Disney+ Big Game Ad Highlights Upcoming Marvel TV Shows

Posted by at 11:13 am on February 3, 2020

Many Avengers will soon be venturing to Disney’s new streaming platform, Disney+ for limited series during Phase Four of the MCU. A few more will be introduced via their own series. Several of the shows were previewed in a big game trailer yesterday (check it out below) and here’s what we know about the Marvel shows in the trailer that are coming to Disney+.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (August 2020)

Remember how great it was to watch Falcon (Sam Wilson) and the Winter Soldier (Bucky Barnes) bicker back and forth in Captain America: Civil War? These two are taking their show on the road in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, with Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan reprising their roles.

The six-episode series will be written by Malcolm Spellman and directed by Kari Skogland. Daniel Bruhl is confirmed to return for the series as Zemo, while Emily VanCamp will reprise her role as Sharon Carter/Agent 13. Lodge 49’s Wyatt Russell has signed on to play the character of John Walker.

The series, which is said to have a buddy cop feel to it, will be the first of the MCU shows to premiere on the streaming service when it lands in the fall of 2020. The logo for the show, which you can see above, now features a certain shield, because as you’re probably aware if you’re reading this, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) handed over his iconic shield to Sam, and thus passed on the title of Captain America, in the final moments of Endgame.

WandaVision (2020)

WandaVision, a limited series starring Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany’s Vision, will premiere in 2020. (Disney+ has bumped up the release date from its originally scheduled debut in spring 2021.) Olsen promises that the series is really going to dig into Wanda in a way the movies never could. “We’re going to have a lot of fun. It’s going to get weird. We’re going to go deep. We’re going to have lots of surprises and we’re going to finally understand Wanda as the Scarlet Witch,” Olsen teased at San Diego Comic-Con. As for what is going on with Vision, who died in Avengers: Infinity War, Bettany said he has no answers: “I have no idea. I have never been this confused before in front of this many people in my whole life.”

The show will also feature Teyonah Parris as an adult Monica Rambeau. You might remember the character from Captain Marvel, played in that movie by Akira Akbar. Monica is the daughter of Carol Danvers’ best friend, Maria Rambeau (Lashana Lynch). In the comics, Monica eventually takes on the title of Captain Marvel herself after she gains powers when she is exposed to extra-dimensional energy. Additional cast members include Thor’s Kat Dennings, making her return as Darcy, and Randall Park, who is reprising his role from Ant-Man and the Wasp. Lastly, Kathryn Hahn will appear as a nosy neighbor.

The series will be the first to tie directly into one of the MCU’s feature films, but it won’t be the last. Olsen is confirmed to appear in the Doctor Strange sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, in theaters May 7, 2021.

Loki (Spring 2021)

Loki, a new limited series that finds Tom Hiddleston reprising his fan-favorite role, is premiering in the spring of 2021. Although the god of mischief met his demise at the hands of Thanos (Josh Brolin) in Infinity War, a different version of Loki escaped with the Tesseract during the events of Endgame, and that’s who we will be following in the new series, not the evolved man from Thor: Ragnarok.

“He’s still that guy [from Avengers], and just about the last thing that happened to him was he got Hulk-smashed, so there’s a lot of psychological evolution that has still yet to happen,” teased Hiddleston during San Diego Comic-Con this summer. “But I [know what the plans are] and I can’t tell you any of them. It is one of the most exciting, creative opportunities I have ever come across. It is a new challenge, and I cannot wait to get started.”

Rick & Morty’s Michael Waldron will not only serve as showrunner, but also write the pilot and executive produce. Like WandaVision, the series will tie directly into the events of the Doctor Strange sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, in theaters May 7, 2021.
