Feige: Filming Updates About Disney+ MCU Shows
The Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 4 can finally ramp up now that WandaVision has wrapped on Disney+. In addition to the Marvel Studios movies, it was recently announced by The Walt Disney Company Chief Executive Officer Bob Chapek that more than 100 new titles are coming to the Disney+ streaming service annually, including more Marvel titles.
Two of the most highly anticipated projects from Marvel Studios are She-Hulk and Moon Knight, both set to make their debut on Disney+. Recently, in and interview with The Companion, Marvel Studios Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige provided a short update on the progress of both series, hinting that production would begin in a few weeks.
Marvel Studios + Disney+ = ♥
Taking place just after 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, Marvel Studios’ WandaVision is the first MCU series to stream on Disney+. It was a runaway success, demonstrating that a collaboration between the two sister companies is a match made in heaven.
WandaVision‘s success is something that Feige is extremely proud of, saying:
It has been a burst of creative energy for me… to deeply explore more characters in our universe, and to do so in a very different and unique way, which I hope all of you can tell from our first streaming series WandaVision…
Feige said he enjoyed staying up to watch the series in “real-time,” adding that WandaVision unveiled “very much in the way we hoped it would, that we designed the series to provide a dialogue week to week, knowing that we were going to release them each week by week.”
The plan for the MCU shows is for them to lead straight into the films like 2022’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (which the studio has already confirmed will also star Olsen as the Scarlet Witch).
In The Companion interview, Feige added that “the fun of the MCU is, obviously, all of the crossover that we can do between series, between films.”
Feige Hints At Possible Future Seasons
In addition to talking about WandaVision, Feige discussed the future of Marvel’s Disney+ shows, hinting at some exciting developments.
In speaking about a possible second season for WandaVision, Feige told the science fiction outlet that:
I’ve been at Marvel for too long to say a definite no or definite yes to anything in regards [to] another season of WandaVision but some of the shows that we’re about to start filming, we are keeping in mind a structure that would lead into a Season Two and a Season Three in a more direct way.
Whatever the future holds for the Marvel shows, it’s clear they’ll continue to be high quality.
She-Hulk and Moon Knight Production Updates
If you’ve been reading along with Marvel Blog, then you already know that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be debuting on March 19th, 2021, and Loki will be debuting on June 11th, 2021.
Feige also promised that the next round of shows, including She-Hulk and Moon Knight, will start filming soon, saying:
Soon after that, we’ll have our first animated series, which is What If …?. We are finishing up Ms. Marvel, and we’re also shooting Hawkeye currently. In a few weeks, we start She-Hulk and a week or so after that, we start Moon Knight in addition to our features.
Wow! True Believers, that’s a lot of Marvel to look forward to in the future! And I, for one, am not fatigued on superheroes! Keep ’em coming!
Luckily, Feige says the studio won’t slow down anytime soon. He believes the Disney+ series will allow Marvel to explore the characters more in-depth, allowing fans to “see how they evolve and change, and see how that interacts with a feature [film], then see how it goes back into a series.”
In sum, it seems like She-Hulk and Moon Knight are about to start filming, and seasons two and three of the Disney+ shows is still up in the air. Marvel Blog’s True Believers, tell us what you think about the latest Marvel Studios series information from Kevin Feige.
