Marvel Studios appears to be well into pre-production on the first of their upcoming Disney+ series, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, with Kari Skogland having been recently hired as director for the series, as they gear up to start filming in October. Now, the studio have reportedly hired Raymond Chan as the series’ production designer, which while not the most publicised role, is a very key and important one to production.
While Chan isn’t exactly a household name, he has a long and impressive resume working as Supervising Art Director on a number of Marvel Studios films, including the recent Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Chan also previously served in the role on Doctor Strange, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Guardians of The Galaxy, and Thor: The Dark World, all of which are certainly among some of the best looking films in the MCU. While Chan is serving in a slightly different role this time, if his past work is in any way indicative of how Falcon and the Winter Soldier will end up looking, then the series is clearly in very good and capable hands.
We don’t know much about what the Falcon and the Winter Soldier show will entail, beyond presumably showing how Anthony Mackie‘s Sam Wilson becomes the new Captain America, after being handed the shield by Steve Rogers at the end of Endgame. We also know Daniel Bruhl and Emily Van Camp will be returning as Zemo and Sharon Carter, and with rumors pointing towards an appearance by U.S. Agent, this is certainly shaping up to be a potentially very exciting series.
We have no concrete idea of when the show will release, but with filming set to start in October, expect to see the Falcon and the Winter Soldier most likely debut on Disney+ some time next year.
