Prepare To Ship!
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.
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.
