Marvel TV is shutting down, but some shows will survive

"The decision has been made to complete Marvel TV projects that are now in production, but not continue with any further development", noted the TV division Tuesday. " that will air next summer, but will not continue beyond that".

The current series will be folded into Marvel Studios, Deadline reports.

Marvel Studios is folding its TV division, which has produced shows including "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and Hulu's "The Runaways". These projects will continue, developed by Marvel TV, and even Loeb will remain involved until the transition is complete, but it is expected that there will be "at least a dozen" of layoffs in the near future, as Marvel TV will not develop any other new projects. Zreik will head projects that are now in production. These include the M.O.K.O.K. directed by Patton Oswalt, the monkey assassin show Hit-Monkey, the revival of Howard the Duck and the Chelsea Handler-tuned Tigra & Dazzler show. From the outside looking in, that's why it felt like Marvel's TV shows were out of step with the movies for a long time, with later seasons of Netflix's Defenders shows rarely connecting to the stories of the movies.

In August 2015, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Marvel Studios had been integrated into Walt Disney Studios, meaning Feige would directly report to Disney studio chief Alan Horn, instead of Marvel Entertainment CEO Ike Perlmutter, who had a reputation for micromanaging the studio.

Turkey considers the YPG as a terrorist group and has been infuriated by the supports its allies have given the group. He has also decried NATO's inability to react to what he called Turkey's "crazy" offensive into northern Syria.


While sources state that Hulu and Marvel "remain committed" to making the series and that the Feige-Loeb matter "had little to nothing to do with Marvel's executive restructuring", production on Tigra & Dazzler Show is "paused" to allow time to hire a new showrunner and give them enough time to pull together their creative team.

Whilst it is sad that Marvel TV has to come to an end, fans can look forward to what Marvel Studios is brewing.

Marvel Studios has announced lots of new Disney+ shows including Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, WandaVision, She-Hulk, Moon Knight, Hawkeye and Ms Marvel. The studio is now filming the series in New Orleans, showcasing Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and his new journey as Marvel's next Captain America. There were once five Netflix Marvel shows - Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Punisher, of wildly variable quality - and now they've all been canceled.
