Last month, one of the stars of Marvel Studios’ upcoming Ms. Marvel series said that the show would not premiere on Disney+ until Summer 2022. Well, it seems that the delay is true, as it was revealed during Disney’s quarterly earnings call yesterday.
During the call, CFO Christine McCarthy confirmed that the show will not hit the streaming service until the fourth quarter of 2022. This means that the Iman Vellani-led series will arrive sometime in either July, August or September of next year.
Going into 2021, it was thought that Ms. Marvel would premiere in the fall before Hawkeye. However, in July and than August, it was revealed that the Clint Barton-based series would be released first (November 24) and that Ms. Marvel had been delayed to 2022.
No reason was given during the call on why it had been pushed all the way back to next summer. Some think that it’s a tactical decision by Disney to help boost subscribers during that quarter, while others think it’s because the show is just not ready. Hopefully will find out one day.
Along with Vellani, Ms. Marvel will star Laurel Marsden, Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, and Yasmeen Fletcher.
Don’t be surprised if we get a trailer for the series during Disney+ Day tomorrow.
