A set of behind the scenes photos from The Falcon and The Winter Soldier have given us a new look at major X-Men location.
Since The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was officially announced, many have wondered just what kind of story Marvel would tell with it. While exact details on the upcoming Disney+ series are hard to come by we do know that at least part of the show will take place in a major X-Men location. Specifically, in the city of Madripoor.
In the comics, Madripoor is something akin to a Marvel Universe version of Deadwood. The nation is one that generally keeps itself isolated from the laws and bindings of the rest of the Marvel world. As a result, it is often a haven for criminals with a massive gap between the rich and the poor and is subject to frequent takeovers by supervillains. The setting often used in X-Men stories and was first introduced in The New Mutants #32 in 1985. However, now the X-Men city will be used for the first time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
While we still don’t know how big of a role Madripoor will play in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, we know have an idea as to what the city may look like. Thanks to Murphy’s Multiverse we have a behind the scenes look at the X-Men city that shows something rather bleak. You can see the full image at the site.
