Marvel fans are in for some new content with the introduction of three new super heroes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe through the streaming platform Disney Plus. With each one receiving their own show throughout the year, this will allow for new storylines that will connect to upcoming and existing projects.

The Moon Knight series will follow the mercenary Marc Spector who suffers from dissociative identity disorder. In this series Spector will become a host for an Egyptian god from which he will be able to channel his powers where he must also deal with his distinct identities. Spector will be played by actor Oscar Isaac who has recently been seen in the new Star Wars trilogy and last year’s popular film, Dune. The show is set to release its first of six episodes on March 30.

The She-Hulk series follows the cousin of Avenger and scientist Bruce Banner, Jennifer Walters. Similar to her cousin, Walters can also become a female counterpart to the Hulk. Opposed to her cousin, Walters works as a lawyer for cases involving superhumans. This show is expected to contain a large number of cameos of new and existing characters. Walters will be played by actress Tatiana Maslany, best known for her leading role in the Canadian television series Orphan Black, and the 10-episode series is set to release around summer 2022.

The Ms Marvel series follows 16-year-old Muslim Pakistani-American Kamala Khan, played by actress Iman Vellani, who is a huge fan of superheroes, mainly Captain Marvel. Struggling to fit in with her peers, upon gaining her own powers, this will allow her to follow in the footsteps of her idols. This series is planned to lead up to the new movie, The Marvels, the sequel to 2019 film Captain Marvel. Khan will be played by new actress Imani Vellani as this will be her first acting role and the show will premiere its six episodes around summer 2022.

Though having been affected by the pandemic, mainly through the delay of their initial release dates, their premieres are approaching quickly on Disney Plus. This will allow Marvel fans to be able to meet these new heroes through their own respective shows.
