Disney Shuts Down Falcon and Winter Soldier Filming in Prague Over Coronavirus Fears

The first real impact of the coronavirus has hit the MCU, as production of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in Prague has been halted.

Deadline broke the news today:

The show has been shooting for months in Atlanta, but they began a short shoot in Prague last Friday that was to be completed in about a week. Today, the studio shut down the production and called everybody home to Atlanta. No word at the moment whether the show will return to Prague, but it seems unlikely.

This is the second setback the series has faced, as they had to not film in Puerto Rico due to the earthquake there. Right now there is zero sign that this is going to affect the show’s debut on Disney+ in August; although be prepared for fear mongers to try to claim it will.
