In 2021, MCU made its digital debut on Disney+ with shows like WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and Loki. The Phase 4 slate is quite big, and Marvel decided to tell stories of characters who played a key role since Phase 1. All three series were set after the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019).
WandaVision starring Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Kathryn Hahn, Teyonah Parris, Randall Park, Evan Peters, and Kat Dennings, was the first MCU series to release. The first episode aired on January 15, 2021, and the show ended on March 5, 2021. In these 9 episodes, we saw how Wanda was coping with Vision’s loss and created her little world by trapping innocent people. Thanks to Hahn’s Agatha Harkness, we finally saw Olsen’s character becoming Scarlet Witch. WV phase was full of bewilderment, and fans loved the finale and the end credit scene.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier was the second Marvel show to release on Disney Plus. Starring Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, Daniel Brühl and Wyatt Russel, the series had only 6 episodes. In TFATWS, we saw Anthony Mackie’s internal and external fight to yield Captain America’s shield. Sebastian Stan’s Bucky is not the Winter Soldier anymore and got good character development. When Sam Wilson appeared as Captain America on the screens, fans couldn’t control their happiness. However, some are still upset that Bucky wasn’t released from the title of ‘Winter Soldier’.
Loki stars Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Jonathan Majors. The show had 6 episodes, and the last episode was wild as it caused the multiversal mess. We saw 2012 Loki processing everything that happened with him till Avengers: Infinity War. He loved one person (Sylvie) who ended up betraying him. The end-credit scene has got everyone excited for another crazy season. Fans loved the show, but some believe it focused more on the Loki-Sylvie angle instead of giving importance to Hiddleston’s God of Mischief.
