Marvel Halts ‘The Falcon And The Winter Soldier’ Shoot Over Coronavirus Outbreak

Not even the MCU is strong enough to withstand the coronavirus outbreak. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is the latest to be hit with delays due to the virus, as an upcoming shoot in Prague has been halted.

According to Deadline, Marvel’s upcoming Disney+ series was due to spend about a week in Prague, shifting away from the Atlanta set. However, with Prague shut down due to the coronavirus spread in the Czech Republic, the decision was made to call off filming. Everyone has been called back to Atlanta and it’s unclear what will happen next.

Obviously, this isn’t the first major production to be affected by the coronavirus, and won’t be the last. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier arrives in August 2020 and stars Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, Daniel Bruhl, Wyatt Russell, and Carl Lumbly.
