“Just fewer head shots” –Kolstad
Kolstad says we can expect “resilient fun” with a touch of “Darkness”. On 30th of August, Kolstad took over the Twitter account for Discussing Film, and answered fan questions about the upcoming series, revealing what people can expect of the show’s tone.
One fan @Khalil_Deadpool asked, “Will you incorporate tonal elements from John Wick into the Winter Soldier and Falcon show?,” @Khalil_Deadpool asked.
To which Kolstad replied, “There’s a wink and a nod to the world building of John Wick to be sure. Just fewer head shots”
“while touching upon the darkness…. got to be some resilient fun to it” – Kolstad
Another fan by the name @plzme2012wondered, “What kind of tone are you hoping to utilize for Falcon & The Winter Soldier”
“In a post-blip world, while touching upon the darkness of it all, there’s got to be some resilient fun to it,” Kolstad answered.
A little romance, maybe?
Yet another fan @xingmi4life inquired, “The MCU has always thrived in portraying strong friendships and feelings and strong care being felt without words but in action. In contrary, romance in the MCU has been lacking in true chemistry and development for the most part. Will FAWS focus more on platonic relationships?,”
“Totally. There is an element of Band of Brothers to this by way of Lethal Weapon,” Kolstad teased.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will debut on Disney+ in late 2020.
