The Falcon And The Winter Soldier series may well be adding some old MCU faces.

According to Deadline, Captain America: Civil War stars Daniel Bruhl and Emily Van Camp are in talks to join Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan in the Disney+ show.

Bruhl played the villain Baron Zemo in the Marvel movie while Van Camp would be reprising her Captain America: The Winter Soldier role Sharon Carter.

Carter is the grand-niece of Peggy Carter, Steve Rogers’ first love, which makes their Civil War kiss all the more awkward, especially after Avengers: Endgame.

She was last seen working for the C.I.A. after S.H.I.E.L.D. was shut down by Black Widow and Captain America because of H.Y.D.R.A. infiltrating the spy organisation.

Zemo was taken prisoner by Black Panther after a failed suicide attempt so it will be interesting to see how he will factor into the six-part miniseries.

Kari Skogland has been tapped to direct The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, with Empire’s Malcolm Spellman on board as a writer.

Skogland has a string of prestige television shows to her name, including The Handmaid’s Tale, The Borgias, Penny Dreadful, Boardwalk Empire, The Killing, The Walking Dead, The Americans, as well as House of Cards and The Punisher on Netflix.

Details about the setting and plot of the show have been kept under-wraps but Stan had this to say about what we might expect for Bucky Barnes.

"I think it's time for Bucky to go out there and have an identity outside of the circumstances that we've met him through," Stan said at an Italian Comic-Con. "So, I don't know, he might do all kinds of things. He might even go on a date. I don't know. Scary world out there, you know? Apps, things like that.

“I don't know what he's gonna do. I can't see him on an iPhone...I think it's gonna be a lot of dealing with Anthony's character and Anthony himself which is always another character."

At the end of Endgame, and old man Steve Rogers passed on the Captain America shield to Mackie’s Sam Wilson suggesting that he would take up the hero’s mantle in future films.

This may come into play in the Disney+ series but it seems likely that most of these new Marvel shows will be set in the past and before the events of Infinity War.

The Black Widow solo movie certainly will as well as the WandaVision and Loki shows, as all but one of these characters are already dead by the end of Endgame.

The Falcon And The Winter Soldier is heading to Disney+ in 2020.
