While news about upcoming Marvel movies stole most of the spotlight at San Diego Comic Con just a few days ago, Marvel president Kevin Feige also dropped some big news about the company’s new TV shows coming exclusively to the Disney+ platform.
The stories and characters from Disney+ shows will indeed be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so if you want to be fully up to date when the new movies hit theaters, you’ll need a streaming subscription. In an interview with ComicBook.com, Captain Marvel producer Mary Livanos noted that the shows “will directly affect the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in some very real ways.” Feige even added that “we want to do something that’s going to stand right alongside the MCU films and will be completely intertwined, and the story and the characters will go back and forth between Disney Plus programming and the films.”
As far as when we can expect the new shows, here’s a rundown:
- Fall 2020: Falcon & Winter Soldier (Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan)
- Spring 2021: Loki (Tom Hiddleston)
- Spring 2021: WandaVision (Elizabeth Olsen)
- Summer 2021: What If…? animated series (Chris Hemsworth, Josh Brolin, Chadwick Boseman and more)
- Fall 2021: Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner)
Marvel also dropped official logos and more info for all the shows on its official blog.
Disney is investing very heavily in its new streaming service, making it the home of all their properties, including Star Wars, Avengers, Pixar, and more. And of course, all Disney classic and current films. With its debut just a few months away, the service is looking like a must-have, especially with its rock-bottom $6.99 a month price point.
