Kevin Feige Promises Major Storylines For Marvel’s Disney Plus Shows
While Marvel Studios is currently keeping quiet on their film plans beyond this month’s Avengers: Endgame, producer Kevin Feige is already teasing the various small screen adventures lined up for the MCU.
During a presentation for investors last Thursday, the Marvel Studios head explained how the upcoming Disney Plus shows will deliver important stories that resonate across the fictional universe.
“These will be both new and continuing stories,” Feige said. “These will be major storylines set in the MCU with ramifications that will be felt both through the other Disney+ series we’ll be producing and the future on the big screen.”
Feige’s statements came in the midst of a big week for Disney Plus reveals. During the same presentation, for example, it was announced that WandaVision will be the title of the upcoming miniseries starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany. Feige described the show’s story as “unexpected and surprising,” before adding that it was only something they could do in a longform series.
The event also confirmed the title of Falcon and Winter Soldier, which will see Captain America’s two friends team up for an adventure penned by Empire’s Malcolm Spellman. And while Feige has yet to mention the project, a Hawkeye TV show starring Jeremy Renner was reported by Variety on Wednesday.
Though a premiere date has yet to be announced for any of these shows, Disney Plus is set to launch on November 12th of this year. According to The Hollywood Reporter, WandaVision and the Loki series are both part of the platform’s year two slate, while Falcon and Winter Soldier is set for year one, suggesting that it will be the first of Marvel’s Disney Plus shows to come out. Of course, the question still remains of how exactly Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes are back in the world of the living, but our answer will surely come when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th.
