The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision get Disney+ release dates


Marvel fans wondering when the first MCU series would hit Disney+ can officially be at ease: The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and WandaVision both have more concrete release dates.

Disney’s streaming service launched in the United States back in November, but The Mandalorian was the only major original series available on the platform at the time. Knowing that a number of Marvel series were planned for Disney+, many fans have been eagerly awaiting updates on when we’ll see the first MCU television shows finally arrive. And now we know!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney CEO Bob Iger had an enlightening earnings call yesterday, during which he revealed which months the first two Marvel series will be appearing on the platform. Sam Wilson will take up Captain America’s shield in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier this August, while Wanda and Vision will travel through the sitcom sphere when WandaVision premieres in December.

This new comes only days after the first footage of both series appeared in a Marvel teaser that aired during the Super Bowl. Although the TV spot was a mere 30 seconds long, it seemed to confirm what fans had already guessed about both series: that the first will show Sam struggling to become the new Captain America, while the second will be the quirkiest Marvel installment yet.

The brief trailer also showed a clip from Loki, although Tom Hiddleston’s trickster series isn’t going to hit the platform until 2021. Sadly, no timeline was given for that series just yet.

Being the first two MCU stories to come to Disney+, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and WandaVision will set the tone for everything to come from Marvel’s TV series going forward. It seems unlikely they’ll disappoint us; with any luck, they’ll see the same success The Mandalorian has since it premiered in November.
