The Falcon and the Winter Soldier featured a location named Madripoor that has essential ties to the broader Marvel universe, and showrunner Malcolm Spellman has revealed the way it made it into the Disney+ collection.
Talking to Thrillist, Spellman mentioned how Marvel does not essentially drive characters or places on creators, and as an alternative needs them to “before everything inform the perfect story they’ll.” Then, the crew will work to tie it into the “larger puzzle that’s the MCU.” That is the place Madripoor got here in.
“So far as I do know, they do not try this,” Spellman defined. “They need you before everything to inform the perfect story you possibly can after which they see how the story you have already instructed can match into the larger puzzle that’s the MCU. For instance, Madripoor began off as a metropolis based mostly on an actual place the place the eating places promote endangered species and there is an open gun bazaar. As soon as we created a metropolis like that they’re wanting by means of their metric of what they are going to be doing sooner or later, like, “Oh, what if that metropolis was Madripoor?” So it was an ideal match.”
This similar course of occurred with Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Valentina Allegra de Fontaine. She “began off as simply form of a shady ass CIA sort and so they stated, “What if it is Val?”
For these unfamiliar, Madripoor has a connection to Wolverine within the comics, and Spellman instructed us that “every kind of discussions occurred, and everybody at Marvel is conscious of what Madripoor is and what it means to MCU. That is all I will say”
