It's time to pick our jaws off the ground after getting bombarded with tons and we mean TONS of new Disney projects coming our way. After the Disney Investor Day 2020, a 4 hour long conference here are the series, projects, and movies we are most excited for.
WandaVision premiers on January 15th, 2021, and we were treated to a new trailer ahead of its release.
After much anticipation and a few COVID delays, we finally got a Falcon and the Winter Soldier trailer and it looks AMAZING, along with a March 2021 release date!
What If...? An animated series featuring familiar voices and new stories about our favorite Marvel heroes in new and exciting situations/timelines. What If T'Challa was Star-Lord? Or Peggy Carter was the Super Soldier? We are excited to see where this series goes!
Ms. Marvel staring Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan got a sizzle real and hyped us up even more for this late 2021 series release!

Marvel's First Family is finally getting the MCU treatment! The Fantastic Four was Noah's gateway comic that started his love for reading comic books so to say I am excited would be an understatement!
