Restrictions on events and travel were cited when the Disney+ series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier from Marvel shut down production. The show stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan as the title characters, and is a spinoff from the Captain America and Avengers films.

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.

Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Sophia Di Martino are also in the cast.WandaVision has Paul Bethany and Elisabeth Olsen starring in a look at the relationship between a mutant witch and an android, set in the 1950s.
