‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’: ‘Vikings’ Alum P.J. Dillon Serves as Cinematographer on Disney+ Miniseries
At long last, we now know the cinematographer of the Marvel Studios series ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.’ On February 2nd, Autumn Durald Arkapaw, the cinematographer of the upcoming MCU series ‘Loki,’ revealed that P.J. Dillon is serving as director of photography on ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.’ Also, this post confirms that Jess Hall (‘Hot Fuzz,’ ‘Ghost in the Shell’) is indeed the cinematographer of ‘WandaVision.’
Below is the Instagram post from Arkapaw:
Dillon was the cinematographer of a whopping 29 episodes of History’s ‘Vikings.’ Other credits include Showtime’s ‘Penny Dreadful,’ HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones,’ TNT’s ‘The Alienist,’ and AMC’s ‘Into the Badlands.’ Next, he shot four episodes of the upcoming second season of ‘Altered Carbon,’ releasing February 27th on Netflix.
Other crew members include ‘Avengers: Endgame’ production designer Ray Chan, second unit director Paul Jennings (‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,’ ‘Rampage’), and ‘Ant-Man’ alum Shane Habberstad as stunt coordinator. Michael Crow (‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,’ ‘Avengers: Infinity War’) and Eric Daman (‘Love, Simon,’ ‘Billions’) serve as costume designers.
Director Kari Skogland (‘The Handmaid’s Tale,’ ‘The Punisher’) will helm all six episodes. Malcolm Spellman (‘Our Family Wedding,’ ‘Empire’) serves as showrunner. ‘John Wick’ trilogy scribe Derek Kolstad and ‘Truth Be Told’s Michael Kastelein are also in the writers’ room.
Moreover, the show will be lead by Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, reprising their roles as the titular characters. Daniel Brühl will once again play Zemo, while Emily VanCamp is back to play Sharon Carter/Agent 13. Additionally, Desmond Chiam, Miki Ishikawa, and Noah Mills all have undisclosed roles.
Wyatt Russell (‘Black Mirror: Playtest,’ ‘Overlord’) will portray John Walker, aka US Agent. In the comics, U.S. Agent has been a part of the Thunderbolts and the Dark Avengers. This could very well open the door for the same to happen in the MCU.
In Fatman Beyond, writer-director Kevin Smith discussed the possibility of the U.S. government not approving of Sam Wilson as Captain America. Thus, enter U.S. Agent, who serves as a conservative analogue for Captain America and could possibly be the government’s sanctioned hero.
Further, the premise of the show is below:
“Following the events of ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon (Mackie), and Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier (Stan), team up in a global adventure that tests their abilities—and their patience—in this upcoming miniseries.”
Meanwhile, filming is still underway, with production already wrapped in Atlanta, Georgia.
‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ will premiere this August, on the Disney+ streaming service.
