There's so much to dive into when we're talking about Marvel. So many franchises, so many characters, so many stories, so many products. From the many Marvel Movies that come out each year, to the many Marvel TV Shows that come out each year, to the less frequent but generally far worse Marvel Games that grace us with their presence, you could more or less swim in an ocean of Marvel content if you wanted to.
It really is the golden age of comic book and superhero content, isn't it? DC even seem to be turning the ship around with great movies like The Batman and Joker impressing us in a way that previous DCU movies haven't been able to. Still, nothing comes close to what Marvel has managed to achieve in terms of pure quantity, scale, and quality. Whilst there have been duds, the vast majority of Marvel Content has been darn-good, and that's a truly extraordinary statement to be able to make.
Fortunately, Marvel has an insane number of television shows due out this year. Just a forking wild number of different shows. Some have already started, some are in their second season, and some are brand new. All are Marvel and all are somehow superhero related. In other words, if your body is ready for superhero content then you ain't going to be disappointed by 2022...
Which Marvel Shows Are Coming in 2022?
There are already five Marvel shows coming out in 2022, including Moon Knight (which started only a few months ago). That is almost a new show every two months and, if you think about it, means that you are all going to need to really keep up-to-date if you want to watch everything. There's going to be some serious overlap! Anyway, here are the five Marvel shows that you can expect to release throughout 2022:
|Marvel Show||Release Date|
|Moon Knight||March 30, 2022|
|Ms. Marvel||June 8, 2022|
|She-Hulk||August 17, 2022|
|Secret Invasion||Unconfirmed, Late-2022|
|What If...? (Season 2)||Unconfirmed, Late-2022|
To be honest, we're not really sure that Secret Invasion will come out in 2022, and we could be seeing it in early 2023. That being said, there has been no official announcement regarding this, so we are not going to include that speculation here. What we will say, though, is that Moon Knight has already started and Ms. Marvel is due out soon!
In terms of everything else, though, we have a few little theories. One is that She-Hulk will probably be terrible. I mean, come on, the concept of this spin-off is just too tedious to really think anything different. The Hulk was never a legitimately "good" character so to givie him this kind of spin-off just seems incredibly silly, and we're certainly not getting our hopes up. In terms of What If...? (Season 2), we expect to see it later this year, but there is also a possibility there that it could get pushed back a bit.
Moon Knight (March 30, 2022)
Moon Knight debuted back in March and has been blowing our socks off ever since. It's short six-episode run meant that the show stayed fresh and didn't overstay its welcome, and that's something which a lot of American television programs could learn from (seriously, fork off with those 20-something episode seasons!). This show follows a character called Marc Spector, who is a mercenary who has a dissociative identity disorder and ends up in the middle of an Egyptian-god related mystery. Sounds bizarre, doesn't it? Well, it is Marvel after all, but this one is pretty dark. In fact, one of our writers once called this show "the most violent MCU addition yet".
Ms. Marvel (June 8, 2022)
Ms. Marvel is starting unbelievably soon and follows Kamala Khan, a fangirl of the Avengers. In particular, this badass kid is a massive fan of Captain Marvel, and wants to be just like her when she grows up. That's all well and good, until Kamala inevitably finds herself developing superpowers and being required to save the world. What a shocking surprise, right? The protagonist of a Marvel show turns to be a superhero! Shock, horror! Jokes aside, Ms. Marvel looks to be a pretty sweet little kids show, and we're intrigued to see how it turns out. Fingers crossed, right?
She-Hulk (August 17, 2022)
This one is looking a bit tedious, if we're honest with you. She-Hulk follows a female character called Jennifer who (much like Ms. Marvel) ends up with superpowers. In She-Hulk's case, these powers are less cool and more... forked up. She turns green and basically into a female Hulk. Holy cow with a basketball, that would be one terrible Monday morning, wouldn't it? "Why am I so green?" "Why do I have this uncontrollable rage?" "What did you do to me, Bruce, you creepy wanker!" Jokes about She-Hulk's skin tone aside (Hulk-racist!), this looks... incredibly average. Honestly, I am not too thrilled about this particular show.
Secret Invasion (Unconfirmed, Late-2022)
This comic book crossover is being developed as a limited series for Disney+ and will be based on the comic strips of the same name. In Secret Invasion, a bunch of well-known Marvel characters look set to come together to secretly confront a group of baddies that are probably planning some kind of terrible retribution upon mankind... for some reason or another. Secret Invasion actually could turn out to be awesome, but as we stated earlier, it does seem pretty likely that this one will be pushed back to 2023. Fingers crossed that doesn't happen, though it would be at least a little reprieve from this constant stream of Marvel content!
What If...?, Season 2 (Unconfirmed, Late-2022)
The first season of What If...? received mixed reviews, so there's a lot to improve upon in the show's second season. This animated anthology is based on the Marvel Comics of the same name and continues the trend of multiverse content that seems to be tearing the world up at the moment. Honestly, I haven't seen it. I have nothing to add. However, some people like it, it has an okay critic score on Metacritic, and could be a nice little watch for late-2022. If it doesn't get delayed. Everything is getting delayed at the moment, though, so it could very well get delayed. Hopefully not, I guess?
So there you have it, folks: every Marvel Show to grace our presence in the year of our lord 2022. These shows will pretty much all come to Disney+ over the course of the year, available for streaming in all sorts of definitions on all kinds of devices. It's all very exciting, if you're not burnt out on Marvel. We won't blame you if you are, but we do have to admit that Moon Knight has got our juices flowing again over these last few weeks. Get hyped!
