Marvel took the stage at SDCC and brought new details on upcoming movies, but also the planned shows on Disney+.
Marvel Studios decided to blow the roof off of Comic-Con tonight with a full reveal of their Phase 4 slate. What’s interesting, however, is that films weren’t the only things included on in those announcements. On top of the movies, several series (some announced, some just rumored) for the Disney+ service were added to the Phase 4 slate with new details given.
Since these were included in the Phase 4 reveal, that should give fans an indication of how closely connected these shows will be to the films and overall MCU. Something the Netflix series never had going for it. Hell, they already confirmed that WandaVision somehow ties into the next Doctor Strange!
Below you’ll find the official logos they revealed, along with the new details they offered on each series in the order we’ll be seeing them:
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (Fall 2020)
Feige brought news on the Disney+ original series “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier,” which pairs up two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most popular heroes—Sam Wilson aka The Falcon and Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier—in a series of action-filled adventures as they fight together against evil after the events of “Avengers: Endgame.”
We learned earlier that Anthony Mackie has already tried on his new Captain America outfit for the show, so it’ll be exciting to see that come together soon. The other exciting element is seeing that Daniel Brühl will return as the villain, Baron Zemo!
WandaVision (Spring 2021)
Next, Feige offered the latest on “WandaVision,” a Disney+ original series where Paul Bettany reprises the role of Vision and Elizabeth Olsen returns to her role of Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch.
Bettany and Olsen were joined on stage by MCU newcomer Teyonah Parris, and Feige announced that Parris will be playing the grown-up version of Monica Rambeau, who was introduced to audiences in “Captain Marvel.”
LOKI (Spring 2021)
Feige offered news on “Loki,” a Marvel Studios original series streaming on Disney+ in the spring of 2021. Tom Hiddleston—back in his role of the mercurial Loki, the god of mischief and everyone’s favorite villain—received a huge welcome from fans when Feige brought him out on stage.
As many have guessed since the events of Avengers: Endgame, the show will follow Loki’s journey AFTER escaping with the Tesseract during the failed “Time Heist” at the battle of New York. So this isn’t the same Loki we’ve seen grow and change in the films.
What If? (Summer 2021)
Feige offered new information on “What If…?,” the first animated series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “What If…?” is being created exclusively for Disney+ and features stories that present alternate realities in the Marvel universe.
Feige mentioned that many actors from across the Marvel Cinematic Universe will reprise their roles as voice talent in the series. He then surprised the audience by bringing Jeffrey Wright to the stage and introducing him as the voice of the popular character The Watcher in the new series.
Hawkeye (Fall 2021)
Jeremy Renner came on stage and revealed the previously undisclosed title of the Hawkeye Disney+ original series. He joined Kevin Feige to give exciting news about “Hawkeye,” including details about Kate Bishop, a character well-known in Marvel comics, who will be an integral part of the series.
Even forgetting all of the other cool content coming to Disney+ (which launches this November), there’s a LOT of great content for Marvel fans to look forward to. Which of these new series are you most looking forward to seeing?
