Disney's Bob Iger Announces A Big Change To Marvel – Here's What It Means

l intro 1707421037

Marvel Studios has already made significant shifts in recent years, thanks in part to dwindling financial receipts and disappointing fan reception. In 2024, “Deadpool 3” will be the only new MCU theatrical release. The highly-anticipated sequel incorporates the roster of X-Men characters into the franchise, marking a major creative shift in how the studio approaches its storytelling.

Disney is also changing its approach to Marvel’s TV slate. This year, audiences can look forward to the “WandaVision” spin-off “Agatha: Darkhold Diaries” on Disney+. MCU fans can also expect three animated projects in the form of “Eyes of Wakanda,” “Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man,” and “Marvel Zombies.” However, it remains to be seen if they’ll debut in 2024. 

Marvel Studios has other Disney+ projects in various stages of development. Perhaps the most prominent is the Charlie Cox-led “Daredevil: Born Again,” which endured a creative overhaul after studio executives weren’t impressed with footage shot before 2023’s Writers Guild of America strike. Marvel is attempting to focus on titles that will generate excitement and lead to more subscribers; Disney+ lost 1.3 million subscribers in its final 2023 quarter.
