When Will ‘The Falcon and The Winter Soldier’ Premiere on Disney+?
When Disney announced that it would release its own streaming service, many weren’t very pleased. Between Netflix, Hulu, and now DC Universe, it seems like the subscriptions just keep adding up. But Disney is going out of its way to make it worth the effort.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is one of the shows being released soon that will tempt viewers into signing up, along with a few other Marvel shows. Here’s what we know about all the MCU shows hitting Disney+, courtesy of Screen Rant.
‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’
Fans were thrilled to learn that Marvel planned to continue Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes’ story, but there are a lot of things we still don’t know.
What we do know is that Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan will be reprising their roles. The show will take place after Avengers: Endgame, and in spite of the title, Sam Wilson will not be the Falcon. Steve Rogers passed on his legendary shield, so Sam will now be Captain America.
It’s also been hinted that Bucky Barnes will play a new role as well. The Winter Soldier left a lot of dead bodies in his wake and created a lot of bad blood between the Avengers. By becoming the White Wolf, Bucky will finally get the chance to move on from the role that he never wanted.
The duo won’t have much time to get comfortable in their new roles, however, since Baron Zemo is back, and this time, they won’t have the entire Avenger team to back them up.
Unfortunately we don’t know what Baron Zemo is up to. Considering he tricked the Avengers into tearing themselves apart, his plan is definitely going to test the duo.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier starring Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie will be released sometime in Fall 2020.
The relationship between the Scarlet Witch and Vision is one that felt a little underdeveloped in the MCU, which is a shame. It wasn’t a passionate, fiery relationship, but it felt right, and some fans were left wanting more.
Marvel may be remedying this with WandaVision. We don’t have many details yet, but it’s sure to explore the relationship between these two characters in more depth than we’ve seen before on screen.
WandaVision is set to hit Disney+ in Spring 2021.
While Loki may be a villain, fans fell in love with Tom Hiddleston’s portrayal of him.
According to RadioTimes, “Speaking at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel supremo Kevin Feige confirmed that the series would follow the younger Loki who escaped during the time-travel segment of Avengers: Endgame, following the death of the older “prime” Loki in Avengers: Infinity War.”
This new and younger Loki may be up to his old tricks by influencing several historical events beginning in 1975.
Loki will hit Disney+ sometime in Spring 2021.
Second half of 2021
In Infinity War, Doctor Strange saw over 14 million potential futures. The unexplored futures have been plaguing fans ever since, and has sparked debates all over the internet. Given the sheer number of futures, it’s possible that all the ideas thrown out there could be correct, which makes What If…? all the more interesting.
According to CNET, unlike the other MCU shows, this one will be animated. Some of the futures that may be explored include Peggy Carter becoming Captain America and Steve Rogers becoming Iron Man. Another, more frightening future, could be a Captain America zombie.
The only bad thing about this show is that it doesn’t hit Disney+ until Summer 2021.
Out of all the original Avengers, Clint Barton is the one that we know the least about. We know that he has a family and recruited the Black Widow, but that’s about all.
Now we’ll finally get the chance to learn more about him.
Like most of the upcoming Marvel films and shows, we don’t have much information, but we know that Clint will once again reprise his role as Hawkeye. Looper reports that the show will most likely take place after Endgame, and Barton will pass his bow on to Kate Bishop.
Whether this has to do with the fact that he wants to retire to be with his family is not clear. He will most likely face off against the Russian mob group the Tracksuit Draculas, and they probably aren’t going to give him much time to watch his son’s baseball game.
Hawkeye will be hitting the small screen in Fall 2021.
