As if the slew of new Marvel shows coming to Disney+ weren’t already massive, the studio just confirmed three new series: “Ms. Marvel” (news of which leaked before the D23 panel), as well as “She-Hulk” and “Moon Knight.”
No cast has been announced yet for these upcoming shows:
“She-Hulk” will follow Bruce Banner’s cousin, attorney Jennifer Walters, who gets a radioactive blood transfusion. She first appeared in 1980’s The Savage She-Hulk No. 1, and was the last major Marvel character co-created by Stan Lee.
“Moon Knight” is the vigilante alter ego of mercenary Marc Spector, who also has two other alter egos: millionaire Steven Grant and cab driver Jake Lockley. They may all be coming from Egyptian deity Konshu … or Konshu might also be a figment of Spector’s imagination. Got that?
“Ms. Marvel”: This version of Captain Marvel is a teenager named Kamela Khan, Marvel’s first Muslim character to lead her own comics title. She’s a Pakistani-American who has the ability to stretch and change her shape. The show is in development with British writer Bisha K. Ali to write and act as showrunner.
We’re also getting alternate reality animated series “What If…?” in 2021. “Westworld” star Jeffrey Wright will voice the all-seeing Watcher, who will be “your guide through these vast new realities.”
All these series will be intertwined with Marvel’s theatrical films, meaning they expect you to watch “Falcon & Winter Soldier,” “WandaVision,” “Loki,” “What If…?”,” Hawkeye” and all the MCU movies.
Disney+ launches November 12 in the U.S.
