Disney+ continues to make waves in streaming TV and now more details have been revealed about one of their anticipated Marvel series on with Anthony Mackie, who has long played Falcon in the MCU saying the upcoming ‘Falcon & Winter Soldier’ series is going for a movie-level vibe. The series will debut in August.
“We’re shooting it exactly like a movie,” he said in Variety’s ‘Actors on Actors’. “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.”
Now that’s what I am talking about! There have been plenty of good Marvel series on Netflix but as they make the jump to their new platform with Disney, it’s relief to hear the new wave of shows could meet the lofty expectations that the MCU has created now on the small screen.
