All of the upcoming Marvel TV shows and movies, including Deadpool, Werewolf by Night, Secret Invasion, and more!
It can be tough to keep up with all of the shows and movies Marvel has on Disney+ — particularly when an event like Disney’s D23 Expo serves us a massive infodump of announcements every year. (Or when Ryan Reynolds just decides to tweet something.) We’re working to keep up, too, so we’ve updated our list of upcoming Marvel shows (and movies!) with all of the latest, including one show that we were sure was lost to time.
Here’s what we have to look forward to from Marvel for the rest of 2022 and into 2023.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law
Release date: Streaming now!
Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) was on her way to be a successful lawyer when a serious accident left her needing a blood transfusion from her cousin — the jolly green giant himself, The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) — resulting in her new emerald hue. She-Hulk: Attorney at Law appears to be heavily influenced by Dan Sloot’s run with the character from 2004, when she was asked by a prestigious New York law firm to head up a division for super-powered related lawsuits and crimes.
Jennifer will be defending Tim Roth’s Emil Blonsky — The Abomination from 2008’s The Incredible Hulk — as well as dealing with her own nemesis, the powerful Titania, played by Jameela Jamil. Hopefully this courtroom series will bring back Marvel’s greatest lawyer, Elden Henson’s Foggy Nelson — if you were expecting Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdoch, he is set to appear; he is just not Marvel’s greatest lawyer.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law debuted August 17 and will run until October 13. Also in comic stores everywhere you can find an omnibus of the Dan Sloot run of She-Hulk — if you like the show, check out this legendary run of the book.
Werewolf By Night
Release Date: October 7
Straight from the pages of the 1970’s horror comic revival that gave us such characters as Blade and Moon Knight comes Werewolf by Night. A collection of monsters converge on mysterious Bloodstone manor to face off the likes of ghouls, zombies, Man-Thing, and the mysterious Werewolf by Night. García Bernal plays Jack Russel— a man with a secret— and Laura Donnely plays Elsa Bloodstone — the latest monster hunter in a long line of slayers. This one-shot is going for the 70’s style horror specials like Trilogy of Terror and reports are saying it is quite gory for a Disney+ movie. I also need to bring up that with Elsa Bloodstone and Monica Rambeau of WandaVision, we are are one step closer to the greatest Marvel project ever: Nextwave.
On the comics front, Marvel Comics will have Crypt of Shadows, a one shot featuring Ella Bloodstone, Moon Knight, Werewolf by Night, X-23, and Blade’s daughter will be releasing October 19th. If you like the 70’s grindhouse style that this special, I also recommend X-Terminators — a limited series by Leah Williams, out now — that is disco queen Dazzler, mallrat Jubilee, foul-mouthed slacker Boom-Boom, and stoic X-23 vs a legion of vampires in an explosive grindhouse slashfest.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special
Release date: December 2022
Not much is known yet of the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special beyond a few things. James Gunn will be returning to television in this show, after his incredible run on Peacemaker. Also, it will feature the Guardians in an adventure that bridges between 2017’s Guardian’s of the Galaxy Vol. 2. and the upcoming Vol. 3 due out in early 2023.
Release date: Early 2023
Samuel L. Jackson returns as Nick Fury in a spy thriller series focusing around the intelligence agencies throughout the MCU and the Skrulls who have been posing as humans since 2019’s Captain Marvel (and seen posing as Nick Fury in 2019’s Spider-Man: Far from Home). This series marks the return of Colbie Smuthers as Maria Hill, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, Martin Freeman as Everett Ross, and Don Cheadle as James Rhodes. (Cheadle is also set to star in the upcoming series Armor Wars, but more details on that will be made later.)
If you want to have a good grounding in the comics before the show starts, 2008’s Secret Invasion series is available on Marvel Unlimited, which I recommend as there are a lot of back issues leading up to it. Following the “secret” theme, Secret Wars 1 and 2 are good as well as 2015’s Jonathan Hickman Secret Wars. Secret Empire should be avoided and forgotten.
Release date: September 6, 2024
It may not be coming to TV right away, but we could not ignore one of the biggest announcements coming out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After years of speculation starting even before the merge of Fox and Disney was complete, Deadpool 3 is in production to be released in the Marvel Phase 6 line up along with Fantastic Four and two more Avengers movies. Nothing is known beyond this one teaser, but the merc with a mouth— except in that one movie we don’t talk about— will be back, being the first mutant to headline a movie. If you find yourself wondering ” really, Deadpool before more important mutants like Wolverine?” fear not. Hugh Jackman will be returning as Wolverine after his departure from the role in 2017’s Logan. We can hope that Dafne Keen returns for the role of Laura.
To hold you over for a year, I highly recommend 2012’s Gerry Duggan ( started with actor and comedian Brian Poshen) run of Deadpool. The run spans several years and is among the best Deadpool stories written.
More shows and movies coming in 2023 and beyond
San Diego Comic-Con gave us a glimpse at what’s coming from Marvel in 2023, as well as some of what’s in store for 2024.
- Kathryn Hahn’s breakout role of Agatha Harkness returns in Agatha Coven of Chaos.
- Tom Hiddleston will return as Loki for season 2 — no word if Alligator Loki will also return.
- What If season 2 is in the works, as well as the animated spin off of Marvel Zombies.
- Spider-Man: Freshman Year will explore Peter Parker’s early days. Not much has been revealed yet other than Charlie Cox is set to appear — actually, Charlie Cox is really getting around, as he is also set to appear in Echo, spinning off from last year’s Hawkeye, as well as a full return to Daredevil in Daredevil Born Again.
The show I am personally most excited for is X-Men ’97, a continuation of the original X-Men: The Animated Series, picking up a year after it ended. This was the series that started my lifelong love of comic books, and to see the original cast come back to pick it up where it left off is exciting. It’ll be interesting to go back nearly 20 years of lore and see how the characters used to be — Emma Frost as a villain again will be a bit of a shock — but this show holds such a special place in the hearts of fans that excitement levels are high even a year before it debuts.
All the shows mentioned in this article will be on Disney+, and any book mentioned can be found at most local comic book shops, as well as the Marvel Unlimited app.
