The Falcon and Winter Soldier: Anthony Mackie Reveals New Falcon Costume | IGN

Anthony Mackie has offered a look at the new suit The Falcon will wear in the upcoming Falcon and Winter Soldier, after production restarted on the streaming series.

Looking like a close match to concept art we’ve previously seen for the series, Mackie’s suit features the V-shaped chest motif we’ve seen on multiple Falcon costumes over the years, and looks a little less armour-focused than his previous MCU look.

As it turns out, the person taking that photograph was The Winter Soldier, Sebastian Stan, who may himself have offered a glimpse at a new look for the character.

While it’s entirely possible that Stan just, you know, dresses like that, his leather jacket resembles another piece of concept art – it may be that both characters will be slightly more casually dressed for their TV starring roles. Well, as casual as you can be while still using a bulletproof robot arm.

Production on The Falcon and Winter Soldier stopped in March, and the show was delayed out of its August release window as a result. With production only now restarting, it’s unclear when the show (and the likes of WandaVision, Loki, and other Marvel streaming series) will air.

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is a spinoff series focusing on Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson – who was personally handed Captain America’s shield by Steve Rogers at the end of Avengers: Endgame – and Sebastian Stan’s deprogrammed assassin “Bucky” Barnes (a.k.a. The Winter Soldier).

Returning characters include Daniel Bruhl’s villainous Zemo from Captain America: Civil War, and Emily Van Camp’s Sharon Carter. The series will also introduce Wyatt Russell as John Walker – a.k.a. U.S. Agent.
