After proving they can blow fans away with The Mandalorian, anticipation for Disney’s upcoming live-action Marvel Cinematic Universe series has reached an all-time high.
Set to begin this summer with the premiere of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, the Mouse House is set to release four original series on their marquee streaming service between now and the end of 2021: The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, Hawkeye, and the animated anthology series What If…?.
After first being announced this summer, MCU fans across the globe were given their first taste of this upcoming highly-anticipated series when Disney dropped the first quick commercial during Sunday’s Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Fransisco 49ers.
While the teaser — which lets fans know that “the universe is expanding” — does not include glimpses of Hawkeye or What If…?, the trailer does provide an awesome first look at the apparent buddy-cop series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, the bonker-seeming acid trip that is WandaVision, and a quick taste of the upcoming Loki solo series.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will be the first of the live-action Disney+ series to debut when it airs this August. Then, in the Spring of 2021, WandaVision — which has been described as “part classic sitcom, part Marvel epic” by MCU head Kevin Feige — hits the streamer. Additionally, that same spring, Loki and What If…? will also premiere. Finally, in the Fall of 2021, Hawkeye will debut.
Of the upcoming ten projects MCU’s “Phase 4”, five of them will be housed on Disney+, which now makes the streaming service integral for all fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
