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

Disney’s new streaming service is scheduled to launch in late 2019, and has already announced it will host a catalog of original content, including a remake of “Lady and the Tramp”, a Muppet-centered series, a live-action “Star Wars” television series, the revival of “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.” and more.  According to Variety.com you can also add Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to the list.

The online article reports,  Disney is in early development on a number of limited series centered on popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. These series will likely include shows centered on Loki and the Scarlet Witch, along with other beloved superheroes who have yet to appear in their own standalone movies.

The article goes on to say, there’s an important distinction from other Marvel small screen efforts, however. The actors who portrayed these heroes and villains in the Avengers films and their spin-offs, such as Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, are expected to play them in the streaming shows. Moreover, though sources close to the production are staying mum on the cost of the programming, the budgets are expected to be hefty rivaling those of a major studio productions. Each series is expected to include six to eight episodes. Marvel Studios will produce the shows and Kevin Feige, the guru of all things MCU, is expected to take a hands-on role in their development.

Lucasfilm has already announced that Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau has signed on to executive produce and write the live-action Star Wars series that will reportedly cost $100 million and the movies are expected to carry budgets north of $25 million.

Disney’s streaming service will also be the home of Disney’s theatrical releases from 2019 on, including the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4, “Star Wars: Episode IX,” “Toy Story 4,” “Jungle Cruise,” “Frozen 2,” and the live-action remakes of “Dumbo,” “Aladdin,” and “The Lion King.”

The service is scheduled to launch in late 2019, and is reported to have a lower initial price point than Netflix.
