Every Marvel Project Announced During Disney's Investor Day

Last night was a nerdy news filled extravaganza! While all of our attention here at Great White & Co was directed to The Game Awards, Disney decided to throw every announcement they could possible at us last night during their Investor Day. The announcements were not exclusive to Marvel as there were some new Star Wars TV shows and movies announced along with shows for other existing Disney properties, like Percy Jackson and the Olympians, but a majority of the announcements that are coming soon belong to the comic book and cinematic universe juggernauts, Marvel. First, let's take a look at the projects that either just got announced or received a new trailer.

WandaVision | The first Marvel Studio show that will be released on Disney+ received a second trailer ahead of its January 15 release date.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier | This show, which follows the two heroes after the events of Endgame, received its first full-length trailer as well as an announcement of a March 2021 release.

Loki | A first look at the show and a May 2021 release date was announced.

Hawkeye Series | Announced to be released in late fall 2021 exclusively on Disney +. The show recently went into production with Jeremy Renner, as Hawkeye, and Hailee Steinfeld, as Kate Bishop, having been spotted in costume on set.

What If? | A trailer for the animated series exploring the various hypothetical situations and how they would change the universe.

Fantastic Four | Announced and under the direction of Jon Watts, the director of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home.

Ms. Marvel | Iman Vellani stars as Kamala Khan in a new series set to release in late 2021. A short sizzle was provided as an introduction to the character and to show the significance of the first Pakistani-American hero.

Several Animated Series | Kevin Fiege announced three new shows that will be coming to Disney's streaming service: IronHeart, Armor Wars, and Secret Invasion. IronHeart follows Riri Williams who creates the most advanced suit of armor since Iron Man himself. Armor Wars stars Don Cheadle in a story where Tony Stark's tech falls into the wrong hands. Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelson will star in the Secret Invasion series. An animated series of shorts following the iconic little star of Guardians of the Galaxy, called I Am Groot, is also coming soon to Disney+.

Now it's time for the updates. Not everything discussed at the event was a new first look but an update on a previously announced movie or series. These are the smaller updates for projects we can expect to see soon. In addition to what's below, Captain Marvel 2 and Blade are, of course, still in the works. Black Widow will now release May 8, 2021, Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings will release July 9, 2021, and Eternals will now release November 5, 2021.

Thor: Love and Thunder | The sequel to the hilarious Thor: Ragnarok, which sees most of the core team returning to reprise their roles, has confirmed that Christian Bale has been cast as Gorr the God Butcher. The film will release on May 26, 2022.

Black Panther II | After the tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman, many fans were wondering how Marvel will handle the sequel. Kevin Fiege has confirmed that the film will not recast Black Panther and instead have Letitia Wright taking on a bigger role. The film is set to start production summer of 2021 with a release on July 8, 2022.

Several Animated Series | Fiege also provided a few casting updates for She-Hulk and Moon Knight. The She-Hulk Disney+ series starring Tatiana Maslany will also have Mark Ruffalo return as Hulk and Tim Roth reprising his role as Abomination from The Incredible Hulk film. Moon Knight will be directed by Egyptian screenwriter Mohamed Diab.

There it is, all the exciting new projects in development at Marvel and Disney. Despite the fact that in 2020 there was not a single new MCU-related film/show released, starting in 2021 things will go back into full swing with the most expansive universe yet, spanning across movies, TV shows, and, one can hope, video games.
