The following article contains spoilers for Avengers Endgame.
Now that the dust is beginning to settle on Avengers Endgame, information on the multiple Disney+ TV shows in development is ramping up with new cast members added to The Falcon and Winter Soldier. According to Deadline, Emily VanCamp and Daniel Brühl are in talks to reprise their respective roles in the eagerly awaited series.
Emily VanCamp portrayed Sharon Carter (aka Agent 13) in both The Winter Soldier & Civil War. We only discovered her identity during the funeral of Peggy Carter (her Auntie), and she shared a brief romantic moment with Cap before he went off to have a scuffle with the Tony Stark led faction of the Avengers in Civil War. Daniel Brühl starred as the vengeful Helmut Zemo in Civil War who elaborately framed Bucky Barnes for the attack at the conference in Vienna that claimed the life of T'Challa's father. His bid to fracture the Avengers worked even if he was unsuccessful in destroying them entirely.
When we last saw Zemo, he was locked up in a secure facility overseen by Everett Ross (Martin Freeman). Unlike many of the villains of the MCU, this iteration of Helmut Zemo currently has no superpowers aside from his intellect and combat skills. If you're familiar with the character, you'll know that he's eventually bestowed with all kinds of powers. Could Zemo be the main antagonist for the Falcon and Winter Soldier series? It would link nicely into Civil War, and explore Sam's journey in taking on the Captain America mantle following the conclusion of Endgame.
All six episodes will be directed by Kari Skogland (The Walking Dead, The Americans) with the series landing on Disney+ August 2020. Falcon and The Winter Soldier aren't the only characters making the jump to the small screen for a limited series. WandaVision somehow reunites Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany as Vision for the aptly titled WandaVision. Last seen escaping the grasp of SHIELD in 2012 with the Tesseract, Tom Hiddleston's Loki will be wreaking havoc across time in his very own series. There is currently no fixed date for Loki, but WandaVision will launch on Disney+ later this year. The highly anticipated streaming service will be available in the US on November 12, at the time of writing there is still no date for the worldwide launch.
