Notable among the Marvel productions are a Tom Hiddleston-helmed Loki series; WandaVision, with Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprising their roles as the Avengers couple Scarlet Witch and Vision; Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan as fan-favorite tandem The Falcon and The Winter Soldier; as well as a recently announced Hawkeye series starring Jeremy Renner.
Star Wars fans have plenty to look forward to with Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian, the first ever live-action Star Wars series, which follows the exploits of a bounty hunter successor to Jango and Boba Fett. All Star Wars movies will be available within the first year as well.
