Disney Plus Day: Every Marvel Announcement
Disney+ Day Marvel announcements
Disney is putting a lot of investment into the future of its streaming service, as which was seen during Disney+ Day. The company made a plethora of big announcements from Star Wars to Pixar to revamps of beloved Disney classics. However, the final handful of announcements all revolved around upcoming Marvel TV shows.
While many of the announcements were of shows announced in 2020, we did get to see some actual footage from upcoming shows like Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight--and the hype is real. Sadly, you can only watch the footage if you have a Disney+ account, as it is locked away on the streaming service.
Luckily, we kept track of all the announcements for Marvel during Disney+ Day. Additionally, some more information was revealed in a press release about many of the shows, which is also gathered below. Check out all the Marvel announcements during Disney+ Day.
November 12's Disney+ Day offered up a lot of big announcements about upcoming TV shows and movies coming to the service. The first sizzle reel for the Star Wars Obi-Wan show arrived, which featured director Deborah Chow and star Ewan McGregor talking about the upcoming series. The Big Hero 6 spinoff Baymax got its first trailer, and Baymax is just as charming as you remember. Willow got a "meet the cast" video that is way funnier than it needs to be. The beloved Predator films are getting a prequel movie on Hulu. And while it didn't happen during Disney+ Day, the first reactions to Marvel's Hawkeye hit social media.
Agatha: House of Harkness
Spinning out of WandaVision is Agatha: House of Harkness. The show was previous announced in October, and it is being described as a "dark comedy." The logo was revealed during Disney+ Day, and Kathryn Hahn will reprise her role as the titular evil witch. Jac Schaefer returns as executive producer and head writer.
Coming in 2023...
The announcement of X-Men '97 was probably the biggest surprise of Disney+ Day. It's a long way off, but the new animated series will take place where the original Fox cartoon left off. Beau DeMayo is executive producer and head writer.
While Hawkeye hasn't aired yet, there is already a spin-off coming. Announced back in March, the series is about the deaf Native American here played by Alaqua Cox--and she was cast back in December for Hawkeye. Etan Cohen and Emily Cohen will write and executive produce.
I Am Groot
I Am Groot is a new animated series about everyone's favorite alien who is also a living tree, Groot. It will follow him as a baby, growing up. It is directed by executive producer Kirsten Lepore. The series was originally announced December 2020.
With Iron Man no longer a part of the MCU, someone has to take up the mantle, right? Dominique Thorne will play Riri Williams, a super-genius who wears the most-advanced suit of armor on Earth. The series was originally announced December 2020.
Coming in 2022...
Moon Knight starring Oscar Isaac has been in the works for a while, and during Disney+ Day, we got our first footage from the series, and while it was short, it looked awesome. We haven't seen a full look at the costume yet, but the series seemingly deals with a hero with multiple personalities and Egyptian lore--much like Charlie Huston and David Finch's run of the Marvel comic. Moon Knight is directed by executive producer Mohamed Diab, with Jeremy Slater as head writer.
Coming Summer 2022...
Finally, we get to see Kamala Khan in her Carol Danvers cosplay. Sadly, during the first footage of the show, Khan never yells "Embiggen!" We're all sure the show will rectify that. Ms. Marvel is directed by executive producers Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah, Meera Menon and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, with executive producer Bisha K. Ali serving as head writer.
Captain Marvel really set the stage for this show, and while there was no footage for the upcoming series, we did get to see the logo for it again. The show stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, the Skrull.
Coming in 2022...
The series got a brand-new logo, but more importantly, we got to see new footage. There were no full shots of Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) hulking out, but we did get a glimpse of the back of the costume and her green skin. She-Hulk is directed by executive producer Kat Coiro with Anu Valia also directing. Executive producer Jessica Gao serves as head writer.
Spider-Man: Freshman Year
There is a new animated series coming to Disney+ following Spider-Man (well, Peter Parker). The show follows Parker on his journey to become Spider-Man in the MCU. Jeff Trammel will be the head writer and executive producer.
What If...? (Season 2)
The hit Disney+series about the MCU multiverse will return. Season 2 will be directed by executive producer Bryan Andrews with executive producer AC Bradley serving as head writer.
Spinning out of What If...?--and the wildly popular comic series--Marvel Zombies is an animated series about... well... zombies. It will be directed by executive producer Bryan Andrews.
