Marvel Characters She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight Coming To Disney+
At the San Diego ComicCon, Marvel announced a number of new shows on the soon-t0-be launched Disney+ streaming network, (including live-action series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier with Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan set to premiere in fall 2020, a Loki series featuring Tom Hiddleston in spring 2021, WandaVision with Elizabeth Olsen in her role of Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany as The Vision in spring 2021 a Hawkeye series in fall 2021, starring Jeremy Renner and the animated series Marvel’s What If….
But earlier today (August 23) at Disney’s D23 event, they announced three more, albeit with scant details. She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight will also get their own series on the streaming platform as well. It’s unknown if the shows have cast their actors yet. They shared the announcements on Instagram.
In the comics, She-Hulk (alias Jennifer Walters) is the cousin of Bruce Banner, whose superhuman powers transferred to her when she received a transfusion of Banner’s blood. She went on to become a member of both the Avengers and the Fantastic Four. There’s no word if Mark Ruffalo, who played Banner and Hulk in the Avengers and Thor films will have any involvement in the show. She’s also one of the last characters that Stan Lee created for Marvel.
The original Ms. Marvel was Carol Danvers, who later became Captain Marvel, and the name was most recently passed on to Kamala Khan, a teen protege of Danvers who is Marvel’s first Muslim character to headline her own comic book.
The character Moon Knight, or Marc Spector, is a former mercenary and CIA agent who has multiple personalities and is imbued with powers from an Egyptian god. He’s sort of a combination of DC’s Batman and the golden age Hawkman.
Another Marvel D23 reveal was the announcement that Sharon Carter will appear in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. She’ll once again be played by Emily VanCamp, who played the role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Captain America: Civil War.
More surprising was the announcement that Kat Dennings will reprise her role as Darcy Lewis (according to i09) — which she played in the first two Thor films. She’ll play the role in Wandavision , according to SyFy, although there’s no word if she’ll appear in the next Thor film. Likewise, Randall Park will return to his role as FBI agent Jimmy Woo, which he played in Ant-Man And The Wasp. He’ll also appear in Wandavision. The next Ant-Man film has yet to be announced.
Disney Plus, a $7-a-month service set to launch Nov. 12.
