Disney+'s Marvel Cinematic Universe show The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will premiere on the streaming service in August, according to Walt Disney President Bob Iger in a corporate earnings call on Tuesday (via Variety).

Iger also stated that Star Wars breakout hit series The Mandalorian will return for its second season in October. And finally in 2020, WandaVision will premiere in December. 

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was originally announced for a fall 2020 debut, meaning it's been moved up despite a reported production delay caused by earthquakes in Puerto Rico. WandaVision was originally scheduled to premiere in 2021 but was previously moved to an unspecified 2020 date, now publicly set for for December. 

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will therefore fall in the real world MCU release timeline between Black Widow's May 1 theatrical release and The Eternals November 6 date, with WandaVision to round out the year - fulfilling a four MCU-property 2020 release schedule.

This could also mean that the events of Black Widow - at least partially set in flashback - could play directly into The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, with Eternals potentially rippling into WandaVision, which itself leads directly to 2021's Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness and Loki.
