With the announcement of Marvel’s Phase 4 hitting only last month, it would have been safe to say there probably was not much else to say in regards to the next wave of Marvel movies. However, at Disney’s D23 Expo in California this weekend, even more shows in the MCU have been unveiled and are possibly the heaviest hitters of the bunch.

"Ms. Marvel"

Kamala Khan AKA Ms. Marvel might share her name, but she is no copy of Carol Danvers’ Captain Marvel. Living in Jersey City, Kamala got her powers as an Inhuman, a race of superpowered beings that had an onscreen portrayal in another TV series. Unlike Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel has the ability of a polymorph, which means she can shape-shift her body into nearly anything she wants. She can stretch her limbs like Mr. Fantastic of the Fantastic 4 and has a healing factor similar to Wolverine. Her idol is Captain Marvel, but she is a mega-fan of all the heroes in general. With Spider-Man most likely, unfortunately, leaving the MCU, Kamala Khan could be the next teenage hero the universe needs to ground the older heroes with some youthful spirit. Kamala is also notable for being the first Pakistani-American Muslim superhero under Marvel, and will also be the first to be featured in the MCU.

"Moon Knight"

Marc Spector AKA Moon Knight is one of Marvel’s most effective street-level heroes, although anti-hero might be a better description in Moon Knight’s case. In addition to powers given to him by the Egyptian moon god Kohnshu, Marc also employs many gadgets in his fight against crime in both New York City and the West Coast as well as being a master martial artist and detective. His moon god powers are not without their weaknesses, however. Marc suffers from a split-personality where he can often switch between different moods and personas to deal with having so much power flowing through him. This show will likely be one of the darker sides of the MCU, with Marc coping with so much lower level but still dangerous threats rather than huge Avengers-level ones.

"She-Hulk"

Jennifer Walters was a law student studying to become a lawyer. Unfortunately, she was caught in an accident and was injured. With no time to act, her cousin Bruce Banner gave her his blood to save her life. In doing so, infecting Jennifer with the same gamma radiation that causes Bruce to transform into the Incredible Hulk. While she was out of control at first, Jennifer’s Hulk form eventually became less rabid and allowed her to keep her intelligence. Growing up, Jennifer always felt nervous and afraid, but she liked the confidence she got when transformed. Over the years, she would team up with several groups of heroes like the Avengers and Fantastic 4. Even though she could keep her powers under control most of the time, there were several accidents caused by Jennifer losing control. A series that deals with this struggle could be an excellent opportunity for some emotionally filled drama that deals with exactly what it means to have great power and greater responsibility.
