'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier' star Anthony Mackie is teasing the upcoming Disney+ Marvel series. Consider us intrigued.
The show is one of many superhero spin-offs that are currently in the works for the streaming service. 'Wandavision' is expected to drop in December 2020 while 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier' is scheduled to arrive on Disney+ in August.
Mind you, its arrival will likely be delayed as production was forced to come to a halt back in March.
Mackie described to Variety: "We were in Europe, and everything got crazy in Europe first.
"So they shut us down two weeks before the U.S. shutdown. It was really amazing just because I feel like we’re the first Marvel show or movie that had budget constraints.
"And that was always my [experience], ‘It’s Marvel, we could shoot forever.’ And they’re like, ‘Nah.’ So it was a very different experience from the rest of the movies. But at the same time, it was a lot of fun."
Regarding resuming filming, he added: "Hopefully, knock on wood, we’ll be going back soon."
Even more exciting is how Mackie said the series will play with continuity like "a movie". So fans of the MCU's 23 movies so far should be delighted.
The actor said: "We’re shooting it exactly like a movie.
"Everybody who had worked on TV before was like, ‘I’ve never worked on a TV show like this.’
"The way in which we were shooting, it feels exactly like we were shooting the movie cut up into the show. So instead of a two-hour movie, a six or eight-hour movie."
As for the next MCU movie to hit cinemas, that will be 'Black Widow' in late October.
