Disney CEO Bob Iger reveals plans to release fewer Marvel movies and TV shows each year from 2026.

Disney CEO Bob Iger has revealed that the number of Marvel movies and TV shows released each year will "slowly" decrease from 2026.

Speaking to investors on a conference call on Tuesday, the executive said that he intends to pursue a strategy of quality over quantity, with the aim of releasing two to three MCU films a year and just two shows via Disney+.

"I've worked been working hard with the studio to reduce output and focus more on quality," he said, in quotes reported by The Wrap. "That's particularly true with Marvel movies and television shows. Some of what is coming up as a vestige of basically a desire in the past to increase volume.

"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, to the maximum three. And we're working hard on what that is. We've got a couple of good films in 2025 and then we're heading to more Avengers which we're extremely excited about.

"So overall I feel great about the slate, it's something that I've committed to spending more and more time on, the team is I think 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. I feel really good about what's coming up."

Four Marvel movies are already scheduled for 2025 - Captain America: Brave New World (February), Thunderbolts (May), The Fantastic Four (July) and Blade (November) - while upcoming Disney+ shows include Eyes of Wakanda, Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, Agatha, Daredevil: Born Again and Ironheart.
