Loki, Scarlet Witch Getting Own Series On Disney's Streaming Service

Loki Scarlet Witch Loki, Scarlet Witch, Other Marvel Heroes to Get Own TV Series on Disney Streaming Service (EXCLUSIVE)

Variety reports that the company is in early development on a number of limited series centered on Marvel Cinematic Universe characters, with the Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olson-played characters specifically mentioned as being in the works. The report says separate shows centered on Loki and Scarlet Witch are in development, with Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen likely to be reprising their roles-that's right, these standalone series will find the actors from the films filling the same roles. Bigger characters, like Iron Man and Captain America, will remain firmly in the world of film, while the streaming shows focus on "second tier characters".

One of the biggest and most obvious reasons to the success of the MCU has been how they have tied into one another and brought cohesive story threads that have turned the entire eventually 22 films into one big epic story.

Which MCU hero would you like to see make the leap to the small screen? The potential to bring more Avengers characters to television may also prove to be a big selling point for Disney's streaming service. Each series is expected to have between six to eight episodes.

According to Variety, the scope and budget of these new shows could be significantly larger than what we've seen before.

Neither project has a writer at this time. With Feige's attachment to the shows, it means they will fall under the Marvel Studios production banner instead of Marvel TV that houses Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.as well as the various Marvel Netflix shows like Daredevil, Punisher, and Luke Cage. Will Loki and Scarlet Witch shows carry enough weight to hook viewers?

While a tentative release window has been set - sometime in 2019 - information and details regarding Disney's direct-to-consumer streaming service couldn't be seeping through any slower. It is also being reported that Disney intends for the service to cost less than Netflix. The same could be said of Olsen's Scarlet Witch who has a tragic past and backstory before finding a home and love within the Avengers setup.
