According to reports, filming for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is set to resume in the near future. In an interview on The Tonight Show, star Anthony Mackie revealed there was “very little stuff to do.” While an official date to return to filming hasn’t been announced yet, recent rumours have suggested it could be towards the end of July.

In another interview, this time with Variety’s Actors on Actors, Mackie spoke to Daveed Diggs about his experience filming the upcoming Disney+ series. There have been suggestions that Marvel Studios is treating its streaming series like a movie, and the actor’s comments confirmed the fact:

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.

Mackie also noted the effort being put in by the whole crew to make the show:

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 still hasn’t received a concrete release date, although it is expected to release later this year. In the interview with Variety, Mackie once again hinted that filming will resume soon, stating “knock on wood, we’ll be going back soon.”
