It sometimes feels like Marvel and Disney chose to take a break in may 2021. There are no new material, you think? However, after a little bit of digging it seems like it’s not entirely empty even if there are nothing bigger that have been announced globally – even if Cruella may be counted as one of the bigger premieres i may.
According to WhatsOnDisneyPlus, at least for the US watchers there are still ongoing legacy releases. Amongst some, “X-Men: The Last Stand” shoud arrive May 14 (next week). One thing that is less publicly known of is the series “Fury Files”. Some sites reports that this series was first released 2017, but by digging a bit deeper it also seems that this eventually is an entirely new production.
We’ve also reported about the M.O.D.O.K. series, that has its premiere in two weeks (May 21), even if that premiere may be limited to Star in US/UK only. In very short words, may 2021 seems to be – mostly – the month of legacy releases. Like Disney and Marvel finally closes their legacy.
With breakdowns of the season finale from Emergency Awesome and New Rockstars theorizing what will come – such as Sharon Carter in Secret Invasion – we now ask ourselves what’s up next since there will be a small gap in the time schedule before Loki starts. But first, New Rockstars mentions in the last breakdown of episode 6 that Sharon Carter “governmental access” also could open up for Armor Wars, a thing that I suspect that not everyone have been thinking of this far. But imagine; with access to techology directly linked to the government is perfectly referring to when stuff gets in the wrong hands.
While we still build the API we expect that next week will not be entirely empty, even if we haven’t checked the internet flows for a while. For example, the way Disney+ presenting the MCU right now, there should be a new episode of “Marvel Studios: Assembled” next week going for The Making of Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
And since the final episode of Captain America and The Winter soldier, there’s also a announcement of Captain America 4 that we are pushing out, both in the API and the prior MCU Timeline. This also opens up for a new extra resource for the API for what’s coming up next in order (Example: https://tools.tornevall.com/api/mcu/coming). In short, you should always be able to see what’s coming next in the schedule. Which leads us to the next point: HULU – and maybe also Star.
If don’t only count the TV-shows and MCU Films, the next thing coming in date order is as you can see above the M.O.D.O.K. animated series that was announced in february. A new post arrived at Marvel HQ just a few days ago. Even if it is supposed to be a HULU-only release, I do hope that it will be shared with Star also so that all Marvel hungry fans can continue digest more content during this spring and summer.
Some says (The WandaVision director actually) that theory-hungry fans will be disappointed by the shows finale. I don’t think there will be very much disappointments here. Even if Doctor Strange should’ve made a cameo. So, what happens now? We will wait for Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and last but not least – Black Widow!
And there are upcoming breakdowns; this time, New Rockstars, was really fast out with the first one, that explains the post credits. Erik Voss (who probably broke some kind of record this week) also still speaks about Mephisto, so let’s not drop that one just yet.
Since Phase 4 is now ongoing, we’ve updated the color scheme for the old phases so that the current movies and series are reflected better to the “truth”. Also, two episodes of Marvel Studios: Legends was released this weekend that changed positions back one week.
There’s also a slight change in the scheduling that we wasn’t prepared for, regarding Marvel Studios: Legends. Apparently, the episodes may be split up and shared over two weeks.
Since the episodes of Zemo and Sharon Carter wasn’t included in this weeks schedule, they will probably streaming as planned next week (since they have been included in other websites forecasts).
Many of us wonder if there will be a tenth episode of WandaVision since the finale next week will otherwise leave a gap the following week after that. Disney recently released a list over what’s coming in march, and “Marvel Studios: Avante” is one of those announcements. This also makes us believe that a tenth episode is most unlikely to happen. The announcement is described as below:
Marvel Studios Avante is an immersive documentary series that analyzes the creation of new programs and new films from Marvel Studios. The first episode will be about the successful WandaVision.
However, there are also further, more official announcements, of a docuseries callled “Making of WandaVision”, which may be correct title of “Avante” (unconfirmed). This leaves us with plenty of material during the gap, as the next episode of “Marvel Studios: Legends” also continues to stream four more episodes, with Falcon and The Winter Soldier as a theme.
There has also been speculations of a tenth episode due to a Disney Plus statement, that vaguely insinuates that there are “only two episodes left” and the count of episodes leaves us open with an open goal of (sometimes stupid) guesses, whether “two episodes left” includes the current eight episode or not. Tha unofficial statements are actually a long shot, since we believe that the gap will already be filled with the above announcements.
And with a fresh memory, Marvel Studios: Legends happened the week before the WandaVision premiere in a similar way – which also leaves us with a new question: Will Falcon and The Winter Soldier get the same premiere schedule?
