Disney Plus MCU Show Delayed Due To Coronavirus

Filming on the Disney Plus series Falcon & Winter Soldier has been shut down in Prague due to concerns over the coronavirus.

Variety confirmed that the move comes after the Czech government placed a ban on movie screenings, elementary and high school classes, sports matches, and cultural events. The Prague Film Festival has also been canceled.

Falcon and Winter Soldier began filming in Prague last week, but the cast and crew have now been recalled to Atlanta.

This is the second time filming on the series has been interrupted. In January, the show was due to shoot in Puerto Rico but was forced to postpone shooting after the commonwealth was hit by a series of powerful earthquakes.

Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan are set to reprise their roles from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the series, with Daniel Brühl, Emily VanCamp, and Wyatt Russell also starring. The series will consist of six episodes and is due to be released on Disney Plus in August.

The show is one of several limited series based on MCU characters currently in the works at Disney Plus. Others are Ms. Marvel, Hawkeye, Loki, She-Hulk, Moon Knight, and WandaVision.

WandaVision, which stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, is also due to be released in 2020 at the end of the year.

This is not the first delay related to the Coronavirus outbreak, No Time To Die the latest James Bond film has been pushed back from April to November 2020 with many other events both live and TV having delays.

Disney+ UK launch date has been announced for March 24th.
