Marvel dropped new trailers for the Disney+ series ‘Loki’ & ‘Wanda Vision’

loki2

Marvel/Disney+ released some new trailers for their Disney+ shows which are acting as spinoffs for certain Marvel heroes and villains. I have to give it to Marvel – they successfully avoided Disney’s Star Wars trap, which is that Disney has the habit of bleeding a franchise dry and oversaturating the market with too much stuff. Marvel waited long enough to actually build some excitement for these Disney+ series and they really spent BIG money on the productions. These aren’t dinky little spinoffs for a streaming service no one cares about. They are quality productions with movie stars and beloved characters which will add to the excitement around Marvel’s new phases.

Here’s the trailer for the Loki series. This is what Tom Hiddleston was filming in Georgia earlier this year, and it really does seem like it was built all around his particular charm. I kind of miss the Hiddles gossip!! I hope he does a lot of promotion for this. Also: Owen Wilson!!

Here’s the new trailer for Wanda Vision, the show with Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany. I don’t know what to think about this, although the surface-level story looks interesting as they cycle through sitcom eras.

And here’s the trailer for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, with Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan. This feels like it’s just an old-fashioned buddy-cop type of series. Just two guys, solving crimes, catching criminals, thwarting global plots.

    I kind of love that Falcon and Winter Soldier trailer. I’m really excited about that. I’m happy I got to see Endgame in the theatre, because that wrapped it up for me. These series are perfect, now I can watch them at home. I have this feeling 2022 I will go back to the theatre, and I’m thinking it’s Spiderman 3 that may get me there. But these will do more than just fine for 2021.

    • Jellybean says:

      I am beginning to get a little excited. I also felt that Endgame wrapped things up for me. i don’t think I will ever be there during opening week again. As for Spinderman???? Tom Holland is very good, but I really have had my fill of Siderman, Superman, Batman and The Hulk, I will be happy to see Tom crop up in other Marvel productions though.

      • Darla says:

        Me too, but now that I know it’s going to be the multiverse of Spidermans, I’m much more excited for it than I normally would be.

      • Jellybean says:

        Ok! that sounds different. I will keep an eye out now. Thank you.

      • Courtney B says:

        @jellybean yeah, it’s pretty crazy. Confirmed are Kirsten Dunst and Alfred Molina from the Raimi era and Andrew Garfield and Jamie foxx from the next. Plus JK Simmons made a surprise cameo in the last (Holland) Spider-Man. And Benedict Cumberbatch will be reprising Stephen strange and tying the multiverse in.

    I think tv could be Marvel’s natural habitat. The deliberately paced, recurring narrative of a series is closer to the narrative structure of comics.
    The actors seem well suited to their projects and the production values are good and consistent.

  3. manda says:

    I thought Wanda and Vision looked good, and the Loki show, too!! AND, we saw that they are also going to do a Ms. Marvel show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Jellybean says:

      I am going to give all three a go and I am not going to watch a single trailer. I think Marvel have earned my trsust on that one and it will be lovely to be 100% unspoiled.

  4. Ariel says:

    All three look good enough to try out at least. And Loki was always hands down the best Marvel villain.
    But I just read the Johnny depp article, and re-learning about his texts with Paul bettany where they joke about burning a woman at the stake and raping her corpse means I’ll probably pass on the Wanda show. Just, yuck.

    • Darla says:

      I’m so torn over this because I love Scarlett Witch and I think Olsen does a great job with her. So basically I’m just enraged at Bettany for being in that role. And what do I keep remembering? Joss Whedon saying in an interview he “knew right away” he needed Bettany for Vision. Whedon is a story still unfolding, trust me. Anyway, it figures. And I don’t know what I’m going to do when the time comes.

      You know, two rows down is the True Blood story from yesterday, and I keep seeing Skarsgard…imagine him as Vision.

      • Jane says:

        Same. I’ve loved Paul Bettany for 20 years but now I can’t bear to look at him. Plus the age difference between him and Elizabeth Olsen is just bleurgh.

