THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER Showrunner Confirms Cut Plotline But Denies It Was Pandemic-Related

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier showrunner Malcolm Spellman denies claims a pandemic storyline was cut from the series, but admits there's a "lost" arc he's been told to stop talking about by Marvel!

Even Marvel Studios wasn't immune from the affect COVID-19 had on productions across the globe, and work on The Falcon and The Winter Soldier was halted last year. That led to rumors of reshoots removing a pandemic storyline that might hit a little too close to home thanks to real-life events. 

It definitely felt like there were gaps in the Flag Smashers' plan in the Disney+ series, so it wouldn't be overly surprising to learn that the super soldiers did once plan to unleash some sort of virus on the world. 

Speaking to Amon Warmann on his Fade to Black podcast, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier showrunner Malcolm Spellman admitted that there is a "lost" storyline, but denied it was pandemic related. Instead, he hopes it could now be used in a comic book somewhere down the line. 

"I've been told to stop saying that [referring to the "lost" storyline]," he said. "I loved it, and it had nothing to do with the pandemic...I want to see if we can get some of the writers to do a book run on it because I think Kevin [Feige] does it. I've been told to stop talking about it."

It's hard to know what to make of that, but we can't help but wonder whether this might be something Isaiah Bradley-related. His past was referenced in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, but we'd have loved to see his fight with the Winter Soldier play out in a flashback. That would have admittedly slowed down the momentum of the series, so perhaps that's why it was cut?

We're intrigued that Spellman has been told not to talk about it, though (a sign it could resurface one day, perhaps). Hopefully, more will be revealed...somewhere down the line!
