    Marvel Reveals New Stills From The Falcon and the wintertime Soldier

    Marvel Reveals New Stills From The Falcon and the Winter Soldier The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s premiere date is fast approaching, and Marvel continues to pull back the curtain on Sam and Bucky’s next adventure in the MCU. The studio (via ComicBook.com) has just released 10 new photos from the upcoming series. You can check them out for yourself in the gallery below. Not surprisingly, most of these shots highlight the title characters (sometimes together, sometimes on their own). Among these are better looks at Bucky’s new cybernetic arm, which trades in the sterling silver of previous MCU escapades in favor of a black and gold motif. We also see new stills of Sam Wilson with Captain America’s shield, one of which features him wearing a suit and tie (which, admittedly, isn’t the best outfit to practice shield-throwing with). However, other images feature some of the series’ supporting players. One shot in particular shows Sam and Bucky fighting alongside Emily VanCamp’s Sharon Carter, who returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time since Captain America: Civil War bowed in 2016. Additionally, there’s a new behind-the-scenes candid of Anthony Mackie, director Kari Skogland, and actress Adepero Oduye. Until now, Oduye’s role on the series has been a mystery. But the photo’s description indicates that she’s playing Sarah Wilson, Sam’s sister from the comics. Unfortunately, this new batch doesn’t include any additional shots of Daniel Brühl’s Baron Zemo or Wyatt Russell’s U.S. Agent. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier hits Disney+ on March 19.

    Disney Investor Pushing for Big Films Like Black Widow to Debut on Disney+

    Disney Investor Pushing for Disney+ Debuts for Big Films Like Black Widow Last month, Black Widow was among the many high-profile film releases that were pushed back to 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic that has still been affecting theater chains around the world. To some people, Disney made the right call to make the delays while others including Disney investor Dan Loeb think that the company should have just foregone its planned theatrical releases and move them to streaming instead Speaking with Variety, Loeb believes that tentpole projects like Black Widow would immediately give Disney+ the upper hand on their streaming competitors such as Netflix. Should the House of Mouse really consider this move, it would definitely attract subscribers and generate them more profit, especially if they would use the Premium Access strategy that they’ve first applied to the release of the live-action Mulan. RELATED: Wonder Woman 1984: Patty Jenkins Debunks Streaming Release Rumors “My understanding is that the old-line executives don’t want to go over the top with their big tentpole movies, which is why they announced they were pushing ‘Black Widow” and other movies to 2021,” Loeb said. “I don’t think they appreciate the tiger they have by the tail, which is to say the value they can drive by moving into a subscription model, which has been adopted by everyone from Microsoft to Amazon. It’s so value accretive.” “What Netflix has is this immense subscriber base that allows it to invest in an enormous amount of content and amortize that to get more subscribers,” Loeb continued. “Disney isn’t there yet, but they need to get there as quickly as possible. If they don’t get critical mass in their subscriber base, they will be permanently disadvantaged versus Netflix.” However, the main problem with this move-to-streaming strategy is that theater chains would be immensely affected and betrayed by this decision, especially when it has already been hard for them to keep their businesses afloat during this time. In Black Widow, Scarlett Johansson returns as Natasha Romanoff, a spy, and assassin who grew up being trained by the KGB before breaking from their grasp and becoming an agent of SHIELD and an Avenger. The film is expected to be set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, but before Avengers: Infinity War. Black Widow will also feature a star-studded cast including Golden Globe nominee David Harbour (Stranger Things, Hellboy) as Alexei aka The Red Guardian, Florence Pugh (Fighting with My Family) as Yelena Belova, Academy Award-winning actress Rachel Weisz (The Favourite) as Melina and O-T Fagbenle (The Handmaid’s Tale) as Mason. RELATED: Florence Pugh Pumps the Brakes On Future Black Widow Films The movie was directed by Cate Shortland (Lore) from a script written by Jac Schaeffer (The Hustle). Black Widow is set to release on May 7, 2021, which will be a year later since its original release date.
