Season 1, episode 11... Hm. WandaVision was 9 episodes and FatWS and Loki were both 6 episodes and those are the only canon MCU TV shows so I can't imagine what you're getting at here.

at some point James Gunn said theyre not canon, but it wasnt some kind of intentional official announcement, and he could be wrong

if ever a day comes that the canonicity of that stuff is relevant, maybe well get some kind of official word... so whenever Daredevil shows up again, probably.

Anything, absolutely anything from the non-Disney+ TV shows that disagrees with the movies is automatically not canon. If Civil War says the death toll of the Battle of New York is a given number then that is canon and Agents of SHIELD giving a different number isn't. The Disney+ shows are being held in the same level of regard as the movies going forward, but all of the other shows that tried to link to the MCU are not part of the overall canon unless one of the movies or a Disney+ show says so.

Mutliverasal MADNESS!!! We're also supposed to see Toby the terrible, Andrew Garfield, several actors that played as villains to either of them and who knows what, plus JK Simmons as J Jonah Jameson! But none of those old Spiderman movies are going to be canon to the MCU, it's just going to be them having fun with the multiverse.

Finished catching up to the MCU today so here are some thoughts about the post-Endgame stuff:

Wandavision: Neat idea from a meta standpoint. Liked seeing the sitcom permutation through the decades. The "real world" scenes are pretty awful though: Randall Park is good, but everything else was super dry/cliche. Last battle was Suicide Squad level bad. Kind of got me hyped for Dr. Strange 2, so it did its job I guess. Also, goddamn Elizabeth Olsen is hot. 6/10

F&WS: This was honestly pretty bad. Too preachy and too padded out. There's no reason this should be 6 hours:cut it down to 2.5 hours and call it Cap 4. The Sharon twist is really forced/unearned/out of nowhere. Falcap's costume needs work. Bucky/Sebastian Stan was the highlight for sure. 4/10

Loki: And now, the polar opposite problem that F&WS had. This show needs to be longer and more fleshed out. There's honestly two six-episode seasons worth of content crammed into this. As people have said already, Loki's sort of "face turn" needs time to really develop for it to actually work, and the premise itself would benefit from a few "monster of the week" type episodes. The actors are all pretty good here, Hiddleston and Wilson obviously being standouts. Really nice aesthetic. Clearly the most "high concept" Marvel's ever gotten, even if this means it's derivative somewhat of Dr. Who/R&M. 8/10

Black Widow: Starts off with promise, and then it remembers it's a Marvel movie. There is such a ridiculous tonal shift in the last act here from spy thriller to superhero fluff. It honestly seems insulting. The decision to make the main villain basically a human trafficker is interesting, because the whole "women as resources" thing is a real issue facing the world today, but they throw that out the window by giving him a floating fortress and generic evil dude. Meanwhile, the side characters start out as morally grey antagonists and by the end we're supposed to see them as Bob's Burgers characters basically. The Red Guardian is an abusive, cruel, failed Captain America and Rachel Weisz's character is a mad scientist who tortures a pig in front of us, and half an hour later we're supposed to view them as a happy yet dysfunctional family. Doesn't work. Fun fight scenes though. It's not the worst Marvel film, but it's at the low end of the mediocre tier. 5/10.

Charlie Cox just had to pull out of some fan event thing due to a last minute filming situation just as reshoots for No Way Home have started up

so it seems pretty dang certain at this point that theyre bringing him back as Matt Murdock, which is very exciting to me since it also clearly opens the door to Vincent DOnofrio returning as Kingpin too (and maybe Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones which is cool too... and then also I guess maybe any of the other people from those shows which would range from kinda cool to not very cool)

They had US Agent straight up execute a guy who had surrendered, and then gave him a bit of redemption at the end. I dont think Punisher is necessarily out of the question.
Hes not really a cop and he mostly kills really bad, weird European guys, so its fine.

u.s. agent only killed one guy, though, and he did so in a blind rage because his best friend had just been killed. punisher is more like a john wick type of character who regularly kills people. i wouldn't say the two are comparable.

At this point, I think Marvel is just about ready to shelve the Punisher entirely. They haven't had an on-going Punisher title for a couple of years and his last limited series is all about him not being the one that killed the bad guys. He's been a supporting character in other stories more recently, but even then it feels like they've been leaning in more on "look at how bad he is for killing people" while actually having him kill fewer people.

With the way the character and his symbol have been misappropriated in recent times this trend isn't changing, and the big D isn't going to want him related to any of their big MCU projects.

I think it is less about the R rating, and more about how the Punisher's symbol has been co-opted by cops.

If you play the final episodes of both concurrently, Agatha and Kang drop at literally the exact same time. Like to the millisecond. That was no accident.

It's hard to know for sure until Doctor Strange comes out, but I'm still a little doubtful that the Disney+ shows will really be required viewing. I still expect the movies to be written in a way where viewers will still be able to understand 99% of things without watching the TV shows.

Like yes technically Loki ended with a huge game changer that sets up the events of Phase 4 going forward, but at the same time I'm sure the movies will introduce the multiverse in a sufficient manner all on their own.

The only questionable thing right now is how they'll handle Loki showing up again in a movie. Other characters like Monica and Walker should be easy to re-introduce in the movies. I guess White Vision could be complicated if he ever shows back up.

I think you can introduce this Loki in a movie pretty easily because the other characters wont know whats gone on with him. You just get Strange or whoever to be like youre dead, and this Lokis like no, your Loki is dead, Im this different Loki

It's not Loki existing at all that's the thing, so much as how will they explain how he gets from the end of Loki S1 to wherever he's popping up next. Unless the TVA itself is showing up in Strange 2 or something, which could certainly happen.

Wanda seems like she'll be really difficult to explain without her show (she's looking for her and Vision's kids that may or may not exist) but also kind of easy because she had basically no presence outside of it. And Strange can easily explain her magic. I suppose it'll depend on how much her character arc features.

I already see them doing a bunch of jokes about no one believing TVA Loki isnt the dead Loki whenever he inevitably shows up elsewhere.

Most of the movies aren't even necessary to follow along with the Infinity Saga, so I doubt these shows will be absolutely must watch even though they're clearly laying the groundwork for the next saga. I mean, If you watch just the Avengers movies, The Captain America Movies and the first Guardians of the Galaxy you know like 90% of that whole story line. You could just not watch Hulk/Captain Marvel/The Ant-Man movies and you're not really missing much at all, and I'm sure Multiverse of Madness will make it so you don't need to see WandaVision or Loki to keep up with the overall story.

The thing is 2/3 of these shows have major character resurrections, so sure, Dr. Strange 2 can have a throwaway line about Vision being alive, but I highly doubt they're going to have a flashback/joke/recap that does a satisfying job of explaining that, so people are going to think they need to watch the shows.

It's a business strategy basically.
