Film Teasers

Disney is planning to reevaluate its slate of films and TV shows from Marvel Studios, with the company set to reduce its output from the comic book franchise studio.

On Disney’s fiscal Q2 earnings call, Disney CEO Bob Iger told analysts that the company is finally moving away from “a vestige, basically a desire in the past to increase volume.”

“I’ve been working hard with the studio to reduce output and focus more on quality, that’s particularly true with Marvel,” he added.

What will that mean for Marvel’s upcoming films and TV shows? This year’s slate, highlighted by Deadpool & Wolverine, won’t be impacted, but it will be felt in future years.

“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 at the maximum three,” Iger added. “And we’re working hard on what that path is, we’ve got a couple of good films in ’25 and then we’re heading to more Avengers, which we’re extremely excited about. [Avengers: The Kang Dynasty is listed for 2026]”

“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,” he continued.

The future of Marvel has been a hot-button topic for Disney, with the last few films underperforming. By reducing both film and TV output, Iger is suggesting that the company plans to make the films more of an event, rather than a quarterly obligation.
