Season recap – what happened?
Falcon and Winter Soldier is set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, which came out in 2019. This movie sees Tony Stark in space without any food or water, and he sends a message to Pepper Potts once his oxygen supply begins to run out. The other Avengers – namely Bruce Banner, Black Widow, Thor and Captain America – are on a mission to bring back their allies after intergalactic warlord Thanos disintegrated half the universe. An epic showdown is planned, and the movie ends with Sam Wilson being handed the mantle of Captain America.

Filming for Falcon and Winter Soldier began in 2019 and took place in Atlanta, Georgia. Before filming was suspended due to COVID-19, the team had moved to the Czech Republic for more filming in early March 2020. In September 2020, filming began again in Atlanta, and it is expected that the cast and crew will return to the Czech Republic at some point in 2020.
