Here are all Marvel's planned Disney+ shows
From familiar faces to fresh new heroes, Marvel is kicking off its next phase with a slew of Disney+ shows.
The next adventure
The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to grow. Just as The Mandalorian expanded the Star Wars galaxy, Marvel is doing the same with a slew of new TV shows, debuting on Disney+. Some focus on familiar faces from the films, while others will introduce new heroes. Here, we break down everything we know so far about Marvel's move to TV.
First up was the weird and wonderful WandaVision, centering on Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany's Vision. Inspired by classic TV sitcoms throughout the decades, this trippy series took a deep dive into Wanda and Vision's love story and ultimately served as a poignant meditation on grief. Kathryn Hahn also stole the show as the classic "nosy neighbor" type, Agnes, with Teyonah Parris making her debut as new hero Monica Rambeau.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
He's the captain now: Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) inherited Captain America's shield in Endgame, and this new series follows Sam and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) as they face off against returning Civil War villain Helmut Zemo (Daniel Brühl). Also returning is Emily VanCamp's former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Sharon Carter, with Wyatt Russell joining the cast as the government super-soldier John Walker.
Everyone's favorite greasy-haired trickster god will get his own series in June 2021, following Tom Hiddleston's Loki through time and space. The new series will answer the question: What happened after he swiped the Tesseract in Endgame and disappeared? (Spoiler: probably a lot of mischief.) The cast also includes Sophia Di Martino, Owen Wilson, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
Narrated by Jeffrey Wright as the omniscient Watcher, this animated anthology imagines alternate realities in the Marvel universe — like what if Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) took the Captain America super serum instead? Dozens of familiar Marvel heroes will lend their voice to the series, including Josh Brolin, Karen Gillan, Jeff Goldblum, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael B. Jordan, Natalie Portman, Paul Rudd, and Mark Ruffalo.
She's mean! She's green! And she knows the ins and outs of the legal system! Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany stars as Jennifer Walters, the brilliant-lawyer-turned-brawny-superhero (who's also Bruce Banner's cousin).
Star Wars alum Oscar Isaac is in talks to play the classic cloaked hero. In the comics, Moon Knight is an erratic vigilante named Marc Spector, who might get his powers from an ancient Egyptian moon god — or might just be crazy.
Marvel's first Muslim-American superhero is getting her own show, starring newcomer Iman Vellani as the idealistic and geeky Kamala Khan. She's a New Jersey high schooler who can stretch and "embiggen" her body to fight crime, and she dutifully defends her hometown (when she's not writing fanfic in her spare time).
Nick Fury, Samuel L. Jackson's eyepatch-sporting superspy, has been a key part of the MCU ever since he first popped up in the post-credits scene of the first Iron Man. Now, he's starring in his own show, joined by Ben Mendelsohn as the shape-shifting Skrull Talos and Kingsley Ben-Adir as the yet-unnamed villain..
The upcoming series centers on Don Cheadle's James Rhodes, a.k.a. War Machine, as he finds himself facing new threats after the death of his longtime BFF Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). The show will follow Rhodey as grapples with one of Tony's biggest fears: What happens when Stark tech falls into the wrong hands?
Tony Stark's legacy will also live on with the upcoming Ironheart show. Judas and the Black Messiah's Dominique Thorne stars as Riri Williams, a brilliant teenage inventor who builds her own take on the classic Iron Man suit.
I Am Groot
Baby Groot returns! The tiny arboreal hero will star in a new series of shorts on Disney+, joined by "several new and unusual characters."
