    I know that everyone likes Loki, and he is one of the better Avengerverse villains, but could he sustain an entire TV show by himself?

    Shows have been sustained with less. Much less.

    Well, these are supposedly going to be limited series, not ongoing shows like the Netflix and other Marvel TV shows. So, yeah, I can see him sustaining a single series storyline. He was secretly ruling Asgard for 4 years, afterall. But even if they take a different direction, it'd be a good way to use other Thor/Asgardian/9 Realms characters that aren't being used in the films.

    Oh, OK. If it’s more like a miniseries, that’s different.

    Let us never forget how terribly PotC 4 was carried by Jack Sparrow.

    I'd rather have a TV series carried than a film, at least...

    Premiere date: 11-Jun

    Falcon and the Winter Solder runs from 19-Mar to 23-Apr (six episodes) so that leaves 7 weeks between content -- with Black Widow still scheduled for 7-May.

    Hopefully Black Widow doesn't get pushed back. I really hope to see that film soon and in a theater.

    I don't have the same level of anticipation for Loki as I did for Wandavision and now Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but I be there when it drops. Probably because I feel like I see this type of show in Quantum Leap, Legends of Tomorrow, Sliders and others in the like. And probably because there isn't much of any comic book stories/source material that this series is based or inspired by, unlike Wandavision. I'm sure the MCU will make Loki a great series. I just don't have a large amount of anticipation for the time being.

    I do think Black Widow will come out in May now as expected. I think Disney has locked in and the vaccine roll outs likely fill them with confidence that they can get at least a portion of the audience back in theaters. I DO however think they will (likely right before Loki's release) offer a Disney + option to rent it for $30 since it will have been in theaters for a full month by then. But yeah, I think shifting Loki to Jun is a part of this plan.

    Wellllll.... IIRC, isn't the TVA one of the primary monitors of the multiverse? I'm sure that won't be at all connected and/or useful... :p

    Bad Batch starts May 4th. So 1.5 weeks after FATWS ends, overlaps with BW’s release in theaters in week 1.

    We don’t know how many eps BB runs but let’s assume a TCW S7 run of 12. That gives BB a little over a month to finish its first story arc and start the second (intending to hopefully hook people) then run concurrent to Loki when the launch hype for that hits.

    Loki then finishes around the time Shang-Chi hits.

    Then we wait for Ms Marvel snd Eternals in the fall. Our year-long MCU-fest ends festively around the holidays with NWH.

    I hope so. It would be a shame if a founding member of the Avengers, Black Widow, doesn't get a true theatrical release. Especially, since it is figuratively and literally very long over due. It's a really good sign that theaters in New York will be reopening in a few weeks.

    Yeah, perhaps. :p

    But, I don't think the TVA will spread into the rest of the MCU; like being a factor with Kang. I feel like they'll be contained just to the Loki series. I feel like the TVA will just monitor Loki, but not the multiverse. I believe Doc Strange will have dibs on monitoring the multiverses.

    I mean the precedent has been set. Wanda got her own thread. I think it’s fair that other shows do as well?

    Bad Batch is from a crap series, and this is Marvel! :p

    Yes, but the point is more along the lines that the MCU threads clog up the front page to a similar degree that the +1 threads did before being moved. And despite reading all the MCU threads and enjoying them, I totally understand why they'd be annoying to non-MCU fans

    But now I'm going to use the time stone and re-close this particular can of worms.

    I vote Bacon for Marvel Forum Mod! I'll bet that forum would be even more fun to mod than the Star Wars forums.

    No, in theaters but as Marvel content.
