Kevin Feige admits that there are too many Marvel series right now on Disney + and anticipates changes


Television has become an important pillar of the MCU in the last two years, with eight series released to date. But fans are increasingly overwhelmed by the volume of content and Kevin Feige (head of Marvel) is willing to rethink the cadence of releases on Disney +.

“I think one of the most powerful aspects of being at Marvel Studios is getting these movies and shows into the zeitgeist,” Feige said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

It’s harder to get into the zeitgeist when there’s so much product out there. and so much ‘content’, as they say, which is a word I hate. But we want Marvel Studios and the MCU projects to stand out. So people will see it as we go into Phase 5 and 6. The pace at which we are releasing Disney+ series will change so that each one has a chance to shine“.

When asked if that meant Marvel would work on spaced out series or put out fewer series per year, Feige replied, “Both, I think.”

Marvel premiered three big series in 2022: Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk: Lawyer She-Hulk, as well as a couple of seasonal specials. In general, all the series were well received, but none equaled the reception of Scarlet Witch and Vision and Loki.

In 2023 they will return. What would happen if…? and Loki, and Echo and Ironheart will be released. The most prominent of these series will be Secret Invasionin which Samuel L. Jackson will reprise his role as Nick Fury at the beginning of one of the main story arcs of the UCM.

Looking ahead to Phase 5

The extensive interview with Feige also touched on other topics, such as Spider-Man 4, Why The Fantastic Four Will Be A “Big Mainstay” For The MCU and much more. On the other hand, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania gives Phase 5 a rocky start with mixed reviews calling it as a film “with a lot of spectacle but little substance”.

“Still, Quantumania functions as a culmination of the Ant-Man saga, a way to jump-start Phase 5, and a promising roadmap for where the Multiverse saga is headed,” we say in our film review.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania opens on February 17, 2023. Check out our full MCU timeline here.
