Disney is on the verge of unleashing their streaming service. And to do so they want to start with a bang. This is why the monumental company will be preparing a few tv series based on some the most recognized characters from de MCU.
The reports details that since the Avengers have gotten their own movies (like Iron Man and Captain America) they will not be featured in the series. The focus will be shifting towards characters who have served as second tier characters in the MCU.
According to Variety, Disney is in early development of an ambitious plan for a number of limited series. These series will likely include shows focused on Loki and the Scarlet Witch. Other beloved superheroes who have yet to appear in their own standalone movies will follow.
Right off the bat one of the burning questions is if the actors that portrayed them on the big screen will be on these series. The answer so far is yes. Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen will be reprising their roles of Loki and Scarlet Witch.
Details on how these series will unfold have not been mentioned but each series is expected to include six to eight episodes.
On the streaming service, the company has kept the details of the service close to the chest. The only thing that they’ve been very vocal about is that it will likely cost less than Netflix. This will probably be an introductory price as they’ll rise slowly.
The launch date will be at some point in late 2019.
Marvel Studios will produce all the shows. Also, Kevin Feige, the head studios mastermind, is expected to be hands-on on the development.
