Sebastian Stan recently likened Disney Plus’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series to Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to head into unfamiliar territory with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and the rest of the upcoming shows for Disney Plus. While Steve Rogers passed on the Captain America shield to Sam Wilson, many of the characters from the Captain America film trilogy will be back for the series, including Baron Helmut Zemo and Sharon Carter.

In a sense, we are getting a continuation of the Captain America series, but in a new format. Captain America: Civil War was essentially an Avengers film, but Sebastian Stan told The Hollywood Reporter that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be more like Captain America: The Winter Soldier when asked how cinematic the series felt:

“It felt like both. In a lot of ways, it felt like a movie. Again, we’re not finished; we still have some stuff to do. What I loved about it was that, tonally, it was very much in the same world that Captain America: The Winter Soldier was, which was one of my favorite experiences that I’ve ever had, period. So, in a sense, it was grounded and very much in the world as we know it. But, it’s also really jam-packed with a lot of massive, massive action scenes mixed with deep focus on character. That’s what’s really exciting about this. We’re getting to keep it in the world of the movies, so it’s recognizable that way, but at the same time, these characters are getting so much more mileage for all of us to explore them. We can put them in situations that we’ve never been able to put them in before because you now have six hours as opposed to two. It’s always a discovery.”

Sebastian Stan was also asked if there was only one week of filming left on the series before production was put on hold due to the coronavirus:

“No, we were probably at least two or three, but don’t quote me on that.”

Here is the official synopsis The Falcon and the Winter Soldier:

Following the events of “Avengers: Endgame,” Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) team up in a global adventure that tests their abilities—and their patience—in Marvel Studios’ “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.”

Directed by Kari Skogland from scripts written by showrunner Malcolm Spellman and Derek Kolstad, the series 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. Actors Desmond Chiam, Miki Ishikawa, Noah Mills, and Carl Lumbly have also been cast.
