Disney+ has come a long way since it launched in 2019, thanks in large part to its exclusive movies and series, a large number of which are now Marvel-related.
Kevin Feige recently visited San Diego Comic-Con to lay out Marvel Studios’ plans for the next few years, which included an overwhelming number of both movie and TV series announcements.
Here are all the new Marvel Disney+ series coming to our screens in 2022 and beyond.

Everyone became an instant fan of Baby Groot i Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2and now the little tree’s adventure continues I’m Groot. The series of five animated shorts will fill in some of the gaps in Groot’s young life as he grows up (again) with the Guardians team.
Release date: 10 August 2022
You’ve heard of the Hulk, but have you heard of She-Hulk? You’ll find both in the next Disney+ series as Mark Ruffalo returns as Bruce Banner and the Queen of Transformations, aka Tatiana Maslany (I mean, have you seen her in Orphan black?), takes on the role of Jennifer Walters.
She-Hulk: Lawyer will also apparently feature another famous lawyer – Matt Murdock, who was seen in his Daredevil suit in the latest trailer.
Release date: 17 August 2022
The Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 won’t come out until 2023, but before then we’ll see the spacefaring crew in their own Disney+ holiday special.
Bridging the gap between Phase 4 and the upcoming third film, The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special will see all the major players return, including director James Gunn.
Release date: December 2022
Marvel Phase 5 on Disney+
Secret Invasion adapts one of Marvel’s most infamous comic book stories. With the return of the shape-shifting Skrulls, it will be harder than ever to tell who is who.
The series stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as Skrull Talos – characters who first met in Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel. The series of crossover comics showcases a faction of shape-shifting Skrulls that have been infiltrating Earth for years.
I caught a glimpse of the footage shown to Secret Invasion at Comic-Con, and let me tell you, this has shot to the top of my most anticipated projects list.
Release date: Autumn 2023
IN Hawkeye, we were introduced to a new face – Alaqua Cox’s Maya Lopez – who is now getting her own series with Echo.
In her MCU debut, we learned that Maya was partially raised by the infamous villain Kingpin, and Vincent D’Onofrio and maybe even Charlie Cox are expected to appear in the new series. Here is the synopsis for the series:
The origin story of Echo visits Maya Lopez, whose reckless behavior in New York City catches up with her in her hometown. She must face her past, reconnect with her Native American roots, and embrace the importance of family and community if she ever hopes to move forward.
Release date: Winter 2023
Loki – Season 2
Loki The debut season set the stage for many big things to come in the MCU as Tom Hiddleston’s character unraveled the mysteries of the Time Variance Authority and traveled to the Citadel at the End of Time, where he and his variant Sylvie caused a ripple effect that sets up Marvel’s next big bad: Kang the Conquer.
We don’t know much about what’s in store for season 2 of Lokibut the mischievous God surely has his work cut out for him.
Release date: Winter 2023
Iron Man may be gone, but his legacy lives on in the MCU. We don’t know much about Ironheart yet, but it looks like it will follow a similar story to the comics.
All Marvel can tell us is that Riri Williams (played by Dominique Throne) is a brilliant inventor who creates the most advanced armor since Iron Man. We will see the character first in the upcoming sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Foreverso take notes.
Release date: Spring 2023
Agatha: Coven of Chaos
Agatha Harkness was without a doubt the breakout star from WandaVision in 2021. Clearly, everyone at Marvel thought the same, which is why we’ll see Kathryn Hahn headline her own Disney+ series as the witch.
Agatha: Coven of Chaos (formerly known as House of Harkness) will begin filming later in 2022.
Release date: Summer 2023/2024
Daredevil: Born Again
For years, fans have wondered if the Marvel franchise that was once on Netflix would become canon in the MCU. When Charlie Cox appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home as Matt Murdock, those dreams seemed to come true.
Now Cox has his work cut out for him with appearances not only in Spider man but also (allegedly) She-Hulk and Echo also.
Not to mention, the character is getting her very own solo series on Disney+ titled Daredevil: Born Again. The new show will consist of a total of 18 episodes and will star both Cox and Kingpin actor Vincent D’Onofrio.
Release date: Autumn 2024
The Marvel animated series on Disney+
What if…? Season 2
The MCU’s first attempt at animated multiversal madness returns for a second season. What if..? Season 2 will pick up the story from the first season with several actors from the MCU reprising their roles.
After enlisting the Guardians of the Multiverse to stop Infinity Ultron, The Watcher returns in Season 2 of What if…? to meet new heroes and explore more strange new worlds in the MCU’s ever-expanding Multiverse.
I saw an episode from the new season at Comic-Con and can tell you that a lot of exciting characters show up in this one (including the queen: Scarlet Witch).
Release date: Early in 2023
If you miss the good old days X men animated series, then Disney+ has a treat for you.
Announced on Disney+ Day X-MEN ’97 is a new animated series that explores stories set in the same iconic ’90s timeline as the original. The classic lineup will be back with the likes of Beast, Wolverine, Jean Gray and Storm confirmed.
Release date: 2023
Spider-Man: Freshman Year
Spider-Man’s impact on the MCU isn’t waning, and we’ll next see the character in his own animated series, Spider-Man: Freshman Year.
The animation follows Peter Parker in his high school years on his journey to become Spider-Man (before he appeared in Civil War).
The panel at Comic-Con revealed that many Marvel characters will be joining him on his quest, including Runaways’ Nico Minoru and Harry Osborne. He will also come across many iconic villains such as Norma Osborne, Doc Ock, Scorpion and Rhino. Not to mention Daredevil and Doctor Strange will appear too!
The fun doesn’t stop there Spider-Man: Second Year also in development.
Release date: 2024
If you liked the zombies in Marvel’s What if…? then you will tune in Marvel zombies.
The animated series from Marvel Studios recreates the Marvel Universe as a new generation of heroes fight against an ever-spreading zombie scourge.
Some of the zombies we know we’ll be seeing were announced at SDCC and include the Abomination, Scarlet Witch, and Captain Marvel. Ugh, I don’t like anyone taking those odds. Luckily, a team of heroes including Kamala Khan, Kate Bishop and Yelena Belova are up to the task.
Release date: TBA
