It’s a cool day over in Prague as Falcon and Winter Soldier filming came to a halt. The production hiatus came over Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns as the Czech government placed a ban on movie screenings, school classes, sports events, and other large events. This includes the popular Prague Film Festival. The WHO has suggested that this virus will become a global issue, and so soon after Falcon and Winter Soldier shifted to Prague, the production team was asked to return home. There is no word on if the production will return to Europe or if another filming location will be chosen.
Instead, the cast and crew have been recalled to Atlanta, where many of the Marvel movies and Disney+ offerings have been headquartered. Sadly, this is not the first time this particular production has been interrupted. The show faced delays and complications when shooting in Puerto Rico last January as a set of powerful earthquakes shook the U.S. Territory. The recent Prague shutdown was a hot topic on twitter, as seen in this particular tweet from Variety.
