Marvel Developing MCU TV Shows For Loki, Scarlet Witch And More

That's right, Variety is reporting that characters like Loki, Scarlet Witch and more are all in line to receive their own vehicles on Disney Play, with the Marvel actors (Tom Hiddleston, Elizabeth Olsen, etc.) set to reprise their roles. That's a huge coup and raises the price of each of these potential limited series quite a bit, so Marvel likely wouldn't confirm anything until it had locked contracts from the potential stars anyway. 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. Marvel Studios will produce the shows, with Kevin Feige involved in a hands-on capacity.

Unlike the other Marvel TV shows, which are produced by ABC Studios and fall under the Marvel Television umbrella, these series will hail from Marvel Studios.

The pricey gamble with one of the crown jewels of the Disney film empire is a sign of how much the company has riding on its direct-to-consumer platform.

Disney is keen to enter the space now dominated by Netflix, Amazon and Hulu. It is reportedly due to launch at the end of 2019; details on subscription pricing has yet be announced. Disney is also developing movies - like a live-action Lady and the Tramp - and a $100 million Star Wars series from Jon Favreau.

Neither project has a writer at this time.

De Lannoy said that while she didn't know Ford well, she noted that their school was small, with 70 girls in her class of 1985. That is the view that buoys Republicans and haunts Democrats as the Kavanaugh nomination moves to its final, dramatic phase.

When all is said and done, the Avengers shows could be the streaming service's most ambitious project both in terms of their scope and budget.

Disney's planned streaming subscription service will have plenty of muscle behind it, if a new report from Variety turns out to be accurate.

Storylines for each series are still being teased out, but Disney appears to be holding back some significant fire power for the big screen.

From what we understand, the characters who have yet to receive their own movies are the ones being discussed for this new initiative. Most important, it gives the service something that will attract comic book fans and represents the type of content Netflix would love to get its hands on.
