Super Bowl LIV Hangover: Did You See the MCU Announcements?!

During last night’s “big game” Disney and Marvel Studios offered the first look at a trio of new shows coming to Disney+. The spot gave viewers their first look at The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Wandavision, and Loki. 

 

Look for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Wandavision to be released later in 2020 and Loki be released some time in 2021.

 

Take a look at the “big game” spot below:

The 30-second spot offers very brief glimpses of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision and Loki, the first two of which are set to premiere on Disney+ this year. Loki, starring Tom Hiddleston as the Asgardian character he’s played for the better part of the decade, is due in 2021.

These Disney+ shows will connect to the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with characters moving from the big screen to the small — and vice versa. Other series in the works include one starring Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, as well as shows focusing on characters such as She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight. 

 

MORE ABOUT THE NEW DISNEY+ SERIES:

 

THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER

Following the events of “Avengers: Endgame,” Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) team up in a global adventure that tests their abilities—and their patience—in Marvel Studios’ “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.” The all-new series is directed by Kari Skogland; Malcolm Spellman is the head writer. Debuts on Disney+ this fall.

 

WANDAVISION

Marvel Studios’ “WandaVision” blends the style of classic sitcoms with the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany)—two super-powered beings living their ideal suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems. The new series is directed by Matt Shakman; Jac Schaeffer is head writer. Debuts on Disney+ this year.

 

LOKI

In Marvel Studios’ “Loki,” the mercurial villain Loki (Tom Hiddleston) resumes his role as the God of Mischief in a new series that takes place after the events of “Avengers: Endgame.” Kate Herron directs and Michael Waldron is head writer. Debuts on Disney+ next year—2021.
