Unlike the Lucasfilm branch of the Mouse House, Marvel didn’t have any shows ready to go on the first day of Disney+. However, they did have something to offer fans – a mini-documentary entitled, Marvel Studios: Expanding the Universe, which included some new concept art for the various upcoming MCU series that will arrive on the streaming service over the next couple of years.
Within the titbits of how fun it is to work on the various MCU project, and clips of Kevin Feige at SDCC and D23 this year (the latter of which being where he announced that Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk would also join the Disney+ fold) there was some new artwork from upcoming shows The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Hawkeye.
First off, the art for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The new images offer us a little look at the new costumes that we will see in the series.
Falcon (Anthony Mackie) has a new suit which seems a little more in line with the ones the character has worn in the comics over the years – in particular, the red and white is more prominent than it has been in previous designs:
We also get a look at Bucky’s (Sebastian Stan) new look, which, with the return of the short hair and the navy blue jacket, is a lot more reminiscent of the Bucky Barnes we see in The First Avenger, his outfit more closely resembling the one he wears as a Howling Commando. In addition, it appears that his arm has also been changed, with the star returning, but in a blue and white palette, perhaps in a nod to the Captain America suit:
Sharon Carter a.k.a. Agent 13 (Emily VanCamp) is also in a costume that shares certain qualities with that of the comic book design:
Our first proper look at the design for US Agent (Wyatt Russell) is pretty spot-on for the original Marvel Comics design, which in more recent iterations is probably best described as a darker take on the Captain America suit:
As well as all this, there’s a look at Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl) who, unlike in Captain America: Civil War, will be sporting his iconic purple balaclava:
As for the Hawkeye images, they offer more of a look at the vibe of the show, which will see Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) train protégé Kate Bishop, who is as-yet uncast after some confusing rumours surrounding Hailee Steinfeld:
We’ll have to wait a little longer to see Marvel’s Disney+ offerings, the first of which is The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, for which filming is already underway.
