Flush with John Wick success, the creator of Keanu Reeves’ puppy loving professional killer is moving to Marvel.  Derek Kolstad has joined the writing team for Falcon & Winter Soldier. This limited series is being made by Marvel Studios for the Disney+ streaming service.

“I guess we have to, huh, Sam?”

Now that Cap has retired, strange people on the internet can no longer ship a Bucky / Cap relationship.  Before a lot of cats get hurt, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan can ride to the rescue.  The ship will be strong in this one.

New Show, Who Dis?

Reprising their big-screen roles as Sam Wilson aka Falcon and Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier, respectively, the series will be set after the events of Avengers: Endgame.  

Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter) and Daniel Bruhl (Baron Zemo) are also in talks to reprise their roles.

“Yep, Buck. Cat ladies say we gotta fuck!”

Kari Skogland will direct the six-part miniseries for an August 2020 reveal.  Marvel will be producing a number of limited series for Disney+ Including WandaVision, Loki and Hawkeye.

Kolstad has been busy.  As well as writing John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, he has sold the pitch for Booker to Sony Pictures, is adapting Just Cause into a movie and is writing 3 Days of the Condor for Hulu.
