According to new rumors, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier may have to undergo rewrites due to concerns over the coronavirus. WeGotThisCovered.com is reporting the new Disney+ series is taking precautions in case the deadly virus becomes a pandemic.
The article goes on to say, MCU Exchange reports show that stars Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon) and Sebastian Stan ( Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier) have extended their shooting schedule due to the rewrites. Some plot leaks and speculation have revolved around the series featuring some kind of device unleashing a virus across the populace, which, if when it airs in August the Coronavirus has become a full-on global pandemic, would be very inappropriate of the family-friendly platform to showcase.
If these reports are correct, it hasn’t affected the release date of the series on Disney+. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is still set to debut in August 2020 exclusively on the streaming service.
