Marvel Studios has printed (the start of) it is Phase four slate, and there have been a couple of main Marvel Cinematic Universe tv sequence introduced for the impending Disney+ streaming carrier. While presentations like Loki, What If? and WandaVision definitely sound thrilling, in addition they elevate some main questions on how the continuity of Marvel TV works.
Now that query is getting much more intriguing (vexing?) as Marvel Television head Joeph Loeb has printed that his department will sign up for Kevin Feige’s Marvel Studios in liberating TV sequence content material thru Disney+. What the ones initiatives are, regardless that, is someone’s wager!
Jeph Loeb was once doing an interview with Deadline, wherein he was once requested the query of whether or not or now not the Marvel motion pictures and Disney+ presentations are taking over an excessive amount of house from Marvel Television. According to Loeb:
“Well, first of all, I have to make something very clear, which is those are shows that are created and run and the responsibility of the motion picture studio. Secondly, Marvel Television will be doing shows with Disney+, we just haven’t announced what we’re going to do there.”
The interviewer did not simply let Loeb drop that vast grenade and simply stroll away; when pressed about when, precisely, Marvel Television will divulge its Disney+ slate, Loeb answered with “When we’re ready.”
If you might be questioning why it is a large deal, it has to do with the present wall of logistics that stands between Marvel Studios and Marvel Television – and the way it would all be converting. Marvel Television has all the time been handled as a separate entity than Marvel Studios – regardless of how the MCU attempted to provide itself as a union between movie and TV. Marvel Television has been loose to play with sequence that have been most effective tangentially associated with the MCU (the Netflix Defenders universe), and with characters that Disney/Marvel Studios could not even contact (like X-Men TV sequence Legion and The Gifted). However, with the Disney-Fox merger now finished, and Marvel Studios obviously taking extra reigns over the TV content material associated with the MCU, Loeb’s position within the pecking order has transform very unclear. Even with presentations like Legion and Agents of SHIELD now finishing, Marvel Television nonetheless has an increasing universe that is being constructed. Hulu would be the new beachhead, with Runaways and new sequence like Ghost Rider and Hellstrom on the way in which. There’s additionally a new Marvel TV sequence coming to interchange Agents of SHIELD – in all probability one spun out of the concluding sequence.
So there may be indubitably a large number of questions left to respond to referring to if/how Marvel Television presentations on Disney+ connect with the MCU, or if/how Marvel Hulu presentations will apply the similar regulations. The different quick query that the Deadline interviewer was once good sufficient to leap on was once if Marvel Television now has the risk to play with former Fox-owned characters in a completely interconnected universe. Loeb does not have the solution to that but, however he (and fanatics) are most certainly going to want the solution to that quicker ahead of later.
