Disney+ will be launching with a surprise for Marvel fans: Expanding the Universe. The new title will offer up a look at the future of Marvel Studios as it will appear on the small screen, with titles such as The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, Hawkeye, Moon Knight, She-Hulk, and Ms. Marvel. It's unclear how much Expanding the Universe will dive into the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but the only description from Disney+ promises it will be "a new look at the original series coming to the service." The reveal came with a promise of more Marvel Studios titles on the service at launch.
Two of the Marvel Studios designed for Disney+ releases have begun production as WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier have been shooting in Atlanta, Georgia. Loki is gearing up to start production in Atlanta soon, so concept art and casting news for the series are also a possibility. Whether or not Expanding the Universe will include footage or casting news from those shows or those coming to the streaming service later is unknown.
The Marvel shows on Disney+ will directly connect to upcoming titles set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as things move forward. "If you want to understand everything in future Marvel movies, [Feige] says, you’ll probably need a Disney+ subscription, because events from the new shows will factor into forthcoming films such as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness," Marvel Studios chief creative officer Kevin Feige told Bloomberg. "The Scarlet Witch will be a key character in that movie, and Feige points out that the Loki series will tie in, too."
