Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige is pulling back the curtain on the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe following Avengers: Endgame.

During a presentation for investors Thursday in Burbank, the exec touted several upcoming Marvel series for Disney+, Disney’s upcoming streaming service.

“These will be both new and continuing stories,” said Feige. “These will be major storylines set in the MCU with ramifications that will be felt both through the other Disney+ series we’ll be producing and the future on the big screen.”

He also revealed that WandaVision will be the title of a new series starring Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen, in which they will reprise their film roles as Vision and the Scarlet Witch, respectively.

“This story is definitely something unexpected and surprising, as well as something we could only do in a longform series,” said Feige of the project, which has Captain Marvel screenwriter Jac Schaeffer serving as showrunner.

Feige also revealed the studio would be debuting its first animated series What If, which is based off of the classic comic book series which looks at key moments in Marvel history and asks, “What if things had gone differently?” It will feature voice talent from Marvel’s big-screen projects, and the first episode will ask what if Peggy Carter had taken the super soldier serum, leaving Steve Rogers as a scrawny kid who eventually joins the World War II fight thanks to a metal suit made by Tony Stark’s father Howard Stark.
