Upcoming Marvel shows on Disney+
It’s safe to assume that every (non-Sony) Marvel movie and TV show will come to Disney+, considering Disney owns the rights to the comic giant. So, with that in mind, we’re going to focus on the Disney+ exclusives here and not the movies that’ll go through cinemas first.
I Am Groot
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law
