Disney Plus shows - Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight and She-Hulk - are all MCU Phase 4
Marvel head Kevin Feige also said that there was a possibility of these storylines taking the form of movies
The upcoming Disney+ shows for She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Moon Knight have all been officially announced as being part of Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel wrapped up a decade's worth of storytelling earlier this year, concluding a huge 22-film saga with Avengers: Endgame. Garnering positive reviews, the film recently became the highest-grossing film of all time. The MCU shows no signs of stopping, however - with Phase 4 already unveiled and Phase 5 teased at D23.
Marvel head Kevin Feige also said that there was a possibility of these storylines taking the form of movies.
"Bruce Banner is no longer the only Hulk in the MCU. Jennifer Walters is a Hulk, she's a lawyer, and she's going to star in a show unlike anything we've done before," said Feige about the She-Hulk series.
She-Hulk aka Jennifer Walters is the cousin of original Hulk Bruce Banner. After Walters received a blood transfusion from Banner, she accidentally took in some of his gamma poisoning and became an intelligent iteration of the Hulk.
Created by Stan Lee, She-Hulk first appeared in the February 1980 issue Savage She-Hulk #1. She is also a member of the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, Defenders, and S.H.I.E.L.D. The storyline from her life that the show will explore is not known yet.
Feige is also excited about the action adventure series on Moon Knight, another Marvel character.
"At the centre is Marc Spector, a mercenary left for dead by his companions in the Egyptian desert. He may or may not be infused with powers from the Moon God Khonshu or he might just be crazy. It is something very unique and exciting for us," Feige said, teasing the plot of the show.
Moon Knight is the story of Spector, a former CIA agent, who was almost killed by a terrorist named Bushman. His life is saved by the Moon God Khonshu. He goes on to kill Bushman and becomes Moon Knight. He first appeared in the August 1975 issue Werewolf by Night #32.
Marvel will also introduce its first Muslim superhero with Ms Marvel. The series will revolve on the life of a teenager named Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American from New Jersey, who has the ability to stretch and change shape. The project will be helmed by Bisha K. Ali.
These three series join Marvel's existing Disney+ titles like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, and Hawkeye.
