This is not a drill!! It was announced today by Loki himself (Tom Hiddleston) on the official Marvel youtube channel that the original Disney plus show Loki it will no longer be premiering on June 11 but on Wednesday, June 9!
The video titled ‘Announcement’ has Tom Hiddleston talk about how his character Loki is near involved in the bid hero sequences that are usually in the begging on a Marvel movie or show. He remarks about how he’s cunning and charming, which, I mean, duh! And he proudly announces that Wednesdays are the new Fridays, indicating that will it be released earlier than any other Marvel show so far. If that’s not a Norse God flex, I don’t know what is!
Obviously it’s not a huge difference, like releasing it a month early or anything but it’s still really awesome news. Marvel just wants us to continue to let ‘WandaVision’ and ‘Captain America and The Winter Solider’ marinate a bit more but it’s cool. I’m chill. Like super chill about a month long Marvel drought.
As fans of Marvel we are used to being told that something was being pushed back instead of forward especially in the last year and some months thanks to Ms. Rona like ‘Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings’, and ‘Black Widow’ but news about ‘Loki’ being moved up is a welcomed surprise for sure.
Monday, Disney Plus tweeted a poster for their spin-off series The Falcon and the Winter Solider, featuring Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson dressed in the latest Captain America garb and wielding Steve Rodger’s shield:
Revealed on their Twitter account, this comes just days after the finale of the show, which ends with Sam Wilson officially taking the mantle of Captain America. Reminiscent of Sam Wilson’s Captain America uniform from 2014’s All-New Captain America written by Rick Remender and illustrated by Stuart Immonen, many fans have embraced the new Sentinel of Liberty:
Which we talked about a little bit in our big articles about all of the new Marvel shows and movies coming out back in December.
‘The Falcon and The Winter Soldier’ will be second official Disney+ Marvel show since ‘WandaVision’,to hit Disney Plus, streaming this coming March 19.
A bit of what I wrote indicated how I felt Sam (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky’s (Sebastian Stan) relationship dynamic will changed due to the fact the Captain America is gone. Sam and Bucky really didn’t interact too much to where they became best friends but now they are headlining a show together and their interaction is key.
In the beginning of the trailer, we see the two with a therapist maybe or a manger whoever they are working at to council them. And we see some of Sam and Bucky not being on the same page during what looked to be a mission.
Then we hear a voice about how superheroes shouldn’t exist; so he’s clearly the bad guy. We see him walk with a specific purple mask in his hand. Helmut Zemo played by Daniel Brühl is back! We first meet him in Avengers: Civil War, where he framed Bucky for blowing up the building where the Sovokia Accords were taking place thus killing King T’Chaka. We last see him taken into custody for his crimes at the end of the movie. Another returning Marvel alum is Sharon Carter played by Emily VanCamp, who looks to be teaming up with our boys for the show.
We see that both Bucky and Sam are practicing with Cap’s shield and even see Sam use it during battles but of course there is no real indication yet on who will take up his mantle or if anybody will. With Marvel everything and anything goes, I mean have seen ‘WandaVision’ Episode 5?! The trailer ends comedically with the two having a staring contest.
The official trailer tells us more but not enough! I need to know where this fits in the timeline where ‘WandaVision’ is concerned. Is it happening at the same time? Before or After? I could see these events taking place before hand maybe because it would explain why no once tried to call an Avenger or couple in to help the Wanda situation. Dr. Strange anyone??
So are you excited for ‘The Falcon And The Winder Soldier’? Who do you think will take Cap’s title? Make sure to watch the trailer and let us know how you feel.
Just after releasing the fact that Hailee Steinfeld will be appearing as Kate Bishop in the Disney + show, Hawkeye, we ‘ve got news, first looks, and trailers for some of Marvel’s most anticipated new releases in the roster; including, Loki, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Thor: Love and Thunder, and Ms. Marvel. But, before I get ahead of myself, let’s start with the biggest news.
Now, whoo, let us brace ourselves for a moment.
Braced? Holding onto your butts? Great! We’ve got a more-than-two-minute look at what our dear, emo king, Loki will get up to in his own show on Disney +.
The trailer starts where we last saw Loki, or at least the one from the past who is still alive. It’s a little complicated and it’s been awhile since everyone has seen Avengers: Endgame, so let me explain. In Endgame, after the snap- five years in fact- what’s left of the gang figures out time travel to collect the infinity stones in a way that will defeat Thanos and bring everyone back.
