The Falcon and The Winter Soldier released its first trailer and excitement is continuing to build for the show. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige teased the show and all of the new offerings for the Marvel universe.
“Over the course of the 23 films, we’ve pulled together a roster of amazing actors and talented filmmakers, and we’re excited to continue to work with these individuals to tell new, long-form stories in ways that we’ve never done before,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said during an unveiling of the Disney+ streaming service. “These shows will be on the same level of quality that you’ve come to expect from Marvel Studios, and we’ll be taking advantage of that creative freedom that Disney+ offers exploring the MCU, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with our favorite characters over multiple episodes.”
“These will be both new and continuing stories, and one of the things we’re most excited about is that these will be major storylines set in the MCU with ramifications that will be felt both through the other Disney+ series we’re producing and our features on the big screen.”
With this announcement, we got a great look at the new costumes for the show.
In an earlier interview, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier writer Derek Kolstad kept things close to the vest on the future Disney+ show but still was able to drop a pretty crazy clue that familiar faces from the early days of the Marvel Cinematic Universe making a return.
During the Script Apart Podcast, Kolstad said, “What I will say is that there are characters from the earliest Marvel movies that are coming back. We’re layering them in and reinventing them in a way that’s gonna shift the storytelling structure. It’s f**king awesome.”
Kolstad was on the podcast to discuss his original screenplay for John Wick. There, he teased a little of what’s in store in Falcon And The Winter Soldier. While it’s known that Daniel Brühl’s Zemo is returning – as is The Winter Soldier’s Batroc – could that mention of the “earliest Marvel movies mean we’ll see some Phase 1 characters return too?
“I’m very proud of and honoured by what it came to be,” he said. “Here’s what I’ll say: growing up, everyone would give someone like Robin shit. But Robin’s pretty badass, and became pretty badass in the comics. [We’re] taking secondary characters and putting them in the primary roles, and [as a result] they’re cooler. They’re more interesting. There’s more humanity, more longing, more suffering, and coming to grips with who and what they are.”
