) team up in a global adventure that tests their abilities —and their patience—in Marvel Studios' 'The Falcon and The Winter Soldier'." The all-new series is directed by Kari Skogland. Malcolm Spellman comes in as the head writer.
Last year, in an interview with Cinemablend, Stan explained that it was time for his character to explore the world. In all his MCU appearances, Bucky was shown as a howling commando from Cap's team who was later brainwashed by HYDRA and apart from grappling with some of Thanos's army in 'Infinity War' and 'Endgame', he didn't really get a glimpse of the outside world.
"I think it’s time for Bucky to go out there and to have an identity outside of the circumstances that we met him through. So I don’t know, I think he can do all kinds of things he might even go on a date. I know its a scary world out there… I don’t know what he’s going to do. I can’t see him with an iPhone."
'The Falcon and The Winter Soldier' is yet to officially confirm their date of resuming production and release. At this moment, we're in for a bit of a wait.
