One of this year’s most anticipated Disney+ shows is Marvel Studios “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” and is currently due to arrive on the streaming platform in August, however much like with everything right now, it’s possible that it will be delayed due to the shutdown of filming.
This weekend, Falcon actor Anthony Mackie spoke with Daveed Diggs from Variety‘s Actors on Actors. During the interview, he spoke about the upcoming Marvel show, talking about the shutdown, the budget and more.
“We were in Europe, and everything got crazy in Europe first. So they shut us down two weeks before the U.S. shutdown. It was really amazing just because I feel like we’re the first Marvel show or movie that had budget constraints. And that was always my [experience], ‘It’s Marvel, we could shoot forever.’ And they’re like, ‘Nah.’ So it was a very different experience from the rest of the movies. But at the same time, it was a lot of fun.
Those movies are like summer camp. And this show, it was no different. It was the same group of people, coming together to make it work. And so the stunt stuff — everything is just on another level. Every show, every movie, they just push it — they push the envelope so much. So hopefully, knock on wood, we’ll be going back soon.
“The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” will also look like a Marvel movie. “We’re shooting it exactly like a movie,” “Everybody who had worked on TV before was like, ‘I’ve never worked on a TV show like this.’ The way in which we were shooting, it feels exactly like we were shooting the movie cut up into the show. So instead of a two-hour movie, a six or eight-hour movie.”

With such a huge budget, this series has a lot to prove, since it will be the first Marvel Studios TV show and the first Marvel Disney+ exclusive. After years of Marvel shows not being interconnected with the larger MCU, it looks like things are about to change and hopefully it won’t be too long till we see it.
