Marvel shows no signs of slowing down. It’s not much of a surprise, since every project the studio releases seems to print money. The company’s newest offeing, Thor: Love And Thunder, has been cleaning up at the box office, and their new She-Hulk series is set to come to Disney Plus soon.

It will begin with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania on Februrary 17, 2023, and continue into 2024 with a slew of movies and television shows with your favorite spandex-clad characters.
