Loki, Scarlet Witch Shows Coming To Disney's Streaming Service

Instead, each series will focus on "second-tier" characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While no characters have been confirmed (although with that Variety report, it sounds like Loki and Scarlet Witch are indeed happening) this opens the door to everyone from recent fan favorites like Valkyrie to mainstays like Hawkeye. Still, this is hugely exciting news and better yet, Variety's reporting that each show will have a large budget that rivals a major studio production and consist of one season made up of six to eight episodes. Marvel Studios will produce the shows, with Kevin Feige involved in a hands-on capacity. As though that weren't enough, the report claims the streaming service will serve as a home to series for other MCU characters that have yet to appear in their own solo films.

Disney wants to beat Netflix at the streaming game, and they know just how to do it: by bringing MCU characters to TV.

Which MCU hero would you like to see make the leap to the small screen? With so many streaming services to choose from, it's clear that consumers are getting picky when it comes to deciding where they'd like to spend their hard earned dollars.

There hasn't been any details released on what the shows will be about, whether they will be prequels or sequels (after all, the events of Avengers: Infinity War could put a spanner in the works if we're heading into sequel territory), nor have any writers or directors been attached. Consequently, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Most notably, Loki and Scarlet Witch were listed as two of the shows in development. Marvel TV is run by Jeph Loeb, who reports to Marvel Entertainment CEO Ike Perlmutter. 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. Though, if the effects of the snaps are undone in the fourth film, we could still see the Scarlet Witch's story continued in the TV series.

Little is known about Disney's potential rival to Netflix and Amazon, other than it'll cost less than the former and is set to arrive in late 2019.
