Falcon, Winter Soldier, Loki, Scarlett Witch and Vision will all return for Disney+ shows
Just hours after we brought you news of the proposed Hawkeye TV series heading to the new Disney+ streaming service, the house of mouse took to the stage at a special investors presentation to announce details regarding its other Marvel shows set to debut on the service.
First up is the series focussing on Scarlet Witch (aka Wanda Maximoff) and The Vision. Both Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen have been confirmed as returning to their iconic roles for the series which is aptly named “WandaVision”. The series is being run by Captain Marvel and the upcoming Black Widow movie scribe Jac Schaffer, who will also write the inaugural episode of the show.
Another team-up confirmed during the presentation was the highly anticipated collaboration between Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier and Sam Wilson/Falcon. The duo’s rapport sprang to prominence during Captain America: The Winter Soldier as they will continue their misadventures in “Falcon And Winter Soldier”.
Both Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan have been confirmed to reprise their roles and the logo for the show can be seen below: (Apologies for the poor quality)
Furthermore, a series based upon the God of Mischief, Loki starring Tom Hiddleston has been given the green light which will complete the first full slate of Marvel shows for the streaming service. Other series have been proposed but are yet to be confirmed, but Clint Barton/Hawkeye’s solo series is leading the charge to make it to the screen as part of Disney’s second wave.
No further information was disclosed, but just having these awesome shows confirmed represents a clear statement of intent from Disney who will be offering their service to consumers for the monthly cost of $6.99. Disney+ is expected to roll out across the United States from November 12th and will reach Western Europe early in 2020.
Stay tuned to The Future of the Force for updates as they emerge.
