Marvel's Disney+ slate for the remainder of this year has seen two upcoming series vanish from 2022.
Two MCU series that were expected to release later this year have now been pushed back into 2023, according to a recent release schedule update.
Marvel Japan has updated their upcoming releases for this year, with two noticeable omissions: Samuel L. Jackson's 'Secret Invasion' series, plus season two of the animated creation 'What If...?'. The new and returning series were expected to arrive on Disney+ later this year, but now we'll have to patiently wait until next year to see them both.
Jackson will be reprising his role as Nick Fury in 'Secret Invansion', which is expected to take place predominantly in space. Last time we saw the character was in 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' (which, it turned out, was actually Talos all along), with the real Fury appearing in a post-credits scene while holidaying in space.
Joining the 'Secret Invasion' six-episode series is quite an astounding cast, making us extra disappointed that we won't get to see the series this year. Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Christopher McDonald and Irish actor Killian Scott have been cast in the series. Cobie Smulders will once again reprise her role as Fury's field partner Maria Hill. The series began filming in London this month.
However, even with 'Secret Invasion' and 'What If...?' being wiped off the 2022 slate, there are still eight MCU releases arriving later this year both on Disney and in theatres. The first MCU series of 2022 will be 'Moon Knight' starring Oscar Isaac, Ethan Hawke and the late Gaspard Ulliel.
Disney+ will also have 'She-Hulk', 'Ms. Marvel', 'I Am Groot', and 'Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special' in December. Cinema releases this year will be 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness', 'Thor: Love and Thunder' and 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever'.
