Here's Why Marvel's 'Falcon & The Winter Soldier' Is Only Six Episodes

News broke that Falcon & The Winter Soldier, starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, is only six episodes long.

Marvel boss Kevin Feige explained why at the Marvel TCA, which took place today.

Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan are spectacular actors which we felt we had to explore their stories and their backstories, or personal stories enough as Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes. So it was always the thought we’d like to learn more about both of them. In the little interactions they had with each other in Winter Soldier and Civil War…as friends of a mutual best friend in Captain America. We thought we’d have a fun dynamic, if we ever had that opportunity, we’d watch a whole show with the two of them and Disney+ gives us that opportunity,” Feige said (via Deadline).

“Six hours is what we landed on as the best way to tell our story. Six hours, whether it’s six episodes, or nine shorter episodes like Wandavision. The show aren’t inexpensive, so the per episode cost is very high and to get that bar I was talking about,” he added.

The show is set to debut on March 19 on Disney+.
