Hello there, and welcome to Marvel at Marvel. This is the number one place to find news about Marvel’s latest shows, comics, and movies. So whether you are an avid watcher of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, have read the comics, or are new to both, welcome!

“She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” Season One ends this week, also ending the television series of Phase 4*. The series is a comedy/action that follows Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslaney), a single lawyer, and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo)’s cousin, who deals with the struggles of becoming a Hulk; including work, dating, and living a normal life. The show has been releasing an episode every Thursday since August 18, totaling eight episodes, with the ninth being the finale. The show is streaming on Disney+, where you can also view almost any other Hulk-related content. There are currently no plans for a second season, although She-Hulk is planned to be integrated into the Avengers in future movies, starting with “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty”, released in 2025.

*Marvel releases their films in “Phases”, with Phase 4 beginning with “WandaVision”.

Announced at New York Comic Con, an event consisting of three limited series, “Marvel’s Voices, The World Outside Your Window”, is set to be released in February 2023. The comic series is meant to celebrate and show Black voices in the Marvel Universe, no matter where they come from. Marvel’s Voices has been a comic series in itself since February 2020, exploring themes of identity and who people are, such as sexuality and racial identity. This new series launches alongside “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” (Not to be confused with the movie), and features a series about the relatively new character Bloodline, daughter of Blade, a vampire hunter, a Silver Surfer story revolving around the new character Ghost Light, and Bishop, a Mutant (X-Men) who wants to guide his students through a new future for Mutantkind. This may be a nice introduction to comic books if you are interested in beginning to read them.

Speaking of Blade, pre-production of his movie, made by Marvel Studios, has been put on hold following struggles with the directorial position and script. Announced in 2019, not much was known about the movie aside from Mahershala Ali, who would be playing Blade himself. Issues with production began with a leak that Ali was unhappy with the script for the movie, requesting changes. Said script apparently “focused on Dracula’s daughter” and “only had 2 action scenes”. Due to this, they are also deeply searching for a new director for the movie, hoping to find a good match for the script. The movie originally planned to release on November 3, 2023, now appears to be released on September 6, 2024.