      • Darla says:

        That’s another thing Jane. I forgot to mention that. You’re right.

      • Jellybean says:

        I have never noticed the age difference because he is Vision and not a human. It might be an issue in this though.

      • ClaireB says:

        I’ve never cared for Wanda or Vision, but the conceit of this show actually looked interesting and I was planning to watch it. And then Bettany’s involvement in the Depp thing came back and now I’m grossed out and angry. I don’t know if I’ll watch it now.

      • Grant says:

        Scarlet Witch is my absolute favorite Avenger and I love what Elizabeth Olson has done with her. I too am super grossed out by Paul Bettany. In a perfect world, they would recast Vision; I feel like this would be a much easier thing to do with his character, given that he is an android and an actor change wouldn’t be quite as noticeable as with someone like T’Challa.

        If it’s any consolation, I think that Paul Bettany’s role in WandaVision is going to be more of a support to Wanda–if the show is anything like the comics, I think this is going to be all about how Wanda actually becomes the Scarlet Witch. I also really love Kathryn Hahn and it looks like she is playing the Agatha Harkness character so despite my misgivings re: Paul Bettany, my Scarlet Witch standom simply will not allow me to pass this one up.

  5. Sofia says:

    I’m definitely interested. I’ll probably pass on Hawkeye because I’m not too interested in the character and I’m not the biggest fan of Renner. Same with Bettany now but I do like Lizzie Olsen and Wanda

    • Darla says:

      Not a fan of Renner either, but with Hailee Steinfeld having been cast as Kate Bishop, I’m going to watch. This show will really be used to introduce Bishop and she’ll take it from there. I’m into it.

    • Jellybean says:

      Well, if you don’t like Renner you also get Hailee Steinfeld, Vera Farmiga, Florence Pugh, the first Native American Marvel stars, at least one hearing impaired character etc. Renner also works very well with female directors, of which this series has two, Ovbiously there is Kathryn Bigelow who won best director working with him as her lead (ridiculous that she is still the only woman to win), but Niki Caro was also very vociferous about how good he was to work with, so that bodes well for Bert and Bertie. I am looking forward to it all, not forgetting the dog.

  6. Zaya says:

    I was excited about all three. It after hearing about PB’s text, I’ll pass on that one.

  7. Sarah says:

    Argh, we’ve managed to have Disney+ free since March thanks to our mobile phone contracts but that runs out in Feb 2021! Maybe a break then sign up for a while and binge all of these.

  8. smcollins says:

    Holy sh*t, they *all* look incredible! My Disney+ subscription just paid for itself.

  9. Nanea says:

    Loki as Jonathan Pine was my persoal highlight of the “Loki” trailer, and hearing him call out for Thor and Heimdall.

    Good to catch glimpses of Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wunmi Mosaku and Sophia Di Martino!

    While I initially rolled my ryes at the thought of Tom doing more Loki, I’m really looking forward to it now. May 2021 can’t come soon enough!

    • Darla says:

      He’s really great in the role. I feel bad about what happen to Hiddles. I never really feel badly for any of these aholes to tell you the truth, but in his case, I don’t think he deserved it. It was so overblown. It was the Taylor thing, which in itself was completely overblown, dude put on a tshirt for god sakes, but then followed by something with UNICEF which I thought was an invented controversy, one of those kick them while they’re down things. It was really vicious and completely unearned. The guy’s harmless. It really messed with his career though. And then you see someone like Depp who obviously has been horribly mistreating others his whole life, who skated for decades. There’s really no rhythm or reason to any of this.

      • Evenstar says:

        I don’t really think there was any reason to bring up his personal life or hand-wringing about his career? All of that was years ago, let’s move on and just enjoy the content ☺️

      • Darla says:

        Oh okay sorry, I hope you can shake it off!

      • MF1 says:

        Agree. Hiddles seems like a genuinely decent person. I’ve read a few profiles on him, and journalists always say he’s unfailingly nice, polite, and punctual. And he’s an incredible actor. I rolled my eyes at the whole Taylor thing like everyone else, but he definitely didn’t deserve the degree of bad press that he got.

