The first season of WandaVision concluded with an explosive finale leaving all of us emotional. The miniseries show based on two superheroes emerged as one of the best shows of 2021 and enthralled the MCU’s fans for nine weeks. The fans are yet not over WandaVision. Well, there is no need to complain as Marvel is all set to release the next miniseries The Falcon and the Winter Soldier as a part of Phase Four of the MCU.
The Disney Plus show created by Malcolm Spellman is based on the Marvel Comics characters Sam Wilson / Falcon and Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier. A buddy comedy adventure show is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) following the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019).
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier release schedule
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will premiere on March 19, 2021. A new episode will release every week, with the finale arriving on April 23, 2021. Though there will be only 6 episodes, per episode runtime will be more, unlike WandaVision which disappointed the fans with short episodes. We are expecting the episode runtime to more, ranging from 40 to 50 minutes.
Commenting on the low episode count, Marvel president, Kevin Feige said, “Six hours is what we landed on as the best way to tell our story. Six hours, whether it’s six episodes or nine shorter episodes like WandaVision. The shows aren’t inexpensive, so the per-episode cost is very high and to get that bar I was talking about.”
