Marvel has been hard at work developing nine different shows for Disney+!
Although Disney+ is about to celebrate its first birthday, one of the staples for the streamer was supposed to be the slew of new Marvel television shows, yet none have made their debuts yet. We do have the coronavirus to blame for the long wait. But a plus side is, we now have nine announced tv shows to look forward to!
First up is WandaVision, the show will center on the Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen and Vision played by Paul Bettany. This series is inspired by classic TV sitcoms throughout the decades. Kathryn Hahn also stars as the classic “nosy neighbor” with something of her own to hide type. It also stars Teyonah Parris playing young hero Monica Rambeau who we first met as a child in Captain Marvel. It will debut December 2020.
Next will be The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson is the now the Captain after he inherited Captain America’s shield in Endgame. Debuting in 2021, it will follow Sam and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) as they battle the returning Civil War villain Helmut Zemo. In addition, returning to the Marvel universe is former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp), and Wyatt Russell joining the cast as the government supersoldier John Walker.
Also coming in 2021 will be Loki. That’s right, the trickster god will is getting his own show following Loki (Tom Hiddleston) through time and space. The new series will show what happened after he swiped the Tesseract in Endgame and disappeared? The cast also includes Sophia Di Martino, Owen Wilson, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
Next up, which not a lot of information, is Hawkeye. The only Avenger without his own film (after Black Widow finally is released. Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) will get his own series following the archer as he trains his young female protégée, Kate Bishop.
What If… asks Jeffrey Wright as the Watcher. Is is an animated anthology that asks the question of what would happen in the alternate realities in the Marvel universe — like what if Peggy Carter took the Captain America super serum instead? So far it has been teased that dozens of familiar Marvel heroes and villains alike will lend their voice to the series, including Josh Brolin, Karen Gillan, Jeff Goldblum, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael B. Jordan, Natalie Portman, Paul Rudd, and Mark Ruffalo.
Another low profile addition to the Marvel Television Universe is She-Hulk. Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany stars as Jennifer Walters, the brilliant-lawyer-turned-strong-and-green-superhero who also happens to be Bruce Banner’s cousin.
As we reported last week, Moon Knight is in early developments. Oscar Isaac is in talks to play the lunar hero.
Lastly, Ms. Marvel! Marvel’s first Muslim-American superhero will be played by newcomer Iman Vellani as the idealistic and geeky Kamala Khan. She’s a New Jersey high schooler who can morph her own body to fight crime.
