Last night in the Super Bowl Marvel Studios dropped a big surprise, a new teaser trailer for its three upcoming Disney+ streaming series: “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier,” “WandaVision” and “Loki.”
Up first is “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier” which starts Anthony Mackie as Sam “Falcon” Wilson and picks up shortly after ‘Endgame’ with Steve Rogers’ best friends learning to exist in a world where he is no longer Captain America. We like seeing Sam learning how to handle the Captain America shield that Rogers handed to him in Endgame. We also get a brief glimpse of Zemo, the bad guy returning from “Captain America: Civil War.”
The scenes from “WandaVision” feature Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany’s Vision interacting with each other in a house that appears to be wafting through various television shows. Sort of like a surreala sitcom, which is apparently a hint as to the theme of the show.
We don’t get much from “Loki” but we do get to see actor Tom Hiddleston back in the saddle over the iconic villain.
Just in case you missed it, or want to watch it again, we have the Disney+ Marvel TV series trailer here:
“The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” will release this fall and “WandaVision” was also moved up to a 2020 release date, to get it out in front of the ‘Doctor Strange’ sequel for which it will provide a lead-in.
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.
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.
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.
We love how WandaVision looks and are excited for the continuation of Falcon’s story as he takes on the shield of Captain America.
The question is will Marvel Studios be able to provide a lift to Disney+ in the same way that Star Wars: The Mandalorian did. Marvel Studios has already announced even more titles coming to Disney+ including shows featuring Hawkeye, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Moonknight.
We know it’s hard to choose, but which of the first three Marvel Studios streaming series are you looking forward to the most?
