According to Bob Iger, Marvel Studios will release no more than 2 or 3 films and 2 series per year

CEO of Disney Bob Iger offered an update on the launch plan for new Marvel Studios films and series. Now they will release no more than two or three movies and two shows a year.

So, up to five Marvel projects a year. There’s still a lot of content in one year, but they’ll make sure things don’t get out of hand.

Iger explained that this is part of Disney’s strategy to reduce production and focus on quality, a strategy “especially true with Marvel”.

He said: “We will slowly decrease the volume and probably go to about two TV series a year instead of what had become four and we will reduce our film production from maybe four a year to two, or a maximum of three, and we” we are working hard on what that path is.

Iger went on to say that Marvel has “a couple of good movies in ’25 and then we’re heading into more ‘Avengers,’ which we’re extremely excited about.”

He added: “Overall, I feel great about the board. It’s something I’ve committed to spending more and more time on. I have a lot of faith in the team and the IP we’re cranking out, including all the sequels we’re making, is second to none.”

As of now, however, the 2025 release calendar features four films from Marvel Studios, inclusive Captain America: Brave New World, Lightning, Fantastic FourAND Lama.

There are also four Marvel movies set for 2026, including the fifth Avengers movie. This year, 2024, we will only have one Marvel movie Deadpool and Wolverinebecause this will make all the money.

As for the TV aspect, Iger says some of the upcoming series are “a vestige of the past desire to turn up the volume.” Upcoming shows include Agatha: Chaos Coven, Daredevil: Born AgainAND Iron heart.

Iger spoke about Disney’s focus on sequels and original films saying the focus is more on franchise films: “We’ll balance the sequels with the originals. Specific to animation, we had gone through a period where our original films and animation, both Disney and Pixar, dominated. Now we’re going back a little bit to lean on the sequels.”

I hate that they lean on sequels. Some of these upcoming sequels include Inside out 2 AND Story of toys 5.

What do you think of Marvel’s release plan? Hopefully the quality of the films will improve moving forward.
