'WandaVision,' 'Loki,' 'Hawkeye', 'She-Hulk' and more: A look at Marvel's Phase 4 shows set to appear on Disney+
From the silver screen to the small one, Disney+ is the new home to all-new stories set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After a number of failed starts with series like 'Agents of SHIELD' and 'The Defenders,' the MCU is finally becoming a television affair proper, with half of Marvel's Phase 4 taking place on their television shows. We've got a list of everything that Marvel has in the works for its television slate.
Release Date: January 15, 2021
Starring Elizabeth Olson and Paul Bettany as, respectively, Scarlet Witch and the Vision, the series launches Marvel's Disney+ television event. Following the events of 'Avengers: Endgame,' the Scarlet Witch appears to be using her reality-warping powers to bring the Vision back to life, resulting in a sitcom-like reality where they can be a happy couple together. It's not long, however, before this reality starts to fray.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
Release Date: March 19, 2021
After Captain America (Chris Evans) retired to the past, there's a void missing where America's symbol of heroism once stood. Steve Rogers' closest allies, Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and James "Bucky" Barnes (Sebastian Stan) team up to try and fill the gap Cap left behind as a new terrorist organization rises.
Release Date: May 2021
Following a time-travel mishap and the theft of the Tessaract, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) finds himself taken in and forced to work for the Time Variance Authority. There, the god of lies and trickery will be forced to try and correct deviations in the timeline before the frayed fabric of reality unravels entirely.
Release Date: Mid-2021
The MCU's first foray into animation sees familiar heroes in iconic moments of MCU history, only where one vital question is asked - what if things went a slightly different way? The series features alternate takes on various Marvel legends, as each episode examines a moment that's slightly altered, and the consequences of that going forth.
Release Date: Late-2021
Starring Iman Vellani as the titular Ms. Marvel/Kamala Khan, the series introduces an all-new teen superhero to the MCU. When a mysterious mist unlocks her Inhuman potential, Kamala Khan, inspired by Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), dons her own superhero persona to save the streets of New Jersey – all while juggling the struggles and responsibilities of being a young Muslim girl in America.
Release Date: Late-2021.
Starring Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, and introducing Haley Steinfeld as the next Hawkeye, Kate Bishop, the series is a look into the life of the Avengers' purple archer and his new young protege - also featuring the return of Florence Pugh as Yelena Bolova/Black Widow from the 'Black Widow' movie.
Release Date: 2022.
With little information as to plot or starring roles, 'Moon Knight' is the story of Marc Spector, and archaeologist who is chosen by the Egyptian moon god Khonsu to be a protector of the night. There's one important twist, however - Marc Spector isn't the most mentally stable man, as a dissasociated identity disorder means that Marc Spector isn't the only persona living in Marc's head.
Release Date: 2022.
Tatiana Maslany stars as lawyer Jennifer Walters, the cousin of Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) who needs a blood transfusion from a family member - and Bruce is the only one available. This has the side-effect of turning Jennifer into another version of the Hulk, but one with much more control over her mind while Hulked-out. The series also sees Tim Roth reprise his role as Emil Blonsky/The Abomination.
