After months of speculation and rumors, Disney+ has started confirming the Marvel content that is launching on the platform. Marvel added two brand-new series based on the current Marvel Cinematic Universe to the schedule. The first is “WandaVision” with Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, the duo will reprise their roles as Wanda Maximoff and The Vision, and Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan will reprise their roles in a separate show featuring Falcon and Winter Soldier. Disney+ did not confirm a release date at this time, but Marvel fans should be happy to hear about the two team-ups. These two series join the first Marvel series that was announced in 2018, a “Loki” spinoff starring Tom Hiddleston. There is also a “Hawkeye” series in the works with Jeremy Renner, which is later on down the road.
Feige was vague on the details since “Avengers: Endgame” is just around the corner, but did confirm that the show will deal with the universe after the events of that movie. That may mean everyone lives who has a spinoff, but you never know in the multi-verse world of comics where anything is possible.
While Disney stopped short of announcing a premiere date for Disney+ more Marvel content is expected to launch in the future. Most analysts agree that Disney will offer a subscription bundle based on the company’s wide-array of streaming services, but no confirmations were made at this time. If that turns out to be true, customers could save money when subscribing to Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+ under one membership.
The other good news is the turnaround time for streaming movies. Disney stated that all “Star Wars” films will be available to stream within the first year of Disney+, and that “Captain Marvel” will be streamable within the year.
