It’s no secret that it has been a slow year for Disney with a lot of film and TV projects being delayed due to Pandemic reasons and no SDCC Hall H bombshells. With the exception of Disney+ and the Mandalorian it has been a little bit of a downturn for Disney this year but as a major company with Shareholders, Disney just gave their Investor Day update and outlined future plans and…. Oh my, it’s a lot.

You have to remember this is an investor day event not really a press conference or major comic con presentation to build hype so details are little but lets cover what we can..

  • She Hulk will be played Tatiana Maslany (confirmed this time) with Tim Roth from The Hulk returning as Abomination (and a hint of other legal related Marvel characters may appear *cough Daredevil*)
  • Moon Knight was mentioned as still being worked on but no updates yet. We are still holding out for Keanu Reeves being cast as Marc Spector
  • Secret Invasion will be Disney+ series with Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) and Ben Mendelsohn to be a series that will link many of the MCU films going forward
  • Ironheart confirmed as a series following RiRi Williams
  • The Iron Man story Armor Wars is in the works to be adapted with Don Cheadle returning as War Machine/Rhodey

  • Black Panther has been confirmed as not being recast with the loss of Chadwick Bosman but Black Panther 2 will be going ahead in 2022

And that is it. Expect a lot more about these as the world moves back to normal and dates can be set more reliably but that is a LOT with the Star Wars announcements probably taking us to nearly the end of the decade and Marvel being across the next 2 phases with Fantastic Four being mentioned.
