The Marvel Cinematic Universe is coming to Disney+ with original content courtesy of several high-profile series, but MCU fans have been left wondering when to expect these projects to debut on the streaming service. The streamer's Super Bowl commercial provided the first good looks at WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki without any news about the premieres. Fortunately, Disney+ finally provided some answers. Here's what we know.
Disney boss Bob Iger addressed investors in the conference call for Disney's first quarter results, during which he confirmed when to count on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and WandaVision.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, starring Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon and Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, is set for August 2020, so Disney+ fans have a high-profile series to look forward to while waiting for The Mandalorian Season 2 with a new fix of Baby Yoda.
WandaVision, starring Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany as Vision, will leave MCU fans hanging a little longer for explanations about the classic TV eras the show seems to be referencing. WandaVision debuts in December. While that's still the better part of a year from Bob Iger's announcement, a December 2020 release is an improvement on the original expected release in spring 2021.
So, that leaves the question of Loki: when will the miniseries starring Tom Hiddleston as the god of mischief (along with a wild costar) hit the streamer? Although Hiddleston is working on the series at the moment (and looking a little rusty), Bob Iger did not mention a premiere window for Loki. The show was previously expected at some point in 2021; beyond that, fans can only speculate.
While a solid answer about Loki would have undoubtedly been reassuring to MCU fans (especially since another high-profile Disney+ series was pushed back), at least there is confirmation of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and WandaVision in 2020. Bob Iger also revealed that The Mandalorian Season 2 will arrive in October, which is earlier than the Season 1 premiere date in November 2019.
Based on this latest news, Disney+ may be the place to be in the second half of 2020, although the upcoming premiere of The Clone Wars Season 7 guarantees that one of Disney's biggest franchises won't go without original small screen content in the near future.
With the streamer already packed with content, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in August, The Mandalorian Season 2 with Baby Yoda presumably in tow in October, and WandaVision in December, this is a good time to check out Disney+ with a 7-day free trial.
