Marvel Official Announces SHE-HULK, MOON KNIGHT, and MS. MARVEL Shows For Disney+!
Today at Disney’s D23 Expo, Marvel Studios officially announced three new Disney+ series that are in development! Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and the one that I’ve been hoping to see made for a long time… She-Hulk!
There were no details revealed for these shows. They were just announced, and Marvel also shared the following title logos!
Ms. Marvel is being developed by British writer Bisha K. Ali, who will write and act as showrunner on the series. Ali is a comedian who is currently a writer on Hulu’s remake of Four Weddings and a Funeral.
The series will be inspired by and focus on the most recent incarnation of the character, a teenager named Kamela Khan. Ms. Marvel is a shape-shifting Muslim Pakistani-American teenager from New Jersey, who becomes the newest holder of the Ms. Marvel identity. She is the youngest of two children from a traditional Pakistani Family. Her powers have been described as polymorphous, meaning she has the ability to stretch and change her shape.
Despite her traditional roots, Kamala was the typical American teenager. Wanting to be herself, but still make her family proud. For several years, Kamala was a fan of superheroes especially the Avengers and, more importantly, Carol Danvers. So much, in fact, that she started writing online fan-fiction about the Avengers and Captain Marvel. Even going as far as joining the Carol Danvers Corps online.
Moon Knight is a fan-favorite Marvel character, so it makes sense that they would eventually bring the character to life in some way. Just in case you need a reminder of who Moon Knight is:
Moon Knight, Marc Spector, Steven Grant and Jake Lockley: four different aspects of the same man who was resurrected by Khonshu, the Egyptian Lunar-God of Vengeance and Justice to serve as his "avatar". Those unjust mortals who prey upon the innocents who travel at night, with powers that come from the moon, beware the Vengeance of the Moon Knight!
He's a dark and gritty character that would work great as a series!
I loved the most recent incarnation of the character that was recently cancelled by Marvel Comics, and I love that She-Hulk is finally getting a series! I’m a big fan of this character.
After the events of Civil War II, Jennifer Walters ended up becoming Marvel’s signature Hulk and she got her comic series that told some great stories that dealt with the psychological trauma that superheroes suffer.
Are you excited about these new shows announced!?
