Marvel Studios Releases New Details on Hawkeye, Shang-Chi, Captain Marvel 2, Armor Wars, Ironheart, Secret Invasion… and Fantastic Four!

During the Disney investor presentation, numerous announcements were made as to what to expect from Marvel Studios over the next years. Numerous first looks were released and updates to movies, television shows, and a whole lot of reveals.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has wrapped its production. The film is in theaters July 9, 2021.

Brie Larson will return as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel in Captain Marvel 2. Nia DaCosta will direct the film and Larson will be joined by Iman Vellani, the new Ms. Marvel, and Teyonah Parris who will play Monica Rambeau. Parris will debut as the character in WandaVision.

Captain Marvel 2 will fly into theaters November 11, 2022.

Hawkeye is currently filming. Jeremy Renner returns as the character and will be joined by Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop.

Additional cast include Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, and newcomer Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez, with episodes directed by Rhys Thomas and directing duo Bert and Bertie.

Tatiana Maslany is now confirmed as Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk… and Tim Roth is joining her!? Roth returns as the Abomination. Mark Ruffalo will also appear on the Disney+ series. It will be directed by Kat Coiro and Anu Valia.

Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany looks to be the lead choice for Marvel’s She-Hulk series that will air on Disney+. Kat Coiro will also direct several episodes of the series including the pilot. Jessica Gao will lead the writers room.

She-Hulk is Jennifer Walters, an attorney and cousin to Bruce Banner who gains her cousin’s power after a blood transfusion. But, unlike her cousin, she’s able to keep her intelligence and personality easier.

With a career that goes back decades, Maslany had a star-making turn in the cult series Orphan Black in 2013 which ran until 2017. Maslany was nominated for three Emmys and a Golden Globe during the show’s run, winning the Emmy for best actress in a drama series in 2016. She was recently seen and praised for her role as Sister Alice McKeegan in Perry Mason.

This won’t be the first comic based character she has stepped into the role for. The actress voiced the character Redcoat for the Captain Canuck animated series that ran from 2013 to 2014.

She-Hulk is one of numerous Marvel series coming to Disney+. Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, and Moon Knight are all in the works or coming soon.
