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

Adjust Comment Print

As Disney gets ready to launch their first foray into the increasingly crowded streaming service market. The potential to bring more Avengers characters to television may also prove to be a big selling point for Disney's streaming service.

According to the report, several Marvel heroes like Loki and the Scarlet Witch, among others, are going to get their own limited spinoff series on the new platform.

It'll be interesting to see how the various limited series shape up: Loki is dead after Infinity War, and expected to stay that way, which would mean his series would have to be a prequel.

If you're frustrated by your favorite character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe not getting their own movie yet, this might be their chance.

There’s a new Chrissy Teigen meme and it’s everything
Chrissy Teigen has been letting fans mispronounce her last name for years . "They can call me Janet and I won't", she wrote . Over the summer, she shared close-up images of her stretch marks, and explained to fans that they're part of her "new body".

Each show will comprise of about six to eight episodes while Kevin Feige is expected to take a hands-on role in their development. While other Marvel-based TV shows produced by Disney, including Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. If the original performers like Hiddleston and Olsen are involved then it gives the new Marvel shows a more solidified relationship with the films.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers 4 is expected to star Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Paul Rudd, Jeremy Renner, Josh Brolin and Chris Pratt. Characters who have already been featured in a standalone movie, such as Iron Man and Captain America, will not be featured in the shows.

This is big news, and only bolsters Disney Play's power. Not to mention newly announced Star Wars and High School Musical TV shows. The reluctant hero and sometimes villain has always been one of the most fun characters to watch because of his constant changes in allegiance and unpredictability and should make for some compelling stories in his own TV show. Will Loki and Scarlet Witch shows carry enough weight to hook viewers?

Fans want to see a show centered around the Winter Soldier, and with so many years where we don't know what happened to him, it would be fun to explore.
