In the span of just two years, Marvel Studios released seven movies, eight TV series, and two specials comprising Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That’s certainly a lot of projects released in a short time, but they might pump the brakes a bit moving forward. According to a report by THR, Marvels Studios may push back the release of several projects to 2024, including the upcoming Disney+ series, Echo, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, Ironheart, and more.

Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige laid out plans at last year’s Comic-Con to release five new shows on Disney+ in 2023, including Secret Invasion, Loki season 2, Ironheart, Echo, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, and What If…? season 2. THR’s report states that only Secret Invasion and the second season of Loki are “sure bets to debut this year,” with the remaining projects “unlikely” to arrive in 2023. As Echo and Ironheart wrapped shooting last year, that would be quite the delay. Other Marvel shows which are currently in development for Disney+, such as Nova, may also slow down.

Kevin Feige alluded to this change while speaking with Entertainment Weekly earlier this week, saying, “The pace at which we’re putting out the Disney+ shows will change.” Disney CEO Bob Iger also recently commented that they need to be “better at curating” content that’s “extraordinarily expensive.” A company insider told THR that “There is going to be a level of rigor on Marvel and across the entire company. Numbers matter now, and costs are going to be outlined and enforced.” Pumping out endless amounts of content may be fine if you just want to give people something to watch, but that method obviously can’t last with these expensive types of shows. Just take your time, perfect it, and audiences will be grateful they have higher quality shows, even if they may be fewer in number. It remains to be seen if we really will have to wait until 2024 for the majority of these Marvel shows, but I suppose we’ll find out before too long.

The latest MCU project, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, will hit theaters tomorrow. You can check out a review of the latest Ant-Man sequel from our own JimmyO right here.
