Falcon and the Winter Soldier Concept Art

While everyone is talking about the debut of The Mandalorian and the completely nonsensical change to the face-off between Greedo and Han Solo in Star Wars: A New Hope as it appears on Disney+, there are some Marvel Cinematic Universe goodies that have been surfacing from the streaming service’s debut. And they reveal some sneak peeks at the forthcoming Marvel Studios original shows coming to Disney+ in the coming years.

Part of the launch day programming for Disney+ includes a 12-minute mini-documentary called Expanding the Universe, which focuses on what Marvel Studios has in the works with shows like Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Hawkeye, WandaVision, and more. In fact, we’ve got Falcon and the Winter Soldier concept art showing off new looks for the characters from the Captain America franchise, as well as a glimpse at the uniform for the new character U.S. Agent.

It’s a question that plenty of people will have going into Elizabeth Banks‘ new Charlie’s Angels. Did we really need a new Charlie’s Angels? Not really. Does it justify its existence? Not exactly. But Charlie’s Angels is a mostly inoffensive piece of empower-pop entertainment that does have a lot of Kristen Stewart being very gay, which has to count for something.

the mandalorian special look

Naturally, there are spoilers for the first episode here.

The Mandalorian is the first live-action television series to spring from the world of Star Wars. Created by Jon Favreau, this first episode is directed by Dave Filoni, the powerhouse mind behind Lucasfilm’s popular (and important) animated shows. It stars Pedro Pascal as a nameless Mandalorian bounty hunter who gets an offer for a job he can’t refuse from another nameless mystery man with Imperial connections played by Werner Herzog. Along the way, he joins forces with an ugnaught voiced by Nick Nolte and a suicidal bounty hunting droid named IG-11 voiced by Taika Waititi.

Ultimately, it’s a classic spaghetti western set-up, taking all the best tropes of Japanese samurai cinema and reformatting them into a western. The show merely takes that one step further by dropping it seamlessly into a galaxy far, far away.
