Not a lot is known about the show other than the fact that the mantle of Captain America has been passed to Mackie’s Falcon character, and the consequences of that decision will also be seen.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was set to be available on + in August but production had to be pushed further to March due to the pandemic. Now, a new date hasn’t been revealed but Anthony Mackie recently spoke about the series.

During an actor-on-actor conversation with Daveed Diggs for Variety, Mackie compared the shooting process to summer boot camp, stating how much fun it was to work with the entire cast and crew.

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.”

Speaking further, he said:

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 revealed what it was like filming the series right up until the production shutdown in March 2020.

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.”
