The Falcon And The Winter Soldier is one of the most anticipated shows of the year, Marvel fans are stoked! Every trailer we’ve seen has been fantastic and we can definitely expect a good time! Seeing The Falcon and The Winter Soldier play off of each other will be hilarious, I’m sure. Not to mention, by the end of it we’ll have our official new Captain America! Okay, so it’s probably going to be Sam Wilson, but there ain’t nothing wrong with that! There was a lot of debate over WandaVision’s runtime. Now the debate has started all over again, especially since one of the actors said to expect an “8-hour movie.” Could Falcon And Winter Soldier truly, with all episodes, be 8 hours long? What should we set our runtime expectations to!?
So, we probably shouldn’t expect 8 hours spread across six episodes. That was always pretty unrealistic I think, but I’m sure it’ll come somewhat close! Kevin Feige actually spoke about it recently with SciFiNow+ and gave us very few details.
“Not quite eight hours, but yes. It all comes down to the storytelling. I guess the short answer is we don’t distinguish it too much. The bar is set high for the features and for the series, and we try to exceed that bar every time. Obviously, the week-to-week unveiling gives us opportunities, as we’re now seeing with WandaVision for sure. But we’re building the shows to be experienced that way, the way we build our features to be experienced in a run, and sometimes they have tags that hint at the future. It’s fun to be able to do that week-to-week in series programming. But other than that, it’s very much the same high bar that we try to set for ourselves and want to meet the expectations that the audience has when they go to a theatre to see one of our films or when they now turn on Disney+.” were his exact words!
It sounds like he’s quite happy with how these MCU shows are turning out, and everyone is enjoying delving deeper into the MCU! At least now we have our runtime expectations set!
