Marvel Studios has announced a whole new expanding slate of series’ and logos for Disney Plus with ‘X-Men ’97,’ ‘Spider-Man: Freshman Year,’ and ‘Marvel Zombies’ amongst them.
The announcement saw Marvel formally announce ‘Echo’ a live-action series spinning off Alaqua Cox’s character from the upcoming ‘Hawkeye’ series. Also announced were several animated series including ‘Spider-Man: Freshman Year’ and ‘Marvel Zombies’. A second season of ‘What If’ was confirmed, a Summer 2022 release window for ‘Ms. Marvel,’ new logos for ‘She-Hulk’ and ‘Secret Invasion’ were revealed, and the recently announced Agatha Harkness series finally revealed a title.
Spider-Man Freshman Year will be tied to the MCU while also evoking Marvel’s deeper history, with an aesthetic approach that, according to a press release, “celebrates the character’s early comic book roots.” This show will follow Peter Parker on his journey to becoming Spider-Man within the MCU, suggesting the show might dramatize this Peter’s origin story.
X-Men ’97 will reach back to its own origin story and will be a continuation of the beloved 1990s “X-Men” animated series that ran for five seasons on the Fox network from 1992 through 1997.
