More information has surfaced about the Falcon and Winter Soldier miniseries that Marvel is working on.
Falcon and Winter Soldier are played by Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Their series takes place after the events of 'Avengers: Endgame' and is one of several projects that will act as a spinoff to the movie epic.
Titled 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier', we now know that the show will consist of six episodes. According to Deadline, Kari Skogland is directing.
Skogland is an Emmy-nominated and BAFTA-winning director, showrunner and CEO. She is a seasoned television director and has helmed episodes of 'The Handmaid’s Tale'. Other credits of hers include 'The Borgias', 'Penny Dreadful', 'Boardwalk Empire', 'The Killing', 'The Walking Dead', 'Vikings', 'Power', 'The Americans', 'House of Cards' and 'The Punisher'.
Malcolm Spellman ('Empire') has been writing the series.
Sources say that 'Captain America: Civil War's Daniel Bruhl and Emily Van Camp are also in talks to join.
Bruhl played Zemo in 'Civil War', and was responsible for driving a wedge between Captain America and Iron Man. Their feud would carry into later Avengers films.
Zemo also murdered Black Panther’s father.
Emily VanCamp meanwhile played Sharon Carter - the great niece of Peggy Carter - in 'Winter Soldier' and 'Civil War.' She and Captain America shared a kiss but Steve couldn't let go of his true love, Peggy.
'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier' will air in August 2020. No plot details have emerged just yet.
