MARVEL boss Kevin Feige has revealed what his future plans are for upcoming miniseries WandaVision and other shows such as Loki and Falcon & The Winter Solider.
The nine-part show, which is due to hit our screens this Friday on popular streaming service Disney+, looks like it's already in talks for another season.
The American film and TV producer has been a very busy man over the past year and now has at least 17 projects on the go, ready to be released over the next two years.
And while a new season of the telly show is expected ever year, Kevin recently explained that all of the approaching Disney+ shows will "vary" – with some as one-offs and others with a "couple of years" between production.
He explained: "It will vary. There are some shows that have been built to further expand our storytelling and then go into features."
The 47-year-old president of Marvel Studios added: "There are some shows that, while always interconnected, are being built with multiple seasons in mind.
"So it’ll vary the way a lot of I think great TV now varies, whether it’s a couple of years between seasons of Game of Thrones or Stranger Things, or one-offs like Queen’s Gambit.
"One of the fun things about streaming is the rules are loose, which allows for you to just follow creatively where you want to go."
The likes of WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier were supposed to be released onto the streaming service last year.
But due to Covid-19, production was put on hold.

WandaVision will premiere the first two episodes on January 15, 2021, and will release the following seven episodes over the next two months.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is also due to air later March later this year and Loki will follow shortly after in May – and they will also be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Kevin also spoke out about why he loved working on WandaVision, explaining that he became "psychologically attached to a lot of pretend TV characters".
He explained: "Wanda and Vision are great characters in the comics that we don’t scratch the surface of in the movies, played by actors who are so spectacular, and we’ve only scratched the surface of what they can do.
"Putting the spotlight on those actors playing those characters was the primary reason to want to make WandaVision.
"The way we made it is in large part because I spent an inordinate amount of time as a child watching TV and syndicated repeats of lots of sitcoms. I’m old enough that I remember when Nick at Nite was a new thing."
Kevin also teased that fans may be able to recognise similarities between the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and certain things that happen in the MCU.
He added: "As we started getting into a global pandemic last March and April and May, we started to go, holy mackerel, the Blip, this universal experience.
"This experience that affected every human on Earth, now has a direct parallel between what people who live in the MCU had encountered, and what all of us in the real world have encountered.
"And it has been quite interesting, as you will see, in a number of our upcoming projects, the parallels where it will very much seem like people are talking about the COVID pandemic.
"Within the context of the MCU, they’re talking about the Blip."
Watch WandaVision this Friday (January 15) on Disney+.
