Marvel Phase 4; all the upcoming shows and movies in 2021!
In 2019, Marvel released Endgame which went on to become the highest-grossing movie of all time, taking over Avatar. The blockbuster movie was the closing of Marvel Phase 3 and we sadly had to bid farewell to some of our favourite superheroes.
Tears, heartbreak and a feeling of emptiness were common among those in the Marvel fandom. Guess some of us just aren’t too good at goodbyes! But hold the tears – Marvel already had a plan up their sleeves as it announced the Marvel Phase 4, sending fans and social media in a frenzy. So hold on to your hearts as we drop 2021 Marvel plans on you!
1. Wanda Vision (TV series)
This mini series follows the life of Vision, his wife, Wanda, and their idealized suburban life; until they realize not everything is what it seems to be. (Source: Disney Plus)
If you loved and dreamed of Jeannie and Bewitched, this one’s for you! Disney is paying homage to the shows that became iconic in their time and beyond! Wanda Vision is positioned like a vintage sitcom but the characters are from the MCU, giving them superpowers. It is a sequel to Avengers: Endgame.
Release date: 15th January 2021 (Stream on Disney+)
2. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (TV series)
This show revolves around Sam Wilson (Falcon) and Bucky Barnes (Winter soldier) as they lead their lives after Endgame and after Steve Rogers passes the iconic Captain America shield to Sam. The two misfits are on an adventure, which will most likely test their friendship, survival skills and composure.
The Falcon & The Winter Soldier was supposed to be the first Marvel show on the air, but Covid took over, much to the fan’s disappointment. However, as we look forward to this 6 episode March premiere, we have Wanda Vision to fill the gap!
Catch this duo on screen and see what they’re up to! Oh how much we missed them!
Release date: 19th March 2021 (Disney +)
3. Loki (TV series)
Yes, that’s right! Our very own Loki is getting his own mini series!
Wait a minute, do you remember the last time we saw Loki? It was in Endgame, when he stole the Tesseract and just… vanished. The series picks up from when he took the Tesseract and what follows after. Not only can he travel anywhere in space, but this time, it will be anywhere in time too! (says a 1975 Jaws Billboard spotted in the trailer). Exciting stuff that. Can’t wait for this thriller to be released soon!
