Kevin Feige Addresses the Timeline of Marvel’s Disney+ Series
Marvel’s previous live-action TV shows have struggled to establish a solid connection with the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, that relationship might improve now that Disney+ has lined up some MCU heavy hitters for their own series. Unlike the earlier series, Marvel Studios is taking a more active hand to ensure the timelines sync up. While speaking with /Film, Kevin Feige offered new insight on where the new shows might take place in the MCU timeline.
“It will be MCU proper,” said Feige. “Sometimes it will take place as Captain Marvel did in a time before current events, sometimes it will take place during. What I will say, whatever happens in those, in those shows and with characters that have been in the films, they’ll undergo transformations, not Loki necessarily, but will undergo transformations in their series and those transformations will be reflected in their next film appearances because we’ve been developing long form narrative stories for Disney plus at the exact same time that we’ve been developing a post-[Avengers: Endgame] MCU, we’ve been able to do something we’ve never done before, which is interweave them from the start, from the plant.”
Currently, Marvel is developing shows featuring Loki, Vision and Scarlet Witch, as well as Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Feige also expressed enthusiasm for tackling their stories in a serialized format.
“It’s pretty exciting to be 10 plus years into the MCU and have an entirely new outlet to tell stories with new characters, with existing characters,” noted Feige. “And the way we like to do nineties action movies, political thrillers, heist movies, you hear us talk about this all the time, and now we get to do play with a medium even more in a multi-episode arc, which we’re excited about.”
