Marvel Studios: Legends is coming to Disney + in January
Last week, Marvel Studios and Disney + unveiled several new upcoming shows. However, there is another Marvel series just around the corner that was not announced at the time. Starting next month, Disney + is launching Marvel Studios: Legends, a new show that will serve as a primer for new and returning fans.
The first two episodes will cast the spotlight on Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch and Vision. This is not a coincidence, since they will also be featured in WandaVision next month. Presumably, the next episodes will focus on Winter Soldier, Falcon, Loki and other Marvel heroes with their own Disney + series. It’s also likely that this show will focus on MCU characters rather than their comic book counterparts.
Here is the official description of Marvel:
“As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to develop, Marvel Studios: Legends celebrates and codifies the above. Revisit epic heroes, villains, and moments from across the MCU in preparation for the highly anticipated stories that are yet to come. Each dynamic segment feeds directly into the next series premiering on Disney + – setting the stage for future events. Marvel Studios: Legends weaves together the many threads that make up the unparalleled Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Wanda Maximoff made her debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron as a powerful opponent of the Avengers, to become an even more powerful ally. [She] found her strength in herself and in her extraordinary relationship with a very unique person, Vision. Marvel Studios: Legends explores Wanda’s story as she grapples with cruel trials and losses, a chaotic power she struggles to control and hijack the loyalty of those she trusts most.
Born in the world in Avengers: Age of Ultron Vision chooses to fight alongside humanity, despite being an artificial life form himself. Marvel Studios: Legends follows Vision in his quest to better understand humans, evolving to be more like them, as he explores a romantic relationship with Wanda Maximoff in Captain America: Civil War. All of this leads to his final moments, as he makes the ultimate sacrifice for humanity, leaving those he loved to have an uncertain future.
The first two episodes of Marvel Studios: Legends will arrive at Disney + on January 8, 2021.
