Marvel 2024 is going to be a different year than recent years in the MCU. Between strikes, fired actors and poor-performing movies and shows, Kevin Feige & Co. needs to figure out a new plan. Case in point? There are only three Marvel TV shows with tentative release windows and "Deadpool & Wolverine" is the only Marvel movie in 2024.

Marvel 2024 calendar

"Echo": Out now
"X-Men '97": March 20
"Deadpool & Wolverine": July 26
"Agatha: Darkhold Diaries": Late 2024
"Eyes of Wakanda": TBD 2024
"Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man": TBD 2024
"Marvel Zombies": TBD 2024
"What If...?" season 3: TBD 2024 (likely Dec. 2024)

That's right, this year is likely not being filled with the same Skrulls, multiverses and other trappings we've come to expect from Marvel in recent years. However, there are still quite a few upcoming Marvel movies and shows already announced for release beyond this year.

Are you curious to see what's coming to theaters and Disney Plus? Scroll down to find out more. Just remember since we're talking about the upcoming MCU slate, we also get into everything that's come before, in all the multiverses. So consider this your friendly neighborhood spoiler alert.

If you need to catch up before reading on, make sure to check out our guide to watching the Marvel movies in order. And since mutants are now officially part of the MCU, you may want to catch up on the X-Men movies too.

Marvel TV shows coming in 2024

'Echo' (Out now)

Starring Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez, "Echo" picks up after the events of the Hawkeye miniseries. Maya returns to her hometown to come to terms with her dark past and start embracing her Native American roots, but clearly, things go awry at some point. Marvel swears you don’t need to have done your homework before watching this show, dubbing it as the first “Spotlight” series. That means it's a show that is more character-driven rather than a vehicle to move the MCU story forward. So even though Kingpin, a.k.a. Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) and Daredevil, a.k.a. Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) are returning, it should be okay if you’re unfamiliar with them.

All five episodes are already out, so feel free to binge-watch.

'X-Men '97' (Early 2024)

Marvel finally dropped a trailer for "X-Men 97" and it looks awesome. The nostalgia came roaring back as soon as I started watching — in no small part to the show's animation.

This show picks up seemingly right after the events of  "Graduation Day," the series finale of "X-Men: The Animated Series." This episode saw Professor X taken to the Shi'ar home world to try and save him from dying. But for those left on Earth, Charles Xavier is dead.

That means others must pick up the pieces, and it looks like there will be two different mutants leading that charge. Scott Summers looks set to try and take over command of the X-Men as Cyclops, but there's just one problem — Xavier's will left everything to ... Magneto.

Streaming on Disney Plus starting March 20

'Agatha: Darkhold Diaries' (Fall 2024)

Formerly known as "Agatha: House of Harkness" and "Agatha: Coven of Chaos," we're fairly confident that this latest attempt at alliteration is going to stick. "Agatha: Darkhold Diaries" stars Kathryn Hahn reprising as the witch Agatha Harkness, whom we met in "WandaVision." Agatha has broken out of her prison in Westfield, New Jersey and now must team up with a team of allies — including Aubrey Plaza — to regain her wicked powers. We've seen reports pegging the show's release date as early Fall 2024, but have yet to see anything more concrete than that.

Streaming date on Disney Plus TBD

'Eyes of Wakanda' (TBD 2024)

“Throughout Wakandan history, brave warriors have been tasked to travel the world retrieving dangerous vibranium artifacts. This is their story.” That's the official description for "Eyes of Wakanda" according to Marvel (h/t Variety). This animated series is currently slated for 2024, but unfortunately, we don't have more specifics than that. Like everything else coming in 2024, it will be part of the MCU's Phase 5.

Streaming date on Disney Plus TBD

'Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man' (TBD 2024)

Formerly known as "Spider-Man: Freshman Year," this animated Marvel show takes place in an alternate timeline where Norman Osbourne was Peter Parker's mentor rather than Tony Stark, according to an interview with Marvel Studios's Brad Winderbaum. We don't have a concrete release date for "Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man" yet, but given it was shown at the December 2023 "What If...?" screening, we are confident it's on track for a 2024 release date.

Streaming date on Disney Plus TBD

'Marvel Zombies' (TBD 2024)

Marvel's What If coming to Disney Plus

This show may not come in 2024 given its absence from recent press releases and screenings, but the most recent release date for it we have is 2024 (h/t Variety) as a four-part series. This series would pick up from the events of "What If...?" season 1 episode 5 "What If... Zombies?!" so watch that on Disney Plus if you want an idea of what to expect. But obviously, expect zombies.

You can also — reportedly — expect Ms. Marvel. In an interview with The Direct, "Ms. Marvel" star Iman Vellani said she's been recording lines for Marvel Zombies and that her character is the center of the show. "Knowing Kamala [Ms. Marvel] is going to interact with some really cool people, even if it's just animation, is so special in a lot of ways."

A rumor also suggests we could see a Marvel character recast. According to Comic Book Movie, Marvel tipster CanWeGetToast says a new Fist of Khonshu will appear in Marvel Zombies. This may not be Moon Knight, and even if it is, voice actors for the animated Marvel shows don't always line up with their live-action counterparts, so don't take this as confirmation that Oscar Isaac won't return to the MCU one day. But it is an interesting development.

Streaming date on Disney Plus TBD

'What if...?' season 3 (TBD 2024)

Somehow, despite having no official release date and barely being on the radar, Marvel's "What if...?" season 3 already has promotional images and a teaser trailer. The animated anthology series just wrapped up its second season in December 2023, so it wouldn't be a surprise if season 3 put a cap on 2024 in a similar fashion. So far, we can expect Bucky Barnes, Red Guardian, Ant-Man, Sam Wilson as Captain America and more to appear in an episode of season 3.

Streaming date on Disney Plus TBD

Marvel movies coming in 2024

'Deadpool & Wolverine' (July 26)

We finally got a trailer for the third Deadpool movie — officially titled "Deadpool & Wolverine." Ryan Reynolds dropped a short teaser as a Super Bowl commercial and then put up a slightly longer trailer on YouTube at the same time.

A lot gets covered in this two-and-a-half-minute-long trailer. Most importantly, it looks like "Loki" mattered! The Time Variance Authority from the Marvel TV show has abducted Deadpool in this movie trailer and they — led by Matthew Macfayden as Paradox — are recruiting Deadpool to be a hero. Or as Deadpool puts it, "Marvel Jesus."

It remains to be seen if any of our friends from the TVA will show up in this, though if Owen Wilson's Mobius shows up it wouldn't completely shock me. But regardless of who else joins this cast, the headliner is Hugh Jackman's return as Wolverine. We don't get much of Wolverine in the trailer (just a shadow) but it certainly has us wanting more.

Arrives in theaters on July 26
