While Marvel Studios is inching closer to its next run in theaters after a long two-year delay, Phase 4's Disney+ exclusives are garnering quite the slew of praise from fans and critics alike.
Loki is already setting records with the most-viewed premiere in Disney+ history while Tom Hiddleston, Elizabeth Olsen, and Anthony Mackie took their roles to the advertising world for car commercials.
Additionally, Disney and Marvel Studios are gearing up for their first run in the TV awards sphere with the 2021 Emmys preparing for its September 19, 2021 airing date. While Loki missed the cut-off and will wait for its potential shine until 2022, both WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier have a chance to take home plenty of hardware against expectedly tough competition.
In preparation for this event, Marvel Studios is ramping up its promotional tour once again with a look back at its most recent Disney+ outing.
"WE CAN DO BETTER"
Marvel, via The Hollywood Reporter Instagram's account, released a 15-second ad for Marvel Studios' The Falcon and the Winter Soldier as part of the show's "For Your Consideration" tour ahead of the 2021 Emmys.
The ad features clips from the show's fifth and sixth episodes along with reviews from The Baltimore Sun, The Hollywood Reporter, and ABC.

THE MCU AWARDS CAMPAIGN CONTINUES
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier received rave reviews right from the start as Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan brought their roles back in their first post-Endgame Phase 4 outing. With top-notch action sequences and comedy that also included a meaningful look at real life, the series struck a chord with critics and fans alike as a new Captain America came to the forefront.
Mackie and Stan head up a slew of actors in line for awards recognition for their on-camera work while director Kari Skogland and head writer Malcolm Spellman lead the charge for behind-the-scenes personnel. Disney submitted names for 18 different categories, and even going up against a peer as strong as WandaVision, Phase 4's second outing should have a good chance to get its due praise.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is already a hit amongst the fan base and led to the almost immediate green light for Captain America 4, which will bring back Mackie and Spellman. For now, Marvel is fully moving forward with pushing its work for Emmys consideration, and it will be exciting to see how full the studios' trophy case is in just a few months.
All six episodes of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier are available to stream on Disney+. The 2021 Emmys will air on September 19, 2021.
