Loki, Scarlet Witch and other Marvel heroes to get own TV series
LOS ANGELES: Recently reports came to light that Disney is soon to launch its own version of Netflix and what better way to launch a website than introducing Marvel’s superhero series!
The entertainment giant is in early development on an ambitious plan for a number of limited series centered on popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
These series will likely include Loki and the Scarlet Witch, along with other beloved superheroes who might not be bestowed with their own stand alone Movies.
The actors who portrayed the characters on the big screen i.e Tom Hiddleston (Loki) and Elizabeth Oslen (Scarlett Witch) are expected to play the same characters on the small screens too.
Reportedly, Disney has set aside a huge budget for these series and they are expected to be blockbuster hit.
Marvel Studios will produce the shows and Kevin Feige, the Godfather of anything associated with Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, is expected to be closely involved with the production.
As companies such as Netflix and Amazon continue to grow their user base, Disney is trying to find a way to establish a toehold in the streaming revolution upending Hollywood.
Marvel TV Studios and Disney have been active with shows that include ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and Netflix’s “Daredevil,” but sources say those shows will stay under Marvel TV banner with these limited series set under Marvel Studios.
Furthermore, the Avengers that have gotten their own movies like Iron Man and Captain America will not be featured in the series with the studios focusing on characters who have served as second tier characters in the MCU.
