The MCU is currently going through quite the change, not only has the Infinity Saga came to an end, along with Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, And Natasha Romanoff, but this is no longer a movie only universe. With the launch of Disney+, we know many MCU limited series have been announced by Disney and all are guided by Marvel Studios.
Most of these are off-shoots of characters we first met in the movies, but Kevin Feige insists this will go the other way as well. Speaking recently on THR‘s Awards Chatter Podcast, Feige talked about how the likes of Moon Knight, and Ms. Marvel will be getting movies in the future, check it out.
“Some characters we’ve announced like She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Moon Knight you will meet for the first time on a Disney+ show and then they’ll go into the movies but the MCU will now go back and forth. It’s specifically planned the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be in theaters and on Disney+. To go full circle, when I went to USC, it was called the USC School of Film and Television and it is now called the USC School of Cinematic Arts, because cinematic arts crossover. We are certainly doing cinematic art-level productions for Disney+. The Falcon and The Winter Solider is currently shooting and just yesterday, I got back from the set of WandaVision, which is shooting. All of those characters will undergo transformative, very-exciting changes in that show and go into our movies, so they’ll go back and forth.”
That’s pretty exciting and of course, it is really going to help with subscribers to Disney+ if you have to watch the TV series to understand everything about the MCU now, which Feige has said himself, will be the case. Personally, I’m all for it, my only gripe is the delay in my country of the launch of Disney+. I want to give them my money, but they won’t let me currently (insert tiny violin). To be fair by the time most of the Marvel shows are set to arrive I’ll be watching along live with everyone else, and I couldn’t be happier, if the quality remains as consistent as the movies have.
