Set to premiere this Friday, Marvel’s latest mini-series on Disney+, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, is said to take place six months after the events of Avenger’s Endgame as the world continues to try to return to normalcy following the blip according to director Kari Skogland.

The story, of course, follows Bucky Barnes and Sam Wilson in the post-Steve Rogers Captain America world and will have a wider scope than that of WandaVision. Skogland went on to elaborate on the complexities of dealing with the post-blip world in an interview with Collider.
“Everything narratively was informed by that event for us,” Skogland told Collider recently. “It meant that we’re just past the shock of it. We’re just past the joy of it — because we’re imagining that there would be a lot of joy, in people returning. Now we’re into the reality of it, which is complicated. With half the population Blipped away, you’ve got different economic circumstances, different border circumstances. Different countries were cooperative, that weren’t before. Neighbors are cooperating, who weren’t necessarily getting along before. People moved into houses that they didn’t own before. Everything changed. Now we’re into that moment. We’re past the surprise of it and now we’re into the realities of it. I think that makes for a very different place in the story, because we can get not only grounded about it, but we can drill into how people respond to that. Some of it’s good and some of it’s not so good.”
