MCU is probably one of those franchises whose films have done excellent business at the box office. However, a few characters introduced in these movies got very less screen space in comparison to the main characters.
Following the launch of Disney+, Marvel Studios decided to offer these standalone characters their own series. This was done so that audiences can know more about these characters. The recent entries like WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Hawkeye and Loki have received a positive response.
Another name that would be included this year in the list is She-Hulk. Created by Jessica Gao, it is based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. It was announced back in 2019 and Kat Coiro was bought in as the director.
