2020 left MCU fans feeling sad. The studio went almost twenty months without releasing any new content (not including Agents of Shield, which was at the time under Marvel television). Finally on January 15th, fans rejoiced when Marvel kicked off Phase 4 and dipped their toes into the streaming world.
Now that we are more than halfway through Wandavision, Disney+ released a tweet announcing a new documentary series titled Marvel’s Assembled. The show will be a behind-the-scenes look into the production of all their new films and television shows. The series will start with a deep dive into Wandavision.
This sound normal for a every growing streaming network right? Yes, but what this also means to fans like me is there will be new Marvel content every week in 2021! This exciting news only works if every project keeps its current release date and is not delayed any further.
Don’t believe me? Wandavision ends on March 5th and Marvel’s next Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, premiers on March 19th. So what can go between the two shows? The newly announced Marvel’s Assembled, which is dropping on March 12th.
When The Falcon and the Winter Soldier ends its six episode run on April 23rd, it will be followed by Marvel’s Assembled focusing on the Anthony Mackie and Sebation Stan led show on April 30th. What about the films you say? On May 7th Black Widow is released, and a week later it’s Marvel’s Assembled episode drops on May 13th.
I’ll save you the back and forth, if you crunch the numbers Loki, What If..?, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Hawkeye, Eternals, Ms. Marvel, and Spider-Man 3, will occupy every Friday throughout the year, except December 31st. If the calculations are indeed correct (Marvel hasn’t officially confirmed all the premiere dates) then we also can predict the release for some of the Disney+ shows. Loki has already be confirmed for sometime in May, but now we could be more precise with a May 21st release date.
It’s the little things that me us happy, and if COVID doesn’t throw a wrench into Marvel’s schedule like its been doing lately. We should have something to look forward to every Friday in 2021.
