As per the new plan, Marvel Studios will focus on specific characters and will move away from special presentations.
It seems that Marvel Studios is undergoing significant changes in its work processes, with Kevin Feige revamping the entire system at the studio. Recent reports suggest that there will be a shift away from random stories for Disney+ shows, emphasizing quality over quantity. The latest rumor indicates that the studio plans to turn many fan-popular intellectual properties (IPs) into TV shows, with a more detailed team overseeing the projects.
While the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films have undergone substantial developments, with only Deadpool 3 scheduled for 2024, the focus on TV shows is becoming prominent. The studio aims to create character-driven, detailed shows, possibly to re-establish its presence in the TV space. According to Scooper Daniel Richtman, Marvel Studios is considering developing shows for some of its biggest IPs that haven't been explored yet.
With Marvel Spotlight already in place, featuring shows like Echo, the studio has reportedly put a halt on special presentations. The rumor suggests that Marvel is contemplating a variety of characters for these new-style shows, including selected members from the X-Men, The Punisher, Ghost Rider, Alpha Flight, The Runaways, Jessica Jones, and more.
Notably, characters like The Punisher and Jessica Jones had Netflix shows dedicated to them, and reviving them under the Marvel Spotlight banner could be a strategic move. Fans have long awaited the inclusion of Ghost Rider in the MCU, making it a significant fan service if the character is brought into the TV realm.
An earlier update hinted at Marvel Studios adopting a more traditional approach, with dedicated showrunners for each show overseeing their specific projects. This marks a departure from the previous method of addressing issues post-production, aligning more closely with the structured approach of filmmaking.
