Feige on New Marvel Shows: “They Will Be Entirely Interwoven With Both the Current MCU, the Past MCU, and the Future of the MCU”

The Netflix Marvel world is dead with a do not resuscitate stamp on its head, so the future of Marvel/Disney television is firmly on the side of Disney+. We know there is going to be a Loki series, and very likely that there will be a Vision and Wanda series, and a Sam and Bucky show (that I think could be really awesome with the right people on board).

What we now also know, after an interview with Marvel Studios co-president Kevin Feige on ComicBook.com, is that these new shows will be closely connected to the canon of the cinematic MCU.

“These will be Marvel Studios productions,” Feige told ComicBook.com. “They will be entirely interwoven with both the current MCU, the past MCU, and the future of the MCU.”

Right now, Feige is committed to not announcing anything post Endgame or Spider-Man: Far From Home until after those movies hit screens. That makes sense since Endgame will really set a new standard for the future of the cinematic universe. Plus, we will need time to mourn our favorites until Black Panther 2.

However, what really grabs my interest in the way he claims the new series will be interwoven with the past of the MCU. It has been rumored that the Loki series will be exploring different time periods in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as it follows the God of Mischief, played by Tom Hiddleston. According to THR, “Sources say the show will follow Loki as the trickster and shape-shifter pops up throughout human history as an unlikely influencer on historical events.” Since the showrunner for the series will be a Ricky and Morty writer, it is going to be interesting for sure.

With Sam and Bucky, we could have an excellent opportunity to explore their military backgrounds and Bucky’s trauma as the Winter Soldier. Plus, if this is their adventures after Steve dies (I am just emotionally preparing myself for the possibility, okay), it’ll also be a really amazing story about dealing with grief and loss.

Vision and Wanda … I mean for fans of those characters, I hope it does justice to them for you.

Kevin Feige will have all the major parts of the MCU under his thumb and while that is great in terms of having one uniform vision, I do still feel very sad for those who were involved in the Netflix series. I may not have loved all of them, but they had fans and staffs and teams of people behind them who are now out of work.

I think there were better ways this cinematic MCU-into-TV move could have happened—it certainly could have used more transparency, but I hope that what we gain from it will be worth what we have lost. With the Netflix MCU we had a show singularly headed by a woman, another by a Black man, and supporting diversity and queer characters. Right now nothing from Disney+ seems to have anything that is comparable to that.

We shall see where it goes.
