Kevin Feige teases Disney+ debut date for Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk
Last August, it was officially announced that Marvel Studios is currently developing three new MCU series for Disney+ which will center on three iconic superheroes Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk. Because of this news, MCU fans got excited for the three heroes to finally make their live-action debut and were curious on how long will it take for the shows to premiere.
And now, it looks like the trio’s long-awaited on-screen debuts might be sooner than expected with Marvel’s chief creative officer Kevin Feige revealing the potential premiere date for the forthcoming MCU shows. During the recent Marvel Studios panel at the 2019 CCXP, Feige has confirmed that Disney+’s Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk will all be ready to make their respective debuts “towards the end of next year,” according to Fandom.
She-Hulk debuted in Marvel Comics’ “Savage She-Hulk” #1 in 1980, created by writer Stan Lee and artist John Buscema. Her alter ego is Jennifer Walters, the cousin of Bruce Banner/Hulk, who after being shot is provided a blood transfusion from Bruce that turns her into a similar green monster. She later became a member of the Avengers and briefly replaced Ben Grimm in The Fantastic Four.
She-Hulk is one of a slew of properties Marvel Studios is currently developing for the forthcoming streaming service Disney+, including The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, What If…?, WandaVision, Hawkeye, Moon Knight and Ms. Marvel. The Winter Soldier series is set to be the first to premiere amongst the group, with the six-episode first season slated for an August 2020 debut.
Created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin in 1975 for “Werewolf by Night” #32, Moon Knight is the alter ego of Marc Spector is a Jewish-American rabbi’s son who grew up to become a heavyweight boxer and then a U.S. Marine. Left for dead on a mission in Egypt, he’s taken to a temple devoted to the god Khonshu, and agrees to become the god’s avatar on Earth.
British writer Bisha K. Ali (Four Weddings and Funeral) will reportedly write and act as showrunner for the Ms. Marvel series. It was also confirmed that the fans should also expect to see the three Marvel characters in MCU films following their series debuts.
Though the Ms. Marvel moniker has been around for decades, originally the superhero name for Carol Danvers, the Khan character took on the name. A Pakistani-American, Khan joined the Marvel comics universe back in 2014 as a result of the Inhumans’ Terrigen Mists being released, triggering her shapeshifing powers. Not only is she capable of stretching her limbs to great lengths and widths, but she can also grow or shrink to incredible sizes. Khan is also inspired by Carol Danvers, who at that point had been “promoted” to the role of Captain Marvel, and decides to take on her old moniker of Ms. Marvel to fight crime and do good.
