There has already been an experience with programs like Agents of Shield or the entries of Marvel and Netflix.
However, WandaVision y The Falcon and the Winter Soldier maintain a stronger connection with the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe than its predecessors. In this sense, an important actor in the MCU participated in the series TFATWS, Don cheadle, which personifies James Rhodes, alias: War Machine.
