 - "WandaVision" on Disney+

 - "Lost In Space" on Netflix

 - Other Marvel shows on Disney+

 - "For All Mankind" on Apple TV+

 - "Shang-Chi"

 - "No Time to Die"

 - "Ghostbusters: Afterlife"

 - "Black Widow"

 - "Zack Snyder’s Justice League"

We also talked about what we're looking forward to and hoping for in 2022.

 - Season 3 of "The Orville" comes in March, with Babylon 5's Bruce Boxleitner playing the role of a blue-skinned alien president.

 - A possible Babylon 5 reboot

 - More of "The Book of Boba Fett" (one episode already released at the very tail end of 2021)
