In a matter of weeks, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will race to Disney+ and reunite Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan). Before then, however, the lead characters involved in the series will get their own catch-up episodes as part of the House of Ideas' Marvel Studios: Legends Disney+ series. As unveiled by the streamer on Tuesday, four characters will get their own episode in the series aimed at catching fans up with the whereabouts of anyone and everyone involved.
In addition to both Falcon (Mackie) and the Winter Soldier (Stan), both Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp) and Helmut Zemo (Daniel Brühl) will each get an entry in Legends. The addition of Agent 13 and Zemo seem to suggest the characters are guaranteed to have substantial roles in the series. WandaVision only get two episodes for the micro-series, one based on Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and another for Vision (Paul Bettany).
The episodes will be added to Disney+ on March 12th, the week before the series debuts on the streamer. The additions will also serve as the base for a very Marvel day, as the first episode of Marvel's Assembled docuseries is also expected to debut that Friday.
In the same vein as Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, Assembled will serve as a behind-the-scenes look at the development of each and every property from Marvel Studios — both film and Disney+ shows.
