THE DIRECT – Marvel Studio was set to start Phase Four with a bang, not just with their initial 2020 films Black Widow and The Eternals, but also with television shows produced exclusively for Disney+. The first Marvel Studios series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, was set to release in August 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic stopped production in its tracks in early March.

While the series has been recently gearing up to complete filming, the likelihood that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier would be able to meet their release date was becoming more and more uncertain. Now, a new report seems to confirm the inevitable news.

NEWS
According to a report from Laughing Place, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was not on the list of titles coming to Disney+ in August 2020. While Walt Disney Studios has yet to make an official statement concerning The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, it is expected that the show will not meet its initial August release window for the streaming service.

WHAT THIS MEANS
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier still needed to finish filming for a few days in the Czech Republic and in Atlanta, Georgia as well. While it’s unfortunate to see the show’s release officially be delayed, it was not a surprising outcome given that the series had yet to wrap principal photography.

It’s likely that the other Disney+ shows like WandaVision and Loki will also see some delays, as the Disney+ slate gets pushed back in the same way Marvel Studios’ film slate did back in April. This will give every series all the necessary time to finish filming and post-production, without having to be tied to a quickly approaching release window.

Delaying the Disney+ shows would also be necessary for the MCU’s timeline, given that the shows were created with the intentions of both affecting and being affected by the events of the films. Marvel Studios plans everything out to a tee, and while it may be a few more months before fans can see these highly-anticipated shows, there’s no doubt it will all pay off in the end.

DISNEY INSIDER – After Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series WandaVision was moved up to December 2020, the series hit a major snag, as did the rest of Hollywood due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Major film and television productions are slowly been given the green light to restart production again. According to a Facebook post by Tampa Bay Comic Con, Paul Bettany had to cancel his appearance due to being called back to resume WandaVision filming in July, the cast and crew had a wrap party back in March, but work still needs to be done, which includes reshoots.

“We finally received word from Paul Bettany’s representation, and unfortunately Paul had to cancel his appearance at TBCC this year due being called back by Disney for WandaVision filming in July, in Los Angeles. We’re working on guest additions!”

The studio has been working on post-production during the Hollywood shut down. If work indeed continues on small shoots in July, that would mean the series could still hit it’s December 2020 release.

Bettany reprises the role of Vision and Elizabeth Olsen returns to her role of Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, as they become the perfect married 50’s, nuclear family.

Teyonah Parris will also appear on the series as the grown-up version of Monica Rambeau, who was introduced to audiences in Captain Marvel. Kathryn Hahn is playing a nosey neighbor reportedly named Agatha. Josh Stamberg will also appear alongside Randall Park as secret agents.

According to recent reports Doctor Strange himself, Benedict Cumberbatch was on set for the last week of filming for WandaVision, which lines up with another story reported stating longtime Doctor Strange villain Nightmare would be the antagonist for the series, as well as Marvel Studios CCO Kevin Feige previously stating the film will lead directly into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Earlier this week, A report surfaced that Evan Peters (American Horror Story) joined the series last summer in an unknown but a key role and shot his scenes towards the end of last year. Fans are now speculating what his role could be; the popular but least likely guess is Wanda’s brother Pietro aka Quicksilver, a role he played in Fox’s X-Men universe and was played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The series is also rumored to have shot in front of a live studio audience, and will pay homage to the multi-camera sitcom comedies throughout television history, including I Love Lucy.

WandaVision is expected to make its debut on Disney+ later this year.

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.

The actress talks about juggling “Sorry For Your Loss” with the Marvel juggernaut, while dreaming up her next great adventures.

 

NY Times – One weekend about four years ago, Elizabeth Olsen found herself in the enviable position of having a pile of scripts to read. Just barely into her career — not counting childhood cameos alongside her older sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley — she’d already raked in indie accolades for “Martha Marcy May Marlene” and ascended into the Marvel universe as Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. the Scarlet Witch.

But something about Kit Steinkellner’s pilot for “Sorry for Your Loss,” and the role of Leigh Shaw, a young widow mourning the death of her husband, who either fell off a cliff or jumped, captivated her.

“I was doing a bunch of stuff that felt outside of myself, and I really wanted to be a part of something that’s a little bit more close to home,” Olsen said. Better yet, it came with an offer to be an executive producer.

“Sorry for Your Loss” quickly evolved into a critical darling, with James Poniewozik of The New York Times calling it a “quiet gem.” Season 2, now on Facebook Watch, picks up six months after the death of her husband (Mamoudou Athie, still present in flashbacks) as Leigh moves forward with baby steps: getting his comic book published posthumously, skipping grief group to have sex with her Postmates delivery guy. Then there’s the disconcerting fact that her husband’s brother (Jovan Adepo) has fallen in love with her.

Perhaps because of her paparazzi-hounded siblings, celebrity has never been a pursuit for Olsen, 30, who muses about the children she hopes to have with her fiancé, Robbie Arnett of the band Milo Greene.

“I never wanted to have a certain amount of power in the industry,” she said. “I really do love my job, and I’m happy doing just that and the charity I do, and being as private as possible.”

These are edited excerpts from the conversation.

Grief isn’t something most of us long to confront. So why can’t we turn away from Leigh and her story?

I think going through grief, whether it’s losing a parent or a spouse or a best friend, is a really isolating experience. And I feel like we try and be as authentic to the truth as possible. We also try to handle mental illness and addiction the same way. For a show like ours to hopefully make people not feel alone and to feel seen, that’s a special experience. And the thing that’s been interesting with Facebook is that there’s a built-in community for people, if they want it.

Is there any particular experience you find yourself drawing on to tap into her grief?

Buzz Feed – Attention, Marvel fans: Elizabeth Olsen is on board with the idea of an all-women superhero movie.

Olsen, who plays Wanda Maximoff, aka the Scarlet Witch, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, told BuzzFeed News’ AM to DM morning show that such a movie would have a “huge impact.”

“I think people really love these characters,” she said. “I feel like all the men in Marvel movies have done such a brilliant job with satisfying a lot of things our audiences want, and they’re funny and they’re talented. And so are all the women. And to give them more screentime, I think, would be a huge impact because comics aren’t just for boys who want to watch big boys.”

Fans were thrilled by a scene from Avengers: Endgame in which all the Marvel women joined forces to protect the Infinity Gauntlet.

So it won’t come as too much of a surprise that Brie Larson, aka Captain Marvel, told Variety earlier this week the idea of an all-women movie had been “truly discussed” at the highest levels of Marvel.

“I will say that a lot of the female cast members from Marvel walked up to [Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige] and we were like, ‘We are in this together, we want to do this,’” Larson told Variety, adding: “You know, I’m not in charge of the future of Marvel, but it is something that we’re really passionate about and we love and I feel like if enough people out in the world talk about how much they want it, maybe it’ll happen.”

Olsen said it’s important that Marvel makes films to cater to its diverse fanbase — which includes many women. “Especially when you go to conventions, you really see that,” she said.