Long story short, when they arrive in New York during the first Avengers movie, they pull off a complicated plan to get the tesseract (a.k.a the space stone) which has the ability to create portals where the user can portal from one universe to another. Due to some unforeseen hijinks, it ends up at Loki’s feet and he takes off with it swiftly.
So now, in the trailer, we see where he ended up. In a desert- but it’s very unclear which universe he’s actually in. At some point, he gets taken and put under arrest by Owen Wilson’s agent for the TVA (Time Variance Authority).
(The TVA is the literal governing body of the multiverse, which is a huge deal for the MCU and MCEU. Through the next few phases, the big brains at Marvel could be building up the next world ending event, which just might be a colliding of the multiverses and other universe heroes!)
Loki is taken down in an elevator with Wilson’s character and we get a shot of the elevator buttons which seem to be different universes instead of regular floor numbers in the building. We then see a flurry of scenes from Loki getting shown footage of his defeat, which also raises the question if time works differently at the TVA. If they can show him footage of what would happen, do they have footage of the future somewhere? Of Endgame and the events that happened in between? And where were they during the big events of the series anyway?
My theories aside, at the end of the trailer we see Loki with shorter hair and in a suit. Does he work for the TVA now? He jumps out of a plane and gets caught by Bifrost and taken to Asgard, presumably. The trailer is an obvious must watch. Coming to Disney +, May 2021.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier
Next up, we have a look at Anthony Mackie’s Falcon (Sam) and Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier (Bucky) in their team-up show for the streaming service. It’s been up in the air what the two would do after Captain America’s exit from the MCEU. Both Sam and Bucky were both canonically next to take on the mantel of our star spangled boy, but Steve gave Sam the shield in the end.
We see, in the trailer, that the shield was put into a memorial museum or exhibit for Cap. No telling how far into the future we are after his passing, but the two are suiting up again in some nice new gear. The trailer doesn’t give us much to go on about who they’ll be facing except for some shots with some young-ish looking people in masks.
The most intriguing aspect of the show, in my opinion, is to see how well the two interact now that Steve is gone. The change in their dynamic will hopefully prove to be interesting and keep us watching. Check out the tailer here. Streaming this coming March 19, 2021.
Marvel’s What If…? might be one of the most advantageous projects they’ve taken on in an animated form.
The comic series and the show will explore many what if scenarios that could’ve happened if someone or something in the wide Marvel multiverses hadn’t occurred. The series ran from 1977 to 84 and the show, being made for the small screen, helps early theories about Marvel exploring more universes and realities in a BIG way.
In the trailer, specifically, we see that instead of Steve Rogers as Captain America, we see resident badass herself, Peggy Carter, dressed in a red, white and blue suit and carrying an English flag version of the shield.
T’Challa, once played by the late great Chadwick Boseman, is not seen as the King of Wakanda or Black Panther, but as Starlord.
We are briefly introduced to The Watcher; we see glimpses of Captain Marvel which seems to still be the Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) that we were introduced to in her movie, as well as Doctor Strange, who seems to be fighting an evil alternate version of himself. Most shockingly, we see Bucky fighting a literal zombie of his former best friend, still dressed and holding onto to his weapon.
I am beyond excited for this show! I think this one, along with Loki and WandaVision, might just be the ones to give us the unexpected chills. Give the trailer a gander. Streaming the summer of 2021.
Finally, we have a second official trailer for WandaVision. It will be the first of the Marvel/ Disney + shows coming out on January 15th, 2021. It’s not too different from he other sneek peeks and trailers we’ve seen so far, although we do get some Get Out, sunken place vibes as we see the characters glitch in and out of who they are and who they are pretending to be or warped into being.
We do get to see Kat Denning’s character, Darcy, from Thor and Thor: The Dark World for a quick second, as well as some magicking or “fixing” that Wanda is doing with Vision’s Mind Stone. It’s still very unclear where this place they are is, due to Wanda’s powers, because as we all know, Vision is gone. Before the snapping, Thanos ripped the stone from him, killing him.
I still want to tread lightly with this show, but overall it’s giving very Twilight Zone vibes, and I think I’m living for it. Their trailer is right here!
I will be back with pt. 2 very shortly! But what do you guys think? Which show are you excited to see the most? I can honestly say that my emo king is calling.
