Disney has officially confirmed a Falcon & Winter Soldier series is in the works for Disney+ and revealed the first logo. Marvel Studios has dominated the big screen over the last eleven years, but now that they're moving into Phase 4, they're also expanding their reach to the small screen. Thanks to Disney's own streaming service, Marvel Studios is set to make TV shows based around characters who haven't received enough spotlight already.
One of these series has long been rumored to be a team up series between Sam Wilson aka Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes aka Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). It was previously reported that a showrunner had been found for the series, but Disney and Marvel had yet to confirm that the series was happening. They have previously only confirmed that a Tom Hiddleston led Loki series is on the way.
During Walt Disney Studios' investor meeting today focused on the upcoming launch of their streaming service, Disney+, the Falcon & Winter Soldier series was finally confirmed. The news came as Disney showed off a version of the service, which featured the first logo for Falcon & Winter Soldier on the platform. Winter Soldier actor Sebastian Stan posted the logo to his Instagram, check it out below:
Now that Falcon & Winter Soldier is confirmed to be on the way, fans will be patiently waiting to get more details on what it will contain and when it could take place. Both characters are currently victims of Thanos' snap in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it is expected that both will be brought back to life by the end of Avengers: Endgame. It has previously been theorized that the series could potentially serve as them figuring out who can take on the Captain America mantle next. That's not confirmed at this point, but Feige has indicated that these shows will have a lasting impact on the future of the MCU - so picking the next Cap would do just that.
With Disney already highlighting Falcon & Winter Soldier, it could potentially be one of the first live-action shows from Marvel Studios to arrive on Disney+. There has yet to be any news on production gearing up, much less beginning, and there has been no promise so far that it will be available when Disney+ launches. With an additional series focused on Scarlet Witch and Vision also in development, this will likely be just one of many new pieces of MCU content to arrive on the streaming service.
