The Falcon's future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe may be in question after the "Decimation" that occurred due to Thanos' snap during Infinity War. Anthony Mackie is rumored to reprise his role as Sam Wilson to team up with Sebastian Stan's James "Bucky" Barnes in a Falcon and Winter Soldier team up series for Disney's Disney+ streaming service.
For his part, Stan said he didn't recall any conversations about the series taking place.
"Not really, no," Stan said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. "It's usually like a dream. People might mention something, but we never go that way."
