Disney+ not only boasts the parent company’s already impressive catalog but new serialized programming from the likes of Lucasfilm and Marvel Studios. The thing is, despite the fact that the Mouse’s highest corporate entity oversees these and many other offshoots, this doesn’t mean that things are going to be uniform. Such is the case for Marvel Studios and Marvel Television, which are two entirely different entities. Kevin Feige manages the former, which constitutes the MCU, while Jeph Loeb runs the latter, which includes Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Netflix shows and more.

They aren’t the same thing. So, while Feige and company are spearheading new Disney+ shows like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki and WandaVision, Loeb and his group are doing their own thing. As the Marvel TV head told Deadline in a new interview, however, they will be producing their own content for the new streaming service. “Marvel Television will be doing shows with Disney+, we just haven’t announced what we’re going to do there,” he said. Asked about when those shows would be announced, he added, “When we’re ready.”

If that isn’t confusing enough, though, don’t forget that Marvel TV has many, many other non-Marvel Studios irons in the fire, like Hulu’s Runaways and Freeform’s Cloak & Dagger. There’s also the company’s upcoming slate of live-action and animated shows, which includes the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off Ghostrider and titles based on Howard the Duck, M.O.D.O.K, Hit-Monkey and Tigra and Dazzler. Together, this latter batch will come together to form The Offenders.

Did you catch all of that?

Avengers: Endgame directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo are going to keep answering questions about the movie until there are simply no questions left to answer. But would we want anything less from the filmmakers behind the biggest movie of all time? In this case, the directing duo has addressed the Captain America situation, as it relates to Bucky. Specifically, why Bucky isn't going to be our new Captain America.

This came as part of a recent Q&A the Russo brothers took part in. During the course of the Q&A, they really dove deep on Avengers: Endgame, picking apart some very specific elements of the movie. Speaking on why Bucky wasn't given the shield by Chris Evans' Steve Rogers at the end of the movie, Anthony Russo revealed it has more to do with Bucky's troubled past. Here's what he had to say.

"The thing we've loved exploring about Bucky is, he's got a very complicated history. He has a damaged mind. You don't want to hand a very powerful weapon to somebody who is vulnerable like that."

It's a fair point. Bucky spent decades as the Winter Soldier. Despite being brainwashed, he did kill dozens of people, at least. Including Tony Stark's parents. While he's certainly more stable these days, nothing is saying that couldn't be disrupted. On the flipside, Sam Wilson, aka Falcon, was gifted the shield and he's been right by Cap's side ever since Captain America: The Winter Soldier, fighting for good with hardly a bad mark on his resume. Joe Russo chimed in, explaining that Sam is very deserving of the honor.

"Falcon is an amazing character who is certainly very deserving of the shield"

To be fair, in the pages of Marvel Comics, both characters have become Captain America. Bucky initially took up the mantle following Civil War. As for the Sam Wilson version, that was a bit more recent, but it came as a result of Steve Rogers having the super soldier serum extracted from his body, which turned him into an old, frail man, much like the version of Steve we saw at the end of Avengers: Endgame. So there are some similarities in the storytelling in that regard.

We'll see Sam and Bucky teaming up in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, a series being produced for the Disney+ streaming service. Unlike previous live-action Marvel shows of the MCU era, this will be heavily tied to the movies and will see the return of Danil Bruhl as Baron Zemo from Captain America: Civil War. No exact release date has been provided, but the series will debut in fall 2020. We'll be sure to keep you posted as further details on that project come to light. In the meantime, be sure to check out the full Q&A with the Russo brothers from the Wired YouTube channel for yourself.

Disney delivers its first attack in the encroaching streaming wars. Those looking to sign up for Disney+ when it launches in November now have a new, possibly very appealing option on that front that will directly compete with Netflix. The company has announced a bundle that will be available when its new streaming service launches later this year, which will also include Hulu and ESPN+. The best part? All of this, when bundled together, will cost roughly the same amount as Netflix, which should give the Mouse House a huge leg up in the streaming game.

According to a new report, during Disney's investor call, the streaming service bundle was announced with a price point of $12.99 per month. Following the recent price increase by Netflix, that puts it on the same level as their most popular plan, which also costs $12.99 per month. It's also a bargain, as the ad-supported version of Hulu on its own is $5.99 per month, while Disney+ has been set at $6.99 per month. So, if one wants to look at it this way, it's like getting ESPN+ for free.

It should also be noted that Disney+ will be available as a standalone service for an annual price of $69.99, should consumers choose to go that route. As we recently reported, Disney was already planning to create some synergy by allowing for Disney+ to be an add-on service through Hulu. Following the merger with Fox, Disney gained a controlling stake in the service. Then, via a different deal with Comcast, they assumed full control, and they're clearly using that to their advantage. Disney CEO Bob Iger had this to say in a statement.

"The positive response to our direct-to-consumer strategy has been gratifying, and the integration of the businesses we acquired from 21st Century Fox only increases our confidence in our ability to leverage decades of iconic storytelling and the powerful creative engines across the entire company to deliver an extraordinary value proposition to consumers."

