Okay, just yesterday (was it yesterday?) Marvel dropped the official trailer for one of its most anticipated series, WandaVision and I’m one of the many people who are excited. While still no official release date, the series is expected to premiere on the streaming site, Disney + this December.
So now begs the question, what happens to the other Marvel series that were supposed to be released? Well unfortunately, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, is delayed to 2021, making a rough year for Marvel fans a little bit rougher.
I mean it’s fine but a very interesting marketing choice because The Falcon and the Winter Soldier looks like the kind of series that will definitely or undoubtedly do well after the premiere and will set more excitement for the other Marvel series that will come soon.
But Disney+ and Marvel went ahead and chose WandaVision as the first of the Marvel series lineup to premiere. Not saying it won’t do well, it most likely will but commercial wise, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier looks more action packed and is probably easier to market.
The series, which follows the MCU characters, Sam Wilson (Falcon) and James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes (Winter Soldier/White Wolf), was supposed to be released in August but due to earthquakes in Puerto Rico that affected a planned two-week shoot in January, and the Covid-19 outbreak, the show’s release is delayed.
Production has begun again but apparently there isn’t enough time to get the show polished for the end of the year, understandably so. We wouldn’t want the team to be overworked.
While fans were anticipating delays, the lack of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier this year is a blow. But in the meantime, WandaVision should keep us fed till more Marvel movies and series are release. We still have the Black Widow coming up, delayed, but coming up.
So far there’s no official release date by Disney or Marvel of when The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be released in 2021.
