Sebastian Stan revealed that he doesn’t know when filming will resume on The Falcon and The Winter Soldier following the coronavirus.
After Marvel halted all production on its current slate of shows for Disney Plus, Sebastian Stan explained in a new interview that he isn’t sure when filming on The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will restart due to the current pandemic. The series is still supposedly set for release in August later this year, but it isn’t clear whether that date is still achievable now that production has paused. Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie were filming in Prague when Marvel Studios decided to halt production for the time being.
In an interview with TV Guide, Sebastian Stan mentioned that The Falcon and The Winter Soldier isn’t his immediate worry right now thanks to the danger of the pandemic. The star explained that the people behind the series were lucky to get as much done as they did, but they’re not finished. Stan also made it clear that he wants to get it finished, but he isn’t sure when it’ll be possible or safe to do so.
“It’s not really at the forefront of my mind. You know, we were lucky to get far enough. We haven’t finished. The plan is to go back whenever we can, whenever that might be, to finish. Whenever we can turn this thing around and people can get back together, we can pick back up, but I just don’t know at this point.”
