It is now being reported that production on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has been put on hold due to the coronavirus.
The coronavirus continues to spread around-the-world, which has caused the cancellation of various events. Production on Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series had been underway since the fall in Atlanta. The series was recently filming overseas in Prague, but Deadline is reporting that the it has now been put on hold.
The pause on production comes as a result of the Czech Republic government closing down schools and placing other restrictions due to the coronavirus. Disney has now sent the crew back to Atlanta and there’s currently no timetable on when filming will resume. The series has also faced production hiccups because of an earthquake that hit Puerto Rico two months ago.
