If one thing changes, what kind of ripple effects would that cause? Marvel and Disney have released the official trailer for their forthcoming animated series What If…? which showcases compelling and reimagined famous events from films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, creating a multiverse of infinite possibilities. Fan-favorite characters return, including Peggy Carter, T’Challa, Doctor Strange, Killmonger, Thor, and more.
Marvel Studios’ first-ever animated series launches on Disney+ next month and will present interesting new twists on the previous stories of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Disney and Lucasfilm unveiled the latest trailer for the highly anticipated sophomore season of The Mandalorian during Monday Night Football. The full trailer gives us some more glimpses of Baby Yoda, along with a few new characters that Star Wars fans might recognize.
The Mandalorian season 2 will focus on the continuing adventures of bounty hunter Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and his new charge, The Child (otherwise known as Baby Yoda). Rosario Dawson is playing Ahsoka Tano, Temuera Morrison is on board as notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett, Timothy Olyphant as likely playing a character named Cobb Vanth who wears Boba Fett’s famous armor, Katee Sackhoff is playing Bo-Katan, and Michael Biehn has joined the cast as some sort of bounty hunter. Carl Weathers is reprising his role as Greef Karga, Gina Carano is back as former Stormtrooper Cara Dune, and Giancarlo Esposito‘s villainous Moff Gideon continues his hunt for The Child.

Disney+ has released the first trailer for WandaVision. We were expecting The Falcon and the Winter Soldier as the first live-action MCU series to hit Disney’s streaming service, but the pandemic shuffled that up a bit, and instead, we’re getting this trippy take on Elizabeth Olsen‘s Wanda, aka Scarlet Witch, and Paul Bettany‘s Vision.
WandaVision marks the first series from Marvel Studios streaming exclusively on Disney+. The series is a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision—two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
Check out the new trailer below, which debuted at the 72nd Primetime Emmys:
In addition to Olsen and Bettany, WandaVision will also star Mad Men and If Beale Street Could Talk actress Teyonah Parris as an adult version of Monica Rambeau, a character who was introduced as a child in Captain Marvel. Kat Dennings and Randall Park will also reprise their MCU roles as Darcy Lewis and FBI agent Jimmy Woo, respectively, in the Disney Plus series. Jac Schaeffer, who was a screenwriter on Captain Marvel, will write, produce and act as a showrunner on the series.
As for the trailer itself, what do we get here? Well, it’s hard to tell. This is looking like one of the more trippy scenarios in the MCU. Kathryn Hahn makes a brief appearance, and she acknowledges the fact that Vision is dead. Are we going to get a mix of existential riffing along with some meta pop-culture references (note how the series takes on many classic TV shows of the past like I Love Lucy, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Bewitched, The Brady Bunch and so many others)? We also get some more fun shots like Paul Bettany dressed up in a cheap Halloween costume version of Vision from Marvel Comics. Also, keep your eyes peeled because if you blink you might miss Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau.
Check out the poster for the series as well:
We should expect WandaVision sometime before the end of 2020.
Featuring our first look at the new worlds the title character and Baby Yoda will visit, and teases for the re-emergence of the Jedi, Disney and Lucasfilm have released the first trailer for The Mandalorian Season 2, a mere month and a half before it’s set to premiere.
We thought that the first trailer for the second season would debut at this year’s Star Wars Celebration, but when that event was canceled due to the pandemic Lucasfilm and Jon Favreau decided to hold off on the release, but the time has finally come. So let’s check out the first trailer for The Mandalorian Season 2 right now!
Disney+ released two sneak peeks from its upcoming docuseries Marvel’s 616. Each episode is created by a different filmmaker covering a different topic. The service is set to premiere Marvel’s 616 soon enough and has released a couple of teasers to help promote the new docuseries.
Marvel’s 616 explores how Marvel’s rich legacy of stories, characters, and creators exist within the world outside your window. Each documentary, helmed by a unique filmmaker, explores the intersections of storytelling, pop culture, and fandom within the Marvel Universe. Films in this anthology series will cover topics including Marvel’s world-spanning artists, the trailblazing women of Marvel Comics, discovering the “forgotten” characters of Marvel, and much more.
While our beloved nerf-herder, smuggler extraordinaire, and all around swag king Han Solo flies the galaxy no more, his legacy will live on in the second standalone Star Wars film. The as of yet untitled Han Solo installment is set to premiere May 25, 2018. The film will star up and comer Alden Ehrenreich (Blue Jasmine, Hail, Ceaser).
Disney just announced that Harrison Ford will be reprising his iconic role as Indiana Jones in the fifth installment in the series with Steven Spielberg returning to direct.
Indiana Jones 5 has officially been set for July 19, 2019 as is currently the only film set for that date. Marvel’s Inhumans is scheduled for the July 12, just the weekend before, but chances are that Disney will end up moving Inhumans so they’re not battling it out at the box office. That’s just not smart business.
The power of the force is stronger than ever, and the heroes of the Star Wars Saga are on fans minds as they haven’t been in decades. In honor of International Women’s Day, let us turn our thoughts to one of our bravest heroes, the rebel that started it all, Leia Organa (played by Carrie Fisher in the films). While fans well know the fate of her twin brother, her story is only just now being told.
From all corners of the Star Wars extended universe Leia’s back story is being laid out like so many puzzle pieces. Fellow Disney property Marvel Comics released a five-issue comic last summer chronicling Leia’s own adventures just after she doesn’t give Chewie a medal in the closing scene of Star Wars: A New Hope.
The Disney/Lucasfilms plan to keep Star Wars at the forefront of our minds for the foreseeable future is certainly working.
Even the animated series Disney’s Rebels and the slew of books filled with back story secrets aren’t enough to satisfy fans. The next film in the franchise, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, is just under a year away and already the rumors are flying at light speed.
Star Wars The Force Awakens finally arrived in theaters on Thursday and we all got to see the first new Star Wars film since Disney purchased the franchise from George Lucas for roughly $4 billion. One thing is clear, it looks like Disney will have no trouble making that money back and then some.
