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.

Episode Count & Length For MCU Shows Including Loki, She-Hulk Revealed In a recent interview with Collider, when asked about the estimated runtimes for Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney+ shows, Marvel CCO Kevin Feige confirmed that each series will feature different episode counts and lengths. Feige revealed that highly-anticipated MCU shows Loki, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Moon Knight are developed as six-episode seasons with 40-50 minutes of runtime per episode. While She-Hulk is being described as a legal comedy expected to consists of ten 30-minute long episodes. “Well, we’re looking a little differently. We’re looking at it as developing them as either six hour-episodes, or nine or 10 half-hour episodes,” Feige explained. “So, for instance, WandaVision started that way and Falcon and the Winter Soldier as 30 minutes, but because it’s streaming, it’s Disney+, and the rules have blurred over the years, yes. Some can be 23 minutes. Some can be much longer than that. But She-Hulk, for instance, is being developed as 10 30-minute episodes. Some will be longer and some will be shorter. Loki, Falcon and the Winter Soldier is being developed as six 40-50-minute episodes.” RELATED: Secret Invasion: Feige Explains Decision to Adapt Major Comic Story The Falcon and the Winter Soldier stars Anthony Mackie (Captain America: Civil War) as Sam Wilson aka The Falcon, and Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) as Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier.

The upcoming series will kick off on Disney+ on March 19, 2021. Loki will feature the return of Golden Globe winner Tom Hiddleston as the fan-favorite mischievous titular villain. Hiddleston last portrayed the God of Mischief in last year’s highest-grossing film of all time Avengers: Endgame, where he successfully had stolen the Tesseract during Iron Man and Ant Man’s failed attempt to retrieve it. The series will make its debut this May.

Though clearly out of their hands due to the global pandemic, this new release date definitely shows a shift in plans for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Four series as the Captain America spin-off was originally planned for release first followed by the Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany-led WandaVision, which is still reportedly eyeing a December premiere. John Wick creator Derek Kolstad joined the writing/creative team of Falcon and the Winter Soldier, though details are still under wraps, it seems likely to follow up on Falcon’s new status quo after Avengers: Endgame.

Joining them are MCU veterans Daniel Bruhl and Emily VanCamp, who are set to return as Helmut Zemo and Sharon Carter, respectively.
