Disney+ Day ended on a bang with a delectable sizzle reel of teaser footage from Marvel Studios' upcoming roster of small screen projects. In particular, fans got first glimpses at She-Hulk, Moon Knight, and Ms. Marvel — all of which are scheduled to premiere on Disney+ next year.
None of them have specific release dates just yet, although it is confirmed that Ms. Marvel will arrive sometime in summer 2022. Even Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury showed up for a blink-and-you'll-miss-it glimpse at at Secret Invasion. Jackson's co-stars — Ben Mendelsohn (returning as Skrull leader Talos), Emilia Clarke, Kingsley Ben-Adir, and Olivia Colman — on the other hand, remain elusive...for now.
Unfortunately, the reel is only available to current platform subscribers, but we'll be sure to monitor the situation and let you know when (or if) it as it drops onto YouTube or Twitter. If you don't have an account, here's a brief recap of what we saw...
The She-Hulk segment confirms the return of Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Professor Hulk, who helps his cousin, Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany), come to terms with her mean, green transformations. There also seems to be a little WandaVision-esque tomfoolery with some sort of throwback to the groovy 1970s (perhaps a nod to The Incredible Hulk TV show starring Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno?).
Like in the comics, Jennifer will be depicted as an attorney who takes on cases related to super-human individuals. Jameela Jamil and Tim Roth round out the cast as Titania and the Abomination, respectively. The project hails from head writer/EP Jessica Gao, with Kat Coiro with Anu Valia serving as directors.
Moon Knight takes us deep into the shadows where Oscar Isaac's Marc Spector adopts the ultra-violent mantle of the titular vigilante. Based on the official synopsis provided by Disney, it sounds like the project (overseen by head writer Jeremy Slater) will lean into the comic book run by Jeff Lemire and Greg Smallwood, in which Marc grapples with a number of different identities within his own mind. Executive producer Mohamed Diab is directing.
The logline describes Moon Knight as "a new globetrotting action-adventure series featuring a complex vigilante who suffers from dissociative identity disorder. The multiple identities who live inside him find themselves thrust into a deadly war of the gods against the backdrop of modern and ancient Egypt."
Ms. Marvel picks up in Jersey City where alienated Pakistani-American teenager, Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), finds herself gifted with stretchy superpowers. Wanting to be just like her hero, Carol Danvers, Kamala — an aspiring artist, avid gamer, and devoted fan fiction writer — sets out to test these newfound abilities and find her place in the world.
The series hails from head writer/EP Bisha K. Ali. Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah, Meera Menon, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy are directors and executive producers.
The sizzle reel and Disney+ Twitter account reaffirmed a number of shows and specials audiences knew were in the works:
- Ironheart (Dominique Thorne's Riri Williams will make her MCU debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever)
- Echo (a Hawkeye spinoff centered around the character played by Alaqua Cox)
- Loki Season 2
- What If...? Season 2
- I Am Groot (a Baby Groot-centric series from director/EP Kirsten Lepore)
- The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special (written and directed by James Gunn)
- Agatha: House of Harkness (Jac Schaeffer returns as head writer and EP for this WandaVision spinoff centered around Kathryn Hahn's Agatha Harkness)
There were three new titles among the bunch, however:
- A revival of the '90s-era X-Men animated series from head writer/EP, Beau DeMayo
- Marvel Zombies, another animated show hailing from What If...? director/EP Bryan Andrew (we're not sure if it's a spinoff of the What If...? episode or something else entirely)
- Spider-Man: Freshman Year, an animated origin story of Peter Parker's journey as Spider-Man in the MCU from head writer/EP Jeff Trammel. Right now, it's unclear if Tom Holland will lend his voice to Freshman Year.
