Latest Marvel News: Disney Plus release slate falling into total disarray only increases Phase Five fears as ‘Daredevil’ clashes with the actual devil for attention
The MCU’s Phase Five is still only one project in, but the alarm bells are already ringing thanks to an anxiety-inducing update from Disney Plus which practically outright promises that multiple delays are on the way. In happier, albeit hellish, news, however, Daredevil: Born Again reaches some exciting new developments, even as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen has to compete with the actual devil himself for the Marvel fandom’s attention.
Nothing to see here, just Disney Plus removing all release information for every Marvel series in the works
The writing’s been on the wall for Marvel’s upcoming streaming series for a while now, with widespread reports pointing to the various MCU TV series getting pushed back.

From one devil to another, Sacha Baron Cohen’s Mephisto looks to be getting his own streaming special
Disney Plus is clearly set to take a more satanic turn than subscribers may have expected as, in addition to Born Again, Marvel Studios is also working on another streaming release set to star the actual devil. Following on from talk of Sacha Baron Cohen playing the MCU’s Mephisto, the latest rumors have it that the Borat actor is headed for his own Special Presentation. Given what we know of the studio’s Disney Plus slate going haywire, this might seem a little surprising, but maybe this is the devil’s bargain we have to accept to get Mephisto in the franchise at long last.
Downbeat MCU diehards may be convinced that Avengers: Secret Wars is going to suck, but it’s no secret that more of the latest Marvel news is coming your way soon.
