Marvel Shows Shift Premiere Dates Due To Strikes & New Disney+ Strategy

Similar to how Disney changed up its feature release schedule due to the strikes, it’s doing the same with Marvel series. However, it’s a little more than that as the Kevin Feige-run studio is looking to make the best product possible for its fervent fanbase. In addition, Disney+ is making less product, so the studio is spacing out its event programming.

Loki Season 2 is the only series sticking to its premiere date of October 6. The second season had the biggest debut for a trailer of any Disney+ series, with Season 1 the most watched Marvel series on Disney+.
