The Falcon and the Winter Soldier

Marvel Studios has announced a special “virtual launch event” for its upcoming Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

The event will be streamed on March 18th at 9am PT/12pm ET on the show’s official Twitter page, as well as on Marvel Entertainment’s YouTube channel. The Twitter description of the event states that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s cast will be in attendance, so we should expect to at least see Anthony Mackie (The Falcon) and Sebastian Stan (The Winter Soldier).

Others who could appear include stars Daniel Brühl (Zemo), Port Perry, Ontario’s own Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter) and Montreal’s own Georges St-Pierre (Batroc); Ottawa-born director Kari Skogland (The Handmaid’s Tale) and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.

If the WandaVision virtual launch event was anything to go by, there may also be some special surprise guests during The Falcon and the Winter Soldier streamDuring that event, Mackie, Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Strange) and Tom Hiddleston (Loki) all made brief appearances.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier premieres on Disney+ on March 19th and will run for six nearly hour-long episodes.

This isn’t the only big superhero media releasing this week; the long-awaited Zack Snyder’s Justice League is also releasing in Canada on March 18th on Crave.
