news culture Disney+: 7 Marvel series in 2023 for superhero and MCU fans
2022 has been a pretty complicated year for Marvel because of some projects that are far from unanimous. But for 2023, many highly anticipated series will finally emerge. To find your way among all these shows, we offer you a small selection of MCU content planned on Disney+ in 2023.
- Secret Invasion
- What If…? Season 2
- Loki Season 2
- X-Men ’97
- Agatha Coven of Chaos
- iron heart
Long teased, that’s it, the Secret Invasion series with Nick Fury played by Samuel L. Jackson finally arrives in 2023. As we could observe in the post-generic scene of Spider-Man: Far From Home, the former director of SHIELD has teamed up with a Skrull, an alien capable of changing its appearance on the fly and that we could see in Captain Marvel, to counter the invasion of these extraterrestrials on Earth who infiltrate among humans. We can therefore expect a spy show that Kevin Feige, boss of Marvel Studios, had presented as a series that acts as a crossover. According to Samuel L. Jackson, the show will focus on what happened during the Blip, more commonly known as the Snap, that is to say the moment when half of the population of the universe disappeared following a snap of Thanos’ fingers in possession of all the Infinity Gems. For Cobie Smulders, the interpreter of Maria Hill, it will be a series which is very down to earth and which deals a lot with confidence and human problems.

What If…? Season 2
The MCU’s first animated project, What If…? is a series in which we explore the possibilities of the multiverse by answering questions that fans may have. What would happen if Peggy Carter had received the super-soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers, if Ultron had won, etc. The show answers these questions, even offering a confrontation at the top of the multiverse. After a successful first season, it is therefore without too many surprises that What If…? returns for a second part. This time, we risk finding characters already seen before like Captain Carter who should make his return by facing the Hydra Stomper, namely Steve Rogers in super-powered armor. In any case, we can’t wait to discover the horizons explored by this new part, especially since the animation of the original project was really high quality.

Loki Season 2
Among the most unanimously acclaimed series in the MCU, Loki occupies a prominent place with Wandavision. After a cliffhanger at the end of the first season that made you want to know more, the God of Mischief is back to answer questions from fans. Given what happened, there are many possibilities for this second part. But the most interesting point is that we should learn more about Kang, finally presented as the big bad of phase 5 and 6 of the MCU. This second season must therefore play a central role since it must connect the entire multiverse of the MCU. For such an ambitious project, we know very little about it at the moment, but we can’t wait to discover Loki’s next adventures.

We stop you right away: no, X-Men ’97 is not the project that officially confirms the arrival of the X-Men in the MCU. In reality, the show is not linked to the MCU, but we are telling you about it all the same since it is one of Marvel’s big releases on Disney+ in 2023. Behind this name, there is actually a sequel to the 90s X-Men animated series that has become cult over time. The good news is that we should find a large part of the thinking heads who had worked on the cartoon at the time. What guarantee a certain continuity between the two series. In any case, it’s an additional project for the animation teams at Marvel Studios who have been increasingly in demand lately, even if we still don’t know if the Spider-Man: Freshman Year show will ever happen. or not.

Agatha Coven of Chaos
Introduced for the first time in Wandavision, the witch Agatha will finally be entitled to her own series with Coven of Chaos. In the title role, we will once again find Kathryn Hahn who had delivered a superb interpretation that was both funny and terrifying. Moreover, this is precisely what we see in the tone of the show. From what little we know of the plot, the series was presented as a dark humor spin-off in which we will see Agatha Harkness, of course, but also faces already seen in Wandavision. Again, we ultimately know very little about this project, but we should learn more as the year progresses.

Of all the Marvel projects slated for Disney+ in 2023, Echo is perhaps the most surprising. In reality, it is a series devoted to an antagonist of the Hawkeye show broadcast in 2021, a certain Maya Lopez whose nickname is precisely Echo who is at the head of the Mafia of tracksuits and who is able to reproduce n’ any movement of his opponent. In this project, we will see the young deaf woman return to her native life and reconnect with her past and her Native American origins. In the casting, we find in particular Vincent D’Onofrio and Charlie Cox, respectively the actors of Caïd and Daredevil that we had seen in Hawkeye and She-Hulk. An astonishing project therefore because it is not devoted to a very well-known character in the Marvel universe, or even almost unknown. Despite everything, it remains a good opportunity to explore the native American culture that we had never seen before in the MCU.
- Broadcasting date : End of 2023
We end this list of Marvel projects to land on Disney + in 2023 with Ironheart, the series which will focus on the character of Riri Williams who is the spiritual heiress of Tony Stark. First introduced in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, this science genius managed to develop armor as technologically advanced as Iron Man’s in his time. As in the last film of the Black Panther, it is once again Dominique Thorne who will take over the role of the character. If we don’t know much about the plot of the series, we only know that the show will take place in the continuity of Wakanda Forever and that we will see the repercussions of the feature film on the life of Riri Williams. One of the other issues of the show is the conflict between the technology of the young woman and the magic of The Hood, aka Parker Robbins, a young man who has made a pact with a demon, which allows him to borrow his cape and boots to gain access to superpowers like flying or becoming invisible.
