Loki, WandaVision and Hawkeye will come in 2021. We'll strangely have a grown up Monica Rambeau in WandaVision. Someone will play Kate Bishop on Hawkeye and judging from the logo we know what run they'll be borrowing from, so count me excited.

As hoped, the Super Bowl gave us a teaser trailer for the first three upcoming Disney+/Marvel TV series:
Let me just start by saying that, while it all looks really good, I'm especially fucking pumped for WandaVision. It looks like they're really willing to go out and do something weird, and I love it. I feel like Elizabeth Olsen has an underutilized emotional range and talent for whimsy and humor (we got a taste for it in that cute little Civil War bit), and it'll be neat to see her push the boundaries of her character in her own series. Even from the few brief flashes we get, it does seem to confirm that the common factor in Wanda's reality-warping antics will be television shows.
I suspect the scene with the wingsuits is probably a flashback to Falcon's training in the elite paratrooper rescue program that got him his literal wings, which suggests we're getting a bit of an origin story. That looks like USAgent showing up at the halftime show.
And Loki is Loki. Not a lot to go on there, but he looks like he's some kind of prisoner? Recall that this series is about the Loki that escaped with the Tesseract midway through Endgame, so he is still very much at odds with Thor and is a very angry and pained character who hasn't even touched his redemption arc yet.
Production costs look very high, as expected after seeing the kind of money Disney was willing to throw at The Mandalorian. I imagine these are loss leaders designed to hook people on Disney+, but they should also recoup some just by keeping the hype for the MCU alive while they get Phase 4 back in gear and roll into Phase 5.
I was thinking about it more or less in the same lines. Each project with have plot/character/pacing issues to address, to name a few, but at least it seems that both wanting to do something interesting and budget won't be troubles to consider. I'm hopeful, how much I loved The Mandalorian got me there even if it's a different piece of the pie, I'm eager to see how they fare from August forward.
At first reading that WandaVision would play pastiche to sitcoms and other tv classics had me worried (one of the trailer scenes clearly looks like a pastiche of I Love Lucy).
But if the speculation that this is part of or a prelude to Avengers Disassembled is right, I’m on board. Especially if they can somehow reboot the now Disney owned X-Verse with a House of M storyline, easily my favorite Marvel event.
Yeah, we have some I Love Lucy in the black and white scene, perhaps Bewitched with the costumed bit, the warm kitchen has a Brady Bunch feel, the suspenders and plaid moment seems Rosanne-like and it seems that the cribs moment is (amusingly enough) a Full House nod. And both having her as the Strange villain (even if that would be pushing Mordo away) and something along the lines of a retooled House of M thing could be cool.
