Marvel bigwig Kevin Feige has outlined what’s coming up in phase four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which spills over into their ever more interconnected TV projects.
In that department, here’s a quick rundown of what’s in the works, with current air dates where available:
– WandaVision 15/1/21
– The Falcon and the Winter Soldier 19/3/21 – this one’s being billed as “a movie over six episodes”.
– Loki 5/21 – Tom Hiddleston returns, Owen Wilson, Richard E Grant also star in what is being billed as a “crime thriller”. Here’s a very fun preview:
– What If…? – an animated series that will take classic MCU events and riffs on them. Here’s a peek:
– Ms Marvel – late 2021
– Hawkeye – late 2021 – Jeremy Renner returns.
– Moon Knight – 2022
– She Hulk – Tatiana Maslany stars, alongside Tim Roth as Abomination, and Mark Ruffalo will appear.
– Ironheart – the successor of sorts to Iron Man will get her own show.
– Secret Invasion – Samuel L Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn return as Nick Fury and Talos, respectively.
– Armor Wars – Don Cheadle returns as War Machine.
Plus, Guardians fans don’t miss out, with a series of I Am Groot shorts on their way and… The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special! This is set to drop some time before the third movie, so likely Christmas 2022.
