Disney+ Talk With Megan Williams: Marvel Studios: Expanding The Universe
From this week to the foreseeable future, ‘Trailer Talk’ is now ‘Disney+ Talk’ and will be short articles revolving around the shows and films that I have watched on Disney’s new streaming service.
The first item that caught my eye was the short documentary ‘Marvel Studios: Expanding The Universe’. This is a 7-minute look into Marvel’s upcoming shows and films that will be coming to Disney+, with footage taken from their panel at San Diego Comic Con.
While it is essentially an advertisement for Marvel Studios, it’s still exciting to see what characters the studio is planning on bringing to life.
The shows that was mentioned were ‘Loki’, a series based around the Thor character (played by Tom Hiddleston), ‘Wandavision’, featuring Scarlet Witch and Vision and starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, and ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ featuring Antony Mackie and Sebastian Stan.
While the above has already started filming and have the original cast returning, more shows were announced for the first time. ‘Ms Marvel’, an animated series based on the Marvel character, will be coming to the streaming service, as well as ‘She Hulk’ and an adaptation of the unique comic series ‘What If…?’, which looks at alternate pathways of the well-established characters.
Out of all the shows that have been announced, I’m looking forward to ‘What If…?’ and ‘Wandavision’. I find alternate story lines and the concept of ‘what if?’ fascinating, and it will be interesting to see how these characters, that we’ve come to know so well, will change. The animation also looks sleek and stylish.
Regarding ‘Wandavision’, I find Scarlet Witch’s story arc interesting and very human despite her destructive power. I think Marvel Studios handled these two characters poorly in the Cinematic Universe so, hopefully, this series will serve as a second chance to win its audience over, and fully focus on their character development and story.
It’ll be an exciting next few years for Marvel Studios and, while I may have lost interest in the cinematic films now that ‘Avengers: Endgame’ has been and gone, Disney+ is the way to go in regards of which direction the studio is taking.
