Today, Disney revealed some of the new exclusive originals coming to Disney+ in the United Kingdom in 2024, and it confirmed some of the upcoming Marvel Studios titles coming to the streaming service next year.
Up first, the Marvel Studios’ “Echo” series will arrive on 10th January 2024, with all episodes available at once. This will be the first time Marvel Studios has released an entire series at once, instead of the usual weekly release schedule. And the show will also be released on Hulu in the United States.
The series tells the origin story of Maya Lopez, whose ruthless behaviour in New York City catches up with her in her hometown. She must face her past, reconnect with her Native American roots, and embrace the meaning of family and community if she ever hopes to move forward.
Later in 2024, Marvel fans can also look forward to the highly anticipated “Agatha: Darkhold Diaries” series, which is a spin-off of the “WandaVision” Disney+ series and will see Kathryn Hahn reprising her fan-favourite role of Westview’s resident Darkhold reader, Agatha.
It’s also been confirmed that “X-Men ’97” also arrives on the platform in 2024 and is a revival of the classic 1990s animated series. This series will explore new stories in the iconic 90s timeline of the original series.
It’s also been confirmed that a second season of “Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur” and new episodes of “Spidey And His Amazing Friends” is also coming to Disney+ in 2024.
No official release date for “X-Men ’97” and “Agatha: Darkhold Diaries” has been confirmed, but that’s likely to be made nearer the actual release.
We should also expect to see “The Marvels” added onto Disney+ at some point in 2024, along with “Deadpool 3”, following its theatrical release.
At last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel revealed its lineup for 2023/2024, but due to multiple reasons, including this summer’s strikes, quality control, stretched creatives, budget cuts and superhero fatigue, several other titles have been delayed further, including “Ironheart”, “Spider-Man: Freshman Year”, “Marvel Zombies” and “Daredevil: Born Again”.
So going into 2024, we’re still going to be getting some Marvel content on Disney+, but it’s going to be drastically reduced from the initial plan, which might be a good thing, to allow Marvel to get back on track creatively and also give audiences a break between projects.
We may still see some other projects coming from Marvel in 2024, such as new episodes of “Legends” and “Assembled”, but I think a lighter year is exactly what we all need.