      • Jellybean says:

        My problem with him is that he just one of the many who went to elite public schools. We talk about priviledge all the time, but for guys like him the priviledge is stratospheric. The fact that Loki went to Eton, Doctor Strange went to Harrow and Superman went to Stowe speaks volumes. Whilst it doesn’t stop me enjoying their work, it does stop me from engaging with them as human beings. I don’t really care how well they progress in their careers, there will always be another old English public school boy just around the corner, with impeccible manners, well honed skills and the contacts to get them to the front of the queue.

      • M.A.F. says:

        @Evenstar – Darla had a vaild point in bringing it up. He should be bigger by now but because the Taylor “relationship” and Golden Globe speech happened within the same time frame, it did effect his career a bit. And now that the Loki series is coming out, hopefully his profile will rise again.

      • Case says:

        Agreed, Darla. Tom is one of the few men in Hollywood I actually believe is as kind as he seems, and he didn’t deserve what happened to him. He’s just lovely. I do think he and Tay purposefully sought attention and it backfired, so that’s on them. But the Golden Globes thing was SUCH a bizarre controversy. Perhaps he didn’t give his speech quite as well as he could’ve, but all he was trying to say was that it’s an honor to make art that gives people doing really hard work some enjoyment. Why people freaked out over that, I don’t understand. The press was downright cruel to him when his behavior was 100% harmless, it was awful.

      • Natasha says:

        I’m torn – is it ok to have a ‘problem’ with someone because they have privilege? I don’t consider myself wildly priviledged but I did grow up white, middle class, in the US….so I inherently have more privilege than a large portion of the planet.

        Sure, there will always be someone to take his place (which is true for all of us) on the acting stage…but I haven’t seen or read anywhere that he is an asshole…so why are we holding against him something entirely out of his responsibility?

    • LP says:

      The glimpse of Loki as DB Cooper is like, giving me wings to get through today, that’s amazing! I swear that was Chris Evans and Scarlett Johannsen as well! And at the very end (in Kaiser’s pic), are those ‘Loki’ buttons everyone is wearing? Like “vote for Loki”?? LMAOO gonna be the best series of 2021!

  10. Lila says:

    So excited about Loki! Hiddles is welcome to do as much eager puppy dog promotion as he likes. I’ve missed him 😍

  11. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I’m all in for Loki. I could be all in for Falcon if Winter Soldier isn’t Mary Poppins Perfect (only reason I can’t stand that character lol).

  12. Tulip says:

    Excellent! I love the Loki trailer and the “jail” setting (which describes a large part of this year in a way). Plus Hiddleston gets to rock a suit as well as Loki’s usual wardrobe. Perfection.

  13. Elizabeth says:

    I’m excited to see these and hope they’re as good as they look!

  14. ClaireB says:

    I’m here for Hiddles as Loki.

  15. koko says:

    Just when I was feeling “Loki Free”, he’s gone and sucked me right back in again.

  16. Kealeen says:

    I assume the Loki series will also set him up to appear in the next Thor movie.

    • Rita says:

      I think Loki is long dead in that timeline, but he could sneak in, I guess. (I don’t understand “The Multiverse” btw)

  17. Leigh_S says:

    Very happy with what I see in the Loki trailer at 2:02-2:03

  18. Case says:

    Disney announced a dizzying amount of content yesterday; I’m so excited! I’m most excited for Loki, though. He’s my favorite Marvel character (and one of my favorite characters in general) and I can’t believe it’s finally happening!

  19. Lightpurple says:

    I am excited. There will be viewing parties on the veranda.

  20. H says:

    I’m looking forward to The Falcon & the Winter Soldier the most. While Steve/Bucky will always be it for me, I’m digging the trailer.

  21. carol lindsey says:

    I dont know what it is, but I can’t help but love Loki! Dont we all?

  22. The Recluse says:

    Cool stuff to look forward to.
