Marvel/Disney+: Moon Knight, She-Hulk, and all the new series announced
The D23 Expo 2019 has as always brought a lot of important announcements and Disney+ has obviously been under the spotlight, given that it is shortly also to its official launch: Disney+ will allow subscribers to stream up to four devices simultaneously on each account will be available seven different user profiles to watch 4K video without additional costs. But let's move on to what we'll see, given that the innovations were many:
We had speculated on what Marvel and Disney had in store for the fans at D23, and Marvel certainly has hit the mark. Fans of Moon Knight will see their favorite character on the Disney+. The new show will officially be the hero in the cinematic universe Marvel, creating a path that could eventually lead the character to the cinema.
Fans have wanted a movie of Moon Knight from Marvel since the Phase 1 began, even though we knew that it would take a while to obtain one since Moon Knight is not exactly a mainstream hero. That said, this is one of the most interesting characters in the great variety of the Marvel universe and we can't wait to see what he will do to the Marvel universe with him in his new television project.
For those of you not familiar with the character, Moon Knight is actually Marc Spector, a former CIA agent who was almost killed by a terrorist named Bushman, but was saved by the god of the moon Khonshu. After defeating Bushman would become the hero that we know wearing the costume is all white that has become his trademark.
Moon Knight has never been afraid to be a little more violent, but it seems that we will have to forget about the dark tones of the Daredevil Netflix.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is becoming a lot bigger with the launch of Disney+, as the president of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige has already revealed a full list of the important characters that are making their way to the new streaming service. And while the Comic-con in San Diego was used to officially announce everything that we knew, the D23 Expo of Disney it was also an opportunity to reveal some of the new projects.
One of these projects includes the launch of a series of She-Hulk, finally bringing Jennifer Walters to the action live as the heir of the character of Mark Ruffalo.
Details are still scarce on the series at the moment, especially because we probably will take a while before the project reaches completion. The first series of Marvel Studios on the Disney+ the rest will not be launched until 2020.
She-Hulk will probably be part of Phase 4 and could connect to the character, Ruffalo, introducing a new heroine that would take the place.
A series dedicated to Ms. Marvel is officially in development for Disney+ and Marvel Studios have unveiled the new logo of the show. The iconic logo in the shape of a lightning bolt is modernized with yellow and orange as primary colors. Also, if you look carefully, you will also notice a reference to Captain Marvel. As reported previously, Bisha K. Ali, and clothe the role of showrunner for the series.
The boss of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, had long ago actually made a reference to Ms. Marvel, and now we understand why.
It is not clear if the Carol Danvers Brie Larson will be involved or not in the project, though Feige has said that the Disney shows+ will be very connected to the film of the MCU.
“To be entirely intertwined with both the MCU current, both with the MCU's past, and the future of the MCU,” said Feige in ComicBook.com. Our young heroine, however, will have appearances in the films, according to Feige.

“The movie sees Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and some of the important moments of the MCU. Jeffrey Wright narrates, as time is of the [river] of endless possibilities.

There have also been updates to the series that is already known:
Loki will have six one-hour episodes each, to compose his first season on the Disney+, with Kate Harron directing.
More news for The Falcon, which will see the return of Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter; Wyatt Russell instead will play the role of the U. S. Agent in the new series.
WandaVision instead will see the return of the characters of Darcy and agent Woo. Then at the D23 Expo, the directors of WandaVision Jac Schaeffer, and Matt Shakman, appeared to talk about their next program of television of Marvel Studios. After that Schaeffer has said to Variety that the show would have been of the same quality of the films of Marvel Studios, Shakman said that we will see the two characters working on a relationship between them.
“They are a pairing so unusual, true? He [the Vision] is not human but is more human than anyone, perhaps,” reflects Shakman. “It always has the best stuff and more wise to say. He sees the world for what it is. Has been through so many traumas. He lost his brother, he is an orphan and all these things.”
“I think we were all quite taken by that union. Is [WandaVision] the exploration of that kind of love bizarre, strange, absolutely right, and it is to see them explore their relationship and help them grow”.

It was said that the project, titled the Muppets Live Another Day, would have been set immediately after the events of The Muppets Take Manhattan 1984, and would be focused on the fact that Kermit melt the band of friends, only to reunite them again when Rowlf disappears.
Disney has restarted the franchise for the last time with the sitcom “mockumentary” broadcast on ABC and more oriented to adults. The series has undergone a change of showrunner mid-season because of unfavourable assessments, and in the end it was cancelled by the network after one season.
