Marvel has had a tough time with their TV shows on Netflix which include Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Daredevil and an Avenger style assembling with The Defenders. But most of them did not receive the needed review to be deemed as good. Daredevil and Jessica Jones got good opinions. Soon the shows got canceled one after the other. The downside of the shows was terrible for Marvel. But that didn’t stop Marvel from entering the TV show market again. John Wick creator Derek Kolstad to write for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
Using the goodwill and power of Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios are producing Disney+ series exploring characters that were not given enough time on the movie screens. These characters include Wanda, Vision, Flacon, Winter Soldier, Hawk-Eye, and a crazy spin-off, which tours the possibility of Peggy Carter taking the chemical instead of Steve Rogers to become Captain America.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series is in the spotlight now, recently the news was out about Daniel Brühl and Emily Van Camp being part of the show as Baron Zemo and Sharon Carter respectively. Malcolm Spellman was chosen to be the writer for the series and now it seems like he got a helping hand from none other than the creator of Jhon Wick, Derek Kolstad.
Derek Kolstad’s screenwriting skills are well received from the John Wick franchise where he stood as the creator and even did the screenwriting and production. Keanu Reeves was perfect to play the retired hitman in the John Wick franchise which has epic action sequences. All the gun shooting segments are worth a watch. Now, Marvel going with the ‘Baba Yaga’ creator is very much reasonable. Falcon and Winter Solider are action heroes who use a lot of guns and off-course fists, like John Wick. Who else will best fit to write for the show other than Derek Kolstad?
Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan are good to go with the new implementation that will play a major role in the upcoming phase of MCU. As Kevin Feige mentioned in an investor event,
These will be major storylines, set within the MCU, with ramifications that will be felt both through the other Disney+ series we’re producing and our features on the big screen, A post-Endgame MCU will be extremely different and extremely focused on Disney+ tying into our future movies.
Steve Rogers has given his shield to Sam Wilson in Avengers: Endgame. Captain America is old and had his time by traveling back to the past he always wanted. Will the Falcon keep up the legacy to stand as the new Captain America? Let us know in the comments below.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is ready to take a new turn by coming to the small screen with these shows. Disney+ is said to be launching on November 12, 2019, and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series is scheduled to release on August 2020.
