Following the events of the Infinity Saga, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is moving forward full speed ahead. The upcoming streaming platform Disney+ is proving to be a powerhouse and Marvel is taking full advantage of it to showcase more of their vast slate of characters.
On Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Feige revealed more details and new logos for multiple Disney+ shows.
First up will be The Falcon and the Winter Soldier in Fall 2020. Starring Anthony Mackie as The Falcon and Sebastian Stan at The Winter Soldier, Marvel shocked the audience with the news that it will include Daniel Brühl as Baron Zemo. Captured after the events of 2016 Captain America: Civil War, Zemo will return with his iconic purple mask from the comics.
In Spring 2021 we have Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany as Vision in WandaVision. Most notably, this series will feature the adult Monica Rambeau played by Teyonah Parris. We recently met young Monica earlier this year in Captain Marvel. While discussing the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness it was revealed that WandaVision will be connected.
If you haven’t picked it up already, I highly recommend preparing for WandaVision by checking out the 2015 Eisner Award-winning comic “The Vision” by Tom King. It’s a must read with incredible nuances and meaningful deep themes.
Also releasing in Spring 2021 we have Tom Hiddleston returning in Loki. Kicking off from the moment Loki stole the Space Stone in Avengers: Endgame, viewers will follow the adventures god of mischief himself.
Summer 2021 will bring the first MCU animated series, What If…?. Talent across the MCU films will be returning to voice their characters for the series, and it was revealed that Jeffrey Wright will be the voice of The Watcher. The Watchers were most recently seen in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Stan Lee’s iconic cameo scene confirmed the fan theory that Lee is a Watcher.
In Fall 2021 we have Jeremy Renner returning for Hawkeye. It was teased Kate Bishop and Ronin will both be showcased in this series. With the same colors and logo, this series clearly has connections to one of the greatest comics on the characters, Matt Fraction and David Aja’s “Hawkeye.”
