The Falcon and the Winter Solider's Anthony Mackie blasts 'awful, rough' quarantine conditions on Disney+ set

THE Falcon and the Winter Soldier's Anthony Mackie has blasted 'awful, rough' quarantine conditions on the Disney+ set.

The Marvel series had to halt production in Prague back in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The cast and crew have now resumed filming in the Czech Republic, but with strict health and safety rules in place.

This includes wearing face masks between takes and staying six feet apart to social distance.

Discussing the new regulations, Anthony – who plays Falcon – told Entertainment Weekly: "Everybody's very afraid of each other. The food is bad because they have to pack it up somewhere else and bring it to us in Ziploc bags. Yeah, it's awful.

"You're literally living in quarantine. It's not like the NBA bubble where they had a barbershop and friends to hang out with."


Anthony, who stars alongside Sebastian Stan in the series, added: "No, if you get within six feet of somebody, there's some little Czech dude coming and poking you with a stick saying, 'You have to move,' So it's rough."

Back in September, it was revealed the show had been delayed until 2021 due to the filming delays.

Murphy's Multiverse reported the cast and crew are hoping to wrap in November in time to be home for the holidays.

This would mean the show wouldn't be released until 2021, and not its original 2020 plan, much to fans' disappointment.

However, star Anthony previously promised fans the series would be worth the wait and said it is like a "six hour movie".

The Marvel films became such a hit thanks to the quality of the stunts and action scenes as well as the humour and character's story arcs.

And Anthony said the same high standard has been applied to The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
