The Disney upfronts had some notable bits from Jimmy Kimmel's roasting of his own company to Bob Iger making an appearance. The big news is the confirmation of Marvel's TV slate dates and some teases on what to expect.

2023 was not a good year for Marvel. The once seemingly unstoppable MCU finally started showing the cracks of age with The Marvels an outright bomb. Combined with the 2023 Hollywood strikes, Marvel decided that Deadpool and Wolverine would be the only theatrical release in 2024 with more held back. 

As for television, the MCU is stronger, although Bob Iger has stated that they only plan to release a couple of MCU movies per year. The upfronts had confirmation on the three top Marvel series, including when fans can expect to see them. 

Agatha All Along

This sequel to WandaVision has had a few title changes, which Disney even mocked in the official teaser. Originally The Darkhold Diaries, it was changed to House of Harkness, then Coven of Chaos. Disney had fun with it by teasing a supposed new title of The Lying Witch With the Great Wardrobe. It's finally settled on Agatha All Along.

The series follows Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn), the evil witch from WandaVision, who was left powerless and trapped in the persona of neighbor Agnes. The show has Agatha regaining her memories and embarking on a quest to regain her power.

The show has a good cast, including Aubrey Plaza and Tony-winning Broadway legend Patti LuPone, who told Deadline the show "looks like a $100 million movie." Hahn added the series is "hilarious and deep."

Agatha All Along is set to premiere with its first two episodes on September 18, to give Hahn and the MCU a witchy air and a perfect series for the Halloween season. 

Daredevil: Born Again

The revival of the Netflix series with Charlie Cox as the blind lawyer turned crimefighter has seen delays, including a full writer overhaul. Supposedly, the focus would be more on Matt Murdock as a lawyer and wouldn't even don his Daredevil suit until Episode 4. It's thus logical Marvel would want to change it up.

Dario Scardapane is the new showrunner and besides Cox, the series also brings back Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson and Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk aka the Kingpin. It's up in the air how much of the Netflix series mythology makes its way into the MCU although it's likely not going to be as violent and gritty.

Not much is known yet about the storyline as the title refers to what many consider the greatest Daredevil story of all time. Written by Frank Miller in 1986, "Born Again" has the Kingpin discovering Matt Murdock's secret identity to destroy his life. 

Speaking to TV Line, Cox noted that it's not quite the same as the Netflix series.

"Not exactly the same, but much closer. And potentially much improved. It's hard to comment because I want to say so much about both the [Netflix] show and this show, and the change that happened, but in the end, the last few months of work we did was… written beautifully and directed beautifully…. Personally, I think it's as intense as we've ever been."

Cox also confirmed the show is set for a March 2025 release date. It may see another slight delay due to production but so far it appears that the Man Without Fear is finally ready to hit the streets again.

There had been rumors this series could be canceled but Disney/Marvel are intent on it. Dominique Thorne reprises her role from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever as Riri Williams, the inventor crafting her own armor. The event included a trailer showing Riri working on a new suit.

Plot details are tight, with Alden Ehrenreich cast in a mystery role. The trailer stated this series has a 2025 release date, but clearly nothing is set in stone yet.

Expect more details to come on all these, including new trailers, but it appears Disney/Marvel are learning from a rough 2023 to push a 2024-25 TV slate that gets things back on track.
