Kevin Feige on the ‘Major storylines’ present in Marvel’s Disney+ shows
During Disney’s investor presentation yesterday, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige opened up about the many Marvel shows in the works for Disney+ including Falcon & Winter Soldier, Loki, and WandaVision. He promises that these shows “will be equally important to the films” and to the post-Endgame future of the superhero franchise.
“These shows will be on the same level of quality that you’ve come to expect from Marvel Studios and we’re taking advantage of the freedom offered by Disney+, exploring the MCU and our favorite characters over multiple episodes.” Feige said. “These will be both new and continuing stories and one of the things we’re most excited about is that these will be major storylines set in the MCU with ramifications that will be felt both in the Disney+ shows we’re producing and our features on the big screen.”
In addition, Feige also confirmed they are in the process of developing the studios’ first animated anthology series, the previously reported What If? centered on what would have happened if key moments in Marvel history had gone differently from what we know.
Based on the Marvel’s classic comic book series of the same, the series’ voice cast will be comprised of new and current MCU cast members who will reprise their roles in animated form. The first episode of What if will explore the story of Peggy Carter becoming Captain America.
“What if Peggy Carter became a super soldier, and what if Steve Rogers stayed a scrawny kid but joined the fight using an armored suit built by Howard Stark?”
