Three More Marvel Heroes Are Getting Live-Action TV Shows

After the huge success of Avengers: Endgame, now the highest-grossing film of all time, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is expected to just keep growing, with the exciting Phase 4 slate already revealed at the San Diego Comic-Con last month.

As it turns out, there are three more Marvel heroes to have their own TV series in the upcoming streaming service Disney+. During Disney's D23 Expo, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed three more titles joining the MCU and these are She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Moon Knight.

In the comics, Ms. Marvel was the first superhero name taken by Carol Danvers before she assumed the title of Captain Marvel in 2012. There were other heroines who took up the mantle of Ms. Marvel, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will focus on the teenager Kamela Khan who has the powers to stretch herself and change shape. Kamela is the first Muslim Marvel character to lead her own comics title and now she's getting her own show, to be run and written by British writer Bisha K. Ali. It is set for release on November 12.

As for She-Hulk, it tells the story of Jennifer Walters who had a blood transfusion with her cousin, Bruce Banner. After receiving some of the gamma poison in Bruce's blood, Jennifer becomes the intelligent and controlled female version of the Hulk (more like the Hulk that we see in Endgame). Moon Knight on the other hand revolves around mercenary Mark Spector, who becomes the avatar of the Egyptian god Khonshu, and fights off criminals while conflicted with his multiple personalities and amoral inclinations.

Details on the casting and release dates for She-Hulk and Moon Knight are yet to be announced, but Feige has already confirmed that all three titles will be integrated to the MCU, adding to the roster of Marvel shows coming to Disney+ like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, Hawkeye, and the animated series What If?...
