Moon Knight, She-Hulk, and More: All the MCU Announcements at Disney+ Day

Ms. Marvel

Finally, the last bit of big time footage from Marvel came in the form of a first look at Ms. Marvel. Check it out below:

Marvel’s description reads: “Ms. Marvel introduces Kamala Khan—a 16-year-old Pakistani American from Jersey City. An aspiring artist, an avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, she is a huge fan of the Avengers—and one in particular, Captain Marvel. But Kamala has always struggled to find her place in the world—that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Iman Vellani stars as Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel. The series is directed by executive producers Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah, Meera Menon and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, with executive producer Bisha K. Ali serving as head writer. Ms. Marvel premieres on Disney+ in Summer 2022.

What If…? Season 2

As previously announced, the speculative animated series Marvel’s What…If? is set to receive a second season. Can The Watcher get back to merely watching? Good luck with that, pal. Marvel’s description reads: “The second season of the fan-favorite animated series. After enlisting the Guardians of the Multiverse to stop Infinity Ultron, The Watcher returns in Season 2 of What If…? to meet new heroes and explore more strange new worlds in the MCU’s ever-expanding Multiverse. Directed by executive producer Bryan Andrews with executive producer AC Bradley serving as head writer.


This was an unexpected but welcome announcement from Marvel. The character of Maya Lopez a.k.a. Echo will be introduced in Hawkeye and played by Alaqua Cox. Read more about her here.

Spider-Man: Freshman Year

And finally, the “Home” naming convention for MCU Spider-Man projects is over. Per Marvel: Spider-Man: Freshman Year is “an animated series that follows Peter Parker on his way to becoming Spider-Man in the MCU, with a journey unlike we’ve ever seen and a style that celebrates the character’s early comic book roots. Executive producer Jeff Trammel serves as head writer.” Maybe Peter can finally be the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man he’s always wanted to be.

I Am Groot

Other franchises on Disney+ have rolled out adorable shorts aimed at younger audiences like Toy Story with Forky Asks a Question. Now the MCU is getting in on the action with lovable tree Groot. I Am Groot is “a series of original shorts exploring Baby Groot’s glory days growing up, and getting into trouble, among the stars. Directed by executive producer Kirsten Lepore.”
