Disney+ has set launch dates for 3 upcoming Marvel and Star Wars sequence: The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will premiere in August, adopted by The Mandalorian season 2 in October, and WandaVision in December. Disney CEO Bob Iger made the bulletins on the firm’s quarterly earnings name on Tuesday. Iger additionally teased the potential of spin-offs for The Mandalorian, and confirmed that characters from the aforementioned Marvel exhibits will present up in Marvel Cinematic Universe films down the line, which Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige had talked about earlier.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier follows the two (Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan) coping with the Captain America mantle and the returning risk of Helmut Zemo (Daniel Brühl), who framed the Winter Soldier for a terrorist assault in Captain America: Civil War. WandaVision, that includes the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany), shall be partly set in the 1950s and tie into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. That leaves The Mandalorian, which wants no introduction at this level — it is the Star Wars present with Baby Yoda. It stars Pedro Pascal in the lead, hidden behind a helmet.
“The Falcon and the Winter Soldier […] will premiere on the service in August and WandaVision […] will debut in December,” Iger stated. “These same characters and actors from the Marvel Cinematic Universe along with events from these new shows will factor into future Marvel films as we integrate storytelling across these platforms, all under the Marvel Studio banner.”
Iger added later: “The priority in the next few years is television with The Mandalorian season 2 coming in October and then more coming from The Mandalorian thereafter, including the possibility of infusing it with more characters and the possibility of taking those characters in their own direction in terms of series. And then, we have a prequel to Rogue One and an Obi-Wan series also in development.”
In India, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, and The Mandalorian season 2 will launch on Disney+ Hotstar.
