avengers endgame falcon

Marvel kept a super tight on spoilers for Avengers: Endgame, so much so that most of the cast didn’t even know what happened in the movie. Fake scripts and false endings abounded so as to make sure the more spoiler-prone cast members (read: Tom Holland and Mark Ruffalo), wouldn’t let anything spill. But that apparently didn’t keep the Avengers from spoiling it amongst themselves.

Anthony Mackie didn’t even know if he would appear in Avengers: Endgame, after his character’s fate in Avengers: Infinity War. But his Avengers Endgame Falcon storyline was spoiled for him by none other than Chris Evans.

Spoilers for Avengers: Endgame below.

Winter Soldier : Falcon

Just over a year ago, Disney announced they would be launching their own streaming service. Disney Play will include the company’s vast library of content as well as original feature films and TV series. Included in the original offerings are multiple Marvel and Star Wars TV shows. The plan is to create series based around Marvel Cinematic Universe characters who have yet to have their own standalone movies, which includes TV shows focused on Loki and Scarlet Witch starring Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen. Each season will run six to eight episodes, and unlike most of the Marvel Netflix and ABC shows, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is expected to have an active role in their development.

We have learned that Disney is also developing a third series that will give fans the Falcon/Winter Soldier team-up that they have been wanting since Captain America: Civil War. On top of that, I have also learned a few more details about the Scarlet Witch series. Here’s what we know.
