Ms. Marvel Is Coming to Disney+!

Sunday, 25 Aug, 2019

Scarlet Witch is no longer the only female Marvel superhero with her own standalone series on Disney Plus.

In comics, Jen Walters is Bruce Banner's cousin, and she becomes a She-Hulk after she gets a blood transfusion from Bruce.

By day, she operates as a successful lawyer, taking on cases in superheroic law - occasionally dabbling in superpowered fisticuffs on the side as She-Hulk. Wyatt Russell is also joining the series as John Walker, better known as U.S. Agent in the comics. Not only is she a powerful superhero, She-Hulk is an attorney - and the brief teaser of the announcement included a look at Lady Justice. It is interesting to note that when the character's original series ended, she became a part of Avengers and the Fantastic Four. The footage began talking of the Hawkeye show, teasing a "side of Clint Barton you haven't seen before".

Last but not least on Marvel's new slate is Moon Knight. A former boxer and US Marine, Marc Spector left the military to become an global mercenary.

The story follows a rabbi's son and retired agent who is nearly killed, but is saved by an Egyptian deity known as Moon God Khonshu. Feige described Moon Knight as "a new action-adventure series that is something very unique and exciting for us".

Moon Knight centers on Mark Spector, a mercenary left for dead in Egyptian desert. We have to wonder if he'll be devoting his life to Khonshu in the near future...

Moon Knight has been the subject of rumours before, but is now confirmed as in development for on the streaming service. He first appeared in the August 1975 issue Werewolf by Night #32.

There's a lot more to the upcoming roster of Marvel projects in the works for Disney+, and this one is definitely coming from the more obscure side of Marvel Comics.

Presumably, the series will focus on the latest iteration of Ms. Marvel, that of Pakistani American and Muslim Kamala Khan, who takes a form of Captain Marvel's name as an homage to her idol. Though the date referred to the film's U.S. release, it's reasonable to think that Australia might receive it at the same time, give or take a day or two.
