Ms Marvel, She Hulk and Moon Knight all coming to Disney+
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is adding more superheroes to its roster, with the announcement of three more TV shows on Disney+. Following the announcements of Loki, WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and animated What if? for Phase 4 and Hawkeye to follow, Disney has confirmed that we're also getting live action series focusing on Ms Marvel, She Hulk and Moon Knight.
British writer Bisha K. Ali is expected to write and serve as showrunner of the Ms Marvel TV series, which will focus on 16-year old Kamala Khan, a Muslim New Jersey resident who idolizes Carol Danvers and discovers she has Inhuman abilities (see Agents of SHIELD and err... Inhumans). The comic Ms Marvel was created by Sana Amanat G. Willow Wilson, and Adrian Alphona in 2013 and received a Hugo Award in 2015, as well as being nominated for several Eisners. If the MCU is looking for their next teenage hero to continue the franchise following the departure of Spiderman back to Sony, they could do no wrong then Ms Marvel.
Next up is She Hulk. Jennifer Walters is the cousin of Bruce Banner, who gains her powers after receiving a blood transfusion from Bruce. Jennifer can control her abilities, flitting between heroic She Hulk and lawyer by day. No further details have been released about this Disney+ series yet.
Finally there is Moon Knight, Marvel's answer to Batman with a twist. Marc Spector is a wealthy former mercenary and adventurer who becomes the avatar of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu after some archaeological misadventure. The vigilante suffers with Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder), making for potentially the darkest MCU show yet (outside of Netflix's now-cancelled TV content).
The fact that these shows are all closely linked with the films, offers a hint of just how expansive Phase 4 and beyond is likely to be...
