Disney's new streaming service to feature Loki and Scarlet Witch shows

Posted September 20, 2018

However with Disney creating their own streaming network which will see them bring all their new series under one banner, it will make it a lot easier to pull all the narrative strings and create some nice tie-in series that could perhaps get fans even more excited about the ever-expanding universe.

While Loki and Scarlet Witch, who are expected to be played by Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen respectively, were the only characters mentioned, there are plenty of characters in the MCU that could benefit from a show. Like with the first season of Agent Carter, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is expected to take a hands-on role in the development of each series, with the budgets expected to be "hefty", not unlike a studio production. The report from the outlet does state that both Hiddleston and Scarlett Witch actor Elizabeth Olsen are expected to reprise their roles for these shows. However, the report indicates that heroes like Iron Man and Captain America who have already had their own stand alone films will not be featured in the television shows.

Disney is enlisting Earth's Mightiest Heroes as the company prepares to launch its upcoming streaming service. But the trade mag has heard that the series would effectively be miniseries of around six to eight hours, running exclusively on the new Disney service. Disney is also developing movies - like a live-action Lady and the Tramp - and a $100 million Star Wars series from Jon Favreau. No story details for the new shows were referenced in the report.

ET has reached out to Disney for comment. And these aren't going to be scaled down versions of their big screen counterparts, nor will they rely on finding more readily available talent. If they can swing that, it would be a huge game changer as far as Marvel TV entities go. Most notably, Loki and Scarlet Witch were listed as two of the shows in development. That shows just how committed Disney is to getting this streaming service beefed up with big content in order to attract subscribers. We'll see how it all works out when Disney's streaming service touches down sometime in 2019.
