Marvel Studios has officially announced its first live-action Disney+ show for 2024. Delays caused by the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes have impacted Marvel’s Phase 5 plans, resulting in the rescheduling of several movies and Disney+ series. As fans eagerly await new releases, the MCU’s future has become uncertain. In this article, we’ll explore the confirmed 2024 Disney+ show and the challenges Marvel faces due to the strikes.

The Delayed Marvel Universe

The strikes in Hollywood have disrupted Marvel Studios’ meticulously planned Phase 5, which was set to feature an unprecedented number of releases in 2024. While Loki (October 6) and The Marvels (November 10) will close out 2023, the fate of subsequent projects remains uncertain.

Echo’s Debut in 2024

Marvel Studios has now officially revealed that Echo is slated for a January 2024 release on Disney+. This update solidifies the delay of the series, which was originally scheduled for November 29, 2023. Echo will become the first live-action MCU show of the new year.

Other Delayed MCU Series

“Echo” is one of seven live-action MCU series facing delays, with release dates yet to be confirmed for the following:

  1. What If…? Season 2 – Christmas 2023
  2. X-Men ’97 – Early 2024
  3. Agatha: Darkhold Diaries – Fall 2024
  4. Ironheart
  5. Daredevil: Born Again
  6. Wonder Man

These delays have left fans eagerly anticipating updates on their favorite Marvel characters and storylines.

Movie Delays

In addition to the series delays, several MCU movies originally set for 2024 releases have been pushed back. Notably, Deadpool 3, starring Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, is among the affected films. Furthermore, Captain America: Brave New World and Thunderbolts face potential delays, raising concerns about the overall MCU release schedule.

What to Expect from Echo

Echo will follow the journey of Alaqua Cox’s character, who made her debut in 2021’s Hawkeye. The series will delve into Echo’s Native American heritage and her personal growth. Notably, Echo will introduce fan-favorite characters Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin, promising unique storytelling and expanding the MCU in uncharted directions.

As a trailblazing addition to the MCU, Echo represents the franchise’s second deaf hero and the first live-action hero of Native American descent. Her solo series promises to add a thrilling new dimension to the ever-expanding Marvel Studios narrative.

Marvel Studios’ announcement of Echo as the first live-action Disney+ show for 2024 provides fans with a glimpse of what’s to come, despite the challenges posed by the ongoing strikes. As Marvel navigates these delays, viewers can anticipate the expansion of the MCU’s storytelling and the introduction of exciting new heroes when Echo premieres on Disney+ in January 2024.
