Marvel on Disney+ News Round-Up: Release Dates & ‘Loki’ Casting

As we learn more and more news about the upcoming Marvel shows on Disney+, Fangirlish wanted to make it easier for fans of the franchise to get up to date on all the things they need to know.

This biweekly round-up includes some of the biggest and most fun news from the last week or so about all of our upcoming favorite Marvel shows, like WandaVisionThe Falcon and the Winter Solider, and Loki.

“Big Game” Spot

Of course we have to start with the game-changing teaser we got during the Super Bowl. We already broke down the details of the teaser, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t rewatched it a million and one times.

It’s still hard to believe we have actual footage of not only The Falcon and the Winter Solider and WandaVision but also Loki. It’s all becoming real, and we cannot wait for what’s to come.

May of the Marvel actors shared the teaser on their Instagram accounts to elevate the excitement even more. Did you see Sebastian Stan, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, and Tom Hiddleston’s posts?

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier

Christine Dinh reported that for Marvel.com during The Walt Disney Company’s Q1 FY20 Earnings call, Bob Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer revealed TFATWS will start streaming sometime in August 2020.

Dinh also reported on the official description of TFATWS:

Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) team up in a global adventure that tests their abilities—and their patience—in Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. The series also welcomes the return of Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter and Daniel Brühl as the villain, Zemo, plus the addition of Wyatt Russell who will be playing John Walker, a character that most comic book fans will recognize. The all-new series is directed by Kari Skogland; Malcolm Spellman is the head writer. Debuts on Disney+ this fall.

The description is likely vague to keep fans on their toes before the series starts streaming. However, Sebastian Stan shared a few more TFATWS teasers on his Instagram. The day after the Super Bowl trailer, Stan shared an official still from TFATWS.

Of course this photo sparks a lot of theories, like if the two men could be in a school. This would tie to what we can see of US Agent in the Super Bowl teaser.

Stan didn’t stop there. He also shared a quick BTS photo on his Instagram stories. Luckily, fans captured it before it disappeared.

We wonder who is calling Bucky White Wolf on TFATWS, considering a only a few children from Wakanda called him this during Black Panther’s post-credits scene. No one else in the MCU’s following films has called Bucky Barnes “White Wolf.” This leaves a lot to the imagination, and we will surely be thinking of all the theories possible.

WandaVision

During that same Walt Disney call, Bog Iger also confirmed WandaVision’s December 2020 release. With TFATWS’s release in August, Eternals premiere in November, and WandaVision, Marvel fans will have so much content to keep up with.

Luckily, Fangirlish will be here to keep you up to date. here is WandaVision’s official description:

Marvel Studios’ WandaVision blends the style of classic sitcoms with the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany)—two super-powered beings living their ideal suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems. The new series is directed by Matt Shakman; Jac Schaeffer is head writer. Debuts on Disney+ this year.

We couldn’t be more excited to see Wanda and Vision live their ideal suburban lives. WandaVision is going to be as bizarre as it is wonderful. We don’t know how we’re going to wait until December, even with all the other Marvel projects.

Loki

We have much more Loki news to discuss than we did two weeks ago. Let’s start with the official description:

In Marvel Studios’ Loki, the mercurial villain Loki (Tom Hiddleston) resumes his role as the God of Mischief in a new series that takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Kate Herron directs and Michael Waldron is head writer. Debuts on Disney+ next year—2021.

We can tell from the Super Bowl teaser that Loki is up to some things that can definitely be qualified as mischief, so he’s living up to his name wherever – or whenever – he may be in the timeline.

Thanks to some new casting news, we know some actors who will be joining Tom Hiddleston and the previously confirmed Sophia Di Martino on the show.

Deadline reported Owen Wilson (Zoolander) and Variety reported Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Black Mirror) are joining the cast as major characters whose identities are being kept under wraps. Even though we don’t have much to go on with their characters, we are excited to see the Loki cast growing.

We can only hope this means we will get more Loki content before the end of the year.
