Kevin Feige Talks The Falcon & Winter Soldier

There’s not long to wait before Anthony Mackie and Sebastien Stan return to their respective roles for the highly-anticipated Disney+ series The Falcon & The Winter Soldier. The series kicks-off on March 19, and if WandaVision is anything to go by, we are in for some more surprises when Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes reunite.

Speaking about the forthcoming series, Marvel boss Kevin Feige had this to say;

“Anthony Mackie and Sebastien Stan are spectacular actors which we felt we had to explore their stories and their backstories, or personal stories, enough as Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes. So it was always the thought we’d like to learn more about both of them. In the little interactions they had with each other in Winter Soldier and Civil War … as friends of a mutual best friend in Captain America. We thought we’d have a fun dynamic, if we ever had that opportunity, we’d watch a whole show with the two of them and Disney+ gives us that opportunity.”

Initially, WandaVision was confirmed as being six episodes long, but we ended up with nine episodes of assorted length, but the total running time will still equal the original six-hour story. Feige revealed that the same is true for The Falcon & The Winter Soldier, and pointed out the obvious fact that these shows are not cheap to produce.

“Six hours is what we landed on as the best way to tell our story. Six hours, whether it’s six episodes, or nine shorter episodes like WandaVision. The shows aren’t inexpensive, so the per-episode cost is very high and to get that bar I was talking about.”

WandaVision has set the bar very high by delivering surprises cameos, a compelling storyline, and a genuinely unexpected vibe where anything can happen. The Falcon & The Winter Soldier starts its weekly run on Disney+ on March 19.
