Daniel Bruhl, who played the villainous Zemo in Captain America: Civil War, has shared the first images from the Falcon And The Winter Soldier series from Disney+. Here’s everything we know..
Bruhl will reprise his sinister role in the streaming service’s show, giving Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson and Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes a fearsome foe to fight.
Following San Diego Comic Con, where Disney teased the show, Bruhl has shared two images on his Instagram account. Particularly exciting is the sight of Zemo wearing his mask from the comics…
In other news, The Wrap recently reported that writer Derek Kolstad has joined the production. His last feature was John Wick: Chapter 3, and he also has three other TV projects on his dance card at the moment: The Continental, Just Cause and Hitman.
It’s not clear yet how big Kolstad’s contributions to Falcon And Winter Soldier will be. Collider notes that the show has a writer’s room, so Kolstad is presumably one of many people working on the show.
Variety previously reported that Malcolm Spellman has been hired by Marvel/Disney to pen the series. His previous credits include Empire, Our Family Wedding and the Sopranos video game Road To Respect.
One other thing we know is that Kevin Feige – the head honcho of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – is on board as a producer. This is a big deal, since he didn’t have hands-on involvement in the creation of the Marvel/Netflix universe that began with Daredevil.
As we hear more about the Bucky/Falcon series, and Disney’s streaming service plans in general, we’ll be sure to keep you posted. The show is expected to arrive in autumn 2020.
