Start the countdown for the first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier with a sweet trailer before it arrives Friday, March 19 on Disney Plus. The show will slot right into WandaVision’s Friday night spot, pairing Marvel heroes Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) in a buddy comedy adventure.
Unlike WandaVision, the Falcon and the Winter Soldier isn’t expected to premiere with two episodes on the same day. It’ll release an episode a week, with the sixth and final arriving in the third week of April. While this is fewer episodes than the Wanda and Vision sitcom, the expected episode runtime gives you a little extra, varying from 40 to 50 minutes.
Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie, as the Winter Soldier and the Falcon.
