Disney teases 'Black Widow' and the MCU's first three Disney+ shows
Despite last year’s Avengers: Endgame serving as a culmination in a lot of ways, the Marvel Cinematic Universe isn’t slowing down anytime soon. During the weekend’s big game, Marvel Studios debuted a new look at their next upcoming big screen release, Black Widow, as well as a first look at three upcoming Disney+ series. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and WandaVision are slated to debut on the streaming service later this year with Loki set to debut in 2021. Take a look at everything in the players below!
Scarlett Johansson, who is currently nominated for two Academy Awards for her recent performances in both Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story and in Taika Waititi‘s Jojo Rabbit, reprises her role as Natasha Romanoff (aka Black Widow) in the action packed spy thriller. Joining her is Midsommar and Little Women star Florence Pugh as Yelena, David Harbour as Alexei (aka The Red Guardian) and Rachel Weisz as Melina.
Directed by Cate Shortland (Lore, Berlin Syndrome) and produced by Kevin Feige, Black Widow hits the big screen May 1.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier follows the events of Avengers: Endgame as 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. The all-new series is directed by Kari Skogland with Malcolm Spellman serving as the show’s head writer. Look for it on Disney+ this fall.
WandaVision blends the style of classic sitcoms with the Marvel Cinematic Universe and follows 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 with Jac Schaeffer serving as head writer. It will arrive on Disney+ later this year.
Finally, Loki is set to follow the mercurial villain (Tom Hiddleston) as he resumes his role as the God of Mischief for a new series that takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Kate Herron directs with Michael Waldron serving head writer. Look for it on Disney+ in 2021.
