The team-up fans have been waiting for is coming to fruition. According to Variety, a Falcon-Winter Soldier series is in the works at the Disney streaming service.
During the events of Captain America: Civil War, Sam Wilson, and Bucky Barnes were frenemies in the best possible way. The banter between Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan was off the charts, which led fans to begin to petition for a team-up of the two iconic characters. At the time, a movie featuring the two seemed too far-fetched, but with the streaming service now in play, a show appears a logical replacement.
Stan and Mackie first appeared in the Captain America movie trilogy before spinning off into the larger MCU. Funny enough, both characters met an untimely end at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, so as with most of the MCU, we will have to wait until Avengers 4 to understand how the universe will shape up.
Many assumed that one of these actors would eventually take over the mantle of Captain America for Chris Evans. That could still be the case, although, it may be further down the line as this series will likely take some time to develop.
Along with the announcement, Variety reports that Empire writer Malcolm Spellman has been tapped to write the series, which joins Scarlet Witch and Loki as current MCU shows in development at the service.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is set to oversee these series which will bring MCU characters to the small screen. They will run somewhere around six to eight episodes and have larger budgets than their Netflix counterparts. The actors who have portrayed the characters in the movies are expected to return to reprise their roles.