This comes at a time when the streaming wars are about to heat up in a big way. Netflix, at present, is king of the hill with more than 150 million subscribers worldwide. However, the company recently suffered a massive hit with its stock price, thanks to lower than expected growth in the last quarter. Not to mention that, aside from Disney+, WarnerMedia has HBO Max set to launch early next year, and NBC also has an unnamed streaming service on the way. The competition is going to get very fierce, very fast.

As for Disney+, it will feature a host of premium content, such as new Marvel shows like The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Loki and Hawkeye. It will also feature the first ever live-action Star Wars TV series, The Mandalorian, in addition to a live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp, amongst many other titles. Not to mention Disney's vast library of pre-existing content. Disney+ is set to launch on November 12. This news was previously reported by The Verge.

Brace yourselves, Marvel fans as we may have just learned some key release dates for Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We stress may since this isn't coming directly from Disney or Marvel Studios. So, for the time being, this can only be regarded as a rumor. That said, there is reason to think this could be legitimate and, if it is, there is much to discuss as there is one big mystery that will need solving that may or may not be the release date for what is right now being called Avengers 5.

This information comes from Charles Murphy, who recently posted the partial Marvel Phase 5 release scheduled to Twitter. Normally, this sort of thing could be written off as nonsense. However, Murphy has a pretty amazing track record, having accurately revealed Marvel's entire Phase 4 announcement ahead of San Diego Comic-Con, in addition to several other key pieces of MCU intel. So there's reason to think this guy has actual info regarding this release strategy. With that said, he recently posted a new leak to Twitter that states the following.

"Always subject to change and still much we don't know: Phase 5, V2"

Per his sources, whoever/whatever they may be, on February 18, 2022, we're getting Black Panther 2, May 6, 2022, will bring us Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and July 29, 2022, was listed, yet remains mysterious. The big one was at the end of his message, which listed "May 3 or 10, 2024" with a big shocked face emoji. That raises the question, what in the heck could possibly be coming nearly five years from now that's worth teasing at this particular time? Since no further information was given, that leaves us to our own devices, which means mostly hopeless speculation.

Other Phase 5 projects we know are coming include Captain Marvel 2 and Blade, as well as reboots of the X-Men and Fantastic Four. There is that one previously revealed release date for an untitled Marvel movie from Disney on July 29, 2022, which will likely go to one of these titles. But 2024 is a big jump. Best guess? Assuming the date is right, this will be Marvel's next major crossover event. As for what that could be? It's nearly impossible to make an educated guess, given that so many variables are up in the air. Secret Wars? Avengers 5?

It's almost silly to spend any amount of time guessing right now, as there is so much MCU content on the way over the next couple of years that could shape things. On the movie side, we have Black Widow, Eternals, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder. Plus, we have Disney+ shows like The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki and Hawkeye. The main takeaway here is that Marvel probably has more than a few surprises up its sleeve that we can't possibly predict just yet. Feel free to check out the original post from Charles Murphy's Twitter for yourself below.

Safe to say, there will be no shortage of things to watch on Disney+ when the service launches later this year. Disney recently held its quarterly investor call and CEO Bob Iger divulged a bunch of new information regarding the studio's streaming service. One of the biggest questions up to this point has been, how will the content stack up when compared to a service like Netflix? We now have a much better idea, as it's been revealed just how much content Disney+ will have on day one this November.

According to a new report, Disney+ will feature 300 movies and 7,500 episodes of TV at launch. While we haven't yet been treated to a full breakdown of that content, that's a hehy amount of titles to choose from right out of the gate. It's also stated that the movie library will grow to include more than 500 titles within the first year, with many of those titles being recent theatrical releases. Considering that Disney has far and away the most desirable content in the marketplace right now, the quality of those titles, one would suspect, will be a key factor.

As for what, specifically, all of this will consist of? Disney is working on quite a few originals for the service. The Mandalorian, the first ever live-action Star Wars TV series, was previously confirmed as a launch title. Other shows, like Marvel offerings such as The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and Loki, will be coming at a later date. Also on the Marvel side, movies such as Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World will be available at launch. The rest of the MCU titles, including Avengers: Endgame, will be made available at a later date.

Star Wars fans will have some of the movies available, such as the newer entries like Rogue One and The Force Awakens. However, as we previously reported, a cable TV deal will likely prevent the original trilogy from being on Disney+ for some time. At launch, Disney will also, rather probably, include a lot of library content from their vast history, as well as titles they acquired as part of the Fox deal, which extends to National Geographic and FX shows. It was also confirmed that The Simpsons, in its entirety, will live on Disney+, which is a huge get.

In terms of cost, Disney+ is very competitive with other streaming services. Subscribers will either pay $6.99 per month, or $69.99 annually, for the standalone service. Disney also recently announced an option for a bundle that will include Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+, which will go for $12.99 per month. By comparison, that's what Netflix's most popular plan goes for. Granted, Netflix has thousands of movies and TV shows, but the larger quantity doesn't guarantee all of that content will be as appealing as what Disney will have to offer. Disney+ is set to launch on November 12. This news was previously reported by CNET.
