Marvel Reveals New Series and New Details About Old Series On ‘Investors Day’

On Thursday, Disney hosted its annual Investor Day event. Announced earlier this year, Disney plans to shift its business model to focus more on its streaming platform.

The Disney+ platform currently has 86.8 Million subscribers and their stock is currently at an all-time high. Why wouldn’t they go for more?

Disney’s Chairman of Media and Entertainment Distribution, Kareem Daniel, announced more than 50 new projects currently in the works for their Disney+ streaming service.

Here’s all the Marvel news announced during their Investor Day event:

WandaVision

The final trailer for the upcoming Disney Plus series WandaVision showcases a more in-depth look at the “unusual couple”. Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany will reprise their MCU roles as the Scarlet Witch and Vision in this family sitcom-inspired new series.

WandaVision will premiere on January 15, 2021.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier

This new exclusive first look highlights Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (Sebstian Stan) following the events of Avengers: Endgame.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will premiere March of 2021.

Loki

Described as a “crime thriller”, the new Loki trailer gives us a glimpse into the god’s batch of mischief post-Endgame.

Loki will premier May of 2021.

What If…?

With the introduction of a multiverse, this new animated series explores what would happen in Marvel stories – but with a twist. The omniscient Watcher guides viewers through different alternate realities in which we see Peggy Carter with the super soldier serum, T’Challa growing up with Yondu in space, and more.

What If…? will debut in Summer of 2021.

Hawkeye

The new series features Jeremy Renner reprising his role as Hawkeye and introduces Hailee Steinfeld as The Better Hawkeye – Kate Bishop. The series is heavily inspired by Matt Fraction’s comic run from 2012-2015.

Hawkeye will premier Fall of 2021.

Ms. Marvel

Marvel newcomer Iman Vellani will star as Kamala Khan in the new Ms. Marvel series. The series focuses on Pakistani-American with an affinity for superheroes before she becomes one herself.

Ms. Marvel will debut in late 2021.

She-Hulk

Tatiana Maslany is set to appear as Jennifer Walters in the new She-Hulk series. The series is also set to showcase other Hulk characters, including Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, and Tim Roth returning as Abomination.

A release date has not yet been announced for She-Hulk.

Moon Knight

Focusing on a vigilante suffering from dissociative identity disorder, this series follows Marc Spector aka Moon Knight as he learns how to manage the multiple identities inside him.

A release date has not yet been announced for Moon Knight.

Secret Invasion

Samuel L. Jackson will reprise his role as Director Fury in this new show. Ben Mendelsohn will also reprise his role as the Skrull, Talos from the first Captain Marvel film. Based on the 2008 crossover event where the shapeshifting Skrulls had infiltrated every level of human society — including the heroes themselves — this story could completely change the MCU in its current state.

A release date has not yet been announced for Secret Invasion.

Armor Wars

Don Cheadle reprises his role as James Rhodes aka War Machine as he tries to stop Tony Stark’s technology from falling into the wrong hands.

A release date has not yet been announced for Armor Wars.

I Am Groot

Everyone’s favorite space-traveling tree will star in several new shorts with some familiar faces and unusual new friends.

A release date has not yet been announced for I Am Groot.

Ironheart

In the comics, Ironheart is Riri Williams — a Black 16-year-old girl genius who reverse engineers Tony Stark’s Iron Man technology and makes her own version of his armor in her garage, becoming a superhero like her scientific idol. Dominique Thorne (If Beale Street Could Talk) will play the title role. Dominique is undoubtedly older than 16, so we will have to see whether they age the character or ask the actor to “play young.” Smart money is on the latter.

A release date has not yet been announced for Ironheart.
