Recently, it was revealed that Marvel Studios is developing shows for Disney Play, the studio’s forthcoming streaming service. The shows will center around Loki, Scarlet Witch, and other popular supporting characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Also, they will bring back actors from the movies.
Now, we know of another series that is in development. Empire writer Malcolm Spellman is working on a limited series starring Winter Soldier/Bucky Barnes and Falcon/Sam Wilson. It is Disney Play’s first Marvel series to get a writer. Details on its plot, including where it takes place in the MCU timeline, are under wraps.
Played by Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie, respectively, Bucky and Sam have been two key supporting characters in many Marvel movies, particularly the Captain America trilogy. They most recently appeared in Avengers: Infinity War, where they were both among the many casualties of Thanos’ cleansing of the universe. Obviously, that isn’t going to be permanent.
Stay tuned for more news as we have it.
