D23: Marvel Announces New Disney+ Series SHE-HULK, MOON KNIGHT and MS. MARVEL!

As if you needed any more reason to get the Disney+ streaming service when it drops on November 12th, Marvel and Disney have announced more limited Marvel series that will unleash on the platform in the future.

Itwas confirmed yesterday at the D23 Fan Expo that we will be getting three more iconic superhero shows which will include SHE-HULK. MOON KNIGHT and MS. MARVEL. These properties are lesser known to mainstream fans out there so it is awesome that they will be getting a larger stage to get introduced to fans who might have not followed them in the comics.

She-Hulk debuted in Marvel Comics’ “Savage She-Hulk” #1 in 1980, created by writer Stan Lee and artist John Buscema. Her alter ego is Jennifer Walters, the cousin of Bruce Banner/Hulk, who after being shot is provided a blood transfusion from Bruce that turns her into a similar green monster. She later became a member of the Avengers and briefly replaced Ben Grimm in The Fantastic Four.

Created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin in 1975 for “Werewolf by Night” #32, Moon Knight is the alter ego of Marc Spector is a Jewish-American rabbi’s son who grew up to become a heavyweight boxer and then a U.S. Marine. Left for dead on a mission in Egypt, he’s taken to a temple devoted to the god Khonshu, and agrees to become the god’s avatar on Earth.

Though the Ms. Marvel moniker has been around for decades, originally the superhero name for Carol Danvers, the Khan character took on the name. A Pakistani-American, Khan joined the Marvel comics universe back in 2014 as a result of the Inhumans’ Terrigen Mists being released, triggering her shapeshifing powers. Not only is she capable of stretching her limbs to great lengths and widths, but she can also grow or shrink to incredible sizes. Khan is also inspired by Carol Danvers, who at that point had been “promoted” to the role of Captain Marvel, and decides to take on her old moniker of Ms. Marvel to fight crime and do good.

It was also announced at the event that MS. MARVEL would indeed crossover into the MCU feature films although we don’t know which Phase she will show up in but I.m sure that there will be many theories running around.

Now it is important to remember that there is no timeline yet for these newly announced shows to premiere on the streaming platform. Marvel has a bevy of series debuting from 2020 to 2021 so we may have a long wait before these three make their highly anticipated debuts. Marvel already has Loki, Wandavision, Falcon And Winter Soldier, and Hawkeye tapped to hit first.
