The MCU is expanding, and soon enough it’ll start invading TVs and computer screens across the multiverse.
Lest football unbelievers fear the Super Bowl held no charms after Shakira and Jennifer Lopez finished their epic halftime show, Marvel came to the rescue with a sneak peek of every MCU show coming to Disney+ over the next year. That includes: The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, WandaVision, and Loki.

MCU Takes Over, One Show At A Time
30 seconds isn’t much time to give a detailed look at Marvel’s streaming slate, but the TV spot packs a punch regardless. Starting with The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, which offers up a snippet of Sam (Anthony Mackie) practicing with Captain America’s shield. Not only that, but he and Bucky (Sebastian Stan) may see a little tension ripple through their united front as they face public opinion together.
WandaVision is primarily an aesthetic overload, throwing viewers into the I Love Lucy-esque world that Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) has created for herself and Vision (Paul Bettany). Her black-and-white wonderland quickly comes up against her real full-color life, however, and a barrage of versions fly through. Including, of course, her iconic Scarlet Witch outfit and headpiece that has not yet made its debut in the MCU.

Finally, Loki has the least amount of footage available. Not to mention that it’s unclear even what the premise of the series will be, beyond starring a Tesseract-stealing Loki (Tom Hiddleston) from an alternate timeline. But if his words are anything to go by, he’s “gonna burn this place down.” How successfully he does that, and how many places he ends up burning down or mixing up, is anybody’s guess.
There are no official release dates for Disney+’s Marvel collection yet, but we do know that both The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and WandaVision are expected in the back half of 2020, while Loki will be storming into town in the first half of 2021. And they’re all appointment TV despite being streaming service content, precisely because their stories will tie into the MCU as a whole.
