With the success of both “WandaVision” and “Assembled: The Making of WandaVision,” you can be sure that Disney is eager to echo that success with another making of documentary that captured the moments and themes conveyed in “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.” And they are doing that with the release of “Assembled: The Making of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.”
As with any one of these “Making of” docs, fans will get an inside look at the production of the six-episode miniseries, including the timeliness of the show, the stunt work, and production during a pandemic – as noted by the various cast and crew wearing masks. Director Kari Skogland, head writer Malcom Spellman, and executive producer Nate Moore will also be featured providing some of their behind the scenes insight on what they hoped to accomplish and how they wanted to elevate the superhero material while also creating something that is aware to the times we live in now.
And it wouldn’t be much of a “making of” documentary without Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan making an appearing. They look like they had so much fun with all of the stunt work. The trailer also teases that jaw-dropping fight between the titular heroes and the Flag Smashers ontop of two semi-trucks. Wyatt Russell (John Walker), Erin Kellyman, (Karli Morgenthau), Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter) and Daniel Brühl (Baron Zemo) will also make an appearance, and you know they’ll have something to say about the director of their characters.
Here’s the official synopsis for “Assembled: The Making of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier:”
Streaming exclusively on Disney+ beginning tomorrow, the second episode of this groundbreaking series of documentary-style specials follows Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan and members of the cast and crew as they take fans inside the making of the hard-hitting series “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.” Viewers will learn how the roots of these two characters reach as far back as “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” and the momentum has steadily built over their subsequent films. The creative minds behind the series leaned into these characters’ rich storylines along with the dynamic chemistry between Mackie and Stan as a launch pad for the series to explore the post-blip world while drawing inspiration from and coming to terms with the legacy of Captain America. The cast and crew will talk about the special alchemy they’ve developed for the series by blending genres from spy thrillers to buddy cop vehicles. The episode also showcases how the team filmed the high-flying, globe-trotting action, brought back fan favorites such as Emily VanCamp’s Sharon Carter and Daniel Brühl’s Baron Zemo, and introduced new characters into the mix.
“Assembled: The Making of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier” debuts exclusively on Disney+ on April 30, 2021.
