Falcon & Winter Soldier Series Confirmed For Disney+, Logo Revealed
It's really happening.
Disney's Investor Day 2019 webinar shared a first look at the app functionality of the highly anticipated Disney+ streaming service set to come out later this year, which included some first glimpses into what content will be released shortly after launch. It also confirmed a rumored Marvel show: Falcon & Winter Soldier.
The presentation featured a working prototype of the app, which showcased the title cards and logos of several MCU movies and one surprise: the Winter Soldier/Falcon series logo. You can see it in the middle of top row in the image below.
It looks like the two Avengers' fan favorites really are getting a series, despite the lack of an official announcement after the leak-based rumor mill started to churn several months back.
Bucky and Sam will be joining the other confirmed MCU spin-off Disney+ series like Loki, Vision and Wanda, and Hawkeye--though we wouldn't recommend making any big assumptions about any of these shows just yet. We know they'll be live action and we know several actors are confirmed to reprise their big screen roles, but other details are in extremely short supply. And with Avengers: Endgame just around the corner, it's probably best not to take anything for granted until we know for sure how the whole Thanos situation shakes out.
No release dates were given for the Winter Soldier/Falcon series--or any of the other MCU spin-offs, for that matter--but we do know it won't be a launch title. The title card was situated among the "coming soon" shows in the prototype app. Disney also confirmed that the service will allow downloads.
Additionally, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige suggested that Disney+ shows will play a significant part in the MCU moving forward. These shows will tie into and have an impact on the movies. Beyond these live-action programs, Feige also talked about an animated What If show that will explore alternate story concepts, such as what if Peggy Carter, not Steve Rogers, became a super soldier.
Disney+ launches on November 12 with a subscription price of $6.99 a month, or 69.99 for a year.
