The MCU is expanding on Disney+ with three more series, “Ms. Marvel,” “Moon Knight” and “She-Hulk,” set for the upcoming streaming service.
Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige made the announcements Friday at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, during the Disney+ showcase.
In the comics, Ms. Marvel is the name used by two different superheroes — first by Carol Danvers, now known as Captain Marvel, and then Kamala Khan, a teenager with the power to enlarge or shrink any part of herself she wants, who adopts the name in tribute to Danvers. The “Ms. Marvel” series will feature Kamela Khan, who is notable as the first Muslim character in Marvel’s 80-year history to headline her own comic. Feige said the character would also appear in future films.
Moon Knight, aka Marc Spector, is a former CIA agent who was almost killed by a terrorist named Bushman, before his life was saved by the Moon God Khonshu. Four different personalities all fight for control over his body. She-Hulk is based on Jennifer Walters, who develops her own unique Hulk powers after getting a blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo in the MCU) .
With the three new shows, that makes eight total series from Marvel Studios for Disney+, joining “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” “WandaVision,” “Loki,” “Hawkeye” and the animated “What If…” “Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” which also brings back Daniel Bruhl as Helmut Zemo from “Captain America: Civil War,” will premiere in Fall 2020. “WandaVision” and “Loki” will stream Spring 2021, with “What If…” in Summer 2021 and “Hawkeye,” which will see Kate Bishop introduced, will premiere in Fall 2021.
“WandaVision” will also introduce the adult version of Monica Rambeau aka Photon, played by Teyonah Parris. The character was first introduced as a child in the 1990s-set “Captain Marvel.” Feige also announced that both Randall Park and Kat Dennings would be reprising their MCU roles for the series, along with Katherine Hahn joining the series.
For “Falcon and The Winter Soldier,” Feige confirmed that Emily Van Camp would be returning as Sharon Carter, which TheWrap previously reported. Wyatt Russell is also joining the series as John Walker, better known as U.S. Agent in the comics.
Disney+ is set to launch on Nov. 12 and will cost $6.99 a month or $69.99 for the whole year.
