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

It appears that Marvel's contribution will be in the form of "limited series" adaptations of familiar MCU characters, which is insanely smart.

At this time, it isn't known what the stories will be, or where in the MCU timeline they will air.

According to a Variety report, Disney is developing two stand-alone series based on Marvel characters Loki and Scarlet Witch, along with potentially giving superheroes who have not starred in solo movies their own shows. It is also being reported that Disney intends for the service to cost less than Netflix. 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.

The first plans for the live-action Marvel TV shows to help launch Disney's streaming service have been revealed, and they're as surprising as they are exciting.

Good news for anyone anxious that Infinity War - spoiler alert for the three people and Clarence the movie-shy badger who hasn't seen the movie yet - might mean the true end of Loki, or who thought Scarlet Witch didn't have enough to do.

Disney's new streaming service has just made a huge statement to its rivals, and connection to its Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the announcement of MCU mini-series.

Nevertheless, fans of both characters have expressed their excitement over the chance to explore Loki and Scarlet Witch further while others believe that Marvel could have given shows to different heroes.

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. The core heroes of the MCU, such as Captain America and Iron Man, won't be the subjects of these new shows, which will take on a limited series model. Or let's go all out here, how cool would it be to explore the Hulk in a TV setting since Marvel cannot now make a stand-alone movie for him, again this could be set prior to Avengers in the MCU timeline. What writers and directors would you like to see bring them to life?
