In a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Marvel President Kevin Feige stated that its new shows coming to the Disney+ streaming service will be fully connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “They will be entirely interwoven with both the current MCU, the past MCU, and the future of the MCU,” are his exact words. This is in contrast to the Netflix series, which might as well have listed “inspired by” during the opening credits.
Each show will be produced by the same teams responsible for the various Marvel films that hit theaters. While I doubt that the budgets will be the same as the major blockbuster films, this should ensure a level of quality that Marvel’s competitors just cannot match. It will also allow for plot consistency between films and shows, which is something that Netflix was not able to maintain.
As for when we’ll learn about the various series coming to Disney+ (apart from the rumors we already have), Feige stressed, “As we’ve been doing for years, aren’t going to announce anything post Avengers:Endgame or Spider-Man: Far From Home until post Endgame and Spider-Man.” Makes sense since announcing anything might spoil the endings of each film.
