Over the past decade, Marvel Studios has brought a total of 23 interconnecting superhero
movies to the big screen, most of which were produced independently by the studio itself and
some in collaboration with other distributors like Universal Pictures and Sony. These movies
along with numerous TV shows, shorts and comic tie-ins shaped the media franchise that
would eventually be known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), a shared universe where an array of superheroes and characters based on Marvel Comics exist within the same
reality. Throughout the span of 11 years, these movies were released and divided across three
phases, beginning with IRON MAN (2008) for Phase 1 and ending with SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME (2019) for Phase 3.

Thus far, Marvel Studios have been consistently delivering audiences with at least two films
per year. In the upcoming highly anticipated Phase 4 expected to launch this year, fans would
get two new MCU instalments starting with the BLACK WIDOW in April and THE ETERNALS in November.

Last year, AVENGERS: ENDGAME (2019) may have given us an epic conclusion to the Infinity Saga, but not all stories within the MCU have been told yet. With the launched of Disney’s new streaming platform, the Disney+, Marvel Studios plan to further expand the untold stories within the MCU via the small screen. As parts of MCU’s Phase 4, Marvel Studios will also be producing several miniseries featuring some other existing MCU superheroes who did not receive a solo film treatment.

Earlier this week, at annual 54 th Super Bowl American Football game, a TV spot for the miniseries was aired during the commercial break. Check out the TV spot here:

The 30-second teaser gave us a first glimpse on some of the upcoming MCU miniseries, with
footages mostly coming from THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER and WANDAVISION. Also seen in the teaser was a brief appearance of the God of Mischief in the upcoming series LOKI. As the names suggest, the 6-episode miniseries will explore the stories of these titular characters, portrayed by the original casts of the MCU which include:

  • Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson (a.k.a. Falcon), an Avenger who uses a specialized
    wing pack for flight and combat and was also bestowed the Vibranium shield by old
    man Steve Rogers (Captain America) at the end of AVENGERS: ENDGAME;

instalments and the introduction of new characters alike.
