2024 Could Turn Out To Be Rocking For The MCU

Success and failures aside, Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios have always pushed the envelope when it comes to ambitious storytelling. The franchise is geared up for a packed 2024 which includes the highly anticipated Deadpool 3. But the Ryan Reynolds starrer isn’t the only marquee MCU project for the year.

Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool 3 could be the lucky charm for the MCU in 2024

In a press release, Disney officially laid out the plans for Marvel television shows that will be released on Disney+ in 2024. Among them is Echo, which is already confirmed to air on January 10th, while Agatha: Darkhold Diaries and the animated revival series X-Men ‘97 are also looking at a release this year, with the dates still to be announced.


With a few more Marvel animated series having completed production and awaiting release, 2024 may just be the MCU’s big year after the last few mediocre outings on the big screen. Currently, Deadpool 3 looks to be the franchise’s talisman and the lucky charm that could get Marvel back on track. With Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman already garnering a lot of hype, the MCU looks to be heading in the right direction.
