A key X-Men location was spotted on the set of Anthony Mackie’s The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson is making way to the small screen with The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, which features his character coming to terms with the responsibility of being the new Captain America, as well as bringing justice to Baron Zemo. Filming for Anthony Mackie’s Marvel series has commenced and based on photos from the set of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, X-Men fans are in for a treat.
It appears that Anthony Mackie’s Falcon will be making his way to Madripoor, an iconic island that has been heavily featured in X-Men comic books. Madripoor was inspired by Singapore, and has been a key location in many X-Men comics. In fact, X-Men character Mystique once attempted to make Madripoor a mutant utopia. Madripoor being officially introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe means that this is our first instance of integration between the Fox and Marvel properties.
Anthony Mackie’s The Falcon and The Winter Soldier featuring the X-Men locale was discovered by a Twitter user who just so happened to be at work. In the set photo from The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, you can clearly see the iconic Crescent and Lion flag that the X-Men locale has.

With a piece of Anthony Mackie’s The Falcon and The Winter Soldier being set on the iconic X-Men island, is it possible that the show will give us our first look at a member of the X-Men in the MCU? Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is already hard at working trying to integrate Fox properties like X-Men into the MCU, and something as low-key as this would be the perfect way to get fans and general audiences on board.
What are your thoughts on the X-Men island of Madripoor being featured in Anthony Mackie’s The Falcon and The Winter Soldier? Let us know in the comments!
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is set after the events of Avengers: Endgame. The series is rumored to center on 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 the Winter Soldier stars Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson / Falcon, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes / The Winter Soldier, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, Daniel Bruhl as Helmut Zemo, and Wyatt Russell as John Walker / U.S. Agent.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will debut on Disney Plus in 2020.
