ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA — FEBRUARY 17, 2023
Peyton Reed is back to direct the third Ant-Man film, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, and Michelle Pfeiffer all return. Kathryn Newton joins the cast as Cassie Lang alongside Lovecraft Country star Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror.

Deaf superhero, Maya Lopez/Echo, who will be debuting in Hawkeye, will be getting her own spin off series starring Alaqua Cox, coming soon to Disney+
LOKI – SEASON 2 – Summer 2023
The god of mischief is coming back to wreck more havoc on the multiverse! As of the end of Season 1, Loki Season 2 has been officially announced!
THE MARVELS — July 28, 2023
Feige announced that Ms. Marvel star, Iman Vellani, and WandaVision star, Teyonah Parris, would be joining the cast of Captain Marvel 2, under director Nia DaCosta, showcasing the interconnectivity of the Disney+ series with the MCU film slate!
Among the rest of the slate, Feige announced many other undated releases, including some that were never previously announced prior to the Disney Investors Presentation. Here’s a breakdown of those exciting titles, along with Marvel’s official statements:
IRONHEART – Fall 2023
Dominique Thorne is genius inventor Riri Williams in Ironheart, an Original Series about the creator of the most advanced suit of armor since Iron Man. I’ve loved Riri ever since she came into the scene! Glad we’re going to see her soon!
AGATHA: COVEN OF CHAOS – Winter 2023/2024
Everyone’s favorite nosey neighbor turned witch-we-love-to-hate will be getting her own series, starring the amazing Kathryn Hahn, coming soon to Disney+
DAREDEVIL: BORN AGAIN – Spring 2024
One of the biggest and most exciting surprises to come out of Kevin Feige’s presentation at San Diego Comic Con 2022 was the announcement of an 18-episode series called Daredevil: Born Again. Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio will be reprising their iconic roles from the original Netflix series, along with Spider-Man: No Way Home and Hawkeye. It’s very likely Echo will be leading into this series.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: NEW WORLD ORDER – May 3, 2024
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s Malcolm Spellman has been tapped to write the next installment of the Captain America franchise, with Sam Wilson officially picking up the shield and mantle.
THUNDERBOLTS – July 26, 2024
On June 9th, 2022, Deadline reported that Marvel Studios has hired Jake Schreier (Robot and Frank) to helm the MCU’s version of Thunderbolts. During D23, Kevin Feige confirmed the team roster: Yelena Belova, Bucky, Red Guardian, Ghost, US Agent, and Taskmaster, who will all report into Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s Valentina Allegra De Fontaine. But I have a feeling we’ll be hearing very soon about what’s going to happen with these super-powered rogues!
Thunderbolts will be the conclusion of Phase 5 of the MCU.
BLADE – September 6, 2024
Though we heard about it last year at Comic Con, Feige made a brief reminder that we can expect The Daywalker to return, played by two-time Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, in the near future!
DEADPOOL III – November 8, 2024
It was announced by Ryan Reynolds that Hugh Jackman would be coming back once more to play Wolverine in the new installment of the franchise, which will be directly set in the MCU!
FANTASTIC FOUR – February 14, 2025
Directed by Matt Shakman (WandaVision) and written by Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer!
AVENGERS: THE KANG DYNASTY – May 2, 2025
At Comic-Con 2022, Kevin Feige took to the stage to officially announce the 5th and 6th Avengers movies. The first will be The Kang Dynasty. We know He Who Remains made his debut in Loki, but his variant Kang the Conqueror will be making his debut in Quantumania. By the title of this movie, it sounds like his nefarious deeds will extend beyond the Quantum Realm in ways that will require the heroes Marvel Cinematic Universe to team up against him. There’s no doubt this will have to lead into Secret Wars since that’s only a few months after this one. Speaking of which…
AVENGERS: SECRET WARS- May 1, 2026
Speculation is rampant now about how The Kang Dynasty will lead to Secret Wars. The villain of the 2015 Secret Wars storyline was actually Doom, who took the powers of the Beyonder to create Battleworld, and make himself Emperor Doom. Perhaps The Kang Dynasty will end with Doom taking powers or tech from Kang? We’ll just have to wait 3 long years to find out.
Don Cheadle returns as James Rhodes aka War Machine (aka Rhodey) in Armor Wars, an Original Series coming to Disney+. A classic Marvel story about Tony Stark’s worst fear coming true: what happens when his tech falls into the wrong hands?
THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY HOLIDAY SPECIAL
The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special. James Gunn is back to write and direct.
The Original Special is coming to Disney+ in 2022.
WHAT IF…? SEASON 2
During Disney+ Day, Marvel Studios officially announced Season 2 of What If…? will be coming soon to Disney+
We saw them in What If…? this past summer. Now the Marvel Zombies are coming back to invade in their all new animated series, coming soon to Disney+!
SPIDER-MAN: FRESHMAN YEAR
During the Disney+ Day presentation, Marvel Studios announced a new Spider-Man animated series chronicling the Freshman Year days of everyone’s favorite wall-crawler! Spider-Man: Freshman Year will be coming soon to Disney+.
Marvel Studios is officially creating a sequel series to the seminal X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon which aired from 1992 to 1997! The highly anticipated series will debut soon on Disney+!
Phew! I’m both pumped up and exhausted at the same time! And I haven’t felt that since Comic-Con last year!
Get psyched folks!! And Make Mine Marvel! Excelsior!!!
