After Endgame, Marvel fans left the movie theater sobbing thinking that Marvel could not top the Infinity Saga, but the Disney + new Marvel series seeks to prove it wrong.
Marvel studios announced that Phase Four would be launching its first series WandaVision January 15, 2021, on Disney + along with other spinoff series such as The Falcon & The Winter Soldier and Loki on March 19 and June 9 of 2021.
Everyone cheered when it was announced that Black Widow would get her own solo movie which released on July 9, 2021. The movie left fans in tears of joy and sadness as fans realized that they would no longer see Scarlet Johansson on the Marvel screen again.
It is sad to see fan-favorite Marvel actors leave, but the new generation of Marvel movies seeks to live up to people’s standards. While no one can replace Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, there is room for new superheroes to rise with their own movies.
The New York Times writes. “A hallmark of the Marvel-Disney+ productions so far have been their self-conscious desire to show that they have more on their minds than typical superhero series.”
Each release since the original Marvel movies has left fans on the edge of their seat such as the new Spider-man, Spider-man: No Way Home. The trailer alone made fans lose their hats with easter eggs of past super villains coming onto the big screen again and the possibility of an evil Doctor Strange.
“Thanks to all the multiverse leaks that we’ve seen online for the better part of the year, we know precisely why No Way Home will be so exciting. It’s a multiverse movie that will reunite all the actors who appeared in Sony’s Spider-Man trilogies,” according to Yahoo Entertainment.
The newest Marvel movie released is the Shang-Chi: And the Legend of the Ten Rings starring Simu Liu and Awkwafina. The movie has been very successful in the box office making over 35.8 million dollars in sales on the second weekend.
According to The Atlantic, “Bob Chapek, Disney’s CEO, describes the film as an ‘interesting experiment,’ given that it would be the company’s first franchise title since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic to hit theaters without simultaneously streaming on Disney+. Simu Liu, who plays Shang-Chi, responded on social media: ‘We are not an experiment … We are the surprise.’”
Marvel Entertainment has not failed to impress us with their creative writing and amazing cinematography. The action alone can draw you in along with the amazing cast that are witty and fit the Marvel character profile.
Along with these upcoming movies, Disney + has released its mini-series the What If show including original new marvel casting. The show kicks off with the series with the episode “What If… Captain Carter Were the First Avenger.”
The series dives into the possibility of one character setting off a different reality because of one choice they made. The first episode focuses on Peggy Carter, Captain America’s love interest become the new Captain America or the British version of that. The season consists of multiple realities, each one different from the last.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “To hear the Watcher tell it, Marvel’s What If…? is “a prism of endless possibility” — an anything-goes sandbox where the wildest hypotheticals can be realized, freed from the obligation to fit into the established Marvel Cinematic Universe canon.”
Marvel fans can expect more amazing and original content in the theaters and Disney+.
