Not much is known of the story for the upcoming Disney+ production of Falcon & Winter Soldier. The only official synopsis we have so far is vague at best:
Besides the above two actors, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, Daniel Brühl reprising his role as Baron Helmut Zemo, and Wyatt Russell as John Walker / U.S. Agent are all confirmed. Desmond Chiam, Miki Ishikawa, and Carl Lumbly have also been cast in unconfirmed roles.
Thanks to Charles Murphy at MurphysMultiverse, we have images of the set. We now get confirmation of at least some of the setting of the series. And based on these images that setting is none other than the city of Madripoor.
Madripoor is a fictional island that is located in southern Asia and is modeled on Singapore. The capital city of Madripoor consists of Hightown and Lowtown. These serve to represent the extreme social inequality of the City. The city is described as “a place for the very rich and the very poor”. It was once a haven for pirates and still runs outside the governance of any other countries making it an attractive hideout for criminals.
The City was first seen in New Mutants and featured heavily in the X-Men comics. It was also “mentioned” in a top-secret list of Nick Fury’s secret bases. This was revealed by Jonathon Hickman, who worked on Secret Warriors between 2009 and 2011. The List is seen in the image below.
The above mentions Stinger as the name of the Madripoor safe house. From the set images Murphy revealed it appears that this location is going to be Stingers Strip House. This is a huge reveal but the other images are just as teasing. They reveal that the Brass Monkey Saloon will also be a location.
With this being such a huge location in the X-Men franchise this may just be an Easter Egg of things to come from the Marvel-Fox contract as they work on introducing the X-Men or the Secret Warriors. But I am sure like me, you can’t wait to find out.
We have had no news on the release of this being pushed back like the other Marvel productions. Hopefully, we will get to see this on Disney+ in August as planned.
In the meantime please enjoy the images below supplied by MurphysMultiverse.
