If you’re like me then you are anxiously awaiting the debut of Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+. Though COVID-19 has halted production, filming should return very soon in the Czech Republic. I for one am hopeful things to be well underway and that everyone in the The Falcon and the Winter Soldier crew is safe.
In an interview with Variety, Anthony Mackie explains his The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on set experience. He explains by saying the following:
“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.” He then goes on by saying: “Those movies are like summer camp,” he continued. “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.”
Mackie then revealed that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will also look like a Marvel 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.”
