The duo talk to us about their new Marvel offering, why it is timely in the wake of the pandemic, and their much-celebrated bromance
They are back! Possibly the MCU’s most-loved bromance and a duo that feature in most highlight reels because of the actors’ off-screen friendship.
Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, all set to premiere on March 19, reunites superheroes Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes. More importantly, it brings back the fantastic pairing of stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, who have garnered global fandom for their hilarious banter on social media and in real-life, as Marvel follows up the success of WandaVision with another hotly-anticipated series.
Directed by Kari Skogland and created for television by Malcolm Spellman, the project has the cinematic feel of a feature film, but plays out over six episodes and takes place following the events of Avengers: Endgame — rooted in the epic moment when Steve Rogers (Captain America) presents Sam with his shield. What happens next?
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier also stars Wyatt Russell as John Walker, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, Daniel Brühl as Helmut Zemo, and if the winks during the interview are anything to go by, several celebrity cameos can be expected.
Along with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan join us for an interview on Zoom before the first episode airs later this week.
