Disney + to stream Marvel series Winter Soldier, Falcon, Vision and Scarlet Witch
Also in development are miniseries of Loki and Hawkeye. The series were officialy confirmed by Disney and will be available on Disney +, the streaming service that will go live on November 2019.
'Avengers: Endgame' may be the final movie of the Infinity Saga, but for some of the characters, it's just the beginning. Disney confirmed new spin-off shows for some of the characters that would be an integral part of the fourth phase of the MCU. They will be part of its streaming service Disney + that will be unveiled on November 12 this year. What makes this interesting is that the characters who get their own show were the ones disintegrated by Thanos' snap in 'Infinity War.' Take a look.
Hawkeye may hang around a little longer
Recently, it was announced that Hawkeye will get his own miniseries and the plot would revolve around Clint Barton (Hawkeye, played by Jeremy Renner) and his young apprentice Kate Bishop, to whom he is to pass on his baton, who incidentally is part of the second 'Endgame' trailer.
Does this mean that Barton will be one of the last men standing at the end of the battle with Thanos? If so, it shouldn't come as a surprise since Barton has been part of two Avengers outings and his presence in Endgame will be the third time that he will be reprising the role of Hawkeye. But, it also not confirmed if the series will take place before the snap and Hawkeye may leave young Kate Bishop to take over the mantle while he goes into his 'Ronin' avatar.
If this theory does hold true, then the series will serve as a jumping off point for the character and focus more on Bishop, his young protegee. While she hasn't appeared in the MCU so far, the tease in the trailer may introduce her at some point in the movie. If the series were to follow the plotline of Fraction and Aja's Hawkeye, where the focus is on the teacher and the student, Renner may just be around post the Thanos vs Avengers showdown.
We haven't seen the last of Loki yet
Yes. We know. Loki was choked to death by Thanos within 15 minutes of the start of 'Infinity War.' And Tom Hiddleston, the man who played the God of Mischief, himself has confirmed that he may not be coming back this time. So, when Disney announced that Loki will get his own miniseries, we are sure that the show will deal with the origin of the character. While we know that Loki is Jotunheim (The Frost Giants), the spin-off may give us a story of Loki's adventures before being adopted by Odin.
Falcon and Winter Soldier are back
Titled 'Falcon and Winter Soldier,' the show is another confirmation or rather a major spoiler that the duo who were team Cap in the 'Civil War' and were fighting side-by-side in Wakanda will be brought back after being snapped in 'Infinity War.' The first time we see Falcon, aka Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), was in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' who gets his Falcon suit back from Fort Meade with Rogers' and Romanoff's assistance. He also goes on to become one of Cap's trusted allies before being one of the Avengers to be a victim of Thanos's snap.
The Winter Soldier aka Bucky Barnes, Cap's close friend and a former HYDRA brainwashed spy, will be part of the series too and is one of the 'dead characters.' Not for long though.
Which actually poses an important question. Will Captain America not die? And even he does, who will take up the shield?
The other possible theory is that the two might just refuse to take over the mantle, instead, team up to fight and ward off the threats to the world, while assisting the new/young Avengers in their battles.
Scarlet Witch and Vision
Titled 'Wandavision,' the series is yet about two characters who haven't had ample screentime. Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch (Elisabeth Olsen) and Vision (formerly J.A.R.V.I.S, played by Paul Bettany) who too were snap victims.
Whether the series traces the journey of the duo between 'Civil War' and 'Infinity War' or will it be a new plot point in lead-up to the new Avengers remains to be seen. Details surrounding 'WandaVision' still remain slim, the series is expected to be directed by 'Black Widow' writer Jac Schaeffer.
And that's what Disney + has in store for all Marvel fans in the months to come. Watch this space for more updates.
