Here Are All The Newly Announced Marvel Movies And Disney+ Shows That Will Be Coming Your Way

After unloading a massive amount of new Star Wars shows and movies during its Investor Day event, Disney turned things over to Marvel, which proceeded to drop an even bigger slew of announcements about its upcoming slate. Like Star Wars, Marvel is naturally going big on Disney+ series as the streaming platform continues to be a high priority for the House of Mouse. But unlike Star Wars, Marvel Studios still had a very strong showing for its theatrical releases and plenty of surprises to go around.

Here’s every announcement you might have missed during the tidal wave of news:

DISNEY+ SERIES NEWS
