Press: Marvel gives first looks at WandaVision Disney+ series during Super Bowl

THE VERGE: Marvel Studios used its big Super Bowl advertising spot to quickly tease three upcoming Disney+ series: Falcon and Winter Soldier, Loki, and WandaVision.

There wasn’t much footage from any of the series, but there was enough glimpses to tease fans. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier saw Anthony Mackie’s Sam “Falcon” Wilson pick up Captain America’s shield and maneuver around with it. The series picks up where that arc ended, as Steve Rogers’ best friends try to navigate a world he’s no longer in. The show brings back Mackie’s Wilson and Sebastian Stan’s Bucky “Winter Soldier” Barnes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Avengers: Endgame ended with Steve Rogers handing over his Captain America shield to Sam. The teaser also showed a glimpse of Zemo’s return, the villain made famous in Captain America: Civil War.

WandaVision’s footage showed off scenes of Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany’s Vision interacting with each other in a house. The show was previously teased at Disney’s biennial D23 convention as a surreal sitcom-like take on their relationship. Loki had the least amount of footage, but showed actor Tom Hiddleston back in the role.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is one of two big Marvel series hitting Disney+ this year. The company previously announced that WandaVision would receive a 2020 release date, moving up from its original 2021 window. Both WandaVision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier will tie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Much like what The Mandalorian was to Lucasfilm, all eyes will be on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier as Marvel’s first big Disney+ series. Since Disney has launched Disney+, big changes behind-the-scenes have shed light on how important the integration between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the TV shows will be going forward. Kevin Feige, the visionary behind the MCU, now oversees all of Marvel Entertainment. Prior to the Disney+ launch, Jeph Loeb oversaw the various Marvel shows on various Disney networks, and streaming services like Hulu and Netflix. That changed late last year.

Now, Feige oversees everything Marvel, both cinematically and on the TV side. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be joined by the aforementioned WandaVision this year, followed by Loki, Hawkeye, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Moonknight in the coming years.

Press: ‘Sorry for Your Loss,’ ‘Limetown’ Canceled at Facebook Watch

Sad news!!! I hope they find another network to pick up the series!

The social media giant is scaling back on the number of scripted series for its streaming platform.

DEADLINE – Facebook Watch is paring back on scripted series, canceling Limetown after a single season and Sorry for Your Loss after two.

The moves come as the social media giant is paring back on scripted shows for its streaming platform, which have had some trouble breaking through despite critical acclaim for Sorry for Your Loss and generally positive notices for Limetown. Scripted series already ordered — including the third season of Real Bros of Simi Valley and Blumhouse’s Sacred Lies, which is set to premiere Feb. 20 — will still run on Facebook Watch, but the streamer will redouble its efforts in unscripted programming.

The Jada Pinkett Smith-hosted Red Table Talk has earned a Daytime Emmy nomination and regularly racks up 5 million or more views, per the company’s public stats (like other streamers, Facebook Watch doesn’t release detailed viewer data). The service’s unscripted offerings also include Returning the Favor starring Mike Rowe, the docuseries 9 Months With Courteney Cox and the talker Steve on Watch with Steve Harvey, which debuted Jan. 6.

Based on a narrative podcast of the same name, Limetown stars Jessica Biel as a journalist investigating a mass disappearance at a neuroscience research facility. Biel also executive produced the series along with her Iron Ocean partner Michelle Purple, podcast creators Zack Akers and Skip Bronkie and Midnight Radio’s Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg.

Sorry for Your Loss stars Elizabeth Olsen as a young widow who is trying to rebuild her life following her husband’s death. She also exec produced alongside creator Kit Steinkellner, Robin Lizzy Weiss, James Ponsoldt, Marc Turtletaub, Peter Saraf, Cynthia Pett, Brad Petrigala and Jon Liebman.

Facebook Watch’s retrenchment in unscripted somewhat mirrors that of YouTube, which scaled down its scripted offerings as it switched from a premium to an ad-supported model for original programming. Both companies sought to leverage their massive user bases for original programming, but with a handful of exceptions, those shows had a hard time breaking through in the Peak TV era.

Deadline first reported the news.

Press: Paul Bettany’s Vision May Star in ‘Scarlet Witch’ Series on Disney’s Streaming Service

 

COLLIDER – On the heels of yesterday’s news that Disney’s upcoming streaming service would be featuring a Winter Soldier/Falcon-focused limited TV series, it looks like the previously announced Scarlet Witch standalone series will be a two-hander. Longtime MCU player Paul Bettany, who has been the voice of JARVIS since 2008’s Iron Man before getting to appear on screen in the artificial flesh as the superheroic android Vision, is now expected to join Elizabeth Olsen in the streaming series.

/Film reports that Bettany will have a significant part to play in the Scarlet Witch limited series in a narrative that will likely focus on the relationship between Vision and Wanda Maximoff before the arrival of Thanos and his dusty fingers. Like the Tom Hiddleston-starring Loki series and the previously mentioned Winter Soldier/Falcon show, Scarlet Witch is expected to be six to eight episodes long and won’t be connected to either the Netflix Marvel TV universe or that of Disney’s broadcast banner, ABC. Production of the streaming series will be handled by Marvel Studios and not Marvel Television, bringing blockbuster-like budgets to each focused, limited season.

Not much more information is available on any of the MCU TV series, except for the fact that Empire writer Malcolm Spellman will write the limited series centering on Falcon and Winter Solidier. We should expect further confirmation from Disney proper once they’ve got their marketing machine all revved up and ready to go with official cast confirmations, title reveals, release dates, and more. Disney’s not alone in trying to get their many-headed streaming service up and available to the masses, but they might just be the furthest along the track in the quest to dethrone Netflix.

Press: Elizabeth Olsen and Kelly Marie Tran Explore Grief in First ‘Sorry for Your Loss’ Trailer

COLLIDER – Grief is a part of life. No matter who you are or where you go, you’re going to lose someone or something you love somewhere along the way.

Here’s the official synopsis:

“Sorry For Your Loss is a half hour drama on Facebook Watch that stars Elizabeth Olsen as Leigh Shaw, a young widow struggling to put her life back together in the wake of her husband’s unexpected death. The show is simultaneously devastating and uplifting, with grounded, flawed characters desperate to find humor anywhere they can. The series dives into grief as an unavoidable, universal, transformative part of life. Leigh’s journey will teach us that grief is not something merely to endure, medicate away or “muscle through,” but an essential part of the human experience.”
