Good news, Marvel fans.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced that Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier (played by Sebastian Stan) and Sam Wilson/Falcon (played by Anthony Mackie) will reunite onscreen for Falcon and the Winter Soldier, a new series on the Disney+ streaming service.
The announcement came at the same time that Disney announced that Wanda Maximoff (played Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (voiced by Paul Bettany) will star in WandaVision, also on the streaming service.

Stan, whose character along with Mackie’s, snapped into oblivion during the climax of Avengers: Infinity War, is sure to be thrilled, but he had a rather subdued, matter-of-fact response to the news.
It gets straight to the point.
It’s… pretty much what you’d expect from an actor who has grown to become among the more reliable ones in the business
If Stan’s reaction seems understated, trust that the reaction from his fans is not.

Disney+ will debut in November 2019 and there’s no word when the series will debut, but we expect more information to come in the next few weeks.
Suffice it to say that this is an exciting time to be a fan of the Marvel Universe.
