Marvel Won’t Release More Than 3 Movies And 2 TV Shows Per Year


It’s been revealed by Disney’s CEO, Bob Iger, that Marvel Studios will not release more than 3 movies and 2 TV shows per year. This, I think, is good news because we were getting way too many Marvel Studios movies and TV shows per year when Bob Chapek was in charge of the company.

It was very much a case of quantity, not quality. It seems as though Iger wants to bring it back to quality, not quantity, which is what it should have been all along!

Iger revealed this during a quarterly earnings call on Tuesday. Here’s what the Disney CEO had to say on the matter:

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. And we’re working hard on what that path is.

Iger then went on to reveal that Marvel has “a couple of good films in ’25 and then we’re heading to more ‘Avengers,’ which we’re extremely excited about”.

The Disney CEO then added:

Overall, I feel great about the slate. It’s something that I’ve committed to spending more and more time on. The team is one that I have tremendous confidence in and the IP that we’re mining, including all the sequels that we’re doing, is second to none.

As far as Marvel’s TV offerings are concerned, Iger revealed that a portion of the upcoming series, a slate that includes Kathryn Hahn-led WandaVision spinoff Agatha, set for release was “a vestige of basically a desire in the past to increase volume.”

Why does Disney make so many sequels…?

Iger was also asked about Disney’s recent focus on making sequel movies rather than original films. The person asking the question added that they were focusing more on franchise films. Here’s what Iger had to say on the matter:

We’re gonna balance sequels with originals. Specifically in animation, we had gone through a period where our original films and animation, both Disney and Pixar, were dominating. We’re now swinging back a bit to lean on sequels.
