Marvel superhero series’ in the works
DISNEY+'S line-up of Marvel series just keeps growing.
Announced at the D23 expo in California during the Disney+ Showcase, the adventures of Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk are coming to the new platform.
This is actually a bold move for Disney+, as Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk will be the first live-action superhero shows for Disney+ to star characters that are not from the Marvel movies, Decider reports.
Even if you've never heard of Kamala Khan before, you definitely have heard of her favourite superhero: Captain Marvel. Introduced in 2013, Khan actually took up the Ms. Marvel moniker after Carol Danvers took the title of Captain Marvel.
Since then, Kamala Khan has become a mainstay in the Marvel Universe and has served as a Champion, an Avenger, and a solo hero in her own right.
Ms. Marvel, Marvel's most prominent Muslim superhero, is a teenage superhero from Jersey City with shape-changing abilities.

Moon Knight is a mercenary and vigilante that's lurked around the dark corners of the Marvel Universe since 1975. He's had a whole lot of gigs over the years, including working as a TV producer while believing himself to be possessed by an ancient Egyptian moon god. He's a weird one.
She-Hulk is another fan favourite character, initially created in a rush by Stan Lee in order to snag the copyright to a female Hulk character before any TV studio could. She's grown into a beloved mainstay of the Marvel Universe, serving as a member of the Avengers and Fantastic Four while also working as a superhuman lawyer.
Disney+'s line-up of superhero shows kicks of with The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in 2020.
Meanwhile, the streaming service will also have an Obi-Wan Kenobi series, starring Ewan McGregor.
Disney revealed earlier this week it would launch its streaming service in Australia on November 19, one week behind its US live date.
