The Falcon & The Winter Soldier was the first Marvel x Disney Plus venture to shut down production due to being shot in Eastern Europe where Italy is struggling immensely to contain the virus. The cancellation of the Captain America-themed television series comes after Disney postponed production on the Marvel live-action film, Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings

Disney has also halted production on films like The Last Duel, The Little Mermaid, Home Alone, Nightmare Alley, Peter Pan & Wendy, and Shrunk. Last month, Marvel and Disney released a slew of trailers for all of their upcoming Disney Plus content during Super Bowl LIV. Unfortunately, fans of the comic book universe and films will have to wait a little while longer while health concerns have arisen.
