Marvel Studios brought down the house at San Diego Comic-Con this year by giving us the first confirmed titles from their Phase 4 slate, which includes Falcon and Winter Soldier. We had heard plenty about the series before this year's Hall H presentation, but now it has been officially confirmed, with both Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan set to reprise their roles. The series is confirmed to be arriving in fall 2020 on the Disney+ streaming service.
Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan took the stage with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige to tease a bit of what's to come in the first live-action Marvel series for Disney's streaming service. Stan made a big splash, as he entered Hall H at Comic-Con with the Captain America shield, which his character was gifted by Steve Rodgers at the end of Avengers: Endgame. Mackie briefly handed the shield to Stan, before promptly asking for it back.
The logo for the series was revealed for the audience, which prominently features Cap's old shield, signaling that it's going to play a significant part in the show, with Sam Wilson effectively serving as our new Captain America. A teaser video was also shown, featuring Daniel Bruhl returning in the role of Zemo. The teaser was brief, but it reportedly showed Bruhl putting on a mask, similar to the one he wars in the pages of Marvel Comics, though not purple. Bruhl had this to say in the video, making it clear he's not done with the MCU heroes just yet.
"I simply wanted to say hello to some old friends. Gentlemen, I will be seeing you very soon."
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has, historically, had something of a disconnect with the TV side of things. That's all going to change with the Disney+ shows, as they're going to be firmly rooted in the universe. Marvel also revealed that WanadaVision, which will center on Scarlet Witch and Vision, is coming in Spring 2020. Other projects teased at the panel included Eternals and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. These serve as the first confirmed projects for Marvel's Phase 4 lineup, even though the majority of what was revealed had already made itself known in advance of the panel. Still, it's exciting for fans to have firm confirmation.
Disney+ is set to launch this November and is positioned as a competitor to Netflix. At launch, it will cost $6.99 per month. With the Netflix Marvel shows no longer running, it will now serve as the home for Marvel TV. So now, MCU fans will need to shell out for a subscription service as well if they want to keep up with all of the happenings. We'll be sure to bring you all of the other big news from the Marvel.
