Today brought the launch of Disney+, and while not all the movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are available today, more will be added as time goes on so that you can enjoy everything that Marvel Studios has to offer on the streaming service. However, it sounds like there will be two movies that won’t make it to the streaming service, and it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. As of now, Disney has no plans to host the Marvel Studios Spider-Man movies on Disney+. Read More »

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 been quite a roller coaster for Hawkeye fans since the announcement of the Disney+ series inspired by the acclaimed Matt Fraction/David Aja run — from the initial confusion over the least popular Avenger headlining a series, to the exciting casting of Hailee Steinfeld, to both stars’ involvement being in question. But it seems that Disney is still full steam ahead with Hawkeye, which will follow the everyman Avenger as he takes on a new protegé Kate Bishop, who Steinfeld is in talks to play.
With the launch of Disney+ today, fans got a glimpse at the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a new episode of Expanding The Universe, which gave a preview of several pieces of concept art for Hawkeye. The Hawkeye series concept art should get uncertain fans excited once again, as the wacky style, tone, and beloved sidekicks of Fraction and Aja’s beloved run are in full display — along with our first look at Kate Bishop in action.

Chris Evans is done playing Captain America. You know this, I know this, and he knows this. Still, the actor is bound to be asked about returning to the MCU for the rest of his days, because that’s the world we live in now. Sure enough, during a recent conversation with fellow MCU star Scarlett Johansson, the subject of Evans coming back to play Captain America again came up. Evans’ answer might surprise you! (No it won’t.) Meanwhile, Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus, the writers who wrapped-up Cap’s story in Avengers: Endgame, are vehemently against the suggestion of more Steve Rogers, and with good reason.

Not too long ago, Disney put up their awards consideration pages for the films they hope will land some nominations from the Oscars, Golden Globes and other important Hollywood organizations. When it came to Avengers: Endgame, the usual ambition was there for Best Picture, Best Director, and a slew of technical awards. But there was one surprising exclusion.
Robert Downey Jr. previously confirmed that he opted not to campaign for any acting awards for his farewell performance as Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame. This was surprising to fans since his final turn as the genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist and superhero felt like a performance that may have been worthy of at least a nomination. It appears Disney agreed and whether or not Downey intends to campaign for an Oscar, they’re going to do it for him. Robert Downey Jr. is included in the addition of consideration for Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress categories that feature several other Avengers: Endgame cast members too.

Since the initial announcement of Marvel’s upcoming Disney+ shows, it was clear they would tie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a way that previous Marvel TV shows (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., etc.) never did.

Read about the Loki Doctor Strange connection below, and how Hawkeye was planned as a movie.
