Disney shared on Monday that a Disney and Marvel Games Showcase is coming on September 9 at 1:00 p.m. PT / 4:00 p.m. ET. The showcase will be hosted by Blessing Adeoye Jr, part of the cast on Kinda Funny. 

The press release confirms that there'll be some new announcements at the show, with new content for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and new information on Marvel's Midnight Suns, which was recently delayed to sometime before March 2023. Additionally, there will also be a first look at the new Marvel game from Skydance New Media and former Uncharted director Amy Hennig. The game is being described as a "blockbuster action-adventure game."

Currently, there are a large number of Marvel and Star Wars games that have been announced, though details are scarce on numerous titles. In addition to a Marvel game, Skydance New Media is also working on a Star Wars title, while other currently-announced projects include a Star Wars game from Ubisoft, Respawn and Electronic Arts' three upcoming games including Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, Quantic Dreams' Star Wars: Eclipse, and the reportedly indefinitely-delayed Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake from Aspyr.

The upcoming Marvel lineup is a bit thinner, but Insomniac Games and PlayStation Studios are currently working on Marvel's Spider-Man 2 and Marvel's Wolverine, while Electronic Arts is rumored to be working on a Black Panther game.
