PHOTOS: New Details Released on Marvel Series Coming to Disney+, Including “What If…?,” “Loki,” “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” and “WandaVision”
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is expanding to Disney+, and today, we got some more details about some of the shows that are coming to the new streaming service.
“What If…?” is the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first animated series, showing what would’ve happened if key events in the MCU had gone differently. And sure enough, a lot of your favorite stars from the MCU are coming back to reprise their characters, including Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Hayley Atwell, Chadwick Boseman, Samuel L. Jackson, Josh Brolin, and more.
Here’s one scenario that was discussed: What if Steve Rogers didn’t get the super-soldier serum that made him Captain America, and instead it went to Peggy Carter?
As if she couldn’t get any more awesome. “What If…?” premieres on Disney+ in Summer 2021.
We also learned slightly more about “Loki,” the series starring Tom Hiddleston in his beloved role from the MCU. The series will be six hours long, though we don’t know how many episodes that will be broken up over. “Loki” premieres on Disney+ in Spring 2021.
A little bit more was declassified about “The Falcon and the Winter Solder,” which sees Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, and Daniel Brühl reprise their roles as Sam Wilson, Bucky Barnes, and Helmut Zemo. “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” will focus not only on these characters’ pasts, but their lives in the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame. Emily VanCamp will also reprise her role as Sharon Carter, aka Agent 13, as seen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War. A new character will also emerge named John Walker, though we learned nothing more about them. “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” premieres on Disney+ starting Fall 2020.
And finally, at least for the previously announced shows, was “WandaVision.” “WandaVision” stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprising their roles as Wanda Maximoff (aka Scarlet Witch) and the Vision, respectively. The show will be a half-classic sitcom, half-MCU adventure, evoking the style of television of the 50’s and 60’s. Shooting hasn’t begun yet on the series, but we learned more about casting, as there are more MCU characters joining the series, including Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis (Thor, Thor: The Dark World) and Randall Park as Jimmy Woo (Ant-Man and the Wasp). Kathryn Hahn will also be joining the show as a nosy neighbor. “WandaVision” premieres on Disney+ in Spring 2021.
