I published a new one As part of Piece at The dropout this evening. With the announcement that Anthony Mackie would repeat his role as Sam Wilson in Captain America 4It seemed like a good opportunity to take stock of what’s happening with Marvel’s streaming series.
Disney has long insisted that streaming is the company’s future and has invested heavily in bringing its existing brands to the medium. Despite the boost the pandemic has given streaming, the question to be asked is where is the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Are shows like WandaVision and The falcon and the winter soldier pave the future of the MCU? Or are they just commercials for feature films with big tickets?
