During Disney+ Day 2021, it was revealed that an animated ‘Marvel Zombies’ TV series was in development for Disney+, with Zeb Wells serving as the writer and executive producer.

At San Diego Comic-Con 2022, it was announced that the series would be rated TV-MA and would premiere in 2024. In an interview on October 8, 2022, Zeb Wells shared that the first season would consist of four episodes. On November 28, 2023, Iman Vellani confirmed her involvement.

Iman also hinted at being the main character of the project, which the most recent reports from Cosmic Circus’ Alex Perez confirmed.

As far as the main villain goes, reports hint at Zombie Scarlet Witch taking on that role. ‘Marvel Zombies’ is the first spinoff derived from ‘What If…?’ animated series, set to continue the universe established during ‘What If…Zombies!?’ episode.

Not much is known regarding the plot of the series except for the fact that it won’t be a direct adaptation of the famous comic storyline, but we can assume that it’s going to have plenty of gore and action sequences. Brad Winderbaum recently confirmed the show’s rating stating that it’s going to be intense and will try to honor the comics storyline at least in regard to not “pulling its punches.”

This aligns with the reports that ‘Marvel Zombies’ will be released under Marvel Spotlight, just like ‘Echo’ was. The official description for the spotlight is that the series released under it are usually standalone and character-driven, but we can also assume that the “spotlight” projects are also more mature in nature.

Marvel Studios will focus more on mature content and animation in the upcoming years, especially now that the release of ‘Echo’ was relatively successfully received, as well as ‘X-Men ’97’, the show that debuted with 100 % on Rotten Tomatoes.
