There are a lot of reasons to watch the Super Bowl, and so many of them have so little to do with the game. For fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the fourth quarter of the game couldn’t come soon enough. Thanks to a leak from Reddit, we knew that a trailer for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier would be on the way. Yet, what we ended up with was so much more. The Super Bowl Ad from Marvel Studios highlighted three of their upcoming series for Disney+, including WandaVision and Loki.

After set photos of US Agent leaked from filming, we know that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will likely follow the rumored storyline we reported some months back. We see a glimpse of the “official” Captain America replacement being greeted on an All-American football field. We also see Daniel Brühl’s return in the series as Zemo. Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson practices throwing the shield and does fancy flying as Falcon. Sebastian Stan’s Bucky seems as surly as ever. It’s the perfect tease.

WandaVision and Loki Get Teased in the Ad As Well

Marvel Studios Disney+ Series Super Bowl Ad

On the leaked production notes, the Marvel Studios Super Bowl ad was listed as for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier alone not all the Disney+ series. Yet, that’s precisely what we got. We see the first footage from WandaVision and can glean quite a bit from it. We know that this is a strange series that focuses on Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff and her grief over losing Paul Bettany’s Vision. (There is also a glimpse of Wanda in her classic comic book costume!) We also know that it will be a big part of the Multiverse saga in the MCU.

In the clips we see Wanda and Vision taking on the looks of classic situation comedies. There is the black and white of shows like I Love Lucy or The Dick Van Dyke show. Then there is the muted (but still vibrant) colors of a 1970s-era The Brady Bunch. Also, it seems like there are a few scenes of the characters in a 1990s-era family comedy like Roseanne. But there is also an interesting scene where Wanda and Vision stand on a dark set and move is an eerie way. Thus, we can surmise that Wanda will use her reality-bending powers to create the “perfect” life for her and Vision. Color us intrigued.

Marvel Studios Disney+ Series Super Bowl Ad Loki

Finally, we get a short snippet of Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, which is a limited series following his adventures after disappearing in Avengers: Endgame. Yet, he seems to be in trouble, because he’s wearing a kind of prison jumpsuit with bound hands. He promises to burn whatever place he is in to the ground. The smart money says that the logo on his jumpsuit belongs to the Time Variance Authority, a kind of time-travel police in the Marvel Comics Universe. It would make sense that a Loki fleeing through time and space with the Tesseract would run into them.
