As we learn more and more news about the upcoming Marvel shows on Disney+, Fangirlish wants to make it easier for the franchise fans 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 two weeks about all of our upcoming favorite Marvel Studios shows, like WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and Loki.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
We’ll start with the usuals. Marvel Studios is creating a bit of a pattern for their Disney+ shows. There are new character posters and fan-made posters on the show’s official social media and new featurettes. As always, there are new Marvel Must Haves, including a Sharon Carter (!!!) Funko Pop.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier doesn’t have a new theme song every week. It does have an epic, end-credits song composed by the legendary Henry Jackman. The song “Louisiana Hero,” dedicated to Sam, is available now. Marvel.com shared that the song will be followed by two digital soundtrack releases — the first on April 9th and the second on April 30th.
Next comes all the celebratory, behind-the-scenes posts on the cast’s Instagram accounts. Sebastian Stan, Erin Kellyman, Desmond Chiam (seen as Dovich), and Olli Haaskivi (seen as Dr. Nagel) are just a few of the cast members with pictures you have to check out.
Now that we’re halfway through TFATWS, there are multitudes of interviews with the cast and crew discussing the show. Like WandaVision, it would be impossible to convey a cohesive, proper list of all of them for you to enjoy, but we encourage you to seek them out if you’re interested. An excellent place to start is BBC Radio 1’s closer look at Mackie and Stan‘s careers.
Alternatively, we will try to bring you the interviews gaining the most traction because of the peaks behind the curtain they entail. For example, Daniel Brühl shared that he improvised two of the funniest moments from The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Episode 3, “Power Broker.” Brühl told Entertainment Weekly that Zemo’s iconic dance at Sharon’s party was improvised and much longer than we see on screen. Marvel Studios shared the extended version on Twitter. Then, he told The Hollywood Reporter that he improvised the moment when Zemo caresses Bucky’s chin. Daniel Brühl is a comedic genius, and the MCU is lucky to have him.
As for the last three episodes of TFATWS, there are still some twists and turns ahead. Head writer Malcolm Spellman told Rotten Tomatoes that there’s a character in Episode 5 that he would want to go up against Thor. That character could be the Power Broker since we still don’t know their identity.
Emily VanCamp spoke to Variety about the possibility of Sharon being the Power Broker and said, “Well, that’s a good question. I mean, the Power Broker could be anybody. Also, there are several characters that have yet to be seen.” Marvel Studios teams are skilled at dodging spoilers, so take this information as you will.
Before we even get to Episode 5, Stan teased that Episode 4’s strong ending in terms of what’s coming next in a recent interview with MTV Asia. That means by the time you’re reading this round-up, you’ll know what Stan referenced.
You’re probably well aware that Marvel Studios released the first official trailer and brand new photos for Loki. If you’re not, we’ve got your back with this round-up. You can check out this write-up that includes all of the Loki news you need to know.
Additionally, Empire Magazine (that’s already given WandaVision and TFATWS their very own covers) announced it would be doing the same for our favorite trickster. The cover featuring Tom Hiddleston arrives April 15th, so keep checking Empire‘s socials and our round-ups for updates on that.
