Cast your mind back to this time last year, and the Marvel Studios machine was in full flow with multiple projects filming. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was originally scheduled to be Marvel’s debut release on Disney+ in the late summer and things were looking rosy for the MCU.
By the end of March, however, things were looking a lot different. Coronavirus cases were rapidly climbing all over the world. As a result, many countries were forced to impose lockdowns. At that time, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was around halfway through filming the series, before production came to an abrupt halt. When production resumed a few months later, cast and crew were forced to work in new ways.
In a recent interview with Charles Murphy of Murphy’s Multiverse, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier director, Kari Skogland, was asked if anything good came out of production being paused. You can read her response below:
With less than a week to go until The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s first episode premieres on Disney+, we won’t have long to wait to see first hand if the downtime helped to improve the series. Early impressions from the first episode have so far been positive, with many praising the series’ action and drama.
