Starting with Phase 4, Marvel Studios is producing multiple TV shows on Disney+. These will not only be set in the Marvel universe, but they will be tied to what's happening on the big screen.
So while previous series like Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Daredevil acknowledged the goings-on in the movies every now and then, these upcoming shows will intersect with the narrative of the blockbusters, making them pretty much mandatory viewing for any serious Marvel fan.
Thankfully, it will be easy to keep up with these new releases, as they're scheduled to drop on streaming service Disney+ over the next few years. We have a quick rundown of every TV title you should look forward to. Some are based around established characters, while others are set to introduce new ones. Read on to find out more.
The first show that will become available revolves around household names. WandaVision will star Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as, well, Wanda and Vision. Details concerning the plot are currently kept under wraps, but WandaVision seems to be a surreal series that partially takes place inside Scarlet Witch's mind. As you might remember, Vision died in Avengers: Infinity War.
Rumour has it that Wanda created a dream-family version of her life with Vision to cope with the loss. The cast also includes Kathryn Hahn, Randall Park, Kat Dennings and Teyonah Parris. WandaVision will premiere on Disney+ on 15 January 2021.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier sees Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan reprising their roles from the franchise. The action will take place in the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame, so after Captain America retired and passed on his shield to Falcon.
The cast also includes Emily Van Camp as Sharon Carter and Daniel Brühl as Helmut Zemo, who you might remember from Captain America: Civil War. As for new faces, Wyatt Russell will play John Walker, who in the comics was a villain. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will debut on 19 March 2021.
While both The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and WandaVision are set after Avengers: Endgame, Loki offers a different approach. The series, which sees Tom Hiddleston reprise his role as the God of Mischief, will follow Loki as he travels through history and tries to influence events, most likely to his advantage.
The show will feature the version of Loki that escaped with the Tesseract in Endgame, so before he got that entire redemption arc in Thor: Ragnarok and Infinity War. Owen Wilson was also cast in the show, as were Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Sophia Di Martino. Loki is expected to be released on Disney+ in May 2021.
The only new animated Marvel show announced so far, What If…? is an adaptation of the comics that ran under the same name, which imagine what would have happened if certain scenarios in the Marvel universe played out differently.
For instance, what would have happened if Peggy Carter took the super-soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers? Jeffrey Wright will voice the Watcher or the narrator of the new series, while most of the MCU actors are set to voice their own characters. The list includes Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Chadwick Boseman and Hayley Atwell. What If…? will premiere sometime in mid-2021.
The Hawkeye limited series will see Jeremy Renner reprise his role of Hawkeye and will also star Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop, Young Avenger extraordinaire. Not much else is known about the series so far, except that it will premiere on Disney+ sometime in late 2021.
In the comics, Ms. Marvel is the superhero alter-ego of Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American teen with shapeshifting abilities who discovers that she has Inhuman genes. In the show, Iman Vellani stars as Kamala Khan AKA Ms. Marvel. The cast also includes Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Naki, Azher Usman, Travina Springer and Nimra Bucha.
According to the official synopsis, Kamala is a great student, an avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, with a special affinity for superheroes, particularly Captain Marvel. But Kamala struggles to fit in at home and at school – that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she's always looked up to. The series will premiere sometime in late 2021.
Not a lot of details about Moon Knight are available just yet, but we do know that the series will be based on the comic book character of the same name. A former mercenary, he has a vast fortune and a multiple-personality disorder. The multiple identities who live inside him are distinct characters who appear against a backdrop of Egyptian iconography.
The series will be directed by Mohamed Diab. Moon Knight is often referred to as Marvel's answer to Batman, so it will be interesting to see who gets cast in the main role. A premiere date for the series hasn't been announced yet.
In the comics, She-Hulk is the alter ego of Jennifer Walters, Bruce Banner's cousin. She ends up with abilities of her own after needing a blood transfusion from Bruce. Consequently, Walters becomes a large, powerful green-hued version of herself, while still maintaining her personality.
Disney confirmed that Tatiana Maslany will star as She-Hulk/Jennifer Walters and that the show will be a comedy. Additionally, She-Hulk will welcome a host of Marvel characters to the series, including the Hulk played by Mark Ruffalo and the Abomination played by Tim Roth.
Secret Invasion will star Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull Talos, two characters fans first met in Captain Marvel. The series will revolve around a faction of shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years. No other details have been released yet.
Iron Heart will star Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams, a genius inventor who creates the most advanced suit of armour since Iron Man. Unfortunately, that's all the official information available so far.
Based on the classic Marvel comic series, Armor Wars will centre on James Rhodes AKA War Machine, played by Don Cheadle. The show will follow the character as he deals with the fallout of Tony Stark's tech falling into the wrong hands.
Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special
As the title suggests, this will be a holiday special, but no other details are available. We can confirm that Guardians of the Galaxy veteran James Gunn will write and direct the special, which is slated to premiere sometime during the 2022 holiday season.
I Am Groot
I Am Groot will star everyone's favourite baby tree in a series of original shorts. We're guessing the shorts will be… short on dialogue, but otherwise there's nothing we know for sure about the upcoming series just yet.
