Marvel Studios’ Vision in a newly greenlit Disney+ series.Variety reported yesterday (May 23) that the as-yet-titled series will be helmed by showrunner Terry Matalas, who led the recent seasons of Star Trek: Picard as executive producer. It is currently earmarked for a 2026 release.The report states that Matalas was brought in by Marvel after being impressed by his work on Star Trek: Picard, which has seen Marvel alumni Patrick Stewart heading his first Star Trek outing since 2002 film Star Trek: Nemesis.Bettany last played Vision in the 2021 Disney+ series WandaVision, where the character was resurrected and revamped into White Vision following his death in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War.That year, Bettany revealed in an interview that his contract with Marvel had expired, stating: “I guess it would be difficult to introduce White Vision and not deal with him in some way, but we have not discussed that.”In 2022, Variety reported that a Vision spinoff series was in development by WandaVision creator Jac Schaeffer, who is currently preparing the September 2024 release of Disney+ series – and fellow WandaVision spin-off – Agatha All Along.Earlier this month, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that there will be fewer new entries in the near future for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

By last fall, he’d changed his mind, declaring them not for sale. On interviews and earnings calls since, he’s explained why — most recently at the MoffettNathanson media conference, and in the midst of annual upfront presentations to advertisers.

Marvel Drops ‘Daredevil: Born Again’ and ‘Ironheart’ Trailers at Disney Upfront as Bob Iger and ‘The Bear’ Season 3 Also Stir Up Buzz

Jennifer Maas TV Business Writer The theme of Disney‘s 2024 upfront presentation to advertisers Tuesday was “connections” — and not just because of the running bit started by “Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds and “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” star Rob McElhenney, which involved their constant replaying of a five-second ad spot that said “Connections!” with a Disneyified logo and voiceover. No, the symbol of unity across Disney’s brands was made up of a slew of announcements from Marvel, and about such other high-wattage projects as “Star Wars,” “The Bear,” “Only Murders in the Building,” the “Wizards of Waverly Place” sequel series, “9-1-1,” Ryan Murphy’s new slate of FX titles and more franchises with intersecting talent. Disney kicked off the event when Oscar-winning “Poor Things” star Emma Stone introduced the Mouse House’s big boss, Bob Iger — a job like that would traditionally go to a top ABC star.

Marvel to release fewer movies in future, Disney CEO confirms

Marvel Cinematic Universe in the future, according to the CEO of Disney.Bob Iger was speaking to Wall Street analysts when he confirmed that he plans to release no more than three new Marvel films per year, as well as only two television series in the MCU.The studio head said that the plan is part of an overall strategy at Disney to focus on quality rather than quantity, with that applying particularly to their Marvel properties.“We’re slowly going to decrease volume and go to probably about two TV series a year instead of what had become four and reduce our film output from maybe four a year to two, or a maximum of three,” he said. “And we’re working hard on what that path is.”He continued that the MCU will have “a couple of good films in ’25 and then we’re heading to more Avengers, which we’re extremely excited about.”“Overall, I feel great about the slate.
