Loki, Scarlet Witch could get limited series on Disney streaming platform

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

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.

Variety reports that the new, still-unnamed streaming service will now include new live-action limited series focusing on various Marvel Cinematic Universe characters, including Loki, Scarlet Witch, and more. The actors who play these roles on the big screen, such as Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, are also expected to play them for Disney's streaming shows.

Marvel and Disney have confirmed exactly none of this, but plans will begin to leak out more and more as Disney's late 2019 launch date approaches. The new shows will likely be centered around Loki and Scarlett Witch, along with other popular characters who have yet to get their own solo movies.

It's also thought that the limited series will focus on "second-tier" characters and not superheroes that already have their own standalone films.

Even though shows like Daredevil and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. take place in the MCU, there has always existed a disconnect between those shows produced by Marvel TV and the movies produced by Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios.

But then around 5 p.m., the family's lawyers were alerted to some apparent breaking news in the investigation into Jean's death. David Menschel, an Oregon-based criminal defense attorney and activist, called the release of the search warrant "propaganda".

It's a tough market to really make a dent in, as streaming providers keep popping up with just enough content to tempt you (CBS All Access, DC Universe) and the giants in the field (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon) have a number of must-watch shows that are racking up awards.

So the real excitement comes at the news of the Scarlet Witch show.

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. With Marvel Television and Marvel Studios both part of Marvel Entertainment, the same Disney subsidiary, the corporate proximity allowed for greater integration with the MCU, directly tying into the events of 2013's Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World, with 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier having an especially seismic impact on the series.

What do you think?

These will represent a big shift from Marvel's other MCU efforts, which have generally not featured stars from the films.
