D23 Expo 2019: 'Ms. Marvel', 'Moon Knight' and 'She-Hulk' series coming to Disney + as part of MCU's Phase 4
Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige announced that these three live-action series are in development. The release dates will be announced shortly
'She-Hulk', 'Ms. Marvel' and 'Moon Knight' will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At the Disney 23 annual conventions, Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige announced that these three live-action series are in development, and all of them are derived from the comics. In what comes as a heartening piece of news, 'Ms. Marvel' will also be featured in the movies
The TV side of Phase 4 already boasts some impressive shows in 'The Falcon and The Winter Soldier', 'Loki', 'Hawkeye', and 'WandaVision'. Plus, the animated 'What If' that presents some outlandish spins on the MCU movies.
'She-Hulk' was created by the late Stan Lee and John Buscema and made her debut as a superhero in the 1980s. Aka Jennifer Walters, she's a lawyer by profession and is Bruce Banner's cousin. A blood transplant from him following a medical emergency sees her acquire the Hulk's abilities. Walters has been part of the Avengers, The Fantastic Four and S.H.I.E.L.D.
Details about 'She-Hulk' are still scarce, but it does represent the passing of the torch. The next wave of films and shows have been dealing with aspects of legacy, beginning with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) passing the baton on to Peter Parker (Tom Holland) in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'.
'Moon Knight' aka Marc Spector is a former CIA agent saved by the Moon God, Khonshu, after being nearly killed by the terrorist Bushman. Spector goes on to kill Bushman, inheriting the mantle of 'Moon Knight'. It is interesting to see if Marvel will bring in a Batman-ish tone to the series given the superhero's origins are similar to that of Bruce Wayne. Moon Knight was created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin. He first appeared in the August 1975 issue Werewolf by Night #32.
'Ms. Marvel' has been the topic of discussion ever since 'Captain Marvel' hit theatres this year and fans are stoked about the news of the female superhero making an entrance. The story focuses teenager Kamela Khan, a Pakistani-American from a religious family in New Jersey with polymorphous powers and has the ability to stretch and change shape. The comic won a Hugo Award for best graphic story in 2015. The project is in early development and no timeline has been set as to when it will hit screens.
