The Falcon And The Winter Soldier Pause In Prague
Marvel Production Halted Because of the Coronavirus
Not much can stop Marvel’s The Falcon and The Winter Soldier except some very real concerns about the Coronavirus.
Another high-profile coronavirus casualty. After the government of Prague closed schools and placed other restrictions on event and travel, the Disney+ series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier from Marvel has shut down production there because of concerns over the virus, whose global spread has the entire world on alert… The show has been shooting for months in Atlanta, but they began a short shoot in Prague last Friday that was to be completed in about a week. Today, the studio shut down the production and called everybody home to Atlanta. No word at the moment whether the show will return to Prague, but it seems unlikely.
This is the second time the series has been interrupted by real events: plans to shoot in Puerto Rico in January were squashed because of a 6.4 magnitude earthquake along its southern coast, reportedly the island’s biggest in a century.
Background on the Show
Back in November and December, I posted for MickeyBlog.com:
Here’s hoping we have some new — and good — official news, soon.
Deadline reported the show remains slated for Disney+ in August.
