Production on Anthony Mackie’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will no longer take place in Peurto Rico due to the recent earthquake.
Marvel Studios’ line-up of phase 4 projects include The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, a Disney Plus series centered on the eponymous duo as they attempt to move forward without Captain America. Production on Anthony Mackie’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier officially began in the fall of 2018 at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, and was set to move to Peurto Rico for a two-week shoot with members of the creative team scheduled to arrive tomorrow.
However, Peurto Rico was hit with a 6.4 magnitude earthquake on its southern coast last Tuesday followed by a 5.9 magnitude earthquake on Sunday. Now, Deadline has confirmed the Anthony Mackie series has suspended its Peurto Rico location shoot due to the earthquake.
The outlet notes that it is unclear if the Anthony Mackie series will continue production in Puerto Rico down the line, but adds that it will most likely move elsewhere. The local outlet Butaca del Medio reports that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was originally going to film in the northern part of the island in Arecibo.

The Falcon and Winter Soldier is currently set to be the first Marvel Studios series to debut on Disney Plus. Set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, the series is rumored to center on Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes as the former finds himself facing resistance from the United States government and its opposition to him taking on the Captain America mantle.
Directed by Kari Skogland from scripts written by showrunner Malcolm Spellman and Derek Kolstad, The Falcon and Winter Soldier stars Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson / Falcon, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes / The Winter Soldier, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, Daniel Brühl as Baron Helmut Zemo, and Wyatt Russell as John Walker / U.S. Agent.
The Falcon and Winter Soldier will debut on Disney Plus in late 2020.
