Release date: The first two episodes premiere November 24

Taking place after the events of "Avengers: Endgame" post-blip, the series will show more Clint Barton/Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) as he tries to get home to his family before Christmas.

The problem? His Ronin suit from the past shows up, and, with it, the many enemies he made wearing it. As a result, Clint's forced to team up with skilled archer Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld). In the comics, the character eventually takes on the mantle of Hawkeye.

Vera Farmiga also stars as Bishop's mother, Eleanor. Fra Fee will play Kazi, and Alaqua Cox will play Maya Lopez. Episodes are directed by Rhys Thomas along with duo Bert and Bertie. Jonathan Igla serves as head writer.

"Moon Knight" is described as an action-adventure, "Indiana Jones"-type story.

In the comics, Marc Spector is a mercenary who gets resurrected by an Egyptian moon god after being left for dead.

Superhuman lawyer Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany), who is also known as She-Hulk, is getting her own series and she'll be joined by a few familiar Marvel faces. Mark Ruffalo and Tim Roth's the Abomination — from the 2008 "Hulk" film — will also appear on the Disney+ series.

"It's a series about a woman trying to navigate the world and be taken seriously as a working professional despite the fact that she's well over six-foot-seven and green," Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said. "It's a very funny series."

"Since Jennifer Walters is a lawyer who specializes specifically in superhero-oriented legal cases, you never know what Marvel characters are going to pop up from episode to episode," Feige teased.

Kat Coiro and Anu Valia are directing the series. Executive producer Jessica Gao serves as head writer.

Release date: summer 2022

Kamala Khan is a 16-year-old Pakistani-American from New Jersey who becomes Ms. Marvel.

In 2020, Marvel Studios held online auditions for the part of the teen superhero, who will be played by Iman Vallani."

Here's how Marvel Studios describes Khan in its updated show description:

"An aspiring artist, an avid gamer, and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, she is a huge fan of the Avengers — and one in particular, Captain Marvel. But Kamala has always struggled to find her place in the world — that is until she gets superpowers like the heroes she's always looked up to."

Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah ("Bad Boys for Life") along with Meera Menon and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy will direct episodes.

Feige said Vallani will also appear as Ms. Marvel in "Captain Marvel 2," called "The Marvels," co-starring alongside Brie Larson. It's out in 2023.

Move aside "Star Wars." Marvel is giving us a live-action "Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special."

Release date: 2022 holiday season

"Guardians of the Galaxy" director and writer James Gunn is working on the project.

Gunn shared on Twitter that he has been bugging Feige "endlessly" about this special over the years. It's kind of fitting since "GotG" is more or less a parody of "Star Wars," which infamously had its own little holiday special.

"We're going to shoot it during production of 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,'" Feige said. "This special will drop the holiday prior to the next 'Guardians of the Galaxy' film, which hits theaters in 2023."

Samuel L. Jackson returns as Nick Fury once again in "Secret Invasion."

When it will be on Disney Plus: TBD

The comic of the same name follows shapeshifting Skrulls who have infiltrated Earth for years.

"Next to 'Civil War,' 'Secret Invasion' is arguably the biggest crossover comic event of the last 20 years," Feige said.

Along with Jackson, he'll be joined by Ben Mendelsohn who will reprise his role as the Skrull Talos from "Captain Marvel."

This could be a chance to see some dead characters come back to life if Skrulls are pretending to be them.

Get ready for the next generation of Iron Man with "Ironheart."
