'WandaVision' and 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier' are setting up plot lines and character arcs which will be paid off in 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,' 'The Marvel s' and 'Captain America 4.'
Batman Begins“Gotham City” to better suggest its Michael Mann meets Sydney Lumet sensibilities. Nia DaCosta’sCaptain Marvel 2will now be titledThe Marvels. That means, yes, the sci-fi follow-up will feature Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel teaming up with Teyonah Parris’s Monica Rambeau/Spectrum (introduced in
WandaVision) and Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan/Ms Marvel (about to star in her own Disney+ show).Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3will kick off summer 2023. That’s three years after it was initially supposed to kick off both summer 2020 and Marvel’s Phase Four, back before James Gunn got temporarily fired by Disney over some old tweets.
Wakanda Foreveris both a solid, SEO-friendly sequel subtitle and a clear hint that the film will deal with Wakanda as a nation and not just with the politics of its monarchy. That, of course, makes sense since T’Challa will no longer be its star following Chadwick Boseman’s shocking death (from cancer) last August. With word that we’re getting a headtopics.com
WakandaDisney+ show as well, I am curious to what extent this film will serve as a stand-alone blockbuster and a backdoor pilot for the television show. Meanwhile, this teaser is also something of a reminder that Marvel is still best known for its movies. That’s just a week after the first season/series finale of
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, a six-part globe-trotting mini-series that essentially served to set up an Anthony Mackie-starringCaptain America 4. It seems thus far that the Disney+ television shows are thus far doing the set-up work for pay-offs which will occur in the movies. Whatever consequences exist for Elizabeth Olsen messing with reality will come to pass in Sam Raimi’s
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.The Falcon and the Winter Soldierled up to Sam Wilson becoming his own Captain America, but we’ll have to go to the movies to see his “I’m Captain America now” adventure. Likewise,WandaVisiondid the set-up work in introducing an adult Monica Rambau and giving her superpowers, but
The Marvelsis where we’ll get to see her in superpowered/outer-space action alongside a character (Miss Marvel) who will get her own Disney+ intro show. Does that mean fans have to see the shows to understand/enjoy the movies? Not really.WANDAVISIONI’m obviously speculating, but I’m guessing that headtopics.com
Captain America 4will be mostly enjoyable and entirely comprehensible even for those who only know that Steve Rogers retired inAvengers: Endgameand handed off his mantle/shield to his longtime friend and ally Sam Wilson.Falcon and the Winter Soldierwas a standard “refuses the call, goes on the quest, answers the call” narrative that ends with Anthony Mackie playing the new Captain America. Baron Zemo is still in jail (after being busted out by Bucky and Sam), Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes is still “The Winter Soldier” (no “White Wolf” nickname for him yet) and even Emily Irene VanCamp’s Sharon Carter is back in the U.S. government’s good graces, although Disney+ viewers know that Sharon is now a secret baddie and that Sam got his new costume from the Wakanda.
Do audiences need to know what transpired in betweenEndgameFalcon and the Winter Soldierto “get”Captain America 4? I’m guessing no more than audiences needed to know just a few key tidbits fromCaptain America: Civil WarAnt-Man and the Wasp, Black Panther
andSpider-Man: Homecoming. Even there, the info we needed to know was dished out in those films themselves, so we might expectCaptain America 4to contain a news report about John Walker going rogue just aThe Winter Soldieropened with Cap taking a trip to the Captain America museum to get those who didn’t see

One of Marvel’s big secrets is how little audiences need to know/remember about prior MCU movies to enjoy the present-tense offering.The solo franchises exist as stand-alone with periodic references to mostly the previous installments or the big event movies (mostly the headtopics.comRead more: Forbes »
