While many people consider Captain America: Civil War a good stepping stone for Avengers: Infinity War, there were some elements that many felt were left on the table. However, the upcoming The Falcon and the Winter Soldier miniseries will be picking up some of those threads when it debuts on Disney+ in 2020.
According to Deadline, the six-part miniseries will feature the return of Daniel Bruhl’s Zemo and Emily Van Camp’s Carter. A great sign of encouragement is that director Kari Skogland has signed on to direct the six-part series set for an August 2020 launch. The script is currently being written by Empire’s Malcolm Spellman.
If you don’t know who Skogland is, you most likely have seen her work. Currently, she directed the pilot episode of AMC’s NOS4A2, a handful of episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale, as well as the pilot director and executive producer of the upcoming Showtime series The Loudest Voice, which focuses on the rise of Fox News debuting this June.
Her other credits include the premiere season of Condor (Audience), The Borgias and Penny Dreadful (Showtime), Boardwalk Empire (HBO), The Killing, The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead (AMC), Under the Dome (CBS), Vikings (History), Power (Starz), The Americans (FX), and House of Cards and The Punisher (Netflix).
So, you should definitely know who she is and isn’t afraid of a high-profiled comic book series. We still don’t know anything about the new series, except for the fact that Falcon will play the new Captain America, which should please certain segments of the population. At least, we know who will be directing the series and when it will drop.
Marvel’s series are a high-point for Disney+, as is the upcoming Star Wars series. Introducing subscribers with a $6.99 a month of $69.99 for a year, it will definitely be a no-brainer options, especially if you want to see The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
