With the Marvel TV shows taking longer to arrive than expected, mainly due to COVID19, we have all had more time to speculate about what the MCU will look and feel like when it comes to TV.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and WandaVision are now imminent so we are going to find out. As the press tours start and the publicity bandwagons gather pace we will shortly get to hear much more.
First out of the gate is Anthony Mackie, the Falcon himself, who had an interview with Variety and said we should prepare for something closer to a big Marvel movie rather than the usual TV series:
“We’re shooting it exactly like a movie. Everybody who had worked on TV before was like, ‘I’ve never worked on a TV show like this.’ The way in which we were shooting, it feels exactly like we were shooting the movie cut up into the show. So instead of a two-hour movie, a six or eight-hour movie.
It was the same group of people, coming together to make it work. And so the stunt stuff – everything is just on another level. Every show, every movie, they just push it – they push the envelope so much. So hopefully, knock on wood, we’ll be going back soon.”
He did speak about budget constraints, but he did think that they are not really that much of a constraint and certainly there is no quality impact. Delayed from August, the new air date is yet to be confirmed.
The first full trailer must be due soon.
