Marvel Studios’ Disney+ shows will be an extension of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, more so than what Marvel Television has been in the past. These shows will be directly connected to the MCU. Some might even lead into films, like WandaVision. The series will bring back Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany as Vision.
Based on what we’ve heard in the past, the series will have a ’50s vibe to it. At the time, it was unclear what that meant. However, while at the D23 Expo Kevin Feige and director Matt Shakman, as well as Olsen and Bettany, took to the stage to give attendees an idea of what to expect and share a few more surprises as well. Like the additions of Kat Dennings (Thor) and Randall Park (Ant-Man and the Wasp), both of whom will be reprising their respective roles as Darcy and Agent Jimmy Woo. More on the report below.
When WandaVision was first announced as a show that would appear only on Disney+, Disney’s exclusive streaming service, many wondered when and where the story following Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) would take place.
Well, we really can’t expect to get any answers from Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, who was at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about the upcoming series. However, he did drop a few hints about the tone of the show and how it will fit into the MCU. More on all of this below.
For a long time, we’ve heard about how the Marvel Cinematic Universe will expand into television on Disney’s streaming subscription service, Disney+. One of the first shows to be announced was Loki, which would star Tom Hiddleston as the titular character on a show that would have Quantum Leap vibes. Next up, Falcon and Winter Soldier, and Scarlet Witch and Vision. These would focus on these pairs in new stories that would take place after Avengers: Endgame. Additionally, there would be Marvel Studios’ first animated show called What If, and the newly announced Hawkeye show that will bring back Jeremy Renner to play the title character who will teach Kate Bishop how to be an Avengers archer.
Now, during an investors meeting, Disney confirmed that Falcon and Winter Soldier, and the Scarlet Witch and Vision show which is now being called WandaVision, are being added to their Marvel Studios television lineup. More on the report below.
We’ve always known Star Wars and Marvel would be a big part of Disney’s streaming service, which will be called Disney Play. But it’s not just going to be a bunch of existing movies, there’s going to be original content as well. We know that multiple original Star Wars series are currently being developed, including one with Iron Man director Jon Favreau involved. We also know that these series will not be cheap to produce.
Now we’re starting to see what’s in the works on the Marvel side of things. It’s being reported that Disney is developing multiple Marvel series revolving around various characters such as Loki, Scarlet Witch, and other characters who haven’t received their own standalone movies.
